Nike Unveil Revolution Training Jacket

Nike unveil their lightest ever football training jacket, built for constant upper body motion.

Nike have created a "revolutionary new football training jacket", designed for lightweight and full range motion. The Nike Revolution Jacket provides only what the player needs and strips away everything else, including excess bulk and weight. As a result, it is the lightest football jacket Nike has ever made. 

“We sought to eliminate the compromise we were seeing on training grounds,” says 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. Regardless of a jacket’s technical attributes, we know players won’t wear it if they don’t like how it looks and fits. The way the Revolution Jacket moves with the body enabled us to provide a more tailored fit for the modern look of football.”

Some description

In analyzing how to bring greater mobility to the Nike Revolution Jacket, Nike Football’s design team applied some key insights from the their Nike Golf colleagues, who recently designed a jacket that would not restrict a golf swing. The football design team utilized a stretch engineered mesh through the back, shoulders and upper arms. The sleeves are constructed to move independently of the jacket chassis, providing full range of motion.

The inside features a jacquard mesh for breathability and comfort.  The area under the arm flows air directly into the jacket to help keep the player from overheating.  All of the technical elements of the jackets shine through the translucent shell, creating a unique aesthetic.

The Nike Football Revolution Jacket will be available beginning Jan. 15. from selected Nike stockists including Pro-Direct Soccer.
