Minimalistic, clean style and city/outdoors' functionality has always NAU's philosophy.
While other performance brands we cover make the effort to use eco-friendly fabrics to conjure up fashionable performance pieces that are urban savvy and trail tough----NAU-out of Portland ---just has continued down that paved road/rugged trail since forever.
We think this is the year they get on the retail map beyond the usual outdoor brands...
There are several new pieces and carry throughs from other seasons like the bestselling Shroud of Purrin jackets/trenches (new-hoody version) ... and Refugio jackets in new tones.

|under arm vents|
|center back with snap closures-can open for when sitting down on bike|
As always-the functional details that also serve as modern design elements-asymetrical buttoned seams, snap closes that add edge, curved and slim fits that flatter---are what set Nau apart...and pricewise-we think the items are really well valued---as these separates are keepers.
