Today’s product review is on the AS UC Dri-FIT UV sweat hood by Nike x UNDERCOVER Gyakusou.
Gyakusou is in its 4th season this year. For those who’ve just heard of Gyakusou, this is a sub brand from UNDERCOVER’s Jun Takahashi along side Nike. The AS Dri-FIT UV sweat hood that will be reviewed today is one of many exquisite garments that is a part of his Nike x UNDERCOVER Gyakusou Spring 2012 collection.
Knowing his extreme passion for running, his designs caters to factors that runners look out for when running. The Nike website quotes ‘Jun Takahashi continues to pay keen attention to freedom of movement, comfort, and storage solutions, with concealed, carefully developed pockets that allow for essentials such as keys to be carried in silence. In certain tops and jackets, underarms are open for maximum ventilation.’ (Nike 2012)
This is the first time I’ve seen a piece of Gyakusou garment, and I have to say I was really impressed with the quality. Just like what Gyakusou is about. The sweat hood was extremely light and stretchy, it felt like it molded to my body, which reduced wind resistance. I also took this AS UC Dri-FIT UV sweat hood to the gym to see how it worked while doing weights. I was amazed at how versatile it was. I was able to do all sort of movements with the numerous exercises I did without any hassle.
Okay okay, beyond its features, this hood looks dope. It will compliment you in any occasion. Your gym gear, smart casual outfits and more. So don’t let running limit yourself to the use of this garment. The AS UC Dri-FIT UV sweathood is definitely my garment of choice if i need something light to match with a shirt, chino and a pair of dope kicks.
I absolutely love this sweat hood and I know it will rock your world if you tried one on today.
