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!
I purchased this for skiing purpose. It's very comfortable and stylish; however, the finger tips gets cold easily. I wish the description tells more accurately about its purpose. I ended up using them when I drive to grab the steering wheel. Ideal for daily use, but not the best for skiing or other winter sports activities--I might just get mittens instead.
These are stylish boots that will keep you warm in the winter. I really like them and I think they look much better than the typical winter boots that I see other people wearing.
So warm and cozy even in the brutal Minnesota winters. The mittens are lined with fleece, so these babies are W-A-R-M. The cable knit outside make them so cute and the gray color goes with everything. Would highly recommend.
I really liked the pants. I ordered them for a beach vacation and they would have been perfect if they had fit. I am almost 5' 5" and weigh 168 (eek!, need to lose weight). I have short legs, a long rise, and a bubble butt. I am a size 10 or 12 normally in pants. I ordered the 10 and they were too tight. I could button them, but think my butt caused them to pull at the pockets. The length was perfect for my short legs. I had to return them because I needed the 12 but would definitely recommend them.
I love this skirt! The material is so soft and the grey color is a nice medium, not too dark, not too light. I am almost 5' 5" and weigh 168 lbs. I have short legs and a longer torso. I wear a size 10 or 12 in pants depending on the brand. I ordered a large and it fit great. I have put on a lot of weight in the last two years and was concerned this skirt would show the bulges around my bum and tummy. You couldn't see bulges around my bum, the material was pretty good about hiding that. The material isn't thick, but it isn't thin like the "slub" material. I just folded the waist down and it helped hide my tummy (well it made me feel like it hid my tummy). I wore it with causal sandals on my beach vacation, but with dressier sandals and a nicer shirt you could dress it up a bit for work. I am going to a couple more in different colors.
