The Best Nike Jackets: Our Picks
What does the Nike windbreaker jacket look like?
Recently the company did a makeover, combining the old look with new technologies. The new windbreakers, or Windrunners, are 100% polyester in their lining. The lining is in mesh, a breathable fabric made of recyclable polyester. To stay aesthetically faithful to the original line, it has reinforced cuffs and hem and the Chevron symbol, a kind of wide arrow, which marked the model in the past.
What are the differences between the women's and men's Nike jacket?
In some cases, there are exclusive colour palettes for each gender. But no blue and pink! In the Nike Air jacket, for example, the male is white, black and red, without hood, with a "geometric" design, with stripes and lines with different colours. The women's jacket, on the other hand, is grey, worked with Nike Air brand details, has a hood, cuffs with thumb hole and comes with a small nécessaire.
Nike SB jacket, NBA or football?
The Nike basketball jackets are focused on the NBA, with models dedicated to teams like Golden State Warriors or Cleveland Cavaliers, having exclusive prints, design with the shield of the franchise, etc. The Nike Therma Flex Showtime goes further, combining the look of the courts with a super flexible fabric and ready to play. Football, perhaps Nike's main segment, has jackets of all kinds. There are casual ones, which follow the same logic as the NBA pieces, there are the official jackets of clubs like Corinthians and Internacional, designed for training, and there are even warm-up jackets, like the Strike Anthem, of the Brazilian National Team.

Purchase Criteria: finding your Nike jacket
Now let's talk about your purchase, or rather, the moment of purchase, and which model will be chosen at that time. To ensure it's the right one for you, we've put together the list below, which is made up of points to note about the product and its use - choice criteria, in other words.
You didn't think we weren't going to explain them one by one, did you? So pay attention, so that your purchase is the most informed, and therefore the best possible.
As there are several types of Nike jackets, knowing the use that you intend to give to your model makes your choice much easier. As versatile as these pieces are, there is an ideal use for each variety. For those who want to play sports, a Sportswear, a Windrunner or even some of the sporty ones, for those who want a fine outfit, and can afford it, a collection jacket, and so on.
A quick and practical way to start your choice is to notice the caps, or lack of them, on the models. Beyond a question of taste, the cap changes the whole dynamic of a jacket. The cap, for example, can make a model heavier or complement the protection of a windbreaker. Its absence, in the same logic, can make a piece more stylish
The technologies embedded in the fabrics are another good guide to your choice for the ideal Nike jacket. They are indicators of the wearing experience of each model, an essential element to define the best one for you. The best example is the renowned Dry-Fit technology, which makes the model much lighter, thinner. The Power 550, on the other hand, denotes the amount of thermal insulation in the jacket, leaving it more protected, and heavier too.
In the end, one of the most valuable points in a Nike jacket is its versatility. After all, we wear a jacket because we know it solves almost every problem. It protects from the cold but doesn't overheat, it's lightweight but durable, and it goes with almost any outfit. That is what you should look for in your ideal model, a jacket for many places, activities, outfits and occasions. A light, comfortable and resistant fabric, a sober print, but with personality, and pockets, always lots of pockets.
