The North Face's technologies and commitment to responsibility
If The North Face is one of Canada's favourite outdoor brands, it's because of its in-house technologies, which can be found in many winter boots, shoes, winter coats, shells…
These different technologies enable the American brand to design lightweight, high-performance clothing and gear that will last over time. For example, the company q Gore-Tex into its waterproof garments.
Vectiv, Futurelight, ThermoBall, DryVent… These names may not ring a bell, but they encapsulate all of The North Face's know-how and innovation. Futurelight for waterproof and breathable garments, Thermoball for insulated jackets and coats, and Vectiv for trail running shoes and hiking boots… all names familiar to outdoor enthusiasts.
The North Face is also committed to environmental and social responsibility. The North Face parkas and rain jackets, for example, will soon be produced from recycled, responsibly grown and renewable or regenerative materials (by 2025). Other examples include the award of RDS certification in 2016 (responsible down) and the creation of the Renewed program in 2018 to promote circularity.
