In my opinion Nike is revolutionizing golf apparel. Dri-Fit, Body Mapping and Thermal Gear are only a few of the technologies that Nike has come up with to help us golfers be more comfortable out on the course. Well they're not done yet. Some of Nike's new golf products are going to be extremely helpful to golfers everywhere. Here are the two newest products that the Nike labs have cooked up. Nike G-Flex Golf Belts - If you're big on comfort when you play golf this is a great accessory for you to have. I hate when I get done with a round of golf and my hips are raw from a belt rubbing on them every time I swing. I recently bought a G-Flex belt to see what the hype was about and I love it because it stretches with every movement throughout my swing so I don't feel restricted by it, plus it looks great. The G-Flex Belts also come in several different colors and textures to fit your preference. I'm telling you this belt is one of my favorite golf accessories, I won't play another round without it and you shouldn't either. It may not sound like much but to me, a golfer who likes to be comfortable, this is one of the best accessories on the market. Nike Performance Tech Pants - I haven't actually tried these while playing golf because I usually wear shorts but the concept is very interesting. The Nike Performance Tech Pants use Nike's patented Sphere Dry Technology which uses three dimensional fabric construction to help you stay dry and prevent your pants from clinging to your leg. I have a pair sitting next to me and from what I can tell these pants will definitely keep you cool on those scorching hot days in the summer. They are made up of a lightweight polyester material that still gives it the appearance of a traditional golf pant. They also have tiny ventilation holes on the back of your knees that help allow the pants to be very breathable. If you have to wear pants for a tournament, or just prefer wearing long pants while you play the Performance Tech Pants are the way to go. Nike Macro React Golf Shirts - This might be the coolest apparel that Nike has ever come out with. These new golf shirts are extremely lightweight and comfortable but their main feature consists of several vents on the back of the shirt that open up when you sweat. I'm not kidding, somehow the Nike Macro React technology senses when you sweat which causes the tiny vents to open up and let your sweat evaporate. When you stop sweating the vents close back up again. This is really amazing stuff and is brand new so I'm sure the word will spread fast. I must say, I'm impressed. Nike continues to think of things that others don't which is what makes them such a great company. What’s next, a hat that fixes a slice? Whatever its going to be I'm sure that it will be a useful piece of equipment for us die hard golfers. Keep it coming Nike.
