Nike Shield Flash Jacket

The Nike Shield Flash Jacket combines water resistance and reflectivity into one sleek design. In low light conditions, the reflective material provides 360-degrees of reflectivity helping runners stay visible. The upper body and sleeves feature Storm-FIT 10 fabrication, providing breathable wind-and-water-resistance, keeping water out and allowing sweat vapors to escape. Subtle perforations down the jacket’s back help enhance breathability.

The jacket’s design integrates special details tailored for runners, including hand warmers that pull down from the sleeves to keep hands covered and a runner-specific hood that stays put to help keep ears warm in inclement weather.

Nike Aeroloft

One challenge of winter running is finding, and remaining at, the right level of warmth in changing climates. Informed by the “Nature Amplified” design ethos, the Nike Aeroloft 800 Vest addresses this challenge, featuring an ultra-light insulating layer composed of perforated down.

Tested by elite runners in rugged conditions, the lightweight vest features 800-fill down body-mapped to maximize mobility and warmth where needed most. The runner’s movement activates ventilation in the vest, allowing heat to escape the body through laser-cut holes situated between the down chambers. Wicking Dri-FIT side and shoulder panels further boost breathability, while the rip-stop nylon exterior provides durability and protection from wind.

If the weather warms up mid-run, the Nike Aeroloft 800 Vest folds up to fit in a pocket for easy layering and carrying.

Nike Dri-FIT Wool

Nike’s popular Dri-FIT technology is proven to help keep athletes dry and comfortable by moving sweat away from the skin to a garment’s outer layer where it can evaporate. For cool conditions, Nike Dri-FIT Wool is composed of lamb’s wool and polyester to provide warmth, breathability and mobility. Unlike pure wool, this blend includes Nike Dri-FIT to move sweat away from the body and dry quickly. Flat-seam construction reduces potential irritation from chafing and ensures garments fit smoothly over the body.
