Nike have found a new way to combat unpredictable weather with an intuitive new garment called the Transform Jacket.
Created by NikeLab, the garment is essentially a multi-purpose outerwear that features a convertible design to give it the best of both worlds. The water-resistant outer shell can be hidden in a pouch on the back to reveal a lightweight Nike Tech Fleece liner. With the outer shell packed in, the Transform Jacket still maintains its streamlined aesthetics as both layers are optimised to do their job with as little real estate as possible.
When not required, the shell can be worn as a backpack.
Kurt Parker, Nike Vice President of Apparel Design says that, “Both jackets can be worn individually and function on their own. But the beauty lies in how the two layers work together to create a highly functional performance solution.”
The dual layered jacket works by removing the outer shell and pulling on the front straps to initiate the transformation. When it’s time to go back on, the wearer simply removes it from the pouch and pulls down on the back strap. Watch the video below to see how it works in more detail.
The structure itself is lined with Nike’s Flywire technology as used in its footwear. The jacket is now available at NikeLab.
