Fresh off the expedition board, The North Face has presented its the new Baltoro collection, an innovative line-up which merges top-tier tech with the handwritten expedition tales of renowned explorer Conrad Anker.

Taking its name from the Baltoro Glacier, the brand's new line has been re-conceptualised to complement the everyday explorer with mountaineering weaved into its designs. Located in the Karakoram Range, the challenging terrain is familiar to Anker and other experienced climbers.

Drawing inspiration from key milestones in exploration history, the overall collection showcases distinctive designs and silhouettes. Among them is the Himalayan Jacket, Heavyweight Relaxed Fit Sweatpants, and the Glenclyffe low shoes, each adorned with a striking mountain print. What sets the Baltoro collection apart is its incorporation of Anker's hand-drawn expedition notes, granting a glimpse into his strategic approaches to conquering challenging expeditions.

Noteworthy design elements also include the fusion of classic silhouettes with mountainous accents, creating a personal touch to the overall range.

You can cop the ‘Baltoro’ collection on Nov. 28 from and in select The North Face stores.
