About the North Face


The cubicle walls seem to be closing in lately. You've got some vacation time saved up, and the siren song of Mother Nature is calling. Is it time to cross another national park off the list? Maybe do a little rock climbing? Perhaps grab the camera for some more great outdoor pics? Regardless of the activity, preparedness is key and The North Face® has the gear to take you from training in the gym or on the trail to planting your flag at the summit.

Scaling 8,000 meter peaks doesn’t happen overnight! Start building a body that can go the distance with some mountain athletics. Get outdoors and work up a sweat in a VaporWick® tee and FlashDry™ running short. A technical ½-zip wards off the chill during those early morning or late evening training sessions and a cozy fleece jacket gets you home in comfort.

Heading into the backcountry? A great baselayer is a must. Weather can be finicky off the beaten path, so make sure to pack a GORE-TEX® technical shell that can deal with the elements and a stylish knit hat to keep the ol' noggin warm. Can't forget a pair of durable ripstop pants and trail shoes made to tackle the rocky terrain. Grab a daypack for short trips or a large duffel to hold a tent, goose down or ThermoBall™ jacket, waterproof gloves, and all the other miscellaneous gear necessary for extended expeditions.

If you’re less about scaling a sheer mountain face and more about blazing down the mountain on a snowboard or two skis, then a versatile Triclimate® jacket and insulated pant with movement-friendly stretch, protective gaiters, and body-mapped venting will better fit your needs. Grab a pair of articulated gloves to keep those digits toasty and a beanie to protect your dome.

Not looking to conquer any peaks or already crossed them off your bucket list? Toss a couple water bottles into a backpack and enjoy a leisurely hike in The North Face Denali Jacket and convertible pant. If the mood strikes, zip off the legs and dip those toes into a cool stream. Head back into town and straight to a backyard barbeque sporting the same look because the fabrics are not only technical, they’re stylish enough to be worn just about anywhere.

The North Face has versatile jackets, pants, shoes, and accessories for both men and women to meet all of your outerwear needs. Now that you know what gear to get, just turn in a time off request and throw a dart at the map to find out your destination! When it’s time to return to work, you’ll have plenty of stories to tell!

    I absolutely love this backpack! I was looking for a purse substitute. Something sleek and stylish but practical. I use it as a purse/diaper bag it really helps having both hands free with 3 kids. The women's shape is amazing and makes a big difference to a regular backpack. It easily fits my laptop and planner plus a diaper pouch, wallet, change of clothes for the baby and snacks.

    Great fit. Nice and warm. Had trouble with delivery because of carrier- NOT ZAPPOS. As soon as I contacted Zappos they stepped in and the package was there the next day. Awesome customer service as usual!!!

    I bought this jacket because I needed a warm coat to get me through a winter trip to the East coast. This jacket is very warm. I am usually a size Medium or 8 but upsized to a Large so it would not be too tight in the shoulders/chest and be long enough in the arms since my arms are excessively long. The large fits well, although I think the shape of the coat would be more flattering had I stuck with a size Medium, I prioritized comfort over style with no regrets. Pockets are large and there is ample room to store all your items. Coat is very well made - I expect it will last many, many years.

    What a great jacket!! I got this for an Alaska trip. I love the layers and flexibility of this jacket. The inner layer is so soft and cozy underneath. Zipped and paired with the outer layer gives me solid comfort and protection from weather elements. It's also very easy to zip out the inner and just use as a windbreaker or rain jacket, and is still comfortable. This jacket seems really durable. I love the versatility. I got a large, I'm 5'6 and 135 lbs. I probably could have gotten a medium, but I wanted some room to add layers if it gets really cold on the trip. Very satisfied with the quality of this jacket, and can't wait to get out into the world and test it out!
