Nike Golf’s new Innovation Woven Cover-up is designed to with the body while keeping golfers warm and dry.
“Golfers love wearing sweaters on the course. They’re soft and warm and easy to move in, unlike a lot of jackets,” said Merritt Richardson, vice president of global golf apparel.
“With the Innovation Woven Cover-up, there’s no need to choose one over the other or add layers. It’s the best of both worlds,” said Richardson.
Part of Nike Golf’s Stay Protected line, the Innovation Woven Cover-up features two technologies merged into one hybrid design.
The lightweight wind-and-water resistant Dri-FIT stretch woven body, the jacket, is breathable and protects against the elements.
The 3D knit sleeves, or sweater, keeps warmth in and amplifies movement through the arms and shoulders.
“We’ve done a lot of research around the thermal properties of 3D knit and increased articulation for a better fit,” said Richardson.
“The knit is fabricated to be higher in certain zones to trap heat and offer flexibility and dialed in around places like the elbow to reduce material and weight,” added Richardson.
The Nike Innovation Woven Cover-up features a bonded seam down the back to eliminate stitching and added distractions.
A traditional collar is designed to offer additional protection from chilly temperatures and wind.
