Springtime can be a bit tricky to dress for. You’ll toss on a jacket in the morning because it’s chilly, but then by the afternoon, it’s too warm for a jacket and yet too cold to go short-sleeve. The Nike ISPA Inflate Jacket aims to give you the perfect outerwear item to address this issue. The inflatable jacket has an internal bladder system that allows you to pull in air for extra insulation when you need it and less when you don’t. The “I” in ISPA strands for “improvise” — which is exactly what this jacket does. The ISPA Inflate Jacket lets you change on the fly to deal with springtime’s mercurial weather.
When the inner inflation system is empty, the jacket functions like an extra light layer made perfectly for the spring. The material is thin and it helps hold in a small amount of your internal body heat while still being breathable. By inflating the bladder system. you’ll add an additional buffer zone between your skin and the temperature, wind, and precipitation. The inflatable inner layer adds extra insulation and wind-resistance in a moment’s notice. Think of it like a two-pane window. There is a small pocket of air between the two panes of glass to help keep the outside temperature from entering your home. The Nike ISPA Inflate Jacket does exactly this, only for your body.
