The Poncho Via: Style for the Elements

— By: Alison Wu

Featuring new colors for our Spring 2015 Collection, the Poncho Via blends style and performance to create a completely waterproof piece in a graceful yet bold silhouette that protects against the elements. Whether you wear this piece on the beach or riding your bike around town, its distinct style will have heads turning. Made from lightweight yet protective recycled poly and organic cotton, the Poncho Via works in spring, summer, fall and winter.

From Tech Designer, Susan Srofe:

Our Poncho Via embodies how Nau design captures the essence of a quintessential piece like the poncho and transforms it into an innovative, distinctive style. This piece is fully seam sealed, and the hem is dropped in back for full weather protection, while the addition of deep pleats add a graceful, stunning cape-like flow.


With an adjustable waist belt that can be worn two ways, the Poncho Via’s versatile style is ideal for urban exploits and weekend adventures. Cinch the waist for a more figure defining look, or wear the belt on the inside allowing the voluminous back to ride with the wind. Our Oasis and Caviar Reflective styles feature reflective tape on one side of the reversible belt for increased visibility on bike.
