Nike Element Shield Full-Zip Jacket

It’s been a mild winter, but I’ve worn this with an Under Armour Cold Gear base layer and and a wicking t-shirt or long sleeve and stayed nice and warm.  The jacket is wind and water resistant with a thermal lining.  I’ve been out in a light drizzle and stayed dry, however, I think in a hard rain the back and sleeves will collect a lot of water.  The backside of the sleeves and the entire back below the shoulders are a breathable thermal material for good ventilation.  The jacket is form fitting, very comfortable, and doesn’t sound like a trashbag.  I find the little hand warmers annoying, but if you forget your gloves, it’s better than nothing.  It has also survived branch and stick pokes on trail runs.
