For anyone who enjoys running or walking outdoors, or just for travelling to and from the gym, this is a seriously good jacket. I wore mine early this morning on an uphill/downhill fast walk leaving when it was just 3 degrees.
The benefits of this Nike Legend 2 jacket are not just that it’s flattering and will keep you warm (but not over warm), but that it has the pockets to take all the essentials I want to take out with me on a walk – namely a mini charger and cable (as my iPhone has a ridiculously short battery life), headphones, tissues and a bottle of water, which I put into one of the interior slip pockets which they frequently don’t bother to mention in the details.
The jacket is of soft, lightweight, easily packable fabric, and has two zipped pockets and thumb-holes, which are excellent particularly if it’s chilly when you’re starting out.
Nike seems to bring out its Legend jacket in different colourways each season, my favourite is one with a contrast zip such as this black and pink one. Be warned, on most websites this jacket sells out the minute it appears so don’t hold back…..
Previously I’ve always been happy to go walking in a normal hoodie but if you want to keep your belongings secure so that they can’t fall out, and want a jacket that’s trim, fun and totally functional, this one is well worth a try. Bear in mind that it is a performance jacket, and so fit will be a little on the small size. I’m a normal size 10/12 depending on the brand and take a size M in Nike.
