Fashion designer Junya Watanabe collaborated with The North Face on the 'Trail Pack Customized Jacket,' which combines the form of a backpack and jacket into one sleek, easy-to-wear form. The new collaboration builds upon the style of the Terra 65 backpack-inspired jacket that previously appeared a Spring/Summer 2018 collaboration.

The Trail Pack Customized Jacket takes the form of a full nylon parka, which is made of a slightly puffier material than the previous iteration of the jacket. The stylish design boasts an achromatic scheme with high-performance features for outdoor exploration, such as reflector stripe panels on certain parts of the garment.

The collaborative Junya Watanabe x The North Face designer mountain jacket is now available online, as well as through select stockists in Japan, for a price of $1,830.
