1996 North Face Steep Tech Access
Extremely rare and difficult to find, 1996 Access Steep Tech jacket design by Scot Schmidt. By 1996 high demand products such as jackets and ski suits were made in many factories in Asia. This Access model is a China made model, and is extremely heavy. Features 330D Cordura shell with 500D Cordura reinforced critical areas, 6 outer pockets, stow away hood, real Kevlar shoulders, back vents, powder skirt and more. The quality and craftsmanship of the mid to late 1990s models is truly distinct amongst rival brands. Color way of the model picture above is called "Hunter Green." Access is a rare Steep Tech model, not many were produced, and production only ran from 1994 to 1998. Truly a collector's item if in mint condition, or a work horse if you need it to be, awesome as a motorcycle jacket as well.
