The North Face - Palm Equipment

Since 1966, The North Face has worked towards building the best gear for the outdoors, and supporting the preservation of wild places. They have helped inspire a global movement of outdoor exploration. This American outdoor product company specializes in outerwear, fleece, coats, shirts, footwear, and equipment such as backpacks, tents, and sleeping bags. They sponsor many professional athletes from around the world.
Way back in 1979, in a small shed in Somerset, Andy Knight whiled away the hours working mostly with fibreglass but with the aim of making better gear to take paddling. From these humble beginnings, Palm Equipment grew into one of the biggest, best and most innovative providers of kayaking gear and apparel and Andy’s work continues on to this day, albeit in a slightly bigger shed, just down the road.
