This jacket was originally made with fast mountain ascents in mind, providing maximum durability and functionality while being light and offering freedom of movement. It was released back in 1988 under the Climb Light Expedition System, but now returns in its 1994 form which features a number of detailed design touches.
Furthermore, The North Face has reworked this retro jacket with its contemporary FUTURELIGHT fabric technology, making this year’s offering the lightest this jacket has ever been. It returns in five retro-tinged colorways, ranging from signature black and camouflage offerings to bolder “Lake Blue,” “Mr. Pink” and “Jaiden Green” iterations.
Take a look at The North Face’s 1994 Retro Mountain Light jacket in the gallery above. It retails for $2,990 HKD (approx. $385 USD) and can be purchased from The North Face’s Urban Exploration Stores and online.
