Galvin Green Diego Insula pullover reviewNovember 1, 2018 Warm layer
Ideal as a pullover all-year-round and works as a warming layer underneath a jacket for when it gets really cold
Our Galvin Green Diego Insula pullover review took place on the course at Bradley Park in Yorkshire.
Galvin Green Diego Insula pullover review – First impressions
As we know, Galvin Green are market leaders and are famous for their waterproofs.
But their commitment to helping golfers stay on the course through all weather conditions doesn’t end there.
The brand have spent a lot of time and have invested heavily in the technology to provide golfers with a range of layering options.
This Diego insula is perfect for those chilly morning rounds as a pullover.
Or if it’s really, really cold then it can be worn as a warming layer underneath a jacket.
We’ve got four colour options here with a yellow, blue, red and black/grey model.
There’s fairly subtle branding here but these are unmistakeable as Galvin Green items due to their colours and styling.
Galvin Green Diego Insula pullover review – The technology
The Diego is made using Insula fabric which combines breathability with thermal regulation.
It’s very clever technology which gives the garment a light, airy material structure.
The fabric has built-in air chambers which are warmed by the body heat and provide extremely effective and long-lasting thermal insulation.
There’s a single chest pocket which can be used for a scorecard.
Galvin like to design garments with pockets away from the waist as there is a tendency to fill them up which can then hamper your swing.
Galvin Green Diego Insula pullover review – The results
As soon as you put this pullover on you start to feel nice and toasty.
But it’s so light and stretchy it almost feels like an outer layer of skin.
I found this top was great to wear with a body-warmer like the Lawson as you can get the warmth around the chest but still have full freedom of movement in the arms.
Galvin Green Diego Insula pullover review – NCG verdict
The best thing about the Diego pullover is the fact it well get plenty of use all-year-round.
You can even wear it in the summer on a cold morning or breezy afternoon.
And then in the winter it can still be worn as just a pullover or underneath another jacket.
I’d even say that this would get a lot of wear away from the golf course at it looks stylish and fashionable.
You won’t stick out like a sore thumb at the pub for wearing golf gear.
