It's a shirt; no, it's a sweater; no, it's a jacket.
Truth is, it's all of them.
The new Nike Innovation Cover-Up ($120) wears like a sweater and functions like a weather-resistant jacket but is light enough to feel like a shirt. The rib sleeves are something I especially like, and the nylon and spandex fabric not only helps protect you from the elements, they create a trim fit that allows for more flexibility and range of motion when combined with the practicality of the water-resistant body. (Not to mention, it will make you look better.)
Staying warm and dry in one piece is the new trend; we've seen some similar jackets in the industry but this is taking it to the next level, and I would be surprised if more designers don't follow suit.
