Rated4out of5bymcpakfromStylish, warm, poorly designed hoodI love clothing designed by Nau. The lines are generally stylish, the fit is usually not inflated, and they put thought into little details.
This coat fulfills much of this, with the exception of the hood. Firstly, it snaps on and off. No biggie, except that the snaps unsnap really easily! If pull on the hood with a good tug, some of the snaps will come loose. It's not a huge deal and is more annoying. One particular fail with the hood is that it's kind of big and there is no way to make it more snug (as far as I can tell). It blows back anytime I face a head-on wind. I'm pretty disappointed with this, as I generally have to hold my hood in place when I'm walking around on a cold, windy day.
The upside is that it is generally warm enough for Chicago winter temps and it manages to not to make you look like a misshapen blob.
