    Just saw a new type of wristband from Nike, 88% Polyester,12% Elasthan !
    Are they around since a long time, or brand new ???

    A quick google search has come up with a name for these: Nike Performance Graphic Doublewide Wristband. I found them in a german nike fall 2013 catalogue link. It says they are 5 inches long, they do look quite nice.

    If they're mostly polyester I wonder how absorbent they are - and they're expensive!

    Maybe just one way for NIKE to get rid of expensive cotton and double the price based on "new" design features (tapering)?

    They appear to be made from dri-fit material, not what you want when you need to wipe your face. But, it is nice to see a nike product without the 'swoosh'.

    Thanks Tiffani.

    I also wonder how they can absorb sweat with this material !
    And I'm not fond of the full "NIKE" logo.

    I have not used them myself, but they're supposed to work just like a Dri-Fit or similar material shirt would work. They're about the same weight fabric.
