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 is the second pair I bought, this time in stone grey. My husband just loves them. They fit like they are made for him. Great pants for motorcycling too, as they are water repellent. Very happy with purchase!
  • Heartwood Dress Posted: Jun 28, 2016 Reviewer: from Texas Overall: 4 Stars Comfort: 5 Stars Look: 5 Stars
    I sized down as recommended by other reviewers and am glad I did - the chest on this dress is quite large. I sewed it closed a bit and that helps. The dress is still flattering and comfy, so I'm keeping it.

    These sandals are well made and fit well. I have had some problems with other brands being too narrow but these fit well.

    These flip-flops are amazing! Originally I got these only for walking around pool & beach, as I wanted something light, compact, and water friendly without compromising on too much quality. I ended up wearing them throughout my whole vacation in the tropics wherever it was by the pool or long walks around the city or light forest trails. They are very comfortable, the straps hugs you nicely including the toe strap. Even after long walking I had no blisters anywhere of any kinds - that is usually a huge plus for me. Bottom cushion added nice comfort. I'd definitely recommend these. Size runs exactly to the end of heel, I'm 8 and got 8 though would have gotten half size up if available as I like just that little extra tiny space in the end when it comes to flip-flops. The blue colored ones are very pretty.
  • ThermoBall™ Full Zip Jacket Posted: Jun 27, 2016 Reviewer: Kristen from Los Angeles Overall: 5 Stars Comfort: 5 Stars Look: 5 Stars
    I bought this jacket for a backpacking trip to the Eastern Sierras. It is very light and super easy to pack; you can actually pack it up into the pocket for easy storage. I get cold very easily and this kept me warm in 30-40 degree temps. The pockets are roomy too. I haven't washed it yet and haven't had it more than a month, so I can't say how it holds up, but I'm a fan so far.
