The North Face Introduces: The Khumbu Pack
The North Face has just released a colourful new lifestyle collection inspired by the history of the Khumbu region in the Himalayas. Aptly named The Khumbu Pack, the collection is inspired by the bright colours of the prayer flags commonly found in the Himalayan region.
Inspired by the mountains and made for the city, The North Face Khumbu Pack features iconic items such as the Base Camp Duffel, the 1985 Mountain Jacket and the short-sleeved Fine Tee, as well as relative new-comers, such as the Base Camp sliders and Raglan Red Box hoodie.
All items in the collection comes in a variety of bright and vivid colours that make up the Himalayan prayer flags – blue, white, red, green and yellow. Often hung along mountain ridges and peaks in the Himalayas, prayer flags are said to bless the landscape around them and carry prayers on the wind, with the bright colours representing fire, water and earth.
The standout in the new range is the 1985 Mountain Jacket. Packing style without compromising on practicality, the Mountain Jacket is built to protect you from the elements, with a durable water repellent finish to make light work of spring showers. The whole jacket packs into the left sleeve when the sun comes out.
Available in both men’s and women’s styles, The North Face Khumbu Pack is available now over at The North Face Website and in selected The North Face stores, where the Fine T-Shirt is priced at £25 and the Mountain Jacket 1985 is priced at a very reasonable £85.
Earlier this year, The North Face launched a capsule collection themed around a mountain legend: the Fantasy Ridge Jacket.
