Review: Nike Dri-Fit Touch Tailwind Short-Sleeve Running Top

Nike Malaysia launched the latest Nike Free running line which is the Nike Free 5.0+, 4.0 and 3.0 recently. Read about it HERE. We were invited to a media session where we get to try on the latest Nike Free 5.0+ and the Nike Dri-Fit Touch running t-shirt.

The all new Nike Dri-Fit Touch Tailwind running t-shirt is a performance tee that uses Dri-FIT Touch fabric to achieve technically advanced cooling with a comfortable, soft feel. This in turn provides optimal comfort, ventilation and range of motion while on the run.

Nike indeed picked a right time to do the trial - on a hot sunny afternoon.

So, off we went around the Damansara Mutiara housing area for a 2.5km run in the Nike Free 5.0+ and the Nike Dri-Fit Touch running t-shirt.

We sweated buckets. But how did the T-shirt hold up? Read on.

The Nike Tailwind Short-Sleeve V-Neck Men's Running shirt features soft, Dri-Fit Touch sweat-wicking fabric. It is indeed very soft and comfortable on the skin. The mesh fabric allows sweat to evaporate easily and fast thus providing a cool sensation.
Unlike cotton Tee, you won’t get weighed down by a drenched feeling, even after a scorching run in the middle of the afternoon!

For those who like to run in the late evening or night, you will appreciate the reflective elements on the shirt, like on the Swoosh.

Holey moley! Three holes on each side of the underarm for better ventilation. Get that steam out! Heheh!

We love the right back hip pocket which comes with a zip. It’s perfect to store a small MP3 player. You might want to use it to keep small items like money, keys or a pack of energy gel. The zip feature is only available on the T-shirt and not available on singlet top.

Cord management solution to tame those earphone cords. It is reflective as well.

When we got home that evening, we hand washed the T-shirt around 9pm and let it air dry. It was completely dry and ready to be worn on the next morning! We loike!

Overall, we would give a thumb up for the Nike Dri-Fit Touch Tailwind running t-shirt. The most comfortable running t-shirt we have tried on so far. Don't take our word for it, do try it yourself!

Nike Dri-Fit Touch Tailwind is available now for RM159 each at selected Nike retailers.

Note: We did not get the chance to fully experience the Nike Free shoes on a longer run. But do check out fellow runner blogger Jamie’s take on it HERE.
