The North Face

Founded in 1966 by two hiking enthusiasts, the North Face was founded as a small mountaineering retail store selling high-performance climbing and backpacking equipment. Now, more than 40 years after its humble grand opening, The North Face delivers an extensive line of performance apparel, equipment, and footwear. The brand pushes the boundaries of innovation so that you can push the boundaries of exploration, and has become the first choice of the world's most accomplished climbers, mountaineers, extreme skiers, snowboarders, endurance runners and explorers.
