[REVIEW] NIKE HYPERADAPT STORM-FIT RAIN SUIT

Recommended Posts

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.
 
 
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:
 
Or real storms:
 
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.

Great review! I have never tried any of the Hyperadapt stuff, but it seems really nice.

It's mostly great. The rain suit is the first thing I'm disappointed with to be honest.

      So, another one of my quick reviews.
      The weather in Europe in Spring is usually quite funny. With it being 27 in the sun, to 11 in the shade, with a shower in between.
       
      Then there is my favourite clothing brand - Galvin Green. Their SpringSummer '18 collection is a hit with me, love the waterproofs and interface-1 jackets.
       
      "THE JACKET TO WEAR 95 OUT OF 100 ROUNDS" is a bold statement. Considering I clock in 250 rounds a year - it's a tall order.
       

       
      It's a good looking jacket. I put it in my bag weeks ago but it was either cold enough to wear an Insula + Larry Interface-1. Or if it was raining I'd just put waterproofs on.
       
      Now that the weather got a lil better and in the low-mid teens I've put that jacket on. It's so thin that I had little trust in it before, but it's pretty warm. 
      It also stretches like a pair of leggings :-D And has a pocket - a feature which most of the 2017 GalvinGreen jackets lacked.
       
      So then it started raining. And I was about to take my waterproofs out, but didn't. And the water resistance is actually pretty good. 
      It was heavy rain, but short. I havent tested the jacket out in the little raindrops that just make the air feel super damp. But I will for sure.
       
      It's a great addition to any wardrobe. Will continue testing it over the next couple of months and share my experiences :-)
       
      Let's be honest here. If I was more of a 'fair weather golfer' it could be close to the truth. But I'm not. And 95 out of 100 rounds for me would mean that it would have to be some jacket made out of Unicorn hair and rainbows. But it's still a jacket I'll get a ton of use, especially with the changing weather in Europe!!
