The North Face, Inc. Key Developments

The North Face Launches Apex Flex GTX

The North Face officially launched Apex Flex GTX®, the first-ever fully waterproof, soft rain jacket that is made for comfort. Not satisfied with a jacket that people wear only because they have to, The North Face and GORE-TEX® dedicated years of innovation, product development and testing to creating a rain jacket comfortable and versatile enough to wear rain or shine. Apex Flex technology is available in two styles, Apex Flex GTX® Jacket for $199.00 MSRP (Men, Women), an active-fit, and Apex Flex GTX® Disruptor Parka for $230.00 MSRP (Men, Women), a longer fit ideal for streetwear, both designed for ultimate versatility in unpredictable conditions. A soft woven face fabric combined with a waterproof, breathable membrane and comfortable knit back make Apex Flex GTX® the ultimate combination with protection from the elements while providing the warmth and comfort of a favorite hoodie.

The North Face Launches First-Ever Urban Exploration Concept Shop in the U.S

The North Face has opened a concept shop in San Francisco aimed at the city explorer. The discreet storefront in the Jackson Square neighborhood is the first of its kind in the U.S., and will focus exclusively on the label's premium streetwear range. A similar space will be featured within The North Face New York Flagship store opening on 5th Avenue later this month. Open for a limited time only, the Urban Exploration shop will be devoted to protective gear suitable for the modern urbanite. New product will be regularly dropped in-store in the coming months, including collaborations, and curated pieces from the brand's Japanese and Hong Kong collections. The shop will feature exclusive and limited edition product like the Original Daypacks and Soft Duffels reissue. In honor of the company's 50-year tradition of making handcrafted outdoor gear, The North Face revived some of the first-ever packs sewn and sold at the company's original location.
