I’ve had the pleasure of testing out some great polos from Galvin Green recently. Today’s feature is the Ventil8 (yes, I know) short sleeve golf polo.

Let’s take a look at some of the features of the Ventil8.

  • Breathability via special fabric which keeps the player dry and wicks moisture away from the body
  • Comfort comes from the fabric being very light and flexible
  • The fabric also helps dissipate excess heat from the player’s body
  • Anti-bacterial technology keeps the shirt fresh and helps prevent bad odors
  • Easy to care for via regular machine wash and hang-dry

Style

The Ventil8 is very simple, yet very classy, athletic, and stylish. The cut and trim lines of the polo make a non-physical specimen like me even look decent.

Performance

The polo looks athletic and allows for athletic movements and flexibility without binding, pulling, tightening, or restricting the body movement of the golfer.

Colors

The Ventil8 is available in seven colors.  Pictured here is midnight blue with white trim.

Sizing Advice

Galvin Green is based in Växjö, central Sweden. As such, the sizing tends to be what I call “euro” fit, which means “does not fit fat American.” I normally wear an extra-large but need to wear a double extra-large in Galvin Green’s shirts.

Entertaining Care Instructions

I’m mildly entertained by the care instructions:

“Machine wash warm, with similar colours. Do not use bleach or fabric softener. Do not tumble dry – hang to dry. Iron at low temperature 110°/230F. Do not dry clean. Do not iron on print. Keep away from fire.”

Keep away from fire?  Dang.  I was going to do some fire dancing and juggle flaming golf balls while wearing this polo.  Glad I read that part.

Conclusion

Galvin Green’s Ventil8 is a very stylish and super-high performance golf polo.  Even in the hottest parts of summer with temperatures in excess of 105F here, the polo performed tremendously.  It kept me dry and allowed me free movement to swing away.

Make sure you buy one extra size up if you like a more loose fit.
