The Celtic Football Club is one of the most recognizable football clubs in Scotland as well as throughout the world. Lately they have had some ups and downs in both European competitions as well as domestically. This season, they are looking to get back to the summit of Scottish soccer, however they are currently third, ten points behind Rangers. Now that the winter months are upon us, Celtic fans need to gear up in the latest Celtic cold gear to support their team as they try to make a push for top spot.

The new Nike Authentic N98 Celtic jacket stays with the classic colors of green and white that are associated with Celtic. The jacket is predominantly green but it is not just plain green. There are dark green and light green stripes that go horizontally across the jacket; however the stripes are made to not match each other. On the right side of the jacket there are thick dark green stripes that go until the zipper, and then the left side has smaller stripes to give the jacket an interesting pattern. This design is only on the main part of the jacket and does not extend to the sleeves which are just a plain green. The Celtic crest is stitched on the front left chest and the Nike swoosh is stitched on the right chest for an authentic and durable look. Each sleeve has a single thick white stripe that goes all the way down to give an accent to the green. Celtic is also heat pressed on the back of the jersey in white so everyone can see where your loyalty stands. Finally, the sleeve cuffs, top of the neck and waistline are all outlined in black to give another nice accent.

This jacket is made out of a cotton/polyester mix to give you great comfort combined with amazing durability. The jacket is a little thicker than some of the other jackets we have which will help keep you warmer during the winter months. The sleeve cuffs and waistline are made out of elastic to help keep wind out which will also help to keep you warm. When the collar is fully zipped up it is almost like a turtleneck. This will help provide as much protection from the elements as possible but the collar is not stiff so you will not feel constricted if it is fully zipped up.

If you are a fan of the Celtic jersey this is a must have. It is extremely comfortable but will also be durable enough to last a few seasons. The unique striped design is very nice. It gives a new look to the classic color scheme that goes very well. At $84.99, it is a little pricey but as I said above, it is extremely durable so you will have it for seasons to come.
