“We launched Summit Series in the Fall of 2000 as a collection of styles that represent the pinnacle of The North Face products,” said Joe Vernachio, global VP of product, in an interview with SGB. “With new technologies and innovations developed by The North Face in the last few years we saw an opportunity to make products in a new way and thought the Summit Series collection was the logical collection to put the most innovative product.”

To test the entire Summit Series, Conrad Anker, Hilaree O’Neill, David Gottler and Renan Ozturk journeyed to Langtang National Park in Nepal in February 2015. One of the results of this expedition was the groundbreaking motion picture, Meru.
“The Summit Series is pure and simple, elegant and refined, durable and rugged,” Anker told SGB. “If you want to experience the harshest climates, this is the kit for you.”
