The duo is known for their use of technical fabrics, working with GORE-TEX in Fall/Winter 2019 and PTFE laminate technology in late 2017 on the Denali. This time around, the two come together to release the jacket in turquoise, black and taupe with two more iterations featuring accenting colors, centering on the use of eVent® Nylon Tusser — a breathable yet fully waterproof nylon membrane fabric.
In addition to this, nonnative and WILD THINGS include a 3-layer expanded PTFE laminate “Direct Venting” system to ensure that rain won’t get in but moisture such as sweat can escape, taped seams to keep the jacket completely water-tight, and a PRIMA LOFT®GOLD filling that’s used by the U.S. military to generate optimum insulation levels.
Elsewhere, the new Denali sports a redesigned pattern that changes up the silhouette, heat-retaining DICROS fabric for the lining, and grosgrain tape detailing that further references military gear. Rounding out the range of jackets is the tonal WILD THINGS branding on the chest.
Take a look at the nonnative x WILD THINGS Explorer Puff Jumper Denali in the gallery above, and pick it up now at retailers such as vendor for the pre-tax price of ¥120,000 JPY (approx. $1,110 USD).
