When we think of NikeLab ACG we usually think of cold weather so Johanna Schneider and Errolson Hugh took this thought into consideration during the creation of this seasonal collection. When it came to Gore-Tex the team wanted to embrace a fresh perspective on it’s usefulness during summer. The material is both protective and breathable which is important when it comes to dressing during the warmer months.

The NikeLab ACG Gore Tex jacket is the cornerstone of the collection. Available in both men’s and women’s sizes, the three-layer outer garment includes detachable sleeves from the standard ¾ sleeve length for added protection. Multiple pockets offer plenty of room to store your personal valuables. Interior carry straps grant the wearer the ability to shed the layer’s weight while keeping the layer in arm’s reach.

The new cargo pant pulls from this same versatile philosophy, with articulated legs for freedom of movement, expandable cargo pockets with zipper and snap closures, and a functional zippered fly. But wearers will notice another detail: there is only one pant silhouette for both men and women in this collection.

“The idea was that you might just need one full pant in the summer season,” says Schneider. The reasoning goes back to expectations of what is seasonally appropriate. A renewed focus was on the like-designed cargo shorts for men’s and women’s with an added knit component – the first time that NikeLab ACG has incorporated seamless knitting, also used in the line’s arm sleeves and leg sleeves. You’ll be able to shop the NikeLab ACG summer collection on May 17th.
