The jacket is designed to offer golfers comfort, mobility and protection against the elements. Concentrating on flexibility and waterproof protection, the Hyperadapt Storm-FIT jacket combines the benefits of a sweater and an outer waterproof layer into one jacket. It has sweater-like stretch along with an impenetrable outer layer that protects from rain and wind.
“Inspired by our athletes who demand the best in performance, our team set to work to create a jacket built to change the way golfers feel in unfavourable weather conditions,” expressed Merritt Richardson, Nike Golf vice president of global golf apparel.
“We are always working to minimise distractions. From reducing sound to enhancing stretch, the Hyperadapt Storm-FIT jacket is the ultimate in protection and performance.”
“Often, athletes will add a size to their rain jackets because they do not want to feel restricted by the fabric. 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.”
Designed for the harsh weather often found on the European Tour, it didn't take long for the Hyperadapt Storm-FIT jacket to have success. Nike's Paul Casey won the Irish Open in heavy showers and gusts up to 35mph, wearing the new Nike jacket.
The weather forecast for The Open at Muirfield next weeks looks good for now. Should the weather change, players and golf fans may well look to add the new Hyperadapt Storm-FIT jacket to battle the elements.
The jacket will be available in three colours, black, grey and blue, from today. It will cost £199.99 for a half-zip version and £210 for the full-zip.
