The latest North Face coat borrows its appearance from the iconic Dolomite sleeping bag. The outerwear piece boasts a dual-colored exterior and ample amount of storage space. The hardware — from the zippers and buttons to the pull tabs and the pockets, provides sleek yet functional detailing for the North Face coat. In addition, the layer is completely packable into a bag.

This particular piece of outerwear is yet another collaborative effort between the adventure-forward company and Junya Watanabe. It is evident that the designer has been heavily interested in the dynamics of utility-forward silhouettes. This can be observed from his ongoing collaboration with The North Face, as well as his militant-style runway presentation of the Spring/Summer 2019 collection.
