The North Face Outdoor Apparel Gear
The North Face brand was established in 1968 by Douglas Tompkins and Kenneth "Hap" Klopp in San Francisco. The two renamed a San Francisco climbing equipment retail store they'd founded two years earlier. The idea of The North Face originated after a hiking trip on the Eagle Mountain in Minnesota.  The north face of a mountain in the northern hemisphere is generally the coldest, iciest and most formidable route to climb.
For a time the store offered only highly selected merchandise targeted to climbers and backpackers. By the 1980s, skiwear was added, followed by camping equipment.
Today, The North Face is a wholly owned subsidiary of the VF Corporation. Its headquarters is in Alameda, California, co-located with its corporate sibling, JanSport. In 2007, JanSport was the world's largest backpack maker; combined, the two manufactured nearly half of all small backpacks sold in the United States.
