Nau Asylum Jacket

The waterproof/breathable Asylum Jacket combines clean lines and all-conditions comfort for serious mountain pursuits. Welded seams and a helmet-compatible hood lock out weather, while a soft, brushed interior feels great next to skin.

Performance: The three-layer waterproof, windproof, breathable fabric, with material stretch and breezy torso venting, elevates the alpine utility of this unassuming shell. Stitchless seams, glued-in zippers and a stretch powder skirt show enviable form whether lapping the front of the mountain or setting tracks on the back.

Sustainability: The three-layer recycled polyester fabric was developed in partnership with Teijin, the fabric supplier behind ECOCIRCLE® technology, which weaves stretch fabric from post-consumer and post-industrial polyester waste. Closing the loop, at the end of its long life the Asylum can be recycled once again into polyester fibers for reuse.

Fabric Details: Teijin Ecocircle® technology. Face: 100% recycled polyester in a 3 layer waterproof/breathable laminate featuring a soft, fuzzy back, 4-way stretch and DWR finish to shed snow and repel rain. Backing: 100% polyester. Trim: 100% recycled polyester.
