A tripartite collaboration bringing together the Rocky Mountain experts in rugged utility at Topo Designs, Nanga's ultra premium down expedition gear, and the modern nostalgia of Japanese outdoor lifestyle brand Natal Design.
The collaboration is comprised of two pieces: a Down Tee and a convertible Shoulder Bag.
The Down Tee makes the most of Nanga's manufacturing capabilities within Japan for a beautifully appointed rugged down layer that is at home in a rocking chair, at a tentside bonfire, or on a trail. It packs into a small storage pouch for easy, minimal transport. Natal Design's frog skin camo lining is a subtle nod to the reversible frog skin camo uniforms worn by the US military in the early 1940s, featuring a green jungle frog skin pattern on one side and a beige beach frog skin pattern on the other.
The Shoulder Bag can be worn as a backpack or briefcase with Natal Design's 1000D nylon body and a 400D blaze orange interior pack cloth. Heavy-duty plastic hardware, water bottle pockets, and an interior laptop sleeve mean this is built to be your day-to-day companion for the long haul.
