Even at altitude, summer temps in the Alps can push above 25 degrees. And if you’re not climbing or scrambling, you don’t need the full coverage of trousers. That’s why The North Face created the Impendor Alpine Shorts. They’re made from a durable, yet stretchy ripstop weave that’s tough enough to be worn day-in, day-out, but stretchy enough not to restrict your movements. They feature FlashDry™ technology on the back that wicks away sweat and they’ve been treated with a durable water repellent so they don’t suck up water during summer showers. Silicon detailing on the waistband helps them stay in place even when wearing a backpack.
Founded in 1966 The North Face is named after the coldest, most unforgiving and harshest face of a mountain. Yet it was born on a sun-soaked Californian beach by two friends who shared a passion for climbing and the outdoors. Today, the iconic ‘Half Dome’ logo can be found the world over.
Basking on the sea shore, breaking virgin powder in the Alps, or standing on the summit of Everest. All because The North Face clothing and equipment is trusted by people who place their lives in the knowledge and ability of a world leading brand.
The North Face achieves this level of trust and success because of their tireless attitude towards innovation and progress. Which means their waterproof jackets, their super warm down vests and their extensive range of bags, footwear and clothing are all made with the common belief that you should never stop exploring.
