The Adidas Meade vest is perfect for those who like to get up and go. The intended use of the jacket is actually for skaters, those who like to hit the streets but don't want the cold air stopping them from having fun. The garment blends functionality for skaters with a great style that fits right in on the streets.

Whether you are a skateboarder or not, you can enjoy the use of the Adidas Meade vest. It's lightweight and flexible, allowing you to move around unrestricted and with ease. The light padding will help keep you warm when the temperature drops.

Some customers might prefer to use the Adidas Meade as a running vest, allowing them to get out and enjoy their workout while staying warm and comfortable. There aren't many activities that you can't participate in while wearing the product.

Just because the intended wearers of the Adidas Meade vest are skaters, doesn't mean you can't wear it where and when you want. The versatility is terrific, making it an all-around great product.


Adidas strives to make comfortable apparel for athletes of all kinds. They did not disappoint with the creation of the Meade vest. Customers can agree that the garment feels fantastic while they're out and about, giving them all-day comfort.

The Adidas Meade does a decent job at keeping you warm when the temperature drops. There isn't a whole lot of padding, however, so if it's sub-zero out there, you might want to wear layers or choose a different product. That said, if you are heading out in the chilly air of spring or fall, this will be the perfect choice to keep you warm and comfortable.

The lightweight insulation helps warm your core, so you stay toasty enough outside, but it can also help disperse your body heat so you aren't getting too warm. In other words, it's going to keep you warm enough, so you don't freeze but also prevent you from overheating. They found the perfect balance, and you can take advantage of it.

The Adidas Meade vest is lightweight and flexible, allowing you to move around unhindered. There's no need to feel restricted, or like you're walking around carrying a weight on your back. The vest will not limit your movements or slow you down, keeping you feeling great.

Another feature you can take advantage of that increases your comfort level is the length of the vest. The Adidas Meade is a little longer in the back than your traditional athletic jacket, giving you better coverage. You can rest easy when hitting the streets, knowing that you will stay covered and comfortable.


The shell of the Adidas Meade is made out of 100% polyester, using a plain weave. This fabric is durable; you won't have to worry about unintentional ripping or tearing. It's going to stay intact for quite a while.

Adidas uses 100% recycled polyester for the lining of the vest. Again, they use a plain weave for the material to give it a little extra durability. The use of recycled water bottles to make polyester for the vest makes it a fantastic option for those who are looking for an eco-friendly option. It's nice to know that by wearing the Adidas Meade vest you are doing a little part to help save the planet.

Finally, the filling in the Adidas Meade vest consists of polyester padding, which is a form of synthetic insulation. The use of polyester as opposed to other materials means that it is going to be able to wick away moisture, dry faster, and is completely hypoallergenic.

Since every aspect of the Adidas Meade vest is a form of polyester, you can be sure that it will be durable and experience a longer lifespan than most. Polyester is a strong fiber, combined with the plain weave just makes it even more robust. Additionally, it's hydrophobic, meaning that you will be able to keep the vest dry longer, and when it does get wet it'll dry quickly.


When you're hitting the streets, on foot or skateboard, you want to make sure that you are wearing something that can keep you warm enough in the cold but will also offer a decent amount of breathability. You want to stay warm but not get too hot.

Thankfully, the Adidas Meade has just what you need. The lightweight insulation does a good job protecting you from the chill in the air, but the vest also offers a decent amount of ventilation.

Air can easily flow through the vest and help disperse your body heat. This will prevent you from getting too warm and overheating. If you find that the ventilation of the product itself isn't quite enough, you can always unzip it a little to allow more airflow into it.

Overall, customers are content with the level of breathability they get with the Adidas Meade vest.


When hitting the streets, protection is essential. You want to make sure that you're safe and protected while you are out and about. The Adidas Meade vest can't offer you a ton of this, but it can provide you with some.

As mentioned above, the Adidas Meade can do a decent job of protecting you from the cold temperatures. The polyester insulation can keep you warm and toasty when the temp drops. That said, if you're heading out in sub-freezing
temperatures, you might want to consider additional layers or a different option.

One thing that this vest does not provide that some others might is reflective detailing. If you are skating in the early morning or at sundown (or even on a gloomy day), you need to make sure you are seen by others to prevent unnecessary accidents. Since the Adidas Meade doesn't give you that reflective detailing, you might want to consider pairing the vest with other items to provide you with the safety you need.


The Adidas Meade brings you a decent style that a lot of customers can stand behind. The vest has a sleeveless design (it's a vest after all) with a full zip closure. There is a short, stand up collar to help shield your neck from the wind and cold while you're out and about.

The jacket features an extended length so you can make sure to get all the coverage you need while you're out and about. Sometimes, having a little extra length in the back makes all of the difference.

The Adidas Meade has pockets, which customers love. There are side pockets, one on each side, and a back pocket. The pouch in the back is there so you can fold the vest up and store it in that pocket. That doesn't mean, however, that you can't use it to store some of your essentials if need be.

The vest is only available in one color, collegiate navy/black. Yes, it would be ideal if there was a wider selection, but most consumers are content with the one available to them. The Adidas Meade features a screen-printed Adidas Skateboarding Trefoil logo on the left side of the chest as well as the iconic three stripes across the back pouch.


When hitting the streets, you want to make sure that the clothing you are wearing fit you properly. You want the vest to be tight enough that it will not get in your way and slow you down. At the same time, you want to leave room under the vest for additional layers for warmth.

The Adidas Meade has a regular fit, meaning that it should hang loosely around your body without being too baggy. The chest has a slightly looser fit.

The vest appears to be running true to size, so that should take some of the guesswork out of picking the correct size for you. There was an isolated complaint that the vest was running a bit big, but that doesn't seem to be the case for the majority of consumers. If you aren't sure what you should order, you can always glance at the sizing chart for a better idea.


When it comes to your running gear, sustainability is crucial. You want to ensure that you aren't wasting your money on an inferior product. The good news is that the Adidas Meade vest has a sturdy build that will not experience premature wear and tear.

The use of polyester in the Adidas Meade vest, as well as the plain weave of the materials, ensures that you won't experience unexpected rips and tears. If you get snagged on a tree branch, or other obstacles while you're out and about you can rest easy knowing the garment will stay in one piece.


When heading out for a workout, you can expect to sweat. The harder you push the more you'll sweat, and that can start to seep into the materials of your apparel. Just because the Adidas Meade is mostly polyester doesn't mean that it can't absorb some of that moisture. After a while, if not properly and regularly cleaned and cared for, it will start to stink.

The good news is that the Adidas Meade is machine washable so you can easily clean it. The bad news, however, is that you should clean it separately from the rest of your laundry. It requires that you wash it in cold water on the delicate cycle. You can tumble dry the vest on low heat as well. Avoid dry cleaning, bleach, fabric softener, and ironing.

As long as you're taking care of your vest correctly, you can be sure to stay clean and fresh smelling. It's also going to increase the longevity of the product drastically.


One of the best features of the Adidas Meade, according to customers, is the value. It has a moderate MSRP, but since it's an older model you can generally find it for much cheaper. Even at full price, however, the vest is a stellar deal.

The lightweight vest with excellent insulation makes a great outer layer for cold weather activities. Whether you're skating, running, or biking, the Adidas Meade makes a great option.

The price is right, and the durability is on point. Everything aligns to make the Adidas Meade the perfect deal for anyone in the market for a vest.

Bottom Line

The Adidas Meade skateboarding vest is an excellent choice for those looking for an affordable option. It has a lower price tag than most and a decent lifespan, making it a great investment in your athletic gear.

The vest can keep you warm in the colder temperature while still preventing you from getting too hot while you're on the go. It's lightweight, so there is no feeling of weights on your back while you're out and about. Additionally, you will still get optimal mobility, no sense of restriction.

The Adidas Meade has pockets that come in handy when you want to stash your essentials. The back pouch even seconds as a place to fold your vest up and store it, giving you a convenient storage bag.

Overall, customers seem to really like the Adidas Meade vest. Consumers highly recommend it.
