5 Warm Styles of Nike Sweatpants for Winter

1. Nike Tech Fleece Joggers and Sweatpants

Fleece apparel is a cold-weather essential — and there’s no shortage of Nike fleece sweats to get you through the winter. For a premium, polished look, go with a pair of Nike Tech Fleece bottoms.

These joggers are roomy in the thigh, but they feature a tapered design that narrows at the knee, offering a tailored look for everyday wear. The joggers feature tall, ribbed cuffs at the ankle and a zippered pocket on the leg. Complete the look with a matching Nike Tech Fleece hoodie.

2. Nike Club Fleece Joggers and Sweatpants

Club Fleece is the top-selling Nike fleece. The brushed-fleece fabric feels soft, smooth and cozy — and the fit of these sweatpants is roomy and relaxed. These sweats come with an elastic waistband and adjustable drawcord for a casual, customizable fit.

Some styles feature a loose, open hem at the bottom, while others feature elastic or ribbed cuffs at the ankle. If Nike Tech Fleece is made for a premium look, consider Club Fleece your trusted, cozy sweatpants to wear while lounging at home or to throw on for a quick errand.

3. Nike Therma-FIT Joggers and Sweatpants

Found in Nike jackets, sweatshirts, sweatpants and more, Nike Therma-FIT technology is designed to manage the body’s heat to help keep warm in cold conditions. You can find several types of sweatpants made with Nike Therma-FIT technology, including high-performance training pants made for tough workouts, cozy yoga pants and everyday joggers.

Nike Forward sweatpants, which feature heat-regulating Nike Therma-FIT ADV technology, are made with the newest Nike apparel innovation. Not a knit or a woven, Nike Forward material is made with ultra-thin, needle-punched layers of fibers, resulting in a lightweight material that provides year-round warmth.

Due to the use of recycled materials, lower energy use and lower material density, the first Nike Forward collection was made with an average of 75-percent less carbon output when compared with traditional knit fleece.

4. Nike Phoenix Fleece Joggers and Sweatpants

Nike Phoenix Fleece has a smooth feel on the outside and a brushed, cozy fleece on the inside, ideal for colder temperatures.

Made with a cotton-polyester blend and similar to the Club Fleece collection, Nike Phoenix Fleece features unique and elevated sweatpant styles, including high-waisted, oversize sweatpants, wide-leg styles and slim-fit, tailored cuts.

The tall, ribbed waistline of these sweats is designed to sit higher on the hips for a fit that will feel snug and stay put.

5. Nike ACG Polartec Joggers and Sweatpants

For the coldest of conditions, enter Nike All Conditions Gear (ACG). This line of footwear and apparel was created for braving the outdoor elements — and Nike ACG joggers and sweatpants are no exception.

Some styles, including the Nike ACG Polartec® "Wolf Tree" Pants for men and women, feature Polartec®, an ultra-soft and breathable fleece that helps hold in warm air while letting moisture escape, so sweat won’t build up as the body gets warm.

To create these pants, the design team found inspiration from Smith Rock, a rock-climbing playground in Central Oregon.

Bonus: These sweats are made with 100-percent recycled polyester fibers.
