Galway Bay All-Weather Jacket

As one of the three lucky winners of the Golf WRX-Galway Bay Give Away I selected the Gray/Blue All-Weather Jacket.

Living and golfing in Upstate New York weather is a great test for any rain gear. This time of year is prime time for us golfers, mid to upper 70's and sun all this next week. So, consider this the start of an 'on-going review' that I'll update throughout the fall and winter, when this jacket will get the true test.



First impression:



Slick packaging and garment presentation says 'high-end product' right away. First-class design on the box and wrap.



I'm 6'2, 220 and wear XL in most golf jackets and polos. I got an XL and it fits nice - 'trailored' fit, not slim. The fit is "snug" - no bulk or extra room, which is nice in a golf jacket - nothing gets in the way when swinging. Very light and comfortable material. Sits right at the belt line. Sleeves fall right at the wrist, velcro allows for custom fit. You can tell this jacket was designed by a golfer. Waterproof seams and zippers...Go to their website to see all the features and benefits, they do a better job than me.

I really like the gray/blue color scheme (enough black rain gear!) can pair well with any color pants/shorts nicely.



This jacket has top-shelf written all over it so far - but the big test will be on a rainy, windy day on the course. Keep you posted...

    UPDATE:

    Rained all day so I was able to "field test" my Galway Bay jacket.

    I played a quick nine holes: Moderate showers, light breeze, 60's - the jacket did the job. Stayed dry, was comfortable, didn't get over-heated...passed the test.

    I really like the fit of the jacket. No bulk, allows for swing freedom. Even got a compliment from the pro (liked the colors).
