Outdoor lifestyle brand Topo Designs, Japanese Outdoor brand Nanga and Japanese design house Natal Design are proud to announce the launch of their first tri-collaboration, a smashup of Rocky Mountain and Japanese outdoor culture. We love it when good things come together.
Topo Designs’ Co-Founder, Jedd Rose, explains, “It’s no secret that we are fairly obsessed with Japanese culture and design here at Topo. So when we discovered the Japanese brands Nanga and Natal, we were instantly hooked. We were amazed by their ability to combine Japanese craftsmanship, outdoor technology and trend-relevant design into an elegant package. Over the past year we’ve been lucky enough to get to know their talented team and work on this amazing project together. For us, it’s been a great way to infuse our favorite aspects of both Japanese and American cultures, design and manufacturing.”
The Topo Designs x Nanga x Natal Design Down T-Shirt features a vibrant take on Nanga’s signature Down T-Shirt. This Fall-ready tee has a nylon micro ripstop outer layer with a camouflage printed interior layer. It’s built with Ultra-Dry Down™ fill and can be stuffed into the hand pocket for compressed carrying. Two front chest pockets and two side hand pockets provide a spot to stash your phone, accessories, keys and more. This limited run Down T-Shirt is made in Japan and retails for $229.
The collab’s Topo Designs x Nanga x Natal Design Rover Shoulder Pack incorporates Natal 1000D outer camouflage nylon with a 400D blaze orange interior pack cloth.

Natal Designs’, Shinsuke Gotoh, states, “The products made by Topo Designs and the products we make have a great affinity, and since we both have factory backgrounds in each country, we hit it off and decided to make collaborative products by taking advantage of each other’s strengths. We are proud that we have created products that people all over the world, including the United States and Japan, would love.”
