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!

    An incredibly comfortable hiking boot right out of the box. Soles have begun to deteriorate after 2 years of heavy use. Only major complaint is lack of traction in loose dirt & scree - needs a more aggressive lug pattern on the sole. Excellent value though.

    I'm graduating from college soon and we aren't allowed to carry purses with us during the ceremony. I will need my phone though to make it easier to find family in the chaos afterwards, so I desperately tried to find a nice dress with pockets. This is perfect! I am 5'5" and 190lbs, 38D chest and I ordered the Large size... it fits perfectly! With a nice cardigan and some heels, it will look perfect for the evening. I ordered an XL as well, but will be exchanging it for another Large in a different color. I love this dress!

    Purchased it as a gift. He needed a jacket for spring/fall. It's true to size and fits very well. Extremely comfortable when it's cold and even when it's not so cold. A great gift.

    Love this jacket. It's warm and comfortable and it looks good. I'm 5'8" 160lbs and the medium fits me well.
  • Reaxion Amp Tank Top Posted: Feb 10, 2016 Reviewer: from Overall: 5 Stars Comfort: 5 Stars Look: 5 Stars
    I really like the fit of this top...as you can see on the model, it has a nice, feminine shape - not boxy. And while it does nip in at the waist, it's not too fitted on me; it's still comfortable. If you have some excess fat around your middle that you're wanting to hide, you might want to avoid this style, or go up 1 or 2 sizes.
