Mashing together two garments either net you something really cool or something absolutely questionable. We’ll let you make up your own mind about Nau’s Off-the-Grid Hoodie, which looks like a quilted vest worn over a base hoodie layer, all while coming as a single jacket.
Designed for the colder months, the Frankensteined garment should be warm enough to make for a suitable outerwear all on its own, all while ably serving as a cozy base layer when temperatures drop to intolerable levels. We think it looks badass, apart from saving you the extra trouble if you frequently find yourself layering a vest over a hoodie during colder days.
The Nau Off-the-Grid Hoodie uses Rangygoat wool for the sleeves and hood, with the sleeves sporting an oversized profile to make it look like a regular hoodie. For the body, they use quilted polyester in a trim fit, ensuring it can deal better with strong winds and chilly breezes while making the whole thing look like a two-layer outfit. Nau claims the pairing isn’t just warm and weather-resistant, it’s also fully windproof, ensuring you’re fully protected from the elements.
Features include interior-bound seams, a one-way drawcord for the hood, a DWR-treated zipper with internal wind flap, and a pair of zippered hand pockets. It comes in two colors: lagoon blue and caviar gray.
Available now, the Nau Off-the-Grid Hoodie is priced at $225.
