User Review: Nautica Nautex Parka
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $180
- Elegant look
- Nice windbreaker
- Do not expect it to be rain proof - it is not. My sweater was always almost wet in any rain
Purchased the Nautica Competition Nautex yellow jacket for over $180 on sale — LISTED AS 400!!!. It was my favorite one until it was time to wash it.
The polyurethane (?) yellow underlay separated from the clear top membrane. IT LOOKS HORRIBLE! The jacket is ruined — no way I can show up in the marina with that piece of CHEAP garment.
My advice — buy something more durable, if you have a sailboat. There is no other way to wash it in many places than in WATER. And that will delaminate the layers.
I am VERY dissatisfied with the Nautica quality.
