My Nike Men’s Explore Running Jacket came in yesterday. I ordered it from Zappos, it was the cheapest price, and with free shipping you got to love that..
Anyway. The only mild issue I had was the color, Zappos site had it more of a yellow than an orange. When I opened it, it was blaze orange. I went with the Hi-Vis color opting for safety over looking cool.

Uses: Running, Hiking , Backpacking, inclement weather, wind breaking
While this will primarily be used for running, I’m also thinking that this will make a great pack coat with day hiking or backpacking. I’m a huge fan of using gear for more than one dedicated sport. So I’ll keep you posted on how it performs.
