  • Very good breathable mesh design
  • Good comfort, and feels great against the skin

Quality/Durability
Few have reported the sizing can be a little off, but other than that, this is of good quality and has a nice aesthetic.

Our Criteria for the Best Nike Tank Tops

Comfort

There’s plenty of apparel qualities that can contribute to your comfort while running. When looking for the best Nike tank tops, we kept an eye out for functional features, cozy materials, and design perks that will keep you at your most comfortable on even the most intense runs. We favored tank tops that had the Nike Dri-FIT fabric, a Nike patented polyester microfiber made to wick moisture and keep you dry. Tank tops that had things like mesh ventilation panels, flat seams, cozy material blends, and soft reflective details that won’t rub were also on our priority list.

Fit

A bad fit can make the difference between a great tank top and one that will sit at the bottom of your closet forever. You want to make sure that it is designed for the kind of activity you’re doing, with necklines and armholes cut to allow for plenty of movement while not being too big. Sometimes there are just common manufacturer issues that we made sure to note when customers had the same recurring problem with a particular top. Other times, it’s just about preference. Some people like a close fit for compression and efficient moisture wicking, some like a more relaxed cut for their own comfort. Be aware of sizing charts and customer feedback when searching for the perfect fit.

Quality

Nike is typically a name you can trust when it comes to quality. High-performance material blends, functional designs, and well-made products are all part of the Nike experience. Make sure to look for brands that have similar reliability and reputation or products that are well-received and have high ratings.

Durability

Part of having a quality product is knowing that product will last. You don’t want to have to replace your tank top after just a few runs or cycles in the wash. We looked for good ratings from real life customers on how these tank tops held up over months of use and especially from those returning to purchase the product again after finally wearing their first one out. Good seams, solid construction, and clear care instruction can all help with durability.

Cost

It doesn’t matter how good a tank top is if it comes with an unreasonable price tag. We looked for a range of prices and favored more affordable options. Sometimes it is worth investing a little extra to get a higher quality product, but high-cost does not always mean better so don’t be wary when you see a good deal.

Other Factors to Consider

Pairing with Gear and Other Apparel

If you’re shopping for a tank top and you want to be able to wear it with a base layer or gadgets like a heart rate monitor or a wearable dog leash, keep that in mind while browsing. That may influence the kind of fit or material you want and it’s easier to make the right selection the first time then remember after it arrives in the mail or when you get it home from the store. Some tank tops will also have specifically built-in perks that make them more compatible with other gear or apparel.

Logos and Branding

Some tank tops will be available without any kind of logos, but often with big-name brands like Nike you’ll be a little harder pressed to find something without any branding on it. This can sometimes be a problem if you’re a professional competitor who isn’t allowed to wear specific branding at events or if you want to avoid accidental endorsement. If you plan on wearing your tank top to an event or competition, keep that in mind while shopping.

FAQ

Q. What does the word “Nike” stand for?

A: This question may not help you find the best Nike tank top, but it is a fun piece of trivia! Although the iconic brand nearly went by several other names, Nike is named after a Goddess from the Greek Pantheon. Nike is the winged Goddess of victory who embodies strength and speed. Pretty fitting for a brand favored by runners, right?

Q. Is it better to go with a name brand?

A: Sometimes with big brand names like Nike and adidas, there is a long background of excellence and reliability. Brands like these have gained success for a reason and can offer the promise of quality when you buy one of their products. This isn’t always true, however. Sometimes well-known brands can decline in quality or deliver products that aren’t consistently great, so it’s always best to do your own research and make informed decisions. Basing your purchases on real customer feedback and buyer’s guides like this one is a good place to start.
