The NikeLab ACG Poncho utilises technical fabrics and innovative design from Acronym’s Errolson Hugh.
Senior Nike apparel designer, Jarrett Reynolds, and Acronym’s Errolson Hugh, set out on a mission to create something special for their NikeLab ACG SU17 collection . With the summer period packed full of festivals and outdoors events it made perfect sense to re-invent a staple piece of the season. Over the last 30 years or so the classic military silhouette originally used in the jungles and rain forests of the world has become a festival staple. The ‘rain battling’ poncho has now been updated with technical fabrics and performance led function thanks to the ACG team.
The NikeLab ACG Poncho comes in a 3-layer ripstop fabric with taped seams, a hood and is a also fully packable. Thanks to the help of Errolson Hugh the silhouette has been tweaked for optimal performance and function. The pockets have been reversed to fit the inner of the garment allowing the hands to remain dry on the inside.
Alongside the ACG Poncho, the 10 piece collection features performance driven pieces made to fit the body in the most extreme positions. Allowing full body movements utilising performance led fabrics the collection screams innovation and most of all what NikeLab ACG is all about . Also included in the collection is the NikeLab ACG Cargo Pants and the NikeLab AC G PO Hoodie both made from a lightweight stretch fleece fabric. Headwear includes the NikeLab ACG cap and NikeLab ACG Bucket Hat.
