Once you slip on The North Face Men's Kanagata Long Sleeve Shirt you'll understand why we named it after the Japanese phonetic for 'mould'. Constructed with raw hems and ultrasonic bonding, this shirt offers a supremely soft next–to–skin feel. Open zones at the back, chest and forearms help manage excess moisture, which is important as you ramp up the intensity, while the lightweight and stretchy fabric promotes greater range of motion during energetic activities.
The North Face fundamental mission remains unchanged since day one; Build the best gear for outdoors, supporting the preservation of wild places and inspiring a global movement of outdoor exploration. The innovative outdoor manufacturer has been at the forefront of not just in the outdoor market, but also at the forefront of adventure, pushing the boundaries of what we know, never stop exploring.
Named after the coldest, most unforgiving face of a mountain, the brands’ humble beginnings ironically began at San Francisco’s North Beach. It was there in 1966 when two hiking enthusiasts, Dough Tompkins and his wife Susan Tompkins founded a small outdoors retail store, The North Face.
Now more than 50 years since the brand’s humble beginnings, The North Face is the first choice of many of the world's most accomplished climbers, mountaineers, extreme skiers, snowboarders, endurance runners, and explorers.
