NIKE debuts Aerogami, a jacket equipped with automatic air vents technology that closes and opens to keep runners warm and cool as they jog. The air vents appear as creases and folds across the jacket where these tiny winged vents open as sweat builds against the runner’s skin, allowing better airflow and for sweat to escape. When their body cools down and sweat dries, the vents close back up.

 

The technology is made possible thanks to a moisture-reactive film applied to the vents that autonomously contracts and expands when it senses sweat against the body.  The new NIKE  Aerogami Jacket features the automatic air vents system across the chest and back of the apparel, two of the areas where runners heat up and sweat most as NIKE claims. The style enables airflow to travel through the jacket as runners move, be it in cold or hot seasons.

Nike Aerogami jacket caters to gender-specific needs

 

In NIKE Aerogami Jacket, the automatic air vents can pave the way for more-breathable performance gear with on-demand ventilation. ‘It is designed to create a product that interacts with your body in real-time as you warm up, sweat, and cool down,’ says NIKE. After conducting tests in the environmental chambers and analyzing the heat and sweat maps of runners, the placement of vents in the jackets was adjusted to cater to gender-specific requirements. For instance, the women’s jacket includes vents near the area where a sports bra sits.

 

‘We know feeling too warm, uncomfortable, and distracted while wearing a running jacket is a common challenge many runners face, so we’ve obsessed with developing an innovative solution that gives them 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,’ says Jahan Behbahany, Senior Apparel Innovation Product Manager in NIKE’s Advanced Innovation Collective. The women’s NIKE Run Division Aerogami Jacket releases in July 2023 while the men’s jacket releases in the fall of 2023.
