So, it's cold and wet here in England so I thought I may use this time to write up another review. This time of something that may be useful in this kind of weather - Nike Hyperadapt Waterproofs. https://www.instagram.com/p/BdSmC0HhEPt After doing some research online, it had good reviews and at half price of goretex alternatives I thought I'll give it a go. It's made of the Nike's own Storm-Fit material, which promises to be water resistant, and breathable. I've played it in some insane conditions like: https://www.instagram.com/p/BW-AygWBBVy/ Or real storms: https://www.instagram.com/p/BU4kAW3h9oy And the bottom line is - it did keep me dry. Well, kind of. The quality is pretty good. All nike Hyperadapt stuff is good quality to be honest. Rory wears it after all. The stretchable shoulders in Hyperadapt stuff is amazing. Love it, I'm surprised no one else does something like it. Anyway - down to the good, bad and ugly. * It looks good. * It's very easy to put on quickly. * Definitely very waterproof, even in the worse conditions imaginable. * Comparing to other waterproofs it's pretty quiet. * Comfortable to swing in, doesn't restrict movement. I have 1 issue with it, and it's breathability. I do sweat on the best of days, and in this I felt like like Ryan Seacrest watching Brokeback Mountain. Sweaty. Wet. So as much as it kept the water coming from the outside - it did make me wet and hot on the inside :-( And that for me is a dealbreaker :-( Maybe now that the temperatures are close to 0 it would be better. As I have replaced them already, I will be giving the whole suit away. So stay tuned.
Nike Hyperadapt Wind Jacket In 2013, Nike Golf introduced the Hyperadapt Storm-Fit Jacket. They set out to terminate the oversized rain gear that can get in the way of the golf swing. Nike accomplished this by incorporating four-way stretch technology. The idea is that the outwear would fit like a sweater. That is, a close to the body fit without restriction. Recently, Nike introduced the Hyperadapt wind jacket as a compliment to the Hyperadapt line. The wind jacket incorporates the same four-way stretch technology that as in the Storm-Fit jacket. A â€œVâ€ shaped panel in the back of the jacket assists in mobility and ventilation. However, they went a little cosmic on this design. It's translucent! Naturally, when I first picked this up, I wondered, is there a need for a shirt under this? â€œWith the Hyperadapt Wind jacket there's no need to â€˜size up' â€“ it's designed to fit and move with your body,â€ says Merritt Richardson, Nike Golf VP of Global Golf Apparel. â€œThe 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.â€ Translucence was by design in the Hyperadapt wind jacket. One of the members of the apparel design team saw a vehicle parked on Nike's Breverton, Oregon, campus. The vehicle had a translucent hood exposing the vehicle's engine. In addition to the performance features of the jacket, it's sustainable as well. Nike used recycled coffee grounds incorporated into the windproof coating on the outer shell. This sustainability is supposed to help reduce odor from sweat and aids in UV protection. *Olympia Fields T-Shirt Underneath to show properities. When you put this on for the first time, you'll think, this fits too small, I need to size up. That's really not the case at all. It will fit more like a shirt than a jacket. But, when you take a golf swing in this, although more tailored than traditional outwear, there is no tightness or restrictive feeling whatsoever. So as a guy that normally wears a size large in outerwear, this fit true to size. I am not sure what to make of the translucent, see-through properties of this wind jacket. It certainly is cool and different, that's for sure. The Hyperadapt wind jacket retails for $100, and also comes in Black and Gray.
