Forty Years of Exploration and Innovation

They are named for the most unforgiving, coldest side of a mountain. In the Himalayas, they have helped explorers reach the most unfathomable heights. But on a beach, ironically, the North Face legend begins. At an altitude of only 150 feet above sea level, more precisely San Francisco's North Beach neighborhood. It was here in 1966 that two hiking enthusiasts founded a small mountaineering retail store and resolved to follow their passions.

A retailer of high performance backpacking and climbing equipment, soon thereafter that little shop became known as The North Face. The North Face, in 1968, began designing and manufacturing its own brand of technical mountaineering equipment and apparel, and moved to the other side of San Francisco Bay, to the unbridled possibilities of the Berkeley area.

The North Face brand, through the 1970s, began sponsoring expeditions to some of the most far flung, still largely untouched corners of the world and cherished a following amongst avid outdoor athletes. This constantly reinforces The North Face mantra, Never Stop Exploring™ and launched a proud tradition which continues in full force today.

Adding extreme skiwear to the product offering, by the early 1980s, The North Face was taking exploration to the outer limits of the ski world. They laid the groundwork for today's free spirited snowsports athletes; these were the days of mohawks, hair dye, neons, and pastels. The North Face became the only supplier in the United States to offer a comprehensive collection of high performance tents, backpacks, sleeping bags, skiwear and outerwear by the end of the decade.

During the 1990s, The North Face further broadened the outdoor world it helps athletes to explore which ushered in an era. An innovative collection designed to provide outdoor enthusiasts, trail runners, hikers, backpackers, and rock climbers with the ultimate function and fit, the decade saw their debut in the sportswear market with the launch of Tekware™.

On big walls, high country trails, and ultramarathon courses, The North Face half dome logo began to appear with greater regularity. And, The North Face launched its own line of trail running and trekking shoes to ultimately address the head to toe needs of those always striving for the next horizon, as the calendar clicked toward a new millennium.

The North Face delivers an extensive line of performance footwear, equipment, and apparel, today, over forty years after its humble grand opening. So that you can push the boundaries of exploration, they push the boundaries of innovation.

Of the world's most accomplished explorers, endurance runners, snowboarders, extreme skiers, mountaineers, and climbers, they remain deeply proud to be the first choice.

There's no telling what the next forty years hold for them. There is one bedrock certainty, however: So that you can push your limits outdoors, the North Face will maintain an unwavering commitment to pushing the limits of design. Never Stop Exploring!
