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!

  • Calentito 2 Jacket Posted: Reviewer: from Seattle Overall: 5 Stars Comfort: 5 Stars Look: 4 Stars
    I love the jacket, good in between seasons here in the Pacific NW. The only thing I'm not totally pleased with is the collar. It looks funny on me folded down, but sits higher on my neck then my Apex Bionic. Not a deal breaker for me, just need some getting used to.
  • Etip Gloves Posted: Reviewer: from NYC Overall: 5 Stars Comfort: 5 Stars Look: 5 Stars
    Love these so much that I ordered a second pair for a friend! She loves them too! The pink is nice and feminine, but gloves are still functional and not bulky! I would definitely recommend this pair of gloves to all ladies. I'm 37 and like the fact that I can wear a feminine, non bulky, functional glove

    Love my new Aphrodite pants. They are not baggy and are the perfect length. The material feels really good, is a great color and can''t wait to wear them for lots of different activities. North Face has again proven to have quality products.
  • Shellista II Mid Posted: Reviewer: from Mt Juliet, TN Overall: 5 Stars Comfort: 4 Stars Look: 5 Stars
    A little uncomfortable since they come up to mid calf and do not have much give but are great boots overall. Very cute on!! Definitely serve their purpose!
  • Shellista II Shorty Posted: Reviewer: from Minnesota Overall: 5 Stars Comfort: 5 Stars Look: 5 Stars
    I traded in Snowvalley for these & am so glad I did--these are perfect height and fit. When I first tried them on, they were a little roomy in the toes so I put on a thicker pair of socks over my every day socks and they were snug. I was in 19 degree weather with these and moving around, they were warm! Standing in place for an hour or two, my toes got cold but I took a walk to get the blood flowing and they warmed up again. I will be wearing to work on snowy days and running errands, not for ice fishing or other extreme weather conditions.
