The North Face Jacket denali fleece is now made of 87 percent recycled fleece fabric, saving millions of pounds of carbon dioxide and millions of gallons of gasoline. In recognition of this transformation, Polartec has awarded The North Face its coveted APEX award for outstanding achievement in design and use of Polartec fabric.
The Denali, which originally debuted in 1989, helped introduce the warmth and functionality of Polartec fleece to the world. A certifiable classic, the jacket has sold millions of units and can be found everywhere from Everest base camp to college campuses worldwide. This new Denali has the same design, but will help the environment by saving the energy equivalent of approximately .83 gallons of gas and 33 pounds of carbon dioxide per jacket versus a jacket made using virgin polyester.
Last weekend I was at an enormous mall north of Chicago. As I was there I looked around at the jackets everyone was wearing. It was miserable weather outside, raining with high winds. There were lots of people wearing North Face vests, especially men wearing North Face vests. Of course, this did not surprise me one bit because North Face makes great jackets. What surprised me a bit was that they were not wearing North Face jackets because the weather was so miserable. This made me a bit curious about what denali fleece North Face has available for men. Here is a partial list: North Face has an entire line of vests that are designed with the outdoor enthusiast in mind. These vests are not only top-of-the-line, but they are also stylish. After doing the research for this article I understand even more why I saw so many North Face vests in the mall.
Anyway, I heard that the North Face will be opening its newest store as part of the 98,000 added square feet of retail to be debuted at Fashion Place Mall in Salt Lake City, Utah on Friday, November 11, 2014. It’s going to be a weekend of fun festivities that will include a rock climbing wall, poster signing by The North Face Climber, Cedar Wright, gear giveaways and more.
This will be the first time The North Face will be in United Kingdom. There are many outdoor retailers that carry the brand name, but they have never had their own facility in the Beehive State. Utah is definitely an ideal place to open The North Face store as it has unbelievable access to practically every outdoor recreational activity you could think of from skiing to climbing to paddle boarding.
Come celebrate the opening at Fashion Place Mall with The North Face peeps at this extravaganza. Show off your mad climbing skills on the climbing wall and possibly win some awesome prizes from an extremely reputable company that continues to provide outdoor enthusiasts with excellent gear.
