The Nike Storm Fly Women's Running Jacket is as weather-defiant as the runners it was designed for. This lightweight layer delivers the perfect blend of breathability and protection for moderate weather conditions. The lightweight, breathable performance fabric helps keep the rain and wind out. The taped seams help keep water out and warmth in, whilst the covered vents encourage ventilation without letting in cold and wind.
The Storm Fly Jacket features strategic design details like taped seams and covered vents on the sides and back to help keep out wind and cold while allowing sweat vapour to escape. A bonded storm flap over the zipper also helps block the elements, and a dropped hem with drawcord enhances coverage. This menâ€™s running jacket features a semi-fitted design that eliminates excess material, plus articulated sleeves for enhanced range of motion and reduced irritation. Itâ€™s also incredibly lightweight, at only 172 grams.
When superstar track and field coach Bill Bowerman met talented middle-distance runner Phil Knight, an unlikely partnership was formed.
Bowerman was looking for lighter, more durable running shoes for his Oregon University Runners, and Knight was searching for a way to make a living without having to give up athletics all together. The two put their heads together and came up with a shoe that featured outsoles modelled on a waffle iron – unconventional, but somehow it worked.
Bowerman and Knight named their new venture Nike, after the Greek goddess of victory, and began selling their shoes from out the boot of a car. From these humble beginnings, the company has grown into a sports industry market leader, and its distinctive ‘swoosh’ logo is arguably the most recognisable brand logo on the planet.
Despite this success, Nike’s mission statement remains the unchanged: To bring inspiration and innovation to every athlete in the world. Because if you have a body, you’re an athlete.
