It Took 4 Years To Develop The North Face’s Cutting-Edge Waterproof Parka

Aug 30, 2019

The North Face is, inarguably, one of the biggest names in outdoor gear ever. And to stay on top, they know they have to innovate — and they’ve embraced that fact wholeheartedly. In fact, they’ve just announced a big, impressive new collaboration with SPIBER called the Moon Parka.

Those paying attention may remember that this collaboration happened before in 2016 with another winter coat of the same name. This project is not entirely dissimilar, but some major changes have been made. While the goal of limiting the carbon footprint was still the primary goal, other big strides have been made — like the development of a waterproof and moisture-permeable laminated film used in the shell’s inner layer and a newly-developed “brew protein” for the outer layer. Like it’s predecessor, the coat also features 900 fill power CLEANDOWN, which is water-resistant, moisture permeable, and excellent for heat retention. Only a handful of these parkas are to be made and they’re being auctioned off, so you’ll want to enter the raffle soon if you hope to get your hands on one for the price of $1,400 each.

Purchase: $1,400
