2014 Nike Hyperadapt Wind Jacket - It's See Through!


Recommended Posts

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 “V” 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?




“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.”

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.

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.

That's nice to know...



Great write up. Very cool concept and I love Nike apparel but I will not be getting this item. I wish the black and gray versions weren't clear. That's just wrong.
