So you need a puffer jacket, or a lightweight summer jacket, or a fleece, or, for that matter, any jacket that makes leaving your house that little bit more appealing? You probably thought of The North Face. If you didn’t, then you’ve somehow managed to dodge the fact that The North Face jackets have been some of the best outdoor jackets on the market since the brand’s birth in 1968.

Finding its roots firmly within the world of climbing, The North Face slowly but surely spread itself across multiple disciplines, becoming one of the go-to names for all jackets for all people, from adventurers to... well, us.

While some labels are famed for one model, The North Face has chiseled out multiple permanent niches for itself. We’re talking about the Denali Fleece, Himalayan Parka, Nuptse Jacket, and a handful of other North Face Jackets that have reached such popularity that they’re immune to changing trends.

And, although The North Face jackets come in all shapes and sizes, each suited to its specific use, the dots are connected by common qualities of durability, warmth, and signature style. Out of respect for one of the greatest to ever do it, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite The North Face jackets for all wardrobes below.
