(Photo courtesy of Nike) If you've ever wished you could combine the comfort and flexibility of a sweater with the waterproof protection of a rain jacket, guess what: your dream has finally become reality. This week, Nike Golf announced the release of their newest product, the Hyperadapt Storm-FIT jacket, specifically developed to provide comfort, mobility and protection when battling bad weather on the course.
(Speaking of weather, the Hyperadapt has already proven itself overseas. Paul Casey donned the jacket at the Irish Open, where he snagged his first professional win since 2011.) Thousands of hours were spent researching, designing and testing the garment to create the ideal sweater-jacket. Top features include no-sew technology on the inner layer to minimize chafing, a 4-way stretch system in the shoulders and an "impenetrable" waterproof (yet breathable) seam-sealed outer layer.
Available immediately at nikegolf.com, the Half Zip model retails for $240 in three color options (Black, Cool Grey, Game Royal) while the Full Zip retails for $280 in four color options (Black; Cool Grey; Game Royal; Armory Slate).
