Gear You Need for Your Next Hike


If you’re looking for some new hiking gear this summer, The North Face has accessories and apparel that any hiker would want to sport on the trails. In this article, we cover what you need for different types of hikes.


Easy, Fun Trails

Don’t want to think twice about what you’re wearing? The Women’s Dune Sky Onesie makes getting dressed for a hike simple by pairing shorts and a low-back tank top in one effective, stylish outfit. This athletic one-piece is perfect for outdoor exercise. It’s sweat-wicking, soft and treated with anti-odour technology so you can look and feel your best on the trails. Made from recycled polyester, it uses FlashDry™ material to enhance moisture management, keeping you comfortable as you wander through the woods.

Whether you’re taking a short path to a waterfall viewpoint or embarking on a spontaneous side adventure, the Berkley Crossbody is a convenient, lightweight bag treated with non-PFC durable water-repellent. You can fit a water bottle, cell phone, small first-aid kit, sunscreen and sunglasses in this vintage crossbody bag made from 400D recycled nylon. With a capacity of 4.75 litres, it’s ideal for nature walks, forest bathing and daily use. Pair it with a backpack on longer adventures to keep your essential items within reach.

The Women’s Dune Sky Strappy Bra is another great piece for easy, fun trails. The creative flower design on the black print provides a supportive message while the lunar slate heather block colour highlights the intricate multi-loop strap design. This fitted, low-impact bra is moisture-wicking, anti-odour and lined for opacity. It features removeable pads and a next-to-skin feel for ultimate comfort on the trail.


Cool, Rainy Days

Don’t stay inside—embrace the rain with The North Face’s Dryzzle FUTURELIGHT™ Jacket. Available in muted tones like shady blue, black and taupe green or the stand-out fiery red, this jacket is impressively waterproof and breathable, so rain can’t get in but your sweat can get out. The attractive cut means this jacket hits in the right places, and the material is soft and light. This technical shell features adjustable hood-and-loop cuff tabs, a full-length front zip with a chin guard and secure-zip hand pockets. It’s extremely portable—it stows inside the chest pocket—so you can easily put it away when the clouds start to clear.

Avoid the shivers on cool hiking days with the Women’s Star Rise Fleece Cardigan. Toss it on as an extra layer when you’re relaxing at the summit or shrug it on to get cozy at the campsite. Made with FlashDry™ technology, UPF protection and an anti-odour treatment, this isn’t your grandmother’s cardigan. Super soft and stretchy, it’s made from recycled polyester, rayon and spandex.

The Men’s Wander Pants are made for all-day comfort, on and off the trails. Sweat-wicking and water-repellent, these abrasion-resistant, durable pants perform well on cool, drizzly days. These pants are currently available in three different colours and sizes small to 3XL.


Sunny, Sweaty Adventures

Keep the sun out of your eyes with the Horizon Hat from The North Face. The mesh back design features a ponytail opening and the FlashDry-Pro™ sweatband keeps your forehead cool and dry.  The front panels and brim are made with recycled nylon. It’s a classic fit—not too tight, not too loose—for maximum comfort and practicality during your outdoor pursuits. This hat is available in two sizes (small/medium or large/x-large) and seven fun colours, including a special design for International Women’s Day.

If you’re looking for a breathable, mid-sized pack for your hike, check out The North Face’s Basin 24 Backpack. The NextVent™ back panel offers breathability and padding to keep you cool and comfortable. The large main compartment has a capacity of 24 litres. Side stash pockets and compression straps make important items like hydration, hiking poles and bear spray easily accessible. Thoughtful features like the threaded hydration sleeve, whistle on the sternum strap and the concealed rain cover make this pack a wise choice for your next adventure.
