Shortly after dropping a set of duffle bags and daypacks, THE NORTH FACE PURPLE LABEL has unveiled another two brand new bag silhouettes, this time as inspired by past ’90s models. Featured is the Lumber Pack and Nylon Daypack, equipped with a bevy of technical details for optimal utility in outdoor and urban environments.
Both bags come with durable CORDURA fabrics made up of batted nylon and soft cotton in rich colorways of khaki, navy and black. The Lumber Pack sees a wide ovular construction with a thick ripstop belt that can be slung over the shoulders. It also comes with sturdy handlebars, followed by long ballistic straps below that extend over the central opening and end near the base of the front compartment. Tonal “THE NORTH FACE” embroidery is placed at the front, complemented by a tiny PURPLE LABEL patch sewn along the end of the front zipper. As a final note, water bottle holders are placed at each end of the bag, coming with adjustable drawstrings.
The Daypack is also embellished with a slew of ballistic straps; it allows the wearer to compress the bag’s shape for better balance on the go. The rearmost panel and front pouch come in batted nylon, while the bag’s base and upper-middle section incorporate supple cotton materials for textural contrast. Other nuanced details like the branded zipper pulls, mesh lining and central snap-button shoulder straps round up the functional design.
THE NORTH FACE PURPLE LABEL’s Lumber Pack and Daypack are currently available at the nanamica’s website for $161 USD and $212 USD, respectively.
