The North Face Black Box
The North Face got its start in 1966 as a small shop selling hiking and climbing equipment in San Francisco’s North Beach neighborhood. The mountaineering brand has since expanded its offerings, providing technical gear for all types of outdoor enthusiasts. Sourcing recommendations from athletes, The North Face continues to improve the performance of its specially engineered apparel, constructed with innovative fabrics like ripstop nylon and wind-resistant fleece designed to function in extreme environments. Signature ultralight quilted jackets and waterproof shells for men, outfitted with performance-driven design details, are staples for urban life and long-haul excursions alike.
