Nike changed inclement weather outerwear for golf last year with the Hyperadapt Storm-FIT jacket and now this same lightweight construction with 4-way stretch comes in a rain resistant wind jacket.
“With the Hyperadapt Wind jacket there’s no need to ‘size up’ – it’s designed to fit and move with your body,” says Merritt Richardson, Nike Golf VP of Global Golf Apparel. “The four-way stretch laminate through the back, shoulders and upper arms maximizes range of motion and eliminates distractions, and the lightweight outer shell provides superior protection from the elements for all day performance and comfort on the course.”
The Hyperadapt was inspired by a car with a see-through, engine-exposing hood one of the designers saw in a parking lot on Nike’s Beaverton, Ore., campus, the Nike Golf apparel team incorporated a half-zip, transparent outer shell that showcases the jacket’s technical details inside and out. A “V”-shaped panel underneath incorporates bonded mesh within the Hyperadapt construction for added breathability and mobility where golfers need it most.
Parts of the Hyperadapt are made from recycled coffee grounds so not only are they making use of recyclables but the resulting material helps reduce odor from perspiration and assists in UV protection. There are elastic cuffs to keep sleeves in place while swinging and an adjustable waist plus a back pocket for storage.
The Nike Hyperadapt Wind Jacket carryings a MSRP of $100 and comes in either Black/Black, Light Base Grey/Black or Venom Green/Black.WHAT'S YOUR REACTION?
