    Perfect for bike-commuting to work

    This was my first Nau purchase, though I have been looking for the perfect wind/water-resistant bike-to-work coat for quite some time, and have tried a few other coats from Uniqlo, Calvin Klein and Levis. I'm 5' 8" 135 lbs. and wear an M (keeping some space to layer underneath).

    Just to confirm the previous reviews: the arms do run long. But this lets me tighten the sleeves around my gloves while biking to stop the cold wind from seeping in! The rest of the coat fits exceptionally well and does not constrain body movement (experience from short jogs and daily bike-commuting). Details like the "center cut" at the back, removable hood and convertible collar make this a perfect wear-to-work coat, and the inside fabric makes it comfortable enough to wear throughout the day without that strange sticky/suffocating feeling that most water-resistant coats have. 5 stars for style!

    I had a chance to test out its wind and water-resistance while biking through a moderate downpour at 45F for 30 minutes, and am happy to report that I stayed warm and bone dry, without breaking a sweat! I hope to see similar results for longer/harder downpours and colder/windier days. The coat also dried quickly (within 30 minutes). Highly appreciate the water/wind-resistance, breathability and unconstrained movement this coat provides. This was most important for me, so 5 stars for performance!

    The hood is a bit tight and constrains neck movement like most other raincoat hoods, so -1 "fit" star for that; though it does block wind effectively.

    Good with one query

    Very nice light trench coat. The query is with the cuffs. There is no "snap tab." There is a few inches of tab plus loops; I cannot figure out how to stop the tabs from pulling out and flapping around.

    Good not Great.

    The tech is great as always with NAU.
    Less fitted than I'd like and the arms are a bit too long (I'm 6' and 165 lbs) for medium.
    Also, the texture to the grey color is subtle but it ended up being too much for me.

    I travel with their old blazer for work all the time and wanted to compliment with a "rain coat".

    I use the quintessentshell trench for 3 seasons (all but winter) commuting in Chicago - it has withstood heavy rainfall with ease and looks sharp while doing it! It is a nice, trim fit (though allows for layering a suit beneath) and a good color that goes with most things. My one complaint is that the hood could be a bit deeper - sometimes some rain will fall off the hood into my face, and if it had a brim only an inch or two longer that would not be the case, but that is a minor issue. Overall, the trench is excellent and purchase I'd make again in a heartbeat.
