Sustainably Sourced Hardshell Jackets

This Outdoor Jacket Uses Lightweight Recycled Polyester

— June 6, 2021 — Fashion
A hardshell jacket is one of the most challenging pieces of apparel to get right due to the need to combine rugged utility and comfortable fit whilst accommodating the growing desire for impeccable style in the great outdoors, but Nike has managed to achieve just this with the ACG 'Misery Ridge' jacket.

Taking its name from the gobsmackingly gorgeous but undeniably intimidating Misery Ridge trail of Oregon, the Nike ACG 'Misery Ridge' is a hardshell jacket that somehow manages to be perfectly waterproof and reliably breathable thanks to the use of Gore-Tex material, whilst still being durable enough to handle treacherous conditions, all in a package that feels neither overbearing nor gimmicky in its features. Customizable comfort in a range of weather conditions is made possible with features such as lengthy underarm zippers that allow you to dump excess heat without having to take the jacket off.

What's more, in keeping with the Earth-respecting ideals of the ACG line, this jacket also pays homage to the planet by making use of 100 percent recycled polyester in the face and back of the jacket. Whereas many pieces of outdoor gear feature little snippets of sustainable fabric, the 'Misery Ridge' places its eco-friendly credentials front and center, building the jacket around sustainability rather than relegating it to a sideshow.

One of a trio of highly versatile pieces of apparel that form the Nike ACG spring 2021 collection, the 'Misery Ridge' jacket is the consummate hardshell jacket for lovers of the great outdoors who value comfort, performance and sustainability.
