The North Face — Walls Are Meant For Climbing
The Mountain Jacket is a heavy-duty veteran of many Himalayan and polar expeditions. First introduced as part of an alpine system to protect climbers and mountaineers from extreme elements, the Mountain Jacket has since become a standard for durable, protective outerwear. See the jacket in our bio.
There are many forms of travel involved in outdoor exploration, all which have some level of environmental impact. In 2016, we worked to create a calculator that can tell us the exact carbon footprint of our expeditions. Our most recent #TNFAntarctica17, marked the first expedition in which this calculator was implemented. We used that information to offset those emissions by replanting forests with our partners at The Conservation Fund. Photo by @Pablo_Durana
