Galvin Green Waterproof Trousers Buyers Guide

By on September 18, 2019

Galvin Green make some of the finest waterproof trousers in the Golf Industry. Many top professionals wear Galvin Green waterproof trousers and they are one of the most important garments you’ll need on a rainy golf course.

In this buyers guide by The Golf Shop we will help you choose which waterproof trousers would suit you the best from the current Galvin Green range and point out the features of each style. All of the trousers are fully waterproof and are guaranteed to keep you dry, however firstly we feel you should be aware of some of the technical terms and features to guide you in your choice of trouser.


What sets the Galvin Green apart from the competition is that they are one of only a few brands to use the Gore-Tex material. Gore-tex is fully waterproof however it’s great attribute is that it is also breathable and it keeps the water out while also letting out perspiration at the same time. The standard Gore-tex is very durable and has a slightly thicker feel to it but it is soft and smooth which provides a comfortable garment to wear.

Gore-Tex Paclite

The Gore-Tex Paclite is also hard wearing and comfortable to wear but it is much lighter than the standard gore-tex. This seems to be preferred by the more professional player as you have a bit more freedom of movement when playing Golf. From our experience the Paclite is not quite as warm to wear as the standard gore-tex as they often have a thicker layer to keep you warmer.

Stretch Material

The stretch material is still a gore-tex garment but the clever guys at Galvin Green have managed to develop a four way stretch which is really comfortable to wear. Especially when playing golf it allows you to swing freely.

All of the Galvin Green waterproof trousers will have a zip at the bottom of the trouser and they also all have an elasticated waist for a fast and easy way to wear.
