Use

The Nike Women's Legend 2.0 capris are perfect for a plethora of activities. Most consumers will choose to wear while being active, whether biking, running, or spending time in the weight room.

The Dri-FIT materials and the flexibility of the pants make them the perfect choice for those who are active. They will move with your body, so there are no restrictions to your movements while you are on the go. Additionally, the breathability of the materials and moisture-wicking properties ensure that you are going to be able to stay cool and dry while you're pushing yourself at the gym.

That doesn't mean, however, that you have to lead an active lifestyle to wear the tights.

Some consumers will choose to wear these capris as a pair of casual bottoms, pairing them with a t-shirt or tank top to lounge around the house or run errands. Others choose to wear them while doing their house or yard work. The possibilities are endless.

The high comfort level and versatile design allow you to wear these capris for a wide variety of occasions.

Materials

As is typical in athletic apparel, the Nike Women's Legend 2.0 capris are made out of a mixture of polyester and spandex, leaning heavily on the polyester. They have an 88% polyester and 12% spandex blend to ensure you are getting an excellent fit and optimal comfort.

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.

Breathability

When it comes to the clothing that you are putting on your body, breathability is essential. You need to make sure that what you are wearing allows for a decent amount of ventilation, so you don't get too hot while you're working out. Feeling like you are about to overheat isn't a pleasant feeling and thanks to the breathable materials of these capris you shouldn't have to experience it.

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.

Dri-FIT

As mentioned above, the Nike Women's Legend 2.0 capris are made using Dri-FIT materials. This fabric helps ensure that your clothing is going to stay relatively dry while you are wearing them. You won't have to worry about the moisture from your sweat soaking through your clothes, causing you irritation and discomfort throughout your workout.

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.

Fit

For the most part, reviewers can agree that these capris fit as expected. There are a handful of consumers who stated that they thought they were a bit on the small side, but that was a small percentage of customers and didn't represent the majority.

It is crucial to the overall comfort level of your pants that you get the correct size. If you are stuck in an ill-fitting pair of pants, then you are causing yourself unnecessary discomfort. If your pants are too big, then they become a hassle and just get in your way. If they are too small, then you can restrict your movement and cause discomfort or pain. You want to make sure that you are getting the right size for your body.

If you find that you don't know what size you should get, you can always take a look at the sizing chart that Nike provides. It is better to look at it and make sure you get the right size than to simply guess and have to deal with the hassle of returning an ill-fitting pair of capris.
