The North Face Gets a Face Lift from Pendleton in this New Collection

Avid outdoor lifestyle brands The North Face and Pendleton launched their first ever collaboration on November 29. This limited edition capsule collection is teeming with outdoor protection, style, and all sorts of essentials to help you brave the colder elements this year and beyond, from mountain jackets and vests prepared for frozen temperatures to durable commuter packs, camp mules, and wool hats.

The outerwear and accessories line celebrates also shares rich heritage of outdoor adventure from each company, both in appearance and functionality. The American-made wool signatures from Pendleton, coupled with iconic silhouettes from The North Face, stands up against the cold while also adding a little spice to your winter wardrobe.

Through six generations of family-owned fabric innovation, Portland-based Pendleton crafts unique wool patterns with eco-friendly technology. The company signature is recognized and used worldwide, available in select retailers across the U.S., Canada, Europe, Japan, Korea, and Australia.

Seeing that both outdoor brands reside on the West Coast (The North Face is from California), it’s somewhat surprising that this is the first time we see the two names together. Nevertheless, the capsule is a perfect blend between The North Face’s favorites styles straight and Pendleton iconic colorways.

The North Face Relaunches Retro ’90s Extreme Collection
north face 1900s extreme collection 20191008 tnf felber m 90 wind suit fiery red combo 04236

In January 2020, The North Face reintroduced a throwback 90s line called Extreme. As the moniker implies, the original collection launched in 1988 uniquely for the brand’s big-mountain skiers. Extreme would be draped over the most progressive athletes who pushed the sport to new limits. To make that possible, Extreme apparel was designed to perform at the highest level and look like nothing else on the mountain.

Over the last 30 years, suffice it to say that The North Face has pushed the needle in big-mountain tech and gear. Extreme is no longer, well, that extreme. From new futuristic breathable membranes to insanely warm layering systems and slick gear that would belong in 007’s backpack, The North Face is now light years away from Extreme when it comes to elite athlete outfitting.

Climbing the world’s highest peaks is a worthy goal in its own right. But, for some expeditioners, there’s no such thing as “enough.” In 2006, ski-mountaineer Kit DesLauriers became the first person in history to both summit and ski all Seven Summits. Now, The North Face is honoring her epic feat with a line of premium, high-tech outdoor apparel that’s set to redefine outerwear.

The North Face 7 Summits Collection is inspired by world-class mountaineering, but designed for the streets. It’s anchored by the beefy, Arctic-ready Himalayan Parka, plush ‘95 Denali Fleece, and 7SE Boots. A matching duffel/backpack, beanie, and carry-all round out the set. Every piece is available in a black-on-bumble-bee-yellow colorway. A series of interchangeable patches depicting the world’s seven summits allows wearers to customize their apparel.
