North Face has jumped on the fitness bandwagon and is offering a range aimed at those who love to workout outdoors. What is more surprising that it has taken them this long to bring out the Mountain Athletics range.
The North Face Mountain athletics range launched exclusively at Cotswold Outdoor on the 29th January and features a FlashDry technology that offers an advanced moisture and temperature management. These garments don’t add weight or bulk so if you’re out for a multi-day hike they shouldn’t add much weight to your pack.
This range is aimed at both genders and for the women features, capri tights, light weight breathable Hoodie, bounce-B-gone the brilliantly named sports bra and a graphics loose fitting tank top which I might buy for myself – the Mountain Athletics motif might help remind me why I’m sweating it out in the gym or running in the rain. Take a look at the pictures below and tell us what you think of this range.

Icebreaker, the brand that brought merino wool to the world, has teamed up with British nature artist Simon Beck to create designs inspired by the outdoors. Beck is the first in Icebreaker’s ongoing global series with artists who respect and work in nature, using objects found in nature. Simon’s intricate, gigantic, awe-inspiring snow and sand drawings have been captured as designs on Icebreaker merino wool in a men’s and women’s collection for Fall/Winter 2014. A portion of the proceeds from the collection will support Icebreaker’s donation to Protect Our Winters, an environmental non-profit group dedicated to fighting climate change.
“We were inspired to work with Simon because his sand and snow drawings leave no lasting impact on the environment,” Said Jeremy Moon, Founder and Creative Director of Icebreaker.
“And a British artist drawing a Merino sheep horn in the Alps of Switzerland was the perfect metaphor to convey my belief, that to tackle climate change we must work across borders in a true collaboration to fight for the future of the planet.”
The centerpiece design is an Icebreaker-inspired Merino ram’s horn, originally created on snow at Bachalp Lake in the Swiss Alps by Beck.
“I love creating art, engraving it into nature and sharing it with people,” said Simon Beck. “Some people see me as a high-performance, high-precision snow artist. It’s a great way to exercise in the mountains and snow, and I can share my creations through photographs with people around the world.”
The collection is available from select outdoor and sports shops through out the UK.
