Adidas Anorak PrimeBlue 1/4 Zip Pullover Review
Adidas is known for crossing boundaries when it comes to sporting equipment and apparel and for sharing technologies and styles between sports. The Primeblue Anorak is a great example of that. It has a multi-sport, contemporary look which looks as good off the course as it does on, and yet it is not just about the aesthetics because the performance takes it up another level.
The Anorak features a durable, water repellent coating and a storm hood for protection against the elements, while the hybrid knit and woven fabric construction delivers great comfort and versatility. In testing, we found it to be comfortable and breathable and we certainly felt it didn’t impede the golf swing. The regular fit and straight silhouette allow for excellent freedom of movement and easy swinging. Another feature to mention is the addition of the front welt pockets which is always a bonus on a golf jacket and the drawcord adjustable hem allowed us to tailor the jacket nicely.
Over the past few years adidas has led the way in golf in relation to designing and manufacturing clothes and shoes with sustainability at the forefront, but without compromising on performance. One such initiative which plays a key part in this Anorak’s design is PrimeBlue. Primeblue is a high-performance recycled material that’s made in part with Parley Ocean Plastic. These plastics were intercepted from beaches, coastal communities and shorelines, preventing them from polluting the ocean. Every day, the equivalent of 1440 dump trucks of plastic waste enter the Earth's oceans, so this is one small way to keep some waste out of the oceans and use it for purpose.
Overall, we think the adidas Primeblue Anorak will suit the younger golfer seeking a subtle, contemporary look and also a garment that will protect against the elements. The storm hood is a good addition and the use of stretch fabrics mean this is a dynamic and comfortable quarter-zip pullover. It will also suit those who want a garment that will not only perform on the course but is versatile enough for different sports and activities as well. It comes in sizes ranging from extra small, to 2XL and is one of the best golf wind jackets out there.
