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!
This is only the second hat I have ever owned. I have a smaller head, and often find baseball style caps can look too "trucker-ish" on me. This one doesn't. It's very nice and sleek. My husband said that I looked cute in it. I wore it sailing, and in all the wind, it stayed snuggly on my head. It's also cute and feminine. The back is nice, because it has these cute pearly buttons, whereas some hats have those cheap plastic peg-in-hole things. Super classy cap. It also looks great with the khaki North Face shorts, which I bought as well. These were my first North Face purchases and definitely won't be my last.
I bought these before going to the Porkies. I hiked 22 miles in 2 days with a 35 pound pack and had no blisters or hot spots. Very comfortable, but could have been stiffer in the arch area. Worked great in the mud and nice grip on wet rock. All and all nice shoe.
This is the best pair of swim shorts I have ever worn! Water repelant and durable. And very comfortable! I use them for swimming at the gym 6 days a week and they are amazing! I am also impressed by the customer service at Zappos and how fast the delivery time is.
These are great slippers, but I wouldn't suggest them for outdoor use, the sides are just too low to keep snow, water, or even leaves out.
This is a great fleece jacket. Like other North Face's it is not very long but is true to size. I love the giant hood and there are two inner pockets. A great fall transition piece.
