Galway Bay releases new 2023 rainwear collection

Four early-release pieces available for pre-orders this fall

NOVI, MIGalway Bay, one of the leading rainwear brands in the golf industry, announces the release of its new 2023 Rainwear Collection. Galway Bay’s award-winning custom rainwear, known for its proprietary lightweight waterproof technology that keeps golfers stylish and dry, delivers variety with a new reversible jacket, a rain jacket, quarter zip pullover, and tailored rain pants.


Galway Bay’s award-winning outerwear brings a sophisticated aesthetic to its 2023 collection, highlighted by the reversible All-Weather Long-Sleeve Reversible Jacket. The jacket features the proprietary Hydro-Flex 32 fabric – the most breathable, waterproof technology in the industry. HydroFlex-32 keeps players dry and is lightweight for freedom of movement maintaining the integrity of the golf swing. The blend of performance and lifestyle, make it a perfect choice on or off the course. Choose one side which is fully waterproof or wear the reverse side featuring a sophisticated tartan look while protecting you from windy or wet conditions.

Also employing Hydro-Flex 32 fabric is the new Long Sleeve Golf Rain Jacket. Galway Bay works with golfers to determine what they don’t like about all-weather gear – and fix it. Most golf rain jackets have a high collar to keep rain from going down your back, but in the front, when fully zipped, the collar pokes your chin. Galway Bay’s new jackets have a high collar in the back but tapers down to a rounded front. It’s a small adjustment that elevates the golfing experience.

Both jackets are available in classic yet fashion-forward hues of slate blue and black with the reversible jacket transitioning to a handsome tartan grey-toned pattern. Fabric combinations breathe to release excess body heat and sweat, with a double layer providing warmth. The soft, quiet fabric has waterproof sealed seams on one side.

The fashionable all-weather jackets are now more lightweight and include more stretch with the same level of waterproofness and breathability. In fact, with a waterproof and breathability rating of 15,000, the Galway Bay Long Sleeve Rain Jacket provides an unparalleled performance fit while offering ergonomic construction to ensure freedom while moving.

The new Quarter Zip Pullover is comfortable, stylish and keeps you warm on those cooler days. The soft lightweight fabric, 80 percent cotton 20 percent polyester, has been designed to move with the golf swing. This new pullover is ideal for wearing over a golf shirt, and/or with the Galway Bay rain jackets when it is both cool and raining. This piece is the perfect fit to keep in the golf bag or closet to wear to work and features a Locker loop on the inside collar. An elasticized waistband, and cuffs ensure wonderful comfort and grip while golfing or enjoying a night out.

Galway Bay's All-Weather Pants never need to be worn over another pair of pants. They are designed to fit each individual player with waist and inseam measurements. The new pants are constructed with Hydro-Flex 32 fabric, a breathable stretch fabric that’s waterproof and windproof. These unlined pants look and feel exactly like traditional golf pants but are fully waterproof and designed to optimize comfort, fit, and style like no other rain pant ever has.

The 2023 pants collection includes options in black and slate. The waterproof and windproof pants are quiet, light, and are available in standard and tailored fit - with a more modern-cut tapered leg - options. The pants have deep pockets in both the front and back to ensure dry storage of personal items, gloves, or scorecards. The All-Weather Pant is now more lightweight and includes more stretch with the same level of waterproofness and breathability (15k/15k).

Returning by popular demand, and what truly sets Galway Bay apart in the outwear industry is the design of its All-Weather Lined Pants. The inner liner is constructed of a high-end, temperature-regulating wool fabric that ensures comfort in temperatures down to 30 degrees Fahrenheit. The lined pants are in a tailored cut, optimizing comfort, fit and style like no other rain pant ever has.

Galway Bay’s bi-component technology (Hydro-Flex 32) is a proprietary, three-layer 100 percent waterproof fabric that is constructed with a hydrophilic interior to pull moisture away from the skin and transfer it to the outer layer. The exterior surface area disperses and releases moisture for more efficient dry times. It regulates temperature in both hot and cold conditions. In addition, the fabric is more breathable and stretchable than ever ensuring the ultimate comfort and fit providing true performance.

All Galway Bay fabrics are designed to breathe easy, releasing excess body heat and reducing sweat so golfers can swing and move freely.
