Nike Aeroloft retains heat while allowing vapor release with innovative perforated down technology.
A new range of Nike apparel products assist the body’s natural ability to regulate temperature when running in a variety of conditions. The innovations are informed by Nike’s "Nature Amplified" design ethos — an approach focused on the body in motion and fueled by scientific data and athlete insights — to keep runners comfortable, protected and focused on performing at their best.
Nike designers and engineers worked with scientists in the world-class Nike Sport Research Lab (NSRL), and with members of Nike’s Advanced Innovation Team, to gain valuable information about how the body behaves in motion and responds to materials of varying weight, composition and thermal properties.
Nike Aeroloft technology addresses the challenge of keeping runners warm, but not too warm, in cooler conditions. The innovation debuts in the Nike Aeroloft 800 Vest, an ultra-light insulating layer composed of perforated down. Movement activates ventilation in the vest, allowing heat to escape the body through laser-cut holes situated between the down chambers. The 800-fill down is body-mapped to maximize mobility and warmth where needed most. Wicking Dri-FIT side and shoulder panels further boost breathability, while the rip-stop nylon exterior provides durability and protection from wind. Lightweight and low-profile, the Nike Aeroloft 800 Vest folds up to fit in a pocket for easy layering and carrying.
“Nike Aeroloft represents a breakthrough in designing apparel for a broad spectrum of athlete needs and weather conditions,” says Lee Holman, VP of Nike Apparel Design. “We achieved this by studying athletes in motion and listening to their feedback, and backed it up with rigorous lab and field testing.”
Nike Aeroloft was tested extensively on a specially designed sweating mannequin in the NSRL and by elite runners in rugged conditions in New Zealand and Japan. Scientists analyzed the effectiveness of everything from perforation placement to the size of down baffles to the type and amount of insulation used. The new technology will roll out in future Nike products across different sports.
The Nike Aeroloft 800 Vest ( $180) will be available globally beginning Sept. 1 and can be pre-ordered at nike.com/aeroloft.
Nike’s popular Dri-FIT technology is proven to keep athletes dry and comfortable by moving sweat away from the skin to a garment’s outer layer. Now, Dri-FIT expands into new fabrications and apparel designs to serve performance, fit and comfort needs in a variety of conditions.
“Nike designers focus on solving problems to enhance athlete performance. We know that athletes want to maintain an ideal body temperature. They want quick-drying apparel and they want their clothing to move with them,” says VP of Design John Hoke. “Dri-FIT Knit, Dri-FIT Touch and Dri-FIT Wool answer these needs.”
Nike Dri-FIT Knit is an ultra-soft, lightweight fabric incorporating visibly different knit patterns to provide stretch and optimal cooling benefits. An open texture on the sides of garments promotes breathability in key sweat zones, and seamless construction ensures a smooth fit free of distraction.
Nike Dri-FIT Touch is a featherweight fabric with a soft, natural feel, providing cool comfort for hot conditions. Garments are cut to promote cooling and full range of motion.
Nike Dri-FIT Wool is composed of lamb’s wool and polyester to provide warmth, breathability and mobility. Unlike pure wool, the blend moves sweat away from the body and dries quickly. Flat-seam construction reduces potential irritation from chafing and ensures garments fit smoothly over the body.
Nike Dri-FIT Knit is available on nike.com/drifitknit.
