Nike ACG is set to release it’s Spring/Summer 2017 range tomorrow. I previously covered the 07 CMTR sneaker on this site, but now we get a better look at what else is in the range. Particularly of note is the packable ACG Poncho that comes in ripstop. Equipped with a hidden inner pocket, the is one of the more eye-catching items to drop. Another key piece are the ACG cargos. While past seasons saw cargos released, these are notable for their 6 pocket set-up and breathable side vents. To round out the collection there’s also a series of fleece items as well as a rain resistant button-down.
The collection releases this Thursday over at END.
I have been posting items from some of the key techwear brands for some time now. Pieces by the likes of ACRONYM, Stone Island and Y-3 have been some of my recent grails. I had the chance to write a little introductory guide to techwear for Grailed. In it I cover some of the key basics – softshells vs hardshells, a rundown of waterproof materials, and the top brands to look out for. Check out the feature over at Grailed.

Nikelab quietly dropped new items from the ACG collection today. The product is in-line with the new design ethos and direction set by Matt Parker and Errolson Hugh (leader designer at Acronym). The ACG tech shirting features a water resistant nylon material with details like discrete zippered pockets and articulated sleeves . The pants and crewneck play off the Nike tech fleece fabric and are slick updates to the standard tech fleece designs. Best of all, the price point on the gear seems to have gone down a good 20-25% from the debut collection making the ACG line a more attractive value to techwear enthusiasts.
