The North Face Women’s 1996 Retro Nuptse Jacket Black Currant

We didn’t just make a puffer. We made the Nuptse. A jacket rooted in the unforgiving nature of mountaineering and immortalized on city streets. Respected for generations, our 1996 Retro Nuptse Jacket retains the confidence and grit to stand alone.
