Nike Aeroloft jacket unveiled

Laser cut holes between panels on the Nike Aeroloft jacket help maintain the optimum body temperature out on the course

The new Nike Aeroloft Jacket nullifies the effect of adverse weather by keeping golfers warm and dry through its unique Aeroloft technology.

“Aeroloft technology allows us to produce excellent insulation with minimal weight,” explains Eric Schindler, Nike Global Apparel Product Director. “We utilized stretch knit fabrics in conjunction with the Aeroloft padding to maximize movement and thermoregulation.”

The Aeroloft Poly Filled Jacket features engineered laser-cut holes between panels of insulation. An inner knit sleeve and back adds warmth.

Developed by Nike designers, with help from the Nike Explore Team Sport Research Lab, Aeroloft allows the body to maintain its core temperature without overheating. Its unique blend of lightweight insulation and perforated ventilation is designed to retain just enough heat while allowing excess heat and moisture to escape, helping athletes remain in their optimal performance zone. The poly fill also helps keep athletes dry when rain showers the course.

Rory McIlroy is one Nike athlete who has already tested the Aeroloft Jacket. See a picture of him testing the jacket at the bottom of the page and watch our exclusive interview with him below about how he became the champion he is today.

 

The women’s jacket also utilizes a poly fill and features stretch knit construction on the side panels and underarm for maximum mobility.

The Nike Aeroloft Poly Filled Jacket comes in black, photo blue and midnight navy with an RRP of £120 and is available now at nike.com and select retailers.
