Why You Need To Update Your Hoodie NOW!

Above: Nike’s new Tech Cape Hoody, $120.



On my recent trip to Hamilton Island with Nike I spied one of the crew wearing an amazing hoodie that I’ve actually been dreaming about ever since. I kid you not! I live in hoodies so when I clapped eyes on this one I knew it was a game changer.

The great news is these cool new Nike Tech Fleece Hoodie’s have just arrived in New Zealand.  Although it’s a high tech garment I’m not sure I’d actually wear mine to workout. Think I’d rather wear it with my favourite leather-look sweat pants and high tops for a cool street-style look.

The new Tech Fleece hoodie comes in three different styles all with great detailing including side zip pockets, bound hems, and thumbholes at the cuffs. The cape also has an off-center zip that gives it an unconventional line that includes an exaggerated dropped back hem. Fashionable and flattering – we like that! There’s also Tech Fleece pants and a specially designed hoodie and pants for the boys too.

The only problem I see with these hoodies is trying to decide which one to choose. First world problems hey!

Take a look at a few of the famous faces already getting amongst this cool new gear in the video below.



Above: The Tech Fleece Hoodie, $110 features a funnel neck style that is anything but basic. Its soft French terry fabric provides comfort while the funnel neck can be worn as a hood or a cowl. Welt pockets in the body of the garment provide easily accessible storage and the ribbed cotton fabric provides a snug, personalised fit.



Above: Nike’s Tech Cape Hoodie, $120 features an ultra-modern and unique silhouette with an exaggerated dropped back hem and a zippered vent for a customised look.  The three-panel hood has an oversized opening for a non-restrictive feel.  It also features an asymmetrical full-front zipper and shaped wrist cuffs with elastic binding to provide a snug, ergonomic fit.
