Nike launches lightweight football training jackets

Jan '15
The American sportswear giant Nike has unveiled a new line of lightweight football training jackets to facilitate free upper body movement of athletes while training.

The jacket has been designed based on opinions collected from the players and key insights sourced from the company’s golfgear design team, which has recently designed a jacket that does not restrict a golf swing.

“We met with hundreds of footballers around the world and their preferences were clear: lightweight and designed for movement,” said Peter Hoppins, Nike Global Football design director.

“Players were wearing oversized jackets so they wouldn’t feel restricted, or forgoing a jacket altogether because they didn’t like the added weight and bulky look,” he adds while explaining the major inspiration behind the new design.

Made using stretch engineered mesh through the back, shoulders and upper arms, the Nike Revolution Jacket’s sleeves are constructed to move independently of the jacket chassis, providing full range of motion.

Replete with welded pockets and zip covers to prevent zippers from flapping, the piece features a breathable and comfortable jacquard mesh lining inside.

“The way the Revolution Jacket moves with the body enabled us to provide a more tailored fit for the modern look of football,” adds Hoppins.

Founded in 1964, based near Beaverton, Oregon, Nike specializes in the designing, marketing and distributing of a wide variety of athletic footwear, apparels, equipment and accessories meant for an expansive range of sports and fitness activities. (PB)
