There are mesh inserts strategically placed throughout the jacket, in the lower body, arms, and upper back, to ensure maximum airflow. In addition to the ventilation this jacket offers, the Under Armour Run True Jacket is made out of sweat-wicking materials to make sure that when you sweat it rolls right off the jacket so you do not become drenched in your own sweat.
