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 a button-up 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.

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!

    This dress is even better than expected. Great fit. The material is thick and seems like it will stand up to many washings without issue. The best feature, in my opinion, is that the straps are wide and you won't need to worry all day about your straps poking out. The fit is true to size - I wear a SM/Med top and a 28 pant, at 5'3 and the length is great. I also ordered in black, no "see through" issue with either material, even with the black fabric having a bit more stretch.
  • Base Camp Lite Flip-Flop Posted: Jul 24, 2016 Reviewer: Jen Hedrick from Geneva Ohio Overall: 5 Stars Comfort: 5 Stars Look: 5 Stars
    Love these flip flops! On my 4th pair, wear them so much I'm constantly wearing them out! Have a gripped solw that's great for walking, we shoot trap and i wear them for that because I don't slip in them when sweaty. Highly recommend these, wish pair more colors were available with the black sole-i have one pair with a pink sole/green thong and the pink gets dirty really fast. Been sticking w/solid black because of that.
  • Litewave Explore Posted: Jul 24, 2016 Reviewer: Elizabeth Guidera from Redding, CT Overall: 5 Stars Comfort: 5 Stars Look: 5 Stars
    I love these shoes. Just hiked about 22 miles through the White Mountains in New Hampshire. The hike was miles of grueling hills over treacherous rocks. It really called for hiking boots, but these shoes served me well. They were comfortable, stable and pretty grippy over the rocks. I usually wear a size 6 or 6 & 1/2. I bought the 6 & 1/2 and they were a good fit

    Great jacket. Comfortable, fits true to size.
  • Class V Shorts Posted: Jul 23, 2016 Reviewer: Maria French from Vermont Overall: 4 Stars Comfort: 5 Stars Look: 4 Stars
    These are great shorts, not too tight, not too flappy. I liked them so much that I ordered them again after a big storm came through and blew mine into a campfire and they melted, after I'd only gotten the chance to wear them a single time.
