The North Face is a leading American outdoors company based in California. While most well known for its stylish outerwear, The North Face also makes a full line of clothing, backpacks and bags. The brand's outerwear is designer for use during sports like skiing and snowboarding, climbing and running, but it is also worn by those who never hit the slopes but want to look good out on the streets. In the following, you can learn about some of the best places to find The North Face outerwear for men, and about some of the brand's best jackets for men.
In terms of finding a great deal on The North Face men's jackets, your timing will be the most important factor. If you can pick up a jacket any time between the end of the winter and the summer, there's a great chance you'll be able to save a ton of money on the garment. You can find The North Face items at department stores, outdoor gear retailers like EMS and at the brand's own stores. If you buy from a location other than one of these, however, you must use caution, as The North Face is one of the often counterfeited brands, based primarily on its popularity and on the simplicity of its designs.
Currently, Zappos is a great destination for picking up a new and guaranteed authentic The North Face jacket. The North Face Bomber is one of the brand's most popular options. The Bomber has a DWR moisture repellant finish, an 80g Heatseeker insulation, a full front zipper and multiple pockets. The jacket also has both ribbed hems and cuffs and a taffeta shell. The North Face Elevens Jacket is a good lighter weight option from the brand. The jacket comes in bold neon colors and is a part of The North Face's Summit Series line. The Elevens uses Polartect Power Dry fabric and has a full length zip, two hand pockets, hook and loop cuffs and a drawcord at the hem. The body of the jacket is made of a supple 93% polyester and 7% elastane blend as well. For a slightly more versatile jacket from The North Face, consider the Men's Apex Bionic Jacket, which sells at Zappos for just over $100. This jacket has a soft shell backed with fleece that's designed to effectively keep out the wind. The Bionic uses Apex ClimateBlcok fabric and can be used either on its own as a jacket or worn as a shell over a bulkier item. The jacket has molded cuff tabs, a left Napoleon chest pocket and a hem cinchcord for a custom fit. The The North Face Resolve Jacket is one of the brand's budget rain jackets, as it retails for only $80. This two layer ripstop jacket works mostly as a shell, but it can also be worn on its own on warmer days. The shell is made of HyVent material and is extremely breathable. The jacket also has a brushed collar lining and a stowaway hood for extra versatility.
If you want a slightly edgier look from The North Face, you should make sure to keep the Mack Moto Jacket in mind. The motorcycle inspired jacket has a luminescent high shine nylon shell, a durable water repellant finish and a thin layer of the brand's Heetseeker insulation. The jacket has classically styled snap down collar and cuffs and has a more fitted look than most of the brand's other jackets. For situations in which it isn't particularly cold but its fiercely windy, The North Face provides you with the Windwall Tech Jacket. The jacket has received a 5-10 CFM rating, meaning it is nearly 100% windproof. The Windwall is also fleece lined yet lightweight and has two zip hand pockets, a drawcord hem and a fitted look through the arms. For those seeking a lightweight jacket to wear on a run in the rain, the Hydrogen Jacket may make for a perfect fit. Retailing for $99, the Hydrogen is made of durable ripstop nylon and has a DWR moisture repelling finish.The jacket has a single chest pocket for stashing your keys and cash and is surprisingly machine washable. Lastly, for one of the brand's flashier looks, try out the Men's Diaz Jacket, which uses an ultra lightweight TNF 800 fill down for lots of warmth without the weight. The jacket also employs Pertex 10D nylon ripstop fabric and has a very glossy yet refined look. The Diaz has an alpine fit and two hand pockets. Perhaps the jacket's coolest feature, the Diaz is so easily compressed that it can be stashed inside one of its own pockets, making it eminently packable and a stellar choice for those trying to save space on their hikes.
