Nike presents the new Tech Fleece Collection, a reinvention of the brand's most iconic outerwear silhouettes. The collection includes reworked versions of the Windrunner, N98, AW77 and Crew sweatshirt, along a Tech Fleece Hoodie, Tech Fleece Cape and Tech Fleece Pants specially crafted for women.
The 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. The smooth jersey facing gives the garments a modern, streamlined look both inside and out, while the inner foam enhances the fleece’s functionality. It is lighter, warmer, more breathable than its predecessors, and looks as good as it performs.
To highlight the groundbreaking fabric, each style was stripped down to its essential elements and rebuilt from the inside out. Arms were articulated for enhanced mobility while restructuring helped slim the silhouettes and reduced overall topstitching and seaming. Additionally, traditional ribbed cuffs were replaced by black elastic micro binding for a snug, ergonomic fit and updated appearance that complements bold black zippers and a traditional grey palette.
