The North Face are undoubtedly one of the major players in the outdoor market and so having them as one of our brands is a great privilege. What it means is that we have the ability to choose the clothing, equipment and footwear which we feel suits our customer base, and their needs. Handy when The North Face have products across the spectrum, from trail running to expedition clothing.
This year we’ve taken on a larger range of North Face Backpacks backpacks and this includes the all new Matthes Crest and Conness which are technical rucksacks for trekking and technical ascents in the mountains. The North Face have developed a fit system called Opti-Fit which is a five point adjustment system which allows the user to fit the pack closer to the body while maintaining ventilation in order to boost stability and comfort over tough terrain. There are gender specific versions of the Opti-Fit so you can have comfortable his and hers trips. Further down the range in the technical daypacks there have been some advancements in that department with the arrival of the Alteo, Casimir and Angstrom which cover volumes from 30 litres to 50. These packs show off their lightweight yet comfortable colours and are sure to be popular packs in the fast and light enthusiasts.
We have also stocked the usual suspects like the Base Camp duffel’s, Borealis and Jester packs so you can find them all in our backpacks and bags collection.
We have also taken on The North Face Tents for the summer and this is an exciting new collection which has updated old favourites and some new additions too. We have taken a range that varies from the VE 25 which is a super technical mountain tent made expedition level use right down to the Mica FL 1 for super light assaults. The North Face have managed to squeeze a lot of space from clever pole construction and additional vestibule construction which is great for backpackers and cycle touring enthusiasts.
Along with our growing backpack collection we have also stocked a comprehensive North Face travel luggage selection. The TNF luggage features the likes of the Rolling Thunder, which comes in 3 capacities; large, medium & small. This travel bag is a wheeled monster made from the same tough fabric as the well known Base Camp Duffel bags, of which we also have a large offering. We also have the Doubletrack, another large capacity wheeled travel bag, which has a zip out daypack – very handy on long hauls and stop overs. Speaking of long haul flights we have the North Face Long Haul which is a 75 litre, wheeled travel bag, made for distance travelling. This one features organisation, compression straps and, like most of the other travel bags, an ambidextrous retractable handle for effortless navigating.
We have a great collection of North Face products, and all our staff have had extensive training on all the products, so if you’re not quite sure on what item to go for then give us a call on 01179 113 869, we’d be happy to help.
