Team USA’s Olympic Medal Stand Uniform Is Not Just For Medalists

 

With two weeks to go until the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea, it's good to know that Team USA athletes who receive medals will be wearing official Nike podium gear that is both stylish and designed to be warm.

With all medal events except hockey taking place in open-air arenas with freezing temperatures expected, the podium outfits for both male and female Olympians are super-insulated. The Team Hypershield Summit Jacket is lightweight and includes, built-in knitted hand warmers attached to the sleeves. The lightweight coat also comes with a removable bomber jacket. The pants have a durable water repellent coating and back pockets for carrying small items.

The Nike NSW gaiter boots have a lace-free closure and the women’s boots are slightly higher on the ankle with a built-in heat reflective material. The gloves are layered with a waterproof material and the thumbs and forefingers are touch-screen compatible with a hidden zipper for easy removal.

The entire outfit features American flags, a small eagle head jacket toggle and ‘USA’ lettering.

The entire Team USA Medal Stand Collection is available through www.nike.com and at select retailers.
