Nike USA Flip It Reversible Jacket – Red and Blue Review
The US national team is looking to rebuild their style under the leadership of Jürgen Klinsmann. The beginning of his reign as national team coach has not gone too smoothly with the team struggling for goals. However, they are looking to fix all the kinks in time for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. Even though the World Cup is still a while away, you can begin supporting the national team during their world cup qualifying campaign. A perfect thing to wear during the winter months is the new United States Flip-It jacket. It combines style and comfort perfectly to give you an exceptional end product.
The flip-it soccer jackets provide the best of both worlds for fans. The one side of the jacket is all navy with red inside the hood to give a nice accent color. It has a checkered pattern stitched into it for a nice style. The United States crest is heat pressed in red on the left chest of the jacket. Another nice feature is the zip up pockets so you can keep your valuables protected from the weather. However, if you are not feeling blue on a particular day you can flip the jacket to its reverse side that is all red. This side has blue in the hood for a nice accent color. This side of the jacket does not have the checkered pattern and is completely smooth. It also has a vertical zipper by your chest as well as pockets that button up. The United States crest is heat pressed on the left chest of the jacket in blue.
Feel The feel of this jacket is extremely comfortable. It has synthetic insulation that helps to retain heat even when it is wet. This helps to keep you extremely warm but will not weigh you down in the process. This jacket is extremely light which helps the comfort. Both the sleeve cuffs and waist have elastic to give a snug fit as well as keeping wind, rain and snow out.
If you are looking for an extremely light, comfortable and good looking jacket, this is your answer. It gives you both the main colors of the United States national team so you can switch up looks and not keep the same color over and over. It is very insulated to keep you warm and protects you from the bad weather you have to deal with during the winter months. At $119.99 it is a little highly priced but it will last you a long time and the quality is top notch. You will be very happy with this jacket and will be comfortable and cozy even in the coldest conditions.
