In catering to the demands of these go-getters, outerwear label Penfield will be organizing a one-of-a-kind scavenger hunt, all done through the vast jungle of the Internet. Titled “Race for the Summit,” the project highlights the ever-functional aspect of the New England classic’s influence in the fashion realm, and a celebration of the label’s original – the Penfield Summit Down Insulated Jacket.
