SAUCONY NOMAD running jacket with flex shield


Saucony has taken the same detailed, high quality construction that they put into their world class shoe line and created the SAUCONY NOMAD full zip running jacket.  The NOMAD is hitting stores in August 2014.  As summer comes to a close it is essential to have a jacket that can handle everything that unpredictable weather throws your way.  If it is rainy fall, or snowy winter, this jacket is the go to light weight shell that delivers comfort and warmth.

FIT- the Saucony NOMAD is an incredibly well constructed all weather jacket.  The sleeves are just the right length with elastic waist band and wrist bands.  The shoulders feel just right during long runs.  There is no weird rubbing with arms moving back and forth.  The NOMAD is built with a slim construction that makes it fit comfortably.

TECNICAL- This jacket is very water resistant, warm and breathable.  The flexible water resistant shell keeps you dry and allows for movement.  The flexible material allows for smooth movement.    With a thin waffle felt material on the inside it provides wicking that keeps moisture off the torso and lets air circulate with every movement.  The ventilation is good.  After multiple washes the jacket looks and feels as good as new.


FEATURES- The NOMAD has front and back reflective strips that are small but pack a bright flash.  The thumb hole wrist is perfect for the start of the colder morning run and when you warm up you can pop your hands back out.  The top and bottom zips with a nice easy to grab zipper.  The side vents provide stretch and freedom of movement and flexibility.

I have ran in the NOMAD in rain, snow, and extremely cold temps.  This is the finest running specific jacket that I have ever used!
