Field Scout’s Precise Coordinates

Each season, Field Scout names its new collection of urbanized outdoor gear after a specific latitude and longitude—a remote spot chosen to inspire and inform the design process of the brand’s aesthetically advanced, always utilitarian garments.

The Google-Map’d images above (click to enlarge) depict an isolated road, rife with switchbacks, nestled in the peaks and valleys of Stelvio National Park in northeast Italy.

While recent Field Scout collections have drawn inspiration from hidden corners of Bhutan and Peru, this season’s wares—crafted in sturdy wools and flannels, with built-in hand-warmers and plenty of pockets for storage—seem well-adapted for exploring the terrain and soaking up the scenery, whether you’re downtown or way, way out of town. (As always, Field Scout’s clothing is made in the USA.)
