Durable Water Repellant
DWR (Durable Water Repellent) is a coating that is applied to fabrics which makes them water-resistant, or hydrophobic. It's cute to think of a fabric as being afraid of water. Now if only they could make a bearphobic coating. A DWR finish doesn't interfere with breathability, which makes it perfect for adverse conditions in the backcountry.

Nau never disappoints...I've been a big fan of Nau (and Moosejaw, of course) for a while, and Nau never disappoints. I've probably 20 pieces from Nau, and have always had my eye on this jacket. Well, the second iteration of this jacket/blazer adds some intriguing details, so I had to have it. The attention to detail is always high with Nau, and that trend continues with the Nau Vice Blazer II. I ordered a Large, but was sent an XL. This makes the sleeves a tad bit too long, but with two layers underneath, the sleeves are the perfect length.

On PointI bought this after having loved the original Vice jacket. They made nice updates throughout as well as giving it a distinct look. Fit is on point, as all their stuff I own - almost like it was tailored for me. Too bad it's been discontinued. Get 'em while ya can!
