Women’s Prophecy Shoe

without comments


One shoe for all outdoor adventures. You probably heard the claim, but the reality is that other companies often make multisport shoes that do a lot of stuff but don’t do anything particularly well. The North Face Women’s Prophecy Shoe is a decisively different shoe with an exclusive and lightweight high-traction Vibram rubber outsole and a cushioned X-2 O2 air pod in the heel for trails and steep scrambles. The quality components give the Prophecy a clear advantage over the discount outlet weekend warrior approach. The North Face Prophecy is decisively different with an exclusive and lightweight high-traction Vibram rubber outsole and a resilient X-2 O2 air pod. The extra impact-absorption in the compression-molded EVA midsole gives the Prophecy plenty of trail running potential for female runners, especially if you require outdoor footwear with mesh panels for cooling. There’s also an injected TPU shank plate in the midsole to enhance the stability without adding the extra weight found in steel-shank hiking and climbing boots. Whether you’re looking for a shoe that you can use to trot or hike on trails, or you need a portable high-traction trail design for the most adventurous legs of your adventure travel, The North Face Prophecy shoe is a true multisport design made from quality components.

Blaze 20 Degree Sleeping Bag

without comments


Ideal for camping in a tent or out under the stars, the 20F-rated Blaze Sleeping Bag from The North Face offers exceptional comfort and practical features for every casual outdoor enthusiast. Unlike some sleeping bags that force you to pay for features you’ll never use, the Blaze gives you exactly what you need–including an affordable price tag. The Blaze features a synthetic (and fast-drying) Climashield HL synthetic fill with an overlapping shingle construction that traps air far better than those cheap knock-offs you find on clearance at the discount sporting good stores. The zippered hood can be left open for additional ventilation or you can cinch things up with the one-hand pull cords. Keep in mind that the Blaze has silky taffeta nylon along the shell and the lining, so it’s great for cabin and tent camping–not sleeping outside in slightly damp conditions (although the synthetic Climashield HL will certainly retain some of its insulating properties if wet).
