Compromise, when it comes to your golf game, is a slippery slope. Saving a few bucks on balls could cost you some feel on the greens and potentially some strokes on your scorecard. 

The same can be said for your apparel. If you aren't properly prepared for weather (rain, cold, wind, etc.) on the golf course, there's a good chance you're game is going to suffer. So why not wear clothing from a company who boasts the tagline, "We never compromise!" That company is Galvin Green.

They may not have the same name recognition (yet) that some other titans in the industry get, but Galvin Green has some seriously impressive outerwear. And after dominating the rainwear sector in the United Kingdom for years, they are setting their sights on the U.S. with a new men's and women's colection for 2014.

The secret, like most apparel and equipment in the golf industry these days, lies in the innovation. The multi-layer concept that Galvin Green has gone to protects you from the skin outward, with each layer providing the very best technology has to offer.

The Dry Comfort-Base Layer uses Skintight Compression Technology to stimulate blood flow and oxygen to the muscles, while staying extremely breathable and transporting moisture away from the body. The Thermal Regulation-Warm and Cool Layers feature their Ventil8 and Insula Technology to keep your body at the temperature that helps you perform best, no matter the weather. And the Outer Protection-Shell Layer (men's pictured above, women's pictured below) utilizes Gore-Tex Paclite Technology to keep you completely waterproof, while still capable of releasing excess heat and moisture from layers underneath.

The attention to detail is astounding. Galvin Green has listened to consumers throughout the years and added things such as pockets on the back instead of the front, so you don't have a baggy pouch getting in the way of your hands and velcro tabs for wrist, chest and collar width adjustment among other things. 

It is actually hard to do justice to the new line in a simple blog. Galvin Green offers top-of-the-line protection from head to toe with almost 300 different jackets, trousers, pullovers, sweaters, body warmers, shirts, slacks, shorts, hats, caps, gloves and socks. And they come in just about any size and color combination you can think of.

In golf, much like life, you get what you pay for. So while the higher prices may come as a shock to some at first, when you slip on any layer of Galvin Green, you will know you are making a solid investment in your golf game.
