The 6 Best Nike Hoodie Styles for Any Activity

If you're in the market for a new hoodie, think about what purpose it should serve. From oversized and cosy to run-ready, these sweatshirts can serve a major purpose, no matter what you've got in store for the day. Check out these six key types of Nike hoodies to find the best style for you.

1. Hoodies for Everyday Wear: Nike Sportswear

The Nike Sportswear hoodie collection has everything that makes hoodies great for daily wear. From soft fabrics, front pockets and drawcords to pullover or zip-up styles—these options offer a variety of fits. There's a hoodie for just about every outfit—styles are available in basic-colour-and-Swoosh combos to standout prints to other flavours of design. Opt for a fleece material for extra warmth or go for a French terry fabric for a cosy, soft feel.

2. Hoodies for an Elevated Look: Nike Tech Fleece

With pullover and zip-up hoodies (and joggers to match), Nike Tech Fleece styles are an elevated version of comfy joggers. The bonded zip pocket, reflective-design-ticked drawcords and contrast taping are signature Tech Fleece details that stand out. And the hems and cuffs make for a tailored look. If you're looking for storage that's more secure than the classic kangaroo pocket, the bonded pocket on Nike Tech Fleece hoodies provides secure storage for keys, cards and a phone.

3. Hoodies for a Relaxed Look: Nike SB

Nike Skateboarding apparel is designed for a streetwear look that's versatile and high performing. From graphic hoodies to camouflage prints to edgy patterns, Nike SB hoodies are casual, comfortable and warm—and some styles are made from sustainable materials. Whether you're hitting the skatepark or heading into work, these multi-functional looks have got you covered.

4. Hoodies for Working Out: Nike Dri-FIT

Sometimes a workout calls for a hoodie, whether it's for layering before or after a workout, to wear during an outdoor game of basketball or for a chilly morning run. For easy on and off, consider a zip-up style instead of a pullover. Look for options that offer small pockets with zips to store small, essential items while you get moving.

A workout hoodie is best when it offers moisture-wicking fabrics that keep the body dry and cool. Nike Dri-FIT sweatshirts help disperse moisture over the surface of the fabric for faster evaporation to keep you warm without overheating or weighing you down. To keep your fingers warm, look for a hoodie with thumbholes in the sleeves.

5. Hoodies for Recovery: Nike Yoga

The key to a good yoga hoodie is having plenty of room to stretch. If you're wearing the hoodie to practise yoga, make sure you choose a hoodie with fabric that effortlessly moves with you. Or, for simply lounging at home, Nike Yoga hoodies provide that snuggly feel. Some styles are oversized or come in a fluffy French terry fabric that easily can be layered over other workout clothes or loungewear.

6. Hoodies for Hiking: Nike ACG

For an outdoor excursion, Nike All Conditions Gear designs hoodies inspired by nature and created to keep hikers and campers warm and comfortable. These hoodies can easily be worn over a base layer or on their own—and they'll make a statement on any adventure.

How to Care for a Hoodie Properly

Make sure you treat a new hoodie right when it's time to clean it. You'll want to make sure it doesn't fade, shrink or lose that fresh, soft feel. To preserve the newness of the hoodie as best as possible, follow a few easy washing tips, including turning it inside out before tossing it into the washing machine, and washing it in cold water. If your hoodie can survive a few wears before going into the laundry basket, that's helpful, too.
