When it comes to hiking and backpacking, our design philosophy emphasizes function - minimizing weight while maximizing movement, wicking, UV protection and durability. Stretch materials and articulated construction allow unrestricted movement in high-performance pursuits, and the use of lightweight textiles reduces the traveler's overall load. Durability is enhanced with abrasion-resistant fabrics and reinforced stitching for extra long life, and calculated construction reduces pressure points when wearing a pack. Wicking fabrics dissipate moisture, keeping the skin dry, and roll-up collars and carefully chosen materials and weaves provide uncompromising UV protection. Technical innovation is even embedded in the fibers at the microscopic level, such as minerals that promote quick drying and neutralize odor-causing bacteria.
Travel has its own set of requirements: UV protection, mobility, breathability, packability, convenience and security. To that end The North Face Sportswear collection uses breathable, moisture-wicking stretch fabrics to ensure our travelers remain comfortable for the long haul. Our gear comes with extensive security pockets designed for passports, maps and accessories, and some of our apparel is reversible and convertible for added versatility on your extended trips. Additionally features wrinkle-free, easily packable apparel that requires as little maintenance as possible, ensuring a traveler's wardrobe that wears well from the peak to the pub right out of the bag.
