The North Face Japan prepares for the winter season with new silhouettes that are made in collaboration with GORE-TEX INFINIUM materials. The Japanese branch is run by Goldwin and this time, the brand updates classic outerwear pieces with minimal looks and strong construction. The waterproof pieces start off with the Q3 bomber jacket and the Denali jacket.
The GORE-TEX INFINIUM materials make up the construction to deliver breathability, lightweight elements, and waterproof coating. Water droplets are expected to simply roll off the surface of the textile for ultra functionality. The Q3 bomber jacket has a waterproof shell that is lined with sweat-wicking nylon materials. The Denali jacket features fleece materials at the interior to keep wearers warm and GORE-TEX at the exterior.
