Nike Pacer Half-Zip Review
Customers love the Nike Pacer Half-Zip jacket, stating that it is extremely comfortable and easy to run in. It is a perfect choice for just about any workout. It is going to keep you both warm and dry while you are out and about thanks to the Dri-FIT tech. It has reflective detailing all around it so you can be sure to stay visible if you are heading out on a gloomy day. The moderate price tag is not too bad, especially from a Nike product, but the added comfort and longevity of it makes it worth the cost. Keep in mind if you are planning on buying this jacket that consumers have stated that it is running a little large, and the sleeves are a bit too long for their liking, so that is something to take into consideration when choosing your size. Overall, it is a great jacket and comes recommended by most customers. Don't let a little rain and cold stop you from getting outside and doing what you love.

Sleeves are too long
Polyester is a great fabric that is used for many types of athletic wear. It is inexpensive, which allows Nike to keep the cost down so they can give you a more affordable product. Not only is it cheaper to make, but it is also a lot more durable than some other types of fabric. It is made from mixing together different chemicals to create a much more sustainable fiber. It is less likely to shrink that some other materials and will hold it's shape much better, keeping your jacket from stretching out or shrinking, allowing you to keep it as part of your coat closet for a long time.
One of the best advantages to using this kind of material in your athletic clothing, however, is that is has a lower absorbancy level, so you are not going to get soaked through with your sweat, causing you discomfort and adding extra weight to what you are wearing. This is going to help keep you dry since the materials will not just absorb the moisture from your sweat or the weather.
The polyester material of the Pacer is soft and unrestricted. The fitted construction fits you well without being too tight or too baggy, allowing you to move freely without restraint.
The jacket is breathable and uses Dri-FIT technology to keep you dry so you do not have to sit around in damp clothing while you are out and about. At the same time, it does a great job at keeping you warm while you're heading out on a chilly morning or late fall day. You do not have to let the cold keep you indoors, and this jacket will keep you warm and comfy.
It features reflective detail that will help keep you more visible in low light conditions. If you are going out for a workout in the cold and gloomy weather, chances are it is not going to be the brightest outside so you want to make sure that you are staying visible to others who are out there with you. As long as you are seen you have a better chance of not getting into an accident with another pedestrian or being struck by a vehicle or cyclist. It is crucial to make sure that you can be seen and the Pacer is going to help give you that reflective detail that will help you out in that department.
The Nike will also help give you a little extra protection from the elements when you are heading out for an outdoor workout. The breathable material will help get some airflow into the jacket to help keep you comfortable while the materials will aid in keeping the heat trapped inside to ensure you are staying warm enough when venturing out into the cold. The Dri-FIT tech will protect you from moisture, whether from the sweat from your body or the rain if you get caught in a drizzle while you're out and about.
Some customers mentioned that they felt this one had a more slim fit then they liked, stating that it does not have a lot of extra room to move around. Again, it is not too tight and not restrictive at all, but it does not have a lot of extra room. If you prefer a roomier fit then you can consider going up a size or choosing a different running jacket.
The Nike coat runs right around the middle of the line when it comes to the price tag. It is not the cheapest on the market, but it is by no means the most costly either. For a Nike product, however, it has a pretty decent price that many consumers can appreciate. The excellent quality and the longevity of the product makes customers happy, stating that it is well worth the amount that you would pay for it.
Customers have stated that this is running just a tad on the large side so if you are in between sizes you should opt to choose the next one to make sure that you have enough room in the jacket. The biggest complaint, however, is that the sleeves are too long. If you have short arms, then this one might not be the best or most comfortable pull over for you.
The jacket has a slightly curved hem, which is excellent because it will extend a little longer in the back, giving you more coverage. Many consumers can appreciate the extra length in the rear of the jacket so it gives you more coverage for warmth and comfort.
There isn't a lot of information on the exact weight of the jacket but based on the design and customer comments, it can be presumed that it is not at all bulky and uncomfortable.
It is available in both men's and women's styles, both with a couple of different color options that you can choose from. Men have the choice of black, Gunsmoke and heather, blue void and heather, burgundy crush and heather, night maroon, or team royal. Women can pick from pink heather and Guave ice, obsidian and heather, black, Gunsmoke and heather, burgundy and heather, or regency purple and reflective silver.
No matter what color you choose, the top has reflective detailing to keep you visible when heading out in low light conditions. The logo on the chest, as well as a stripe on the back, provide this safety feature that you can take advantage of when you're running outside.
