- The North Face
From sitcoms to beanie babies, the '90s provided us some memorable stuff. That's why The North Face brought back a little '90s style with the Nuptse Duster Down Jacket. The boxy silhouette, overstuffed baffles, and durable shiny face fabric are all reminiscent of the original Nuptse jacket, but the duster down version is longer and has a two way front zipper. As a down jacket, the Nuptse is very compressible and easy to travel with, even in the lengthy style. Pack it into the internal hand pocket and toss it in your suitcase when you're off to a cold weather destination. The hood also packs down and stows in the collar when the weather is more mild and it isn't needed.
