Almost every other piece of apparel comes in a down or insulated version- boots, pants, shirts, jackets and gloves- so why not the humble scarf? To give you that extra bit of luxurious warmth, both Patagonia and Nau feature an insulated or down scarf in their lineup for this winter season.
The down scarf from Nau is made from a combination of high-grade 650-fill down and lightweight, recycled polyester shell fabric. A DWR surface finish helps to shed any light rain or snow that hits while you are enjoying the outdoors.
The Nau down scarf is long enough to tie in your normal style and packs down into one of the two hidden zippered stash pockets at each end. The pockets can also serve to keep your hands warm while wearing the scarf or to keep your glasses and goggles safe in your luggage.
The Nau down scarf comes in three colors and retails for $65.
Patagonia's Nano Puff Scarf features the same recycled polyester shell fabric and highly stuffable quilted layer of 100-g PrimaLoft One as their fabulous Nano Puff jackets. The insulated scarf has a pass-through slit at one end which facilitates multiple creative wearability options.
The Nano Puff Scarf comes in silver or black and retails for $49. Now bring on the snow!
