Three reasons to love the Nike ACG Spring 2019 Collection

In 1989, Nike launched ACG (All Conditions Gear) as a vehicle for outdoor solutions. Thirty years later, the gear is still built to take on sun, rain and everything in between. Here are three ways the latest Spring 2019 drop is celebrating ACG’s legacy in aesthetic and technical innovation.

1. Retro prints are back. Created by Nike‘s Art Department, which was founded in 1983, the prints used for the ’89 debut of ACG and then through the ’90s manipulated petroglyph art, rock formations, plants and more. Viscerally memorable and etched in Nike lore, these patterns cemented the brand’s status as an apparel design juggernaut.      

The Men’s ACG GORE-TEX® Jacket, designed with a slightly oversize fit, incorporates interior straps so it can be easily carried.

2. Women’s styles are being introduced. Base layers and pants, fitted specifically for ease of movement, ensure that the wholly trinity of apparel — function, fit and feel — is achieved.

Storm guards and hidden pockets keep stuff warm and dry in the Women’s ACG Anorak.

3. A three-step layer system returns. Moisture wicking Dri-FIT wool base layers, fleece insulation and GORE-TEX® fabrics combine to provide protection against most conditions one might face on the street or trail.

A playful throwback print from the Nike ACG archives balances retro vibes with ultra-soft insulation in the Men’s ACG Jacket.

The Spring 2019 Nike ACG apparel collection releases January 24 on Nike and at select retailers in Asia and North America, and on February 21 in Europe at:
