First waterproof streamlined style to feature discrete front pockets

The new APOLLO waterproof jacket that headlines the Galvin Green 2020 Part One collection is the first model made in GORE-TEX Paclite® Technology fabric to incorporate front pockets – making it even more versatile for serious golfers to wear both on and off the course.

The creation of lighter stretch fabrics has made it easier for Galvin Green to design a jacket that ticks the boxes for the golfer keen to avoid any restrictions when wearing a 100% waterproof top. The latest lightweight fabric stretches in different directions during the swing, so you don’t notice the two discrete pockets, although they’re there when needed.

The APOLLO jacket has taken two years to develop – six months longer than the usual progression of garments from drawing board to delivery – as various designs were tested to determine the one that ensured the addition of pockets wouldn’t interfere with the player’s swing. It weighs just 300g, with the extra pockets adding only 25g to its overall weight.

Easy to pack into the golf bag, the APOLLO jacket is extremely breathable and has a super-soft hand feel. Shaped sleeves provide easy movement and cuffs feature partial elastic and a tab with a touch and close Velcro fastener. Adjustable chest width tabs and an elasticated drawstring at the hem deliver a comfortable fit.

Sales of the waterproof Shell Layer range from Galvin Green are now headed by jackets made in GORE-TEX Paclite® Technology fabric, including the increasingly popular half-zip versions. They each feature fabric sourced from certified Bluesign® suppliers who meet global sustainability standards. The APOLLO jacket in GORE-TEX Paclite® stretch fabric comes in six stunning colourway choices – four sporty 4-colour combos and two solid colour options – in sizes S-3XL at a RRP of £290/€340/$450.
