THE NORTH FACE OUTDOOR JACKETS: DEVELOPED BY TOP ATHLETES
TNF founder Doug Tompkins had a big goal in 1966 in San Francisco: he founded The North Face with the claim to produce the best outdoor gear in the world. Today, The North Face (under the umbrella of VF Corporation) is the largest outdoor brand in the world. The Californian company produces high-quality outdoor jackets, clothing and equipment for outdoor athletes and adventurers. Under the motto "Never Stop Exploring", weatherproof functional jackets, double jackets and other clothing are designed and manufactured with the emblem of the Half Dome from Yosemite National Park.

THE NORTH FACE FUNCTIONAL JACKETS - WHICH OUTDOOR JACKET IS BEST FOR ME?
The best functional jacket from The North Face for you depends on your situation: On temperatures, weather, region - and on the type and duration of outdoor use.
For a walk, a bike ride, a day trip or warm summer evenings, light softshell jackets and thicker fleece jackets are ideal.
For grey autumn and winter weather, hikes near the Atlantic coast and for very strong winds and heavy rain in general, rain jackets or hardshell jackets from The North Face are probably the best option.
You can wear The North Face fleece pullovers or hoodies all year round - depending on the occasion, whether it's office or leisure, your personal taste and comfort are decisive.
For particularly low temperatures, you should opt for down jackets, winter jackets or insulation jackets from The North Face. This will protect you from the wind and weather even in icy temperatures in the winter landscape, because the thermal insulation of TNF lining technologies is absolutely unique. If one The North Face outdoor jacket is not enough for you, you can of course combine several layers and choose functional underwear made of merino wool or fleece as a base layer.
