This same forward-looking concept of mutation and evolution also infuses the men's and women’sEngineered Sleeve Composite Jacket. Instead of using a single fabric to form the outerwear layer, the unlined jacket takes into account the multifaceted needs of the resolute runner and incorporates the multiple materials required to meet them. The body of the garment is constructed of a composite Storm-FIT that provides weather protection, whereas the sleeves and neck are formed from an engineered knit that allows for mobility and adapts to the arm in motion. A stand collar and sealed seams further combat the elements, while a key/coin pocket and laser-cut, concealed-zip hand pockets anticipate the runner’s on-the-go needs. Moreover, laser-perforated underarm ventilation facilitates cooling while a laser-cut Gyakusou logo placed vertically along the back acts as an exhaust system, expelling body heat.
Additional tops include the men’s Mesh Thermo Vest and 4-Way Stretch ½ Zip Hoody Top, which combines water-repellant jersey with practical details, including a chest media pocket, thumbholes and reflective Gyakusou logo on the hood. Meanwhile, both men’s and women's collections include anEmbossed Woven Hooded Jacket and Aeroloft 800 Vest.
Along with the Dri-FIT Utility Long Tights, men’s bottoms include 4-Way Stretch Slim Long Pants andEmbossed Woven Shorts whilst women’s bottoms include Embossed Woven Shorts and Dri-FIT Long Tights.
