Galvin Green C-Knit Technology – The Next Generation of Rainwear

by Maura Hutchinson



Galvin Green, the premier golf wear brand, has spent six years trying and testing what they say represents the next generation of rainwear. Introducing C-Knit Technology, used by the brand alongside Gore-Tex to create a range of waterproof three-layer stretch fabric jackets and trousers.

The Future of Performance

In their quest to produce superior rainwear that isn’t stiff, heavy or noisy Galvin Green relied on the Japanese-made C-Knit backer to be the perfect companion to their already proven Gore-Tex technology. Expertly merging fabrics to create waterproof pieces that easily “slide and glide” over any apparel worn underneath, the latest C-Knit range offers maximum freedom of movement throughout your golf swing whilst continuing to keep you completely dry.


Galvin Green’s Creative Director Mats Lundqvist explains, “We wanted something that you hardly notice wearing but still keeps you dry – a garment so light and so soft that it feels like playing in a shirt but is waterproof and durable.”

In keeping with Galvin Green’s tradition of never compromising the brand has continued to push the boundaries of design innovation to ensure their latest line addresses the issues most important to a golfer playing in the rain. To ensure exceptional levels of comfort and adjustability the C-Knit jackets feature a rubberised collar specifically engineered to offer improved fit while maximising protection from the wind and rain. Rubberised cuffs have also been employed featuring a zip closure to add extra customisation as well as simple access.  

Tried and Tested in High Pressure Environments

While the brand’s C-Knit technology is being rolled out to the public in 2017, the impressive fabric already had its professional debut back in September 2016 at the Ryder Cup at Hazeltine. See what makes this latest innovation from Galvin Green so special.

Beyond keeping the European squad dry Galvin Green decided to give their new gear another trial. This time in the challenging elements of Nofoten, Norway located north of the Arctic Circle.
