The North Face Brand Spotlight and Giveaway

North Face Giveaway

**Congratulations to Heidi who has been chosen as the winner of this giveaway. If you didn’t win this giveaway check out our current Brand Spotlight Giveaway.**

The North Face was named after the coldest most unforgiving side of a mountain. Their outdoor gear and outerwear is durable and tough enough for your next adventure. Keep reading to learn more about this popular brand and be sure to enter The North Face Giveaway below.

In 1966, two outdoor lovers and hiking enthusiasts opened a small retail store in San Francisco to sell mountaineering gear. That store was known as The North Face. Two years later they began designing and manufacturing their own line of technical mountaineering clothing and equipment.

The North Face Giveaway

The North Face quickly grew respect from the mountaineering community by producing excellent products and through its sponsorships of athletes on their expeditions to explore many of the untouched areas around the world. Since the early days, The North Face has always stayed true to their slogan ‘Never Stop Exploring’.

    I love golf, travel, and walking the city streets. The North Face could keep me warm in those and many other activiites.

    I am currently exploring from a new perspective and at a new pace– that of my toddler! Trips have been closer to home and hikes have been shorter. We really do stop and smell the flowers! (And check out bugs, rocks, sticks… you name it!)

    “Since life is short and the world is wide, the sooner you start exploring it, the better.” –Simon Raven

    It’s not just a quote, it’s what I’ve adopted as a mantra for a life in the outdoors. As an athlete and outdoor enthusiast, I believe in pushing myself and my gear to the limits. It’s one way to truly find out what you are mentally, physically and emotionally capable of accomplishing. To never cease in new explorations and adventures, is a way to constantly challenge, surprise and inspire yourself.

  5. Nina Suetake

    I never stop exploring by constantly learning new things and improving on skills. This winter I’m learning about backcountry splitboarding and climbing season will be all about getting better at crack climbing.

  6. Erika S

    Over the last few years I’ve gotten into anything involving the outdoors. Backpacking, kayaking and skiing whenever I can. This August I will be setting off in an adventure my dad and I started planning last year to hike the John Muir Trail. Him and I never stop exploring and are always looking for new adventures to set off on.

  7. Tami

    We moved to Colorado, to help us “never stop exploring”! Wanted our kids to grow up hiking, and camping… loving the (free!) enjoyment of the outdoors more than anything else. :)

  8. Tami

    Tweeted about the contest here!

    (Hope I didn’t post my comment twice… and I hope my 1st comment went through?? Hard to tell – it just kinda disappears after clicking “Post Comment” :)

  9. Danielle Fenton

    Start: Sell the house, explore the world… Come back, work hard, save hard, plan the next adventure, go!!! And so it continues :-)

  10. Eugenie

    I’m always looking for places to visit that I haven’t been to yet. I’ve been to all 7 continents but there is still so much more for me to see and experience.

  11. cynthia gavigan- event coordinator BSA Troop 89

    try to plan hiking and/or camping trip 9 times a year for BSA Troop 89 Lake Arrowhead, CA

  12. Mike Owens

    North face is on my shopping list for the outdoor activities we will finally get to this year as my son joins Boy Scouts

  13. Ashley Hughes

    I’ll say we never stop exploring California! We just moved here a few months ago and there is so much to explore. Hoping to explore more north of California this summer!

  14. StacyE

    Never SCUBA’d with North Face but willing to give it a whirl! Land-based loves are biking, skiiing (alpine and nordic), hiking and the more mundane LaCrosse mom, Basketball mom, Track mom and Cross Country mom.

  15. Molly

    What do I do to never stop exploring? Stay in shape, leave excuses at the door, research new and amazing places to always have a destination in mind, stay active on, and keep gear visible so you’ll want to use it. I love to explore!

  16. Terry Jensen

    My wife and I enjoy backpacking and have been going to the same places for several years. This year we’re exploring a new “No Tellum” place in Central Idaho that is a little bit higher up, and has a little more elevation gain. Presently, we’re getting in shape for this trek. Wish us luck!

  17. Dave

    Last year I pedaled my bicycle 12,000 miles around the USA. This summer I am leaving on a similar journey including the Great Divide Route and this bicycle ride will most likely take 2 years.. I never stop exploring because it forces me to make the connection that I am a part of the natural world, not separate from it.

    tweeted it from @DaveFromTWJ

  18. Dave Herring

    I look to explore our mountains here in VA the beautiful Blue Ridge. Trail running is generally mode of transportation with kayaking on the unique Shenandoah River as another option. Ultra running long distances up, over, and around the mountains is my adventure.

  19. erika

    Our family lives in the North Cascade mountains. We explore every nook and cranny of our beautiful home, whether it is hiking, skiing, biking or snowshoeing. We live in The North Face, as it provides everything that we need!

  20. Robin Miller

    I’m now exploring the world through my toddler and baby’s eyes. My baby just started to walk so this summer will be the first time she can walk outside. I’m sure we will have many unforgettable adventures together!

  21. Heather Luchies

    Keeping it real in the Great Outdoors… Snowshoeing, hiking, skiing or whatever else this girl needs NF to keep her warm.

  22. Kevin Kopish

    I have been fortunate to have the opportunity to travel to soem pretty amazing and far off places with work, but more importnatly I’ve been teaching my kids to explore nature.

  23. Kathy Randolph

    My husband and I love to explore new places and especially new hiking trails. We already have a few North Face products to keep us warm on chilly days but could always use some more!!

  24. rob clifford

    the northface products from any thing that i use in hiking from trailshoes as well as hydration packs and outerwear out of all my gear i dont have to worry about my northface gear. its rugged and built to last from the trilayer system coats to gloves as well as pants i feel confident in their durability. im always on the lookout for new products.

  25. Luke Dunscombe

    As I have small children, I keep seeking out new areas that have easier, kid-friendly trails but still have plenty to see as well as gear that makes taking them a bit easier as well (child carriers for the littlest one, snack containers, etc.).

  26. Graham Grochocinski

    Signing all of my letters and emails “Keep Discovering,” I’ve long felt a burning desire to travel and otherwise explore ANY place to which I’ve never been and those which I’ve already had the pleasure of visiting – there is no end to discovery.

    I don’t let anything stand in my way. I regularly plan trips here and abroad, and believe even the most last-minute trips deserve attending. I never miss an opportunity to discover new places, revisit old ones, and learn more about myself in the process.

  27. K Lindsay

    My husband and I have worked in the touring entertainment business, which has largely consisted of circus, for the past 15 years. This has meant needing great gear for all types of weather and conditions, and has put us in the perfect situation to explore all over the world. We have just finished 3 years in Russia and Europe, and are about to embark on 2 years in South America! North Face has been with us the whole time, from great boots, jackets, and pants, to the enviable luggage we carry it all in!

  28. Cindy Staloch

    I just got a metal detector and can’t wait to start exploring with it.
    Now I need some gear to get out there with.

  29. Eileen Hamilton

    I have filled in 21 states (so far) on my adventure map where I have gone either running, kayaking, or hiking, I started it at age 52. now at 63 years old, I figure I’ve got another good 20 good years in me for exploring!

  30. Luke Miller

    For me life is about getting out of the house, away from the cell and away from the computer. It’s about being free, seeing sights and living moments. The truth is our time on this planet is limited and we aren’t getting any younger. A time will come when all that we have are memories of what we have experienced. That is why I NEVER STOP EXPLORING.

  31. michael himes

    I’ll never stop traveling the undisturbed wilderness. There is no describing the peacefulness and serenity unless you have experienced it.

  32. Kelly

    My husband are big travelers. We can’t wait until our next vacation, which will be in the San Antionio area wine country. Having new North Face gear would be awesome!

  33. Nicole Matthews

    I have cystic fibrosis and so hiking helps me stay healthy and keep a positive frame of mind to fight this terminal illness. I recently completed all 46 of the ADK High Peaks, and plan to keep hiking and challenging myself!

  34. Pete Weiblen

    My two teenage daughters are the best thing that could ever have happened to my outdoor life. They never want to stop exploring the outdoors and I am lucky enough to lead the charge!

  35. Karen Meagher

    I ‘Never Stop Exploring’ by working 2-3 jobs to pay for my adventure vacations. I may never have a fancy home or a new car but I will never have a lame trip (or one at an all-inclusive resort).

  36. Ronni S.

    I will never stop being able to explore because I make sure my health is in tippity-top shape so I can keep going on amazing adventures!

  37. Glenn Taylor

    I love exploring all that California has to offer. From brisk mornings on the beach to skiing the Sierra’s.The weather here changes as much as the terrain and the views. The North Face is the perfect companion for my adventures.Peace!!

  38. L. Lundquist

    I do what I can to take care of the wild spaces so they will still be available in the future. Because I never want to stop exploring and I want others to be able to do the same.

  39. Halhiker

    I never stop exploring because there’s a new adventure right outside my door every day and every time I go to a new place I find even more places to go explore.

  40. Susie

    Our family never stops exploring. With 2 kids under 5, it’s the backyard; this summer will be the foothills and we will be planning a yearly trip to hike, bike, ski, or camp when the little one is a wee bit older.

  41. Kris P

    Learning how, in my 6th decade, how to stay warm while filling the 300 gallon water tank then haul it back to what”s passing for home these days. Did I mention the snowstorm? Go North Face!

  42. Kris P

    Hmm. Previous post disappeared. My exploring involves dropping back 2 centuries and learning the survival skills our ancestors took for granted. It’s sure an adventure in my 6th decade!

  43. Luke Counterman

    I never stop exploring by finding new ways to enjoy the outdoors. From hiking, biking, backpacking, and canoeing to rock and ice climbing, cross country skiing. By finding new activities to do I find more new places in my local area to enjoy.

  44. Ellie Williamson

    I never stop exploring for ways to improve my horseback riding, and The North Face jackets and vests keep me warm during my winter jumping lessons! They’re also great for trail rides or riding at home :)

  45. Mikhail

    Winters from year to year more colder. I hope North Face help me do not stop exploring world around me even in cold time.

  46. Anastasia Karpoukhina

    As a current Peace Corps Volunteer serving in one of the coldest regions of Georgia (the country not the state), I am literally and for sure Not stopping my explorations any time soon, new countries, people, cultures, traditions and food – I am here to stay!!!

  47. Grace

    Never stop exploring my boundaries and limitations. Always looking for opportunities to travel or just get outdoors and do something.

  48. Christina L

    My husband and I never stop exploring–we have lived in three states in the past 4 years and enjoy checking them out!

  49. Charlotte

    I never stop exploring by trying new things outside and with my dog and friends! We like to go out every season of the year… climbing, trail running, hiking, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, snowboarding, running races, fishing, you name it! It’s all about trying new things and having an open mind about the many ways to recreate in the outdoors while taking care of it so everyone can have incredible experiences like I have.

  50. tereza

    As much as I love traveling, I truly never stop exploring the prairie and woodland area near my home. By heading out time and time again over the years I get to really see and learn its beauty, witnessing the drama of the changing seasons, the activities of the wildlife, and the subtle shifts in color, sound, and texture as I go.

  51. Joshua doss

    Always trying to find that great piece of gear for camping hiking and fishing in the Rockies of Colorado and Montana. To the swamps and hills of Arkansas.
    I work as a city employee who is 20+ feet up a pole regardless of weather. So having the right warm and light gear is essential.

  52. Kari

    I’m a paleoecologist working in East Africa and Idaho (I just moved to the latter and LOVE it!). Life is nothing without adventure. Getting chased by a hippo, stuck up to my waist in mud, seeing a leopard cub harass a porcupine, watching the sunrise over the Rift Valley, being anywhere where all you hear and see is nature, you don’t get those kinds of experiences sitting on your couch! Hiking and snowshoeing in Idaho this winter has been awesome and I can’t wait for spring. Plan on climbing Kili for my 40th in 2015-I’d like a jacket or pair of boots to give to one of the Tanzanian porters, because they should have the very best gear-their lives depend on it!

    Living the Adventurous Life I Love~

  53. Alexa F.

    Considering my work has me leading hikes, bird walks, and all sorts of other programs… it’s pretty easy to Never Stop Exploring!

    I recently upgraded my main method of transportation (from a 1993 sedan to a 2011 hatchback) and it has made a huge impact and expanded my exploration abilities.

  54. Marla Connelly

    Never stop exploring your own backyard region. You usually don’t have to go very far to find an adventure. It always amazes me how ‘the locals’ know so little about their surroundings.

  55. Dave Simonsen

    Exploring the great outdoors is my family’s time for bonding and we would like nothing more than to make North Face an even bigger part of our adventures.

  56. Shelly Boyd

    We live near the AT in southwest Virginia so you gotta get outdoors.. I liked hiking/backpacking so much that I got a job doing wilderness trips with at-risk kids… and I hear from them all the time about trips they’re taking on their own. Passin’ it on.

  57. Vivian workman

    I enjoy getting outside. Whether its a trail run in the fresh snow in the forest or walking at lunch downtown, I try to get out each day. Currently I run quite a few trail (and road) races a year. I’m always looking for a new adventure and take this spirit on the road with me as I travel and trek in each city I visit.

  58. Jason

    Always embrace an opportunity for a new adventure. They may not all be pleasant experiences, but they’re all great memories.

  59. Joel Stitzer

    I love being outdoors! It doesn’t matter what I am doing as long as I’m outside. Golf, camping, snowboarding, spelunking, etc. I want it all!!!

  60. Mac Zafarana

    I try to make time and enjoy the outdoors while theyre still fairly pristine. I hike, bike, run, swim, and kayak in the summer and in the winter I ski 40+ days, snowshoe, and cross country. When im in the outdoors im in my element which is why ill never stop exploring

  61. J smith

    My husband and I explore through trips together. Next up 10 year anniversary Hawaii trip with a hike to remote waterfalls.

  62. Dana Lucas

    Every month of the year, I frustrate my boss and my coworkers by insisting on grouping my days off so I can leave the office for days at a time and go have An Adventure.

    Last January, I was backcountry skiing in the Sawtooths. In February, skiing in the Payettes. In March, a hut trip in British Columbia with ten friends. In April, backpacking in the Owhyees. May was getting some late-season powder around Idaho City, June was rafting the Bruneau, July was bushwhacking the Queen’s Creek drainage in Idaho to get to an unnamed lake (my anniversary “present” every year has usually consisted of bruises and dirt, courtesy of some trip or another with my husband), August was an historical re-enactment event in Pennsylvania, September was canoeing the Main Salmon river, October was backpacking in the Jarbidge wilderness, November was elk hunting with black-powder rifles north of Boisem and December was fishing for striped bass on the Chesapeake Bay with my dad. There’s just so much to do-! There were more trips in 2012 – horn-hunting in the spring, looking for morels and huckleberries, fishing and rafting on the various forks of the Payette, hiking in the foothills with my husky, the famous Amos – but the big ones were planned in advance, and required some serious gear and prep time.

    And 2012 was slow year! Previous years have held epic adventures, like self-supported ski trips in the Sierras, hiking across Idaho’s wilderness for a month, camping and backpacking on Kauai for three weeks, ski-mountaineering in the Cascades, and paddling the Middle Fork of the Salmon in an open canoe.

    I’m not sure what’s next – the weather here has been uncertain for February – but March is going to hold another Canadian ski trip with some best friends, and April a trip to the Grand Canyon. Meanwhile, when I’m not out in the wilds, I’m running, biking, and hiking here at home in Boise, and I’m doing all of it with North Face gear. Bags, tents, booties, down jackets, warm pullovers, sandals, wicking t-shirts, wool beanies, sun hats, hiking shorts – The North Face has contributed some essential piece of clothing or equipment to all of my backcountry and fitness excursions. And I’m hoping for a new down hoodie for the Canadian trip….there’s alway something else you need, right?
    So – my husband Ken, my husky Amos, and I all thank you, North Face, for making the gear that keep us exploring! Yours, Dana Lucas

  63. Stefanie Gladden

    I never stop exploring by going on a road trip at least once a month to a place I’ve never been, we always pick where we want to go and do it! We will never run out of places to explore!!

  64. Kristie W

    I keep picking up and moving, looking for the perfect place to call home. I always pack light and rely on quality brands of gear. I never stop exploring :D

  65. Steve Simmonds

    Never content to let life simply pass by, I push myself harder to develop, learn and travel. From oceans, lakes, rivers, valleys and mountain peaks, I never stop exploring. Northface has been with me every step of the way.

  66. Shelby B

    How do I never stop exploring? I let the kids take the lead! And if they need a little nudge to get out the door, I’m always happy to oblige! :)

  67. Derek Vreeland

    I never stop exploring by hiking and backcountry camping when I can. My oldest son and I went hiking and camping in Nebraska for his 13th birthday. Next year I am planning to hike the first 100 miles of the AT, from Springer Mt. To Albert Mt., for my 40th birthday.

  68. Caroline Edwards

    I’m a geology major at UNC Chapel Hill and am constantly outdoors for work and for play. This summer I am going on a field camp trip out west for almost two months for school. I could really use a new jacket to keep me warm during those cold desert nights!

  69. LT

    Although I live in an unsafe city, I still try my best to explore my community by venturing outside for exercise, socializing with my neighbors in order to help build community, and continuing to buy locally from farmers and mom and pop shops. You can’t let the hoodlums hold you down.

  70. Derek Vreeland

    I never stop exploring by hiking and back country camping when I can. Last year, my oldest son and I went hiking and camping in Nebraska for his 13th birthday. Next year, I am planning on hiking the first 100 miles of the AT, from Springer Mt. to Albert Mt., for my 40th birthday.

  71. Caroline E

    I am a Geology major and am almost always outdoors. I will keep exploring in the future for my Summer Field Camp for school and for fun!

  72. Dean Tenderholt

    I never stop exploring, it’s either the next family outing or the next boyscouting adventure. I’m always looking for better equipment and clothing to use and recommend to the scouts.

  73. Rosie

    I grew up in a rural area and loved walking through the woods. I never stop exploring b/c I like walking through the woods all seasons, it is so different all the time, and go to different places! I luv the quiet gurgle of the streams and coming upon lady slippers in the forest and wildflowers in spring. I luv the down parka. I walk everywhere and it would be so nice to have such a wonderful parka.

  74. Rosie

    I would adore this!!

  76. Dave Herring

    I’ll never stop exploring my home Blue Ridge Mountains through my trail running adventures. I’ll start to explore new places trail running like the GC R-to-R-to-R. I’m only just beginning my quest for trail running nirvana!

  77. TJ

    What I do to never stop exploring is to remind myself why I’m dragging myself out of bed before the sun comes up on a day off. Like they say, “Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore.”

  78. Ryan

    It is super easy for me to never stop exploring because I have two amazingly inquisitive kids. My wife and I are constantly exploring through our kids. When they were younger, we encouraged and directed their exploration. It is incredible to see them growing up and asking us on their own to do all the new things their minds can imagine.
