You make sure your ski jacket is not only eye-catching but also seam-sealed, waterproof, windproof, and durable to keep you protected and warm when Mother Nature is in a less-than-hospitable mood.

Do you demand the same from the jacket you wear off the slopes? You should. And Nau has the one you want—the Wool Patrol Hoody.

With the Wool Patrol Hoody, Nau—a company committed to sustainability, long product life, and streamlined design—has combined classic, old-world style and combined it with modern weatherproof materials and construction in a two-layer waterproof, breathable, high performance wool hoody that’s simple and timeless.

The Patrol Hoody is seam-sealed, with recycled mesh in the armpits for maximum breathability. The woven wool face is paired with a waterproof, breathable laminate, a finish that makes moisture bead up and roll off. There are plenty of pockets inside and out for your hands, your phone, your wallet. And the jacket is trimmed in waxed organic cotton to add style and texture.

Wool is a renewable resource shorn from sheep every year. It biodegrades over time. The recycled polyester used in the Wool Patrol Hoody is crafted from post-consumer PET bottles. It keeps waste out of the landfills and lessens the environmental footprint of this jacket. And the 100% organically grown cotton from which it's made doesn’t use pesticides, herbicides, synthetic fertilizers, or defoliants, keeping pollution out of rivers, streams, and air. The cotton is coated with water-based polyurethane that not only makes it water-resistant, but keeps it soft, breathable, and pliant.

Stick with Gore-Tex for the slopes, but when you’re cruising the outdoor pedestrian mall, swap your crinkly shell for something more suited to the urban conditions. $395,
