None of us prefer to slosh through a round of golf in inclement weather, but sometimes you just have to put on your big boy/girl pants and make the best of it. Speaking of, Galway Bay is one of our newest sponsors here at and you should check out their pants, jackets, and layering options so you can still play your best in less-than-ideal conditions.

Getting to Know Galway Bay
Galway Bay is based in Novi, Mich., and has been climbing its way to the top of the golf rainwear category for over a decade. If you’ve ever owned a golf rain suit and have been completely disappointed by how awkwardly the jacket and pants fit, know that Galway Bay aims to go in the exact opposite direction. In fact, it's the first company to offer raingear with both waist and inseam measurements so the pants will have a precise fit.

For me, the comfort factor goes above and beyond any other raingear I’ve worn. And, as a Midwest golfer my entire life, I feel like I have some authority on this topic. Raingear typically feels bulky, doesn’t move fluidly, and makes an awful “swishing” sound during your swing. Galway Bay products feel incredibly soft and breathe well even when the sun begins to poke through the clouds. The hallmark of Galway Bay materials is its bi-component technology, called Hydro-Flex 32, which is a three-layer 100 percent waterproof fabric that pulls moisture away from the skin and transfers it to the outer layer.

There’s a reason the company’s slogan is: “The Outerwear You Want to Wear.”

Product Highlights
Here are a few of the top offerings from Galway Bay that I would recommend checking out.

Hawthorn II Golf Rain Jacket: Not only my favorite jacket on the golf course, but I also find myself wearing it off of the course. Not only is it comfortable, but it’s also versatile. It’s an easy on/off as weather conditions change and the only thing it drips is quality. From the zippers to the waterproof seams, this jacket feels like a million bucks. There are also all-weather lined as well as short sleeve versions of this jacket.

Seagrove II Chino Rain Pants:You won’t believe you’re wearing rain pants. The Seagrove II Chinos feel like a comfortable pair of regular golf pants that fit like a glove because of the waist and inseam sizes. Much like Pete in our above video, I just throw a belt on with these pants and I’m good to go, rain or shine. Never will I ever go back to drawstring parachute pants disguised as rain pants.

A complete Galway Bay outfit to take on the elements

Layering Quarter Zip:In addition to a top and bottom base layer, Galway Bay also offers a quarter zip that easily slides underneath a jacket if need be. The cotton-polyester blend will keep you warm but still breathe should you start to sweat. I love the fitted cuffs on the wrist and the quality of the zipper because, after all, it’s about the details.
