The North Face is an American outdoor sports company founded in 1966 producing outdoor clothing, footwear, tents, sleeping bags, rucksacks and related equipment. The North Face is named after the coldest, most unforgiving and harshest face of a mountain. Yet it was born on a sun-soaked Californian beach by two friends who shared a passion for climbing and the outdoors. Today, the iconic ‘Half Dome’ logo can be found the world over. North Face waterproof jackets, down vests, sleeping bags, footwear and clothing are all made with the common belief that you should never stop exploring.
