  • Description

    Named after Everest’s imposing neighbour, the North Face's original 90s Nuptse products were the first to use an innovative baffle construction that minimized down shifting, ensuring lasting warmth for the wearer. The 1996 Retro Nuptse Down Vest is a modern reincarnation of the icon. They’ve kept most things the same: the same boxy silhouette; the same shiny ripstop fabric; the same exposed zip and diagonal hand pockets and, of course, the same oversized baffles. The only changes are improvements like switching to 700-fill of responsibly-sourced down and using a water repellent finish. The hood stows in its collar and the whole gilet can be packed down and stowed in its right hand pocket.

    •High fill, Responsible Down Standard (RDS) goose down delivers extreme and consistent warmth in seriously cold weather
    •Inspired by the iconic design lines of our 1996 Nuptse Gilet and featuring the same oversize baffles
    •Original shiny ripstop fabric with DWR finish for added protection
    •Stowable hood packs into collar, and the whole jacket stows in a hand pocket for easy travel
    •Internal zip pocket for your small essentials
    •Bungee cinch at the hem so you can get a precise, comfort fit
    •Exposed two-way front zip
    •Oversize logos on the chest and shoulder
