Known for combining innovative technology, clean lines and refined silhouettes, Descente ALLTERRAIN is the sportswear line from the Japanese parent label, Descente, which first launched in 2012. Prizing functionality over everything, the brand operates under the mantra ‘form follows function’, which they decided to put to the test in their latest project.
Partnering with Dreaded Path Creative Studio to highlight the key pieces from its AW21 collection, the pieces were put to work on a hike through Scotland. Navigating the Pentland Hills surrounding Edinburgh, Dreaded Path trekked up the hills and through the woodlands and torrential rainfall – truly testing the capabilities of the garms.
There were some clear highlights from the project- the Mizusawa down jacket handled the conditions with ease, in part thanks to its unique Parahood system that prevents snow or water from pooling around the neck, which came in handy here.
Elsewhere, the Fusionknit hybrid hoodie’s in-built water pressure resistance meant it kept the Dreaded Path crew dry, even throughout a downpour. Booking a hike already? Cop the pieces on their website.
