Everyone knows that icky feeling of sweaty clothes sticking to your skin after an intense workout. Essentially, Nike doesn’t want you to feel that way anymore with its self-ventilating Aerogami technology, debuting on its Run Division Aerogami Jacket.
So what exactly is this technology all about? It’s a problem-solver, really. Aerogami adapts to its wearer’s needs, acting as a moisture-reactive venting system. Basically. When you sweat is when the jacket knows it’s time to cool you down, with tiny vents automatically opening to cool you down and also knowing when to close to warm you back up.
This technology is used at the front and back of the running jacket, covering both areas prone to heating up during a run. Informed by runners and developed by researchers and scientists from the Nike Explore Team and the Nike Sport Research Lab, Aerogami is a researched, thought-through product tested time and time again that puts the wearer and their needs at the forefront.
As Nike has been outpouring a range of women-focused products, responding to her own specific needs, the Run Division Aergami Jacket will first release in a women’s version in July, with the menswear one hitting the stores later this year. Nike has created two gendered pieces for a simple reason: men and women have different sweat zones, and therefore, different needs.
Speaking on the technology, Nike’s Innovation Product Manager from the brand’s Advanced Innovation Collective Jahan Behbahany stated “we’ve obsessed developing an innovative solution that gives [runners] increased breathability without compromising style and protection. What’s great about this technology is not only can the athlete feel the benefit, but they can also see it.”
