The North Face

The North Face began in 1966, when two hiking enthusiasts opened a small mountaineering store in San Francisco. Two years later, the company started designing and manufacturing its own brand of technical mountaineering apparel and equipment. From the beginning they committed to serving all explorers – and to helping conserve our natural wild lands.
