We all know Nike Engineers are great at designs, functions and technical surprises. So, let's jump into it. Unless you plan to wear an oversized hoodie underneath this jacket, I would suggest sizing down one full size. I got last year's rope da dope jacket. This jacket is different in many respects: the front zipper is the new one is not as water tight as last year; the outside material is more brushed in the new one; the side pockets in the new one are not zippered, but have a cool inner lining to trap keys and wallet; there is a inside zipper pocket for an iPhone in the new one; the color of blue is very cool; the new jacket has warmth, but it is not as hot as last year's; the new jacket traps body heat less - I would say - so, it breathes a little better; you can cycle, hike, go to the park and outings in both; I use this year's to warm up my golf swing, shoot hoops, play soccer and toss a baseball with children. So, it is a really versatile jacket - and the graphics are nice, too. This is a really good spring weight jacket - that can shield you from wind and rain, too. I have a hunch that Nike will produce other versions over the coming years, as the jacket just fits the transition months from late-winter until late spring (and the autumn, too!). Love this jacket and so practical and useful!
