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!

  • Schenley Hoodie Posted: Reviewer: from Connecticut Overall: 5 Stars Comfort: 5 Stars Look: 5 Stars
    I ordered the Dark Grey Heather TNF Schenley Hoodie. It looked good online and even better when it got to my house and first put it on. Very soft. I mean, very soft! The inside is lined with this short soft fur type of material. You can see it if you zoom into the last picture of the Urban Navy Heather, right up on the inside where the jacket meets the hoodie. It's subtle. I am 6'1, 210 pounds, 34 waist, 40-42 chest with an athletic build and a shoe size of 11. I like my hoodies to conform to my body without it being too tight. This one fits me just right. Hope this helps!
  • Millerton Jacket Posted: Reviewer: Overall: 5 Stars Comfort: 5 Stars Look: 5 Stars
    I purchased the "Worn Blue Texture." I was enamored with the jacket from the picture online and was even happier with it when it arrived. I'm a size large in TNF and decided to gamble and order the large instead of sizing down like the reviews suggested. It worked out perfectly. It fit me flawlessly. I'm 6'1, 210 pounds, 42 chest, 34 waist with an athletic build and a size 11 shoes. I like my jackets to fit right in the middle. Not too baggy and not too tight. I had no issue with the range of motion in it. I hope this helps the next person.
  • Hedgehog Fastpack GTX® Posted: Reviewer: from Redding, CA Overall: 3 Stars Comfort: 5 Stars Look: 5 Stars
    These shoes have great support to start with but it is lost after 6-7 months. For the price I would like at least a year from these shoes.

  • ThermoBall? Hooded Parka Posted: Reviewer: Overall: 5 Stars Comfort: 5 Stars Look: 5 Stars
    Not too bulky but still warm enough for Alaskan winters. The color is a modern neutral and very stylish. Great fit, great look, great coat!
