The North Face Freeride: more quality for less money

The North Face Freeride: more quality for less money

The latest Freeride collection from The North Face has everything… The look, the warmth, the technicality, the power to withstand the most brutal Winter conditions and, oh yeah, the low, low price…

If you don’t know The North Face, you must be living under a rock. The brand is part of the legendary category and has been around for decades, but the same fundamental mission remains unchanged since 1966:  Provide the best gear for athletes, modern day explorer, all around outdoors lovers and us, snowboarders.

This time around, the brand came through with a line of outerwear that's made for the back country's harsh conditions, the Freeride collection. Considering Quebec weather is also harsh, those pieces will have your back this Winter. In the streets of the city, on untouched powdery slopes or in the chairlift of your local mountain, The Freeride collection was made to let you enjoy Winter to the fullest.  

The North Face has a reputation for producing some of the best gear out there, but at a price that’s sometimes a bit high. It makes sense though, you pay for what you get, but when TNF arrived with its latest Freeride collection, we were positively surprised to see that it’s now possible to get a full (pants/jacket) Winter kit from The North Face FOR UNDER $500.

Don’t believe us? Check out the three kits below and have the best winter of your life for a price that’s super reasonable. CHECK IT OUT.
