I am not a huge fan of Winter Olympics, but take it that Team USA is preparing to top the chart, as always, or at least, Nike has already prepared the team to received medals in some really cool winter apparels. Dubbed Team USA Medal Stand Collection, these apparels will help the 2018 Winter Olympians representing the USA to beat stand up to the cold in the super cold, below freezing temperatures expected at this year Winter Olympics at PyeongChang, South Korea, where all medal ceremonies, with the exception of ice hockey, will be held in open-air arenas.
The collection includes a Summit Jacket System, Team USA Pants, NSW Gaiter Boots, and Medal Stand Glove. Official details as follows:
Summit Jacket System
The zip-in, zip-out system includes the Team USA Hypershield Summit Jacket, a lightweight GORE-TEX® waterproof shell that blocks wind and rain, and the Team USA Insulated Summit Jacket, a removable bomber jacket. Engineered knit hand warmers attached to the outer jacket’s sleeve offer extra warmth, while added Team USA flare adorns the inner phone pocket (an American flag) and the adjustable bottom toggle (a small eagle head) of the shell.
Team USA Pant
This is made with a DWR coat that provides protection from rain and snow. A waist cinch and ankle zip (that, when open, reads USA) make it easy for athletes to find their just-right fit and taper. Back pockets have snaps to secure small items.
NSW Gaiter Boot
Built to conquer the cold, the boots have a lace-free closure system that allows athletes to quickly dial their fit. The men’s boot (shown above) features a FlyEase-inspired entry system, while the women’s boot (at left) is taller and has added heat reflective material for more warmth.
Medal Stand Glove
Nike AeroShield technology combines a waterproof layer with ventilation zones to keep you dry and comfortable. Insulation throughout the fingers increases warmth, while the thumbs and forefingers are touch-screen compatible. A concealed zipper on the back of the hand makes it easy to get the gloves on and off.
The Nike’s Team USA Medal Stand Collection, which is available for both men and women, is available to patriotic fans via Nike online store, as well as select retailers. In addition to the collection, other Nike Team USA products, including apparel, footwear and accessories are also available for your taking. The collection has been available since January 15, or so we have read, but last checked, we find nothing of sort on Nike.com, well, at least not all of them.
