The North Face

Founded in 1966 by the ecologist entrepreneur Douglas Tompkins, The North Face is a worldwide famous outdoor brand that manufactures mountain clothing, winter jackets and casual apparel. The brand managed to bring streetwear and outdoor closer through some signature garments, originally conceived for outdoor activities but turned into urban staples, such as The North Face Nuptse, a thermal insulated puffer, and The North Face Denali and Mountain jackets. Entering the late '80s, bright colors and all-over graphics of skiing clothing spreaded through streets, expressing the will to express ideas of an entire generation. The North Face gave the crowds an alternative to its successful performance series with a lifestyle line, featuring heaps of The North Face jackets and sweatshirts specifically manufactured for urban application. The half-dome-shaped made the bang with the new millennium, turning into a real streetwear staple with new tech introductions and premium collaborations - casual and technical can live together. The synthetic alternative to down jackets - dubbed ThermoBall™ - stands as the the perfect example of how TNF has always been able to pair performance and sustainability: its game-changing insulation system is made of small PrimaLoft® fiber flakes that hold heat while staying lightweight and nimble. The North Face Nuptse is by far the most significant jacket of the brand: lined with premium Goose Down Fill feathers of different density, it shines for a superior thermal insulation - featherweight, but incredibly warm. Many parkas, windbreakers and anorak jackets are equipped with special GORE-TEX® coverings: those waterproof hardshells remain breathable and cozy, protecting from cold due to an external layer that repels rain and water. Anyway, you shouldn't overlook The North Face sweatshirts or tees, including a range of fleeces and sherpa sweatshirts that range from urban-inspired TNF Denali to plain logo garments.

How to wash a North Face jacket

In short, the type of washing depends on the materials of your jacket. If you’re wearing a Denali or any other fleece the treatments should be more careful, while Mountain jackets are devised to be washed without much care. Those North Face jackets are made of FutureLight®, a breathable and featherweight membrane patented by North Face. In summary, we are talking of a breakthrough waterproof texture which uses the nano-spinning technology to repel water and let water vapor bleed off. If you’re dealing with puffers or other jackets you should use another approach, and the same goes for anoraks or windbreakers: check out the label stitched on your garment to find all the answers.

How many types of North Face jackets are there?

The American brand mainly manufactures winter outerwear, waterproof shells, light jackets, pile fleeces, down vests, parka and anorak styles. That said, the brand’s most famous jacket remains The North Face Nuptse, a quilted puffer with goose feathers lining. There are two versions of this outdoor jacket: the Nuptse 1992 and the Nuptse 1996, which stands out as a more urban makeup featuring a slim fit. Along with Nuptse, The North Face is highly coveted also thanks to its sherpa jackets and pile fleeces. The North Face Denali, for instance, is a series of Polartec tops that can be used under a waterproof mountain jacket or over a hoodie, built using a high percentage of recycled textures. This eco-friendly approach also applies to down parkas with DWR treatment, windproof jackets provided with Dryvent technology, and on a wide array of hardshells with heat-sealed finishes.
