It’s getting cold here and I’m fully prepared and stylish in my new Galvin Green Dash Insula Pullover jacket.

Galvin Green makes some of the most amazing golf apparel and outerwear on the planet. It’s really several steps above just about anything else out there.

Dash Insula Pullover Overview

The 1/4 zip Dash Insula pullover features a warming layer which helps keep the player (me) warm, which keeps me loose and especially helps prevent muscle strains and injury.  The primary insulation/warming of the Dash is provided by Galvin Green’s INSULA material.

The shoulders and elbows have a thicker padded area which provides more warming effect on crucial, exposed areas.  “Body-mapping” technology was used to determine the areas to pad, and what areas need more optimized breathability to prevent moisture buildup.

The dash is easy to wash and care for, made from 90% Polyester, 10% Elastane.

One very interesting design feature and technology is the front pocket.  It’s good for a cell phone, or smaller, thin item.  The pocket is actually “welded” to the body of the garment.

On The Course

The comfort and fit of the Dash Insula Pullover is perfect.  Not too baggy and not too tight.  Somehow the shaping of the garment can give me a more chiseled look, which I’m happy about.

During the golf swing there is no binding, pulling or stiff areas. The pullover flows with my swing, which isn’t easy to do. It has to bend in multiple bizarre and odd directions!

The performance of the jacket is tremendous. The warmth it provides helps keep me loose and with a bad back which stiffens easily in the cold, that’s a very important quality.

On days where the weather is a wee bit worse or more wet, I’ll use the Dash as a middle layer with another outer layer on top of it.

Final Thoughts

Galvin Green products are of the highest quality and most innovative design in the golf apparel world. Their performance is unsurpassed.  The Dash Insula Pullover enhances the already tremendous Galvin Green lineup as a go-to outerwear piece, or as a middle layer.  If used as a middle layer, it matches up perfectly with the Galvin Green Bart Windstopper Jacket as the outer layer.  Pricing for the Dash Insula is commensurate with it’s quality and performance, about $250 on the street.
