The icons of exploration…

Born way back in 1966, The North Face has served the needs of expeditions in the harshest regions in the world. And a few of the items have become icons … taking on lives of their own. Harnessing cutting-edge technology, innovative design and athlete insights, they were revolutionary. Now, they are iconic, worn and used everywhere from city streets to mountain tops. These include the Himalayan Parka – this ultra-warm parka became the gold standard in high-altitude climbing and cold-weather survival. The Mountain Jacket – worn by the first American team to scale the six classic north faces of the Alps in a single season. The Nuptse – one mile southwest of Everest, five miles up and bitterly cold, this jacket named after the Nuptse summit is famed for its game-changing warmth. The Denali – which made its debut on the backs of Todd Skinner and Paul Piana during their historic, 30-day free climb of Yosemite’s Salathé Wall, where it set a new standard for technical fleece. And The Duffel – if there could be just one bag to symbolise epic adventures, it’d be this. Made of burly fabrics, and built to be transported by porters, yaks and camels, these hard-wearing gear totes journey everywhere from expedition base camps to urban metropolises.
All of these iconic items, plus so many more desirable garments for adventure or city wear, can be found on www.thenorthface.co.za

We’re giving away a Base Camp Duffel Bag worth R3599 … tough and practical, with loads of thought-through features – think zipped-end pocket for dirty shoes and wet clothes, mesh pockets, detachable adjustable ergonomic shoulder straps. Use a duffel when in transit, or a backpack when you’re on the move. In a nutshell, it’s an explorer’s best friend.
