The outdoor and high fashion worlds collided with the creation of the Terra 65, a jacket from The North Face, designer Junya Watanabe, and Japanese fashion label Comme des Garcons.

The jacket is made with three-layer Gore-Tex Windstopper fabrics with an outer shell in a layering system to provide extra warmth.

There are several pockets, but the real standout storage is the integrated backpack. The daypack-sized bag is sewn directly on to the back of the jacket.
