Innovative Technical Blends Offer Unparalleled Breathability, Wicking and Comfort
(Växjö, Sweden) – Galvin Green – the world’s leading maker of functional golf clothing for serious players and the No. 1 global golf partner of GORE-TEX – announces the introduction of its Spring/Summer 2016 Ventil8 range of polos, trousers, shorts and skorts engineered for superior moisture management in excessive heat.
Designed by golfers for golfers, Ventil8 garments are crafted from textile fibers that draw moisture away from the body and disperse it over a large area to promote rapid evaporation. Working in concert with this innovative, ultralight material are ventilation panels for maximum air flow. Additional characteristics include a UV protection rating of 20+ and permanent antibacterial features for exceptional odor control.
“The research that goes into our Ventil8 line is what makes it a best-seller with our green grass partners and consumers,” says Andrew Creed, President of Galvin Green USA. “Even in the hottest conditions Ventil8 fibers create a cool and comfortable body climate.”
Part of the Cool Layer in the brand’s heralded Multi-Layer Concept, the Ventil8 collection is highlighted by polos featuring body-mapping technology. Produced in a variety of styles for men and women, the shirts transport moisture and excess heat away twice as quickly as a conventional polyester golf shirt. In addition, each Ventil8 item is easily cared for by regular machine washing.
Based in Sweden, Galvin Green is a pure golf brand that developed the sport’s first apparel layering system – the Multi-Layer Concept – more than a decade ago. This distinctive approach uses leading-edge fabric technologies to ensure the dry comfort, thermal regulation and outer protection that helps players optimize performance.
Galvin Green was recently selected as the Official Team Supplier of Outerwear to the 2016 and 2018 European Ryder Cup Teams. Through this partnership, the company will provide its premium waterproof garments to the captains, vice captains, team members and their caddies during the upcoming matches at Hazeltine National Golf Club (2016) and Le Golf National (2018).
Also distinguishing the brand is its ‘Dress for the Weather’ app. Free on the App Store or Google Play, the app provides detailed five-day forecasts for thousands of courses in the U.S., Canada, the U.K. and Europe, and recommends ideal layering solutions for expected levels of heat, precipitation and wind speed.
