Review – Nike Hyperadapt Storm-Fit Jacket
Nike has taken the innovative technology used in their golf clubs and implemented it into their apparel line. With the growing popularity of their apparel collections in recent years, it is apparent that Nike is becoming a major player in the apparel game.
Nike’s Hyperadapt Storm-FIT jacket features increased mobility, comfort and protection in all weather conditions. The stretch material in the shoulders and arms enhances the mobility of the jacket and eliminates the tugging and pulling that traditional outerwear has. The unbeatable comfort of a no-sew inner layer is that similar to a sweater. The jacket is seam sealed for 100% waterproof protection while the individual adjustable cuff allows for customizable protection.
“Often, athletes will add a size to their rain jackets because they do not want to feel restricted by the fabric,” said Merritt Richardson, Nike Golf Vice President of Global Golf Apparel. “This leads to a distracting, oversized jacket that is not optimal for competitive play. The Hyperadapt jacket eliminates this issue by providing athletes the protection they need without sacrificing the performance benefits of a stretch pullover. We are always working to minimize distractions. From reducing sound to enhancing stretch, the Hyperadapt Storm-FIT jacket is the ultimate in protection and performance,” said Richardson.
This jacket will withstand even the most unpredictable elements. This outerwear piece has gone through rigorous testing by both tour players and designers to ensure the best product possible. Knowing that elements can change at any minute and not having to worry about the rain, puts you one step ahead of the game. The avid golfer will immediately love how this jacket blends it’s ultra-light and ultra-comfortable features with its advanced weather protection material.
