Winter is officially over down under but on days like today, you just know that it’s still creeping its way through the early days of Spring. And it’s on days like today that you will need something comforting, yet lightweight to pull out of your wardrobes to cover your bodies.
Enter Nike Sportswear’s new Tech Pack.
“Underscoring its commitment to innovation for life, Nike applies a performance approach to lifestyle design that paves the way for a modern interpretation of a classic sport fabric: fleece. Every detail of traditional sport silhouettes is reinvented to remove the bulk of fleece and create a lightweight and streamlined collection.
“Evolving the fit, feel, and function of Nike’s most iconic sportswear silhouettes, Nike Tech Fleece fabric offers the ultimate in lightweight warmth that responds to the natural motion of the wearer. Plush foam placed between layers of cotton jersey creates a tri-layer fabric that provides the ultimate in comfort and warmth when needed. It is lighter, warmer, more breathable than its predecessors, and looks as good as it performs.”
Below, I’ve chosen to feature my favourite pieces of the women’s range from the new Tech Pack but you can view the entire collection over at Nike.com.
The Tech Cape Hoody packs a lot of punch. At an affordable price, the three-panel hood has an oversized opening for a non-restrictive feel, and also offers a customised look with its ultra-modern design of a dropped back hem and zippered vent.
Possibly THE stand-out piece from the entire women’s collection for me is the Women’s Tech Fleece Windrunner. Available in both black and grey, the three-panel hoody features the new tech fleece technology to create superior warmth, and its kangaroo pockets extend right to the hem to provide easily accessible storage.
They may look like just another pair of black tracksuit pants to you, but the Tech Fleece Pants provide long-lasting warmth via their innovative three-layer construction. “The pants feature ribbed cotton fabric to provide a snug fit that holds shape, an elastic waistband for a personalised fit and zippers at the hem to ensure ease for on and off over shoes.”
The new Nike Sportswear Tech Pack is in stores now.
