The North Face PARKA Celebrates 50 Years of Exploration Embarking on a Legendary Expedition – Face The North Face

The year 2023 marks the 50th anniversary of The North Face’s iconic PARKA, inviting explorers to revisit their adventures in the snow and enjoy the view from the summit.

Born in 1973, The North Face PARKA Collection was created by professional expeditioners after they conducted tests during their excursions in the Brooks Range. In the past 50 years, the PARKA has accompanied explorers as they scaled high peaks and traversed treacherous glaciers, from exploring the Antarctic and reaching the summit of Everest to speeding down the world’s highest skiing descent and much more, becoming their most trusted companion when they need to “Face the North Face”. To celebrate the PARKA’s 50th anniversary, The North Face presents the new Hmlyn Parka and Triclimate Jacket, fusing cutting-edge technology and classic elements, and paying homage to the spirit of exploration.

Located at the north side of Mount Everest, “the north face” has always been considered one of the toughest and most challenging mountain routes to conquer. With the determination to “Face The North Face”, we hope to encourage explorers to not only challenge themselves on steep mountains, but also to search within and spread their wings when faced with adversity. The North Face is continuously seeking breakthroughs in innovation, striving to create the best gear and accompany more explorers as they overcome their own “north face”.
