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!

  • Play Hard Tank Top Posted: Jul 27, 2016 Reviewer: Jamie Stoneham from Cincinnati, Ohio Overall: 5 Stars Comfort: 5 Stars Look: 5 Stars
    I really liked this when I first put on the tank top, but then after wearing it one day, the seem on the top broke and unraveled. So, it's not made the best, but the fabric is great for hot days. It doesn't show sweat, is truly lightweight, and wicks moisture away. I just wish that they created the hem on the end of the fabric better. I plan on getting an exchange because I really want this tank top to work, and I'm hoping maybe it was just the one that I received.

  • Half Dome Full Zip Hoodie Posted: Jul 26, 2016 Reviewer: Nora from Northern California Overall: 5 Stars Comfort: 5 Stars Look: 5 Stars
    Love it! It's fuzzy inside and medium in weight. Just what I was looking for for cool summer evenings. The orange color is slightly pinkish, which I love. I like that the zipper is a matching color and is made of plastic. The Medium fits just right for 5'6" height, medium chest, a small would be looking snug.

    I'm a 32 waist so I ordered a medium. When I tried them on they were loose without the belt so I called and had a small sent to me. I've never worn anything small but when I got it two days later I tried it on an it fits. Great customer service. Thank you Zappos.
