Home Nike Golf has you covered!

With the golf world’s eyes on Scotland it is somewhat fitting that Nike Golf has introduced its new Hyperadapt Storm-FIT jacket. Combining flexibility and waterproof protection, the Hyperadapt Storm-FIT jacket is the only golf performance rain jacket of its kind, according to the Swoosh. With sweater-like stretch and an impenetrable outer layer, this jacket combines the benefits of both without sacrificing performance, it said.

Designers worked closely with Nike athletes, including Paul Casey, to test and tweak the Hyperadapt jacket technology. Casey returned to the winner’s circle with the new Nike jacket at the Irish Open where winds gusted up to 35 mph and heavy showers combined with sunshine. 

“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 unfavorable weather conditions,” expressed Merritt Richardson, Nike Golf Vice President of Global Golf Apparel. “We are always working to minimize distractions. From reducing sound to enhancing stretch, the Hyperadapt Storm-FIT jacket is the ultimate in protection and performance.”

With no-sew technology throughout the inner layer, designers minimized chaffing and added a new stretch component to the garment. A 4-way stretch system added to the shoulders and arms maximizes mobility and eliminates restrictions during the swing. This woven, stretch knit laminate combination provides a quiet garment during the swing and a sweater-like feel for comfort and protection at every angle, Nike said.

“Often, athletes will add a size to their rain jackets because they do not want to feel restricted by the fabric,” Richardson noted. “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.”

Along with promising a comfortable fit and enhanced mobility, the Hyperadapt jacket is breathable and seam sealed for 100% waterproof protection. Adjustable cuffs offer a custom fit for increased protection. The new Hyperadapt Nike Storm-FIT jacket is available immediately in half zip (Black; Cool Grey; Game Royal for $240) or full zip (Black; Cool Grey; Game Royal; Armory Slate for $280).
