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!
Great jacket. Fits well, sleeves weren't overly long. I feel like this fits to size, even with room for a fleece underneath. It didn't seem overly small to me. I wish there was better capabilities to tighten the hood - the elastic strung around the brim doesn't do much in my opinion. Good buy for the money though - I would get this again. I like that the hem comes down a bit in the back - very flattering.
I like these shorts primarily for their built in inner short. They are comfortable, light weight and feel good. It is a smooth nylon type fabric, not woven mesh like swim trunks. The inner short has some compression but not a lot. The front pockets are nice; however, I would like a rear pocket for my wallet. Elastic waist band is comfortable and the draw string adequate.
I would have loved these pants if they actually had a 30" inseam. I ordered a medium in the short length and they are way too long. I measured and the inseam is actually 32" even though the tag and label inside say "short". Boo! I'm 5'2" and 145lbs. The medium fit with a little wiggle room.
Love these pants! I recently wore these camping. They were perfect during the day - very comfortable and not restricting whatsoever. They are just a little thin for nighttime. Loved the green color and the style. Fits perfectly - I am usually an XS/0 and purchased the XS.
Excellent pants. Comfortable and lightweight, easily rolled up in the heat. I will use long underwear for cold weather. Fabric is soft and quick drying but has a nice feel, not like those slick fabrics that feel like they are made from materials not found on earth. They fit well. I bought size 8-Short and am 5'4", 134 pounds, 29 1/2" inseam. The sage green is a good versatile color, subtle, looks good with black. The zipper pocket is perfect for money & credit card. Only drawback: side pockets are not quite big enough for my iPhone 6s but that phone is so heavy I carry it in a fanny pack anyway. Would definitely buy again. Wish they carried slate grey.
