I have become OBSESSED with Nike Dry Knit Tanks and Tees. I first did a review of the Nike Dry Knit and then this week I have gone back in hunt for more. The obsession started after trying them on but I was especially obsessed with getting the rainbow colorway you see below which was online in one size, but not available at the Nike store. I also hadn’t tried on the short sleeve version yet because I was worried it would be too clingy. I hit the jackpot this week when I found the rainbow in a tank and a tee, on sale at SportCheck. If you are Canadian, check out SportCheck this week because they have an addition discount on purchases over 150 (24 off) or 300 (75 off). Such a great time to stock up on sneakers as well if you’ve been meaning to get a pair, or stuff for your kids. I purchased all of my items on sale but honestly I would love them at full price.
I first hit the Nike store and tried on the knit tee for the first time in this gorgeous teal blue. I was so tempted to get it but it was full price and I decided to wait on it. I asked the sales associate how often they get new product and she told me they get ‘new season’ items every two months, but they get bits and pieces of items every day. She said in July these tanks and tees will be gone except for one or two neutrals, and they will have their cold weather run gear in – and they are expecting a lot of colors for fall/winter. The Nike website has a much larger inventory so the product they have there (and colorways) are older seasons, which is why the Nike store didn’t have the rainbow one I wanted. This is a size L and I’m very happy with the fit of it. It is similar to a swiftly tech SS, but the material is thicker and more flattering, yet it’s much softer and cooler. I love that I don’t have to size up in these because they are so thin that they expose every lump and bump. You definitely do not need washboard abs for this top. I have a hard time wearing swiftly tanks or tees in hot weather because they seem to trap heat – but this knit for some reason doesn’t even though it’s thicker. I also feel like this top is much less prone to snagging.
I’ve put this one on my Nike wish list and the moment it’s on sale, I will be snatching it up.
After leaving the store I decided I would just go ahead and order the rainbow colorway I wanted since there was one size left online. As soon as I ordered I went in to the Sport Check flag ship store and there it was, on sale no less. I quickly called Nike and explained what happened and they where happy to cancel the order for me. The Sportcheck had the tank and the tee shirt, as well as several other colorways. This one is by far my favourite though. I love that all of these breeze knits are marled multi color knits. They are so vibrant in person!
I wasn’t planning on getting another knit but I really loved this marled blue one. It has light sky blue mixed in with a pretty darker blue.
My new collection. These have completely replaced CRB’s for me, which is making a huge statement. According to the sales associate I spoke to, this is a repeating style for Nike but this years version is a new cut. The double strap detailing is new, and they are more contoured and long.

Another item I tried on and loved was this half zip. It’s incredibly soft, like old heathered RULU circa 2014. I loved this heathered menthol color as soon as I saw it so I snatched it up. There where other pretty colors like a heathered peach and a heathered light blue, and the Nike store had a really pretty heathered purple and heathered maroon. I loved this color though and I love that I got it for $36. I would not have otherwise purchased a full on winter top at full price at the beginning of summer. It’s not as detailed with feminine features like, the Inspire Pullover I have which has contrasted mesh, cuffins, cute reflective sayings on the cuffs, rushing at the neck etc. etc. but this is a nice streamlined feminine cut in an awesome color, and the sleeves and torso are nice and long. The top lengths where always an issue with me over at Nike. I used to find their tops way too short on me, but they seemed to have really updated the fit.
