It’s no secret that fall is a great time to play golf – it’s not too hot, not too cold, but just right. Having the right lightweight layering piece is essential to enjoying the season in comfort. Here are seven standouts that can multi-task from the course to the street and everywhere in between.

Galvin Green Aideen Jacket

Start with the fact this mesh-lined, GORE-TEX fabric jacket comes in six color choices – dusty blue, pacific blue, black, jade, wineberry and wild orchid. Our favorite attribute of the Aideen, in addition to the color choices, is that you can combine it with several other pieces in the Galvin Green women’s collection.

Features:
Waterproof
Two-way front zipper
Breathable
Waist tabs and drawstring adjusters for a better fit
Extended cuffs that divert water
Two front pockets and one inside

Super soft hand feel
