Comfort

When you're outside running, you are putting your body through a lot. Pushing yourself can lead to a certain amount of discomfort to your body, but that is something you would expect. There is no reason that your outerwear should cause you any additional discomfort.

The good news about the Nike Aeroloft Vest is that it will not add to that discomfort. In fact, customers believe that the vest offers exceptional comfort to keep you cozy throughout your run.

The vest will give a decent amount of protection from the cold weather, increasing your overall experience while you're out and about.

It's lightweight and flexible so you can stay comfortable all day long.

The ability to keep you heated in the cold without getting too hot along with the lightweight and flexible design, make the Nike Aeroloft Vest a comfortable running vest that anyone can appreciate.

Materials

Nike uses a mix of polyester and spandex in the makeup of the Aeroloft running vest. Polyester is a common material used in most athletic apparel. It helps keep you dry by repelling moisture. If it does happen to absorb moisture, either rain or sweat, it will dry quickly. Polyester hates being wet just about as much as you do so it will work hard to keep that from happening.

The use of spandex helps keep the Nike Aeroloft Vest stretchy enough to offer you flexibility and comfort. Spandex is a synthetic fiber that offers stellar elasticity so you can be sure that you will get the stretch you need in the vest. Additionally, it's strong enough that it won't rip or tear, and if you stretch it, the material will bounce back and keep its original shape. You won't have to deal with a vest that is stretched out and unwearable.

Breathability

Just because you are running around in the cold doesn't mean that breathability shouldn't be a priority in your outerwear. Yes, you want to make sure that your running vest can keep you warm and prevent you from freezing, but you need more than that. You need something that is breathable and allows air to flow through the materials. You need a vest that will keep you warm but prevent you from getting too hot.

The Nike Aeroloft Vest offers the perfect balance. The insulation will keep you warm and toasty when the temperatures drop, but the ventilation will keep you from getting too hot and overheating while you're out and about.

The use of Nike's Aeroloft technology helps ensure the vest can keep you warm enough for the cold weather, but not too warm. The ultra-lightweight insulating layers in the garment is composed of perforated down to allow optimal airflow. Your movements activated the ventilation of the Nike Aeroloft Vest, letting the heat escape your body through the laser-cut holes located between the down chambers. It helps disperse your body heat and allows air into the vest, giving you fantastic temperature control.

Style

The Nike Aeroloft Vest is, after all, a vest, so you can expect that it has a sleeveless design, allowing a full range of motion while you're out and about. Additionally, the vest features a full front zip closure for ease in putting it on and taking it off.

There are a few color options that you can choose from. You can pick between black and metallic silver; pure platinum, black, and metallic silver; or thunder blue. Regardless of the color you choose, each vest features some reflective detailing in both the front and back. It's not a lot, but enough to give you some added protection and it adds to the overall aesthetics of the vest.

Fit

When you are purchasing the Nike Aeroloft Vest, you want to make sure that you get a size that will fit you properly. Keep in mind that you will need a little extra room to layer underneath the vest, so you don't want it too snug. At the same time, if it is too loose, then it will just get in the way while you're out and about. You want to find that perfect balance.

The Nike Aeroloft Vest comes in sizes small through extra-large. If you aren't sure what size would work best for you, you can always take a look at Nike's sizing chart. This will give you a better idea of what you need for your body size.

Protection

The Nike Aeroloft Vest can offer customers a decent amount of protection on their runs. It's essential to stay safe while you're out there and it's nice to know that you have a running vest that can provide you some of the protection that you need.

The vest, of course, will keep you safe from the elements. It has fantastic insulation that will work to keep your core warm and toasty when heading out in the colder months. Not only will it keep you warm, but it's going to make sure you aren't getting too hot either. The laser perforations will protect you from overheating while you're on the go.

You are also going to get a little moisture protection from the Nike Aeroloft Vest. Nike's Dri-FIT technology is in use in this vest so you can be sure to stay nice and dry. It's going to wick moisture away from your skin and the vest itself so you will stay dry and comfortable.

In addition to protection from the cold, the vest features safety features for running in low-light conditions. There is reflective detailing on both the front and back of the garment. It's not a lot so you might want to pair the vest with reflective gear still, but anything is better than nothing. It's important that you can stay seem when heading out in low-visibility conditions. It's nice to know that the Nike Aeroloft Vest can give you a little extra protection when it comes to that.

Durability

Durability is essential when it comes to your running gear. You want to make sure that the items you are spending your hard-earned money on are going to last you. It's super frustrating when you are getting ready to head out and find that your vest is damaged and you can no longer wear it.

Thankfully, this is not a problem that you will have to worry about when it comes to the Nike Aeroloft Vest. It is highly durable. Nike had athletes in mind when designing this vest so you can believe that it can keep up with your active lifestyle.

The use of polyester and spandex in the Nike Aeroloft Vest helps the durability. These materials are strong enough that you won't have to worry about unexpected rips or tears. Even if you snag the vest on a branch, or anything else, you won't have to worry about the materials tearing.

Value

The Nike Aeroloft Vest has a pretty high price tag. Even when you compare this one to other running vests on the market, it's a bit steep. Some consumers don't mind paying the higher price tag, however, since the garment will last. The fact that it will not suffer from premature wear and tear makes the vest a decent investment.

The Nike Aeroloft Vest is a plain and simple vest. Because of that, there are some consumers who don't think that the garment is worth the cost. They believe that if they are going to pay that price, they want something with more features.

Overall, it appears to be more of a personal preference.

Care

A lot of people are under the assumption that you don't have to wash your running vest as often as the rest of your running gear, and that might be the case on some occasions. More often than not, though, that isn't the case. When you're active, and you sweat, that sweat will seep into the materials of your athletic apparel, including your vest. After a while, if you aren't keeping the clothing clean, it will start to stink. Nobody wants to the smelly person in the room.

You want to make sure that you are washing your vest regularly to keep it looking clean and smelling fresh. The good news is that the Nike Aeroloft Vest is machine washable, the bad news is that you can't just toss it in with the rest of your laundry.

You will want to wash the vest with cold water and avoid bleach or fabric softener. To dry the Nike Aeroloft Vest, you will want to tumble dry it on low heat with a tennis ball. The use of the ball will help fluff the vest up and keep it looking great.

Bottom Line

If you want to get up and go but don't want the dropping temperatures to stop you then you are in luck. The Nike Aeroloft Vest does a stellar job at keeping you warm and toasty while you're out and about. The running vest gives you the ability to enjoy your outdoor activities with ease while still staying comfortable.

The lightweight and flexible design allow you to do what you love without the burden you'd experience with some other outerwear. It's not going to feel like a burden on your back. Additionally, you will have the freedom to move around unrestricted. The Nike Aeroloft Vest really does do a fantastic job at keeping you as comfortable as possible.

The Nike Aeroloft Vest might have a high price tag, but don't let that push you away. It's a great vest with amazing durability. You are going to be able to keep this product as part of your running gear for quite a while.

Overall, customers love the Nike Aeroloft Vest.
