The polyester is used mostly because it is hydrophobic. This means that it hates water and wants nothing to do with it. What does that mean for you and your clothing? The moisture from your sweat is less likely to be soaked up into the materials of your pants. Instead, they will roll right off of the article (with the help of Nike's Dri-FIT technology). Additionally, if there is any sweat or water that isn't wicked away and does get absorbed, it will evaporate quickly, leaving you dry. Polyester doesn't like to be wet any more than you do.
Nike's Dri-FIT technology is incorporated into the materials of the capris to give you an extra layer of protection against moisture. This material is going to help ensure your sweat is evaporated quickly and kept off your body as much as possible. It helps give everyone, including athletes, a dry and comfortable experience.
The use of spandex in the leggings is also fairly standard. This will help make sure that the pants are giving you a nice fit that can stay flexible, yet durable. The pants will be able to move and bend with your body, so you aren't feeling restricted or held back at all.
Both polyester and spandex are durable fabrics, and together, they stay that way. You aren't going to have to worry too much about the materials wearing down and causing holes and tears in the fabric.
By nature, polyester isn't the most breathable material out there, but that doesn't mean it can't offer some ventilation. Yes, there are fabrics out there that would allow for better ventilation. However, those materials don't work so well with athletic apparel. Cotton is better at letting air flow, but it also absorbs and retains moisture, making it a poor fabric for these types of clothing.
Yes, you are going to sacrifice a little breathability, but that doesn't mean you are going to forego it altogether. You will still get a decent amount of ventilation to help cool you down while you're on to go. What you are sacrificing; however, you are going to make up for in keeping dry.
Moisture, whether from your sweat or the humidity in the air, will wick away from the material of these pants. Once it gets wet, the moisture will bead up and roll right off of the material. This will allow it to evaporate away quickly, so you aren't stuck in damp clothing all day long.
Of course, staying dry and comfortable is dependant on the breathability of the apparel. As stated above, these leggings are breathable so that isn't something that you will have to worry about. Your sweat will bead up on the fabric of the capris and thanks to the ventilation in the pants; the moisture can evaporate and leave you with a dry and comfortable feeling.
