Opened byaspiring alpine ski racer Douglas Tompkins and his wife Susie, the shops were named "The NorthFace" to signify the type of gear they sold: fierce! In the Northern Hemisphere, the north face of amountain is the coldest, iciest, and toughest to climb. Gear you take on that expedition better betough. Although the shops were mostly ski gear and apparel, they also sold a small selection ofother types of outdoor gear.Shortly after establishing The North Face stores, Doug sold them to two brothers, who expandedthe companys number of retail outlets. The company sold again in 1968, this time to its mostfamous owner, Kenneth "Hap" Klopp. Hap not only added sleeping bags and pack production tothe business but also tagged it with the popular logo that the company still uses today. The NorthFaces easily recognizable logo, which consists of three concentrically smaller quarter-circles, isan interpretation of the famous Half Dome rock formation in Yosemite National Park.The North Face expanded in the 1980s to to create a line of extreme skiwear, and by the end ofthe decade they had become the only supplier in the U.S. to offer high-performance outerwear,skiwear, sleeping bags, packs and tents. Today, over 40 years later, The North Face offers anextensive line of high-tech outdoor apparel and equipment, and it continues to hold the reputationas the premier supplier of gear for the outdoor enthusiast.
