Nau Spring Outerwear: Innovative Transitional Pieces to Up Your Outerwear Game

— By: The Team at Nau

Oh Hey, Spring.

It’s no longer cold enough for insulation, but you still need to protect yourself from spring’s unpredictable bouts of rain and wind. The solutions to this weather conundrum are to wear lighter layers that you can toss on when the elements hit but also be able to wrap around your waist or drape over your shoulders when the sun makes an appearance.

We know good transitional pieces can be hard to find—but you’ll want to keep these innovative, sustainable picks, ahead, at the front of your closet.

Men’s Sequenchshell Waterproof Jacket in Cedar


Our new Sequenchshell waterproof breathable shell collection was designed with performance and style in mind. We cut fabric weight by almost 25%, making it lighter and more packable for travel while keeping the breathability and water-resistant performance. A touch of 2-way mechanical stretch provides increased comfort for movement. It’s a new take on the traditional ripstop shell.

Men’s Introvert Jacket in Loden


Taking inspiration from past Introvert styles, we developed a durable organic cotton and nylon fabric reminiscent of classic workwear but with a sueded face for added softness. The dense fabric construction and added water repellency provide all-around weather resistance in windy and/or wet conditions.

Women’s Slight Wind Jacket in Jade


Our Slight series gets a fabric update while maintaining its positioning as our lightest performance outer layer. We modified the construction to include a functional recycled polyester yarn that provides slight 2-way mechanical stretch. Stretch that is longlasting and comfortable bringing added functionality to the water repellent, lightweight and packable outer layer.

Women’s Baermosa Jacket in Cape


This season we are proud to feature a collaborative capsule for spring/summer ’19 that features the first cooperative work between Nau’s design teams in Portland, Oregon, and Seoul, Korea. The result is East meets West collaboration that is a nod to the future of international, sustainable fashion. The Baermosa is stylish workaday wear that’s built to shine in heavy weather, by fortifying the 100% linen design with a lightweight rubber coating to keep the elements at bay.
