Following the release of their collaborative Rescue collection at the end of March, Supreme and The North Face are ready to give us a more suitable Spring 2022 collection. This time around, the focus is on Trekking pieces and the functionality of being able to convert outerwear and pants into summer appropriate lengths.
Not everyone that sets out to create zip-off clothing will succeed, it actually is done poorly almost all the time. However, The North Face and Supreme have managed to give us something that will definitely be serviceable not only in the mountains but also in the streets.
The full collection includes a Trekking Convertible Jacket, a short-sleeve tee, hoodie, short-sleeve top, Belted Pant, sweats, Belted Short, Camp Cap, Crusher, Convertible Backpack + Waist Bag, and Sandal.
We’re going to start off with the convertible pieces — which include a jacket, pants, shorts, and the backpack accessory.
The Trekking Convertible Jacket features water resistant recycled nylon and zip-off sleeves at both the elbow and shoulder areas — essentially giving you a shirt-style and vest to rock. The Trekking Belted Pant also is made of water resistant nylon and has the zip-off functions at the knees and thighs. For the Trekking Belted Short, you get the same material construction as the other two but instead of a zipper, there’s a packable pouch. The Trekking Convertible Backpack + Waist Bag name tells you everything you need to know about the accessory.
Other pieces in the collection include the short-sleeve shirt, Soft Bill Camp Cap and Crusher, which are all made water resistant recycled nylon and finished off with embroidered logos. The hoodie, sweats and tee are made from cotton and feature a bandana applique. Rounding out the selection are the sandals, constructed from nylon ripstop with an open mesh upper and lug rubber outsole.
Supreme has opted to go with black, white and a floral pattern for the Trekking Convertible Jacket and matching Trekking Belted Pant. The short-sleeve shirt and Trekking Belted Short are offered in black, white, green and floral. The bandana hoodie, sweats and tee come in black, white and red. Both the Camp Cap and Crusher will arrive in black, white, green and floral as well. Finally, the backpacks and sandals drop in black, white and green.

It’s rare to find The North Face pieces that offer convertible features so this collection is a gem because of that alone. Expect the floral print versions to be the first pieces people go after for personal and resell value since it’s the most different one. As always, good luck to everyone.
