Our favorite performance outerwear shop is getting back in business starting tomorrow, just ahead of the rainy season.

We’re talking about Nau, a Portland marque that went briefly out of business this May only to be resuscitated by the like-minded Horny Toad. Their new gear isn’t that much of a break from the old, but you’ll have to get it online instead of in brick-and-mortar outposts, and it’s still the best rain protection we’ve come across.

We don’t expect it to make much of a crossover to the boutique scene, but it’s definitely worth a click or two.
