The North Face has announced the addition of a brand new backpack to its Summit Series collection as well as updates to many of its products.
The jackets and trousers in the range now have an athlete-refined fit as well as new colourways. What’s more, the L5 Jacket and L5 Shell Pants are now available with Gore-Tex waterproofing.
New release, the Summit Series Alpine 50L (pictured), is a lightweight and durable backpack which The North Face says is made for high-alpine athlete expeditions.
Key features of the pack include a top lid that doubles as a rope carry system, a removable waist belt and frame sheet, and a reinforced cover for ice-axe tips. The bag itself is made from Cordura nylon and was built using The North Face’s FuseForm technology.
The Summit Series comprises other items including the Summit L1 Top and L1 Pant, a mid layer called L2 Jacket and the L3 Thermoball insulated jacket.
The collection is available in selected The North Face stores, specialist retailers and online at www.thenorthface.eu
