The North Face. The North Face Summit Series: Get the Look

When it comes to high alpine excursions and exploring mountain peaks in the harshest conditions, The North Face Summit Series is designed for the job. The brand’s experience with technical, rugged and reliable equipment and apparel is evident within each product and eye-popping colours keep wearers visible when visibility declines. 

The North Face knows that life in the mountains is all about being prepared for the worst. The gear you choose to equip yourself with and the layers you choose to wear are all essential to the activity you are pursuing and the elements you may encounter. Weather conditions can change in an instant and itineraries can be altered so while patience, perseverance and gratitude are key, consciousness and preparedness are essential tools that should always be in your back pocket (or backpack).
