- Q & A
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Size Bought: L
I am endlessly confused by Nau's sizing. I generally wear an XL in most brands, but find that I am sometimes wearing a Medium in Nau and other times the Nau Large is too small. So perplexed.
I tried this one in a Large and the fit was fine as a fitted pullover. I was hoping it would be a little oversized for that cozy comfort so ultimately decided to return it. But it's generally a sweet hoody with some really nice details (pleats and pockets), and a fabric quality felt great, and a perfect weight for fall.
Great technical sweater!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
This hoody surprised me in so many ways!
I got a Medium, even though I usually wear a S or XS-- just because I like my hoodies to be big and comfy and I am rather large chested, so the bigger the better. However, this hoody is designed for women... meaning, there are built in pleats for the chest! I was so surprised and kind-of upset because I totally could've gotten a smaller size. This is designed as a semi-fitted sweatshirt, so I would recommend getting your true size.
- Pocket: The BEST thing about this hoody is that the Kangaroo Pocket is designed so if you put something in there, and go hiking where you may have to get over some rocks... its not going to fall out! The sides are sewn up, but still perfectly designed so that you fit your hands in there just the same as before :)
- Neck: The neck is a high turtle, but soft... so you don't get a draft when your hood is on or off, its genius! I can't believe how much I have missed by not having all my sweatshirts designed this way!
- Fabric: Its made from Cotton and Tencel (really cool fact: its from eucalyptus trees!), which makes it feel like you are walking around in a cloud. The fabric is so light and airy and just SOFT, and it also dries really fast.
