Outdoor label The North Face relaunched its retro 1996 Nuptse jacket to prepares anyone for the dropping temperatures to come. The outerwear piece is constructed for both mountain and urban life with a boxy shape and original glossy ripstop fabric material. It also boasts the signature oversized baffles and a stowable hood to ensure warmth and dryness when the weather gets harsh. The 1996 Nuptse is a classic down-insulated jacket with adjustable velcro cuff tabs.
The jacket also has an internal zip pocket, a bungee cinch at its hems and branding details across the left chest and at the back of the right shoulder. Notably, the piece is certified to the RDS, which is the Responsible Down Standard by the Control Union, ensuring that its down is not sourced from animals that have been subjected to any unnecessary harm.
