It is tough enough for aggressive workouts that will help you go big outdoors. Learn about the products and how the gear separates itself from other training apparel.


Here’s what The North Face Mountain Athletics Product Manager, Brigham Pierce has to say about the principles of the Mountain Athletics collection:

Durability – When people think of The North Face, they think of words like: quality, protection and dependability. As we design each season, we look for opportunities to create product that withstands the extremes you put your body through when training.

Unrestricted – Have you seen what the men and women are doing in these gyms? It’s important that we have an intentional approach to engineering our fit and designs that enhance mobility, comfort and full range of motion. 

Progressive – Our designers are great at taking what is familiar and evolving that into designs that are innovative and wearable. It’s approachable with a bit of tech.”


The key technology in the Mountain Athletics collection is FlashDry and FlashDry-XD. Moisture management, venting, and durability are the major factors that make these pieces ready for your toughest workout.
