The North Face Mountain Athletics Gear & Giveaway

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of The North Face. All opinions are 100% mine. I hope you enjoy a peek into the new Mountain Athletics Line and take advantage of the awesome giveaway opportunity at the bottom!


Just shy of three years ago, I knew I would finally get familiar with a brand many have grown to know, love, and outfit for performance and activewear. In the fall of 2012, my husband accepted a job offer in the Detroit area, and our little Florida family bundled up, migrated north, and haven’t looked back since!

The North Face is a brand I now rely on during the cold winter months that carries an extensive line of performance apparel, equipment and footwear. Their latest line, Mountain Athletics, features technical training apparel, footwear, and clothing with technology that is designed to help various levels of athletes get outdoors.

I was given the opportunity to pick out an outfit to review, and I was excited to see how this collection can help push the boundaries of exploration and support me doing the outside activities I love!

Mountain Athletics from The North Face is a unique and extremely effective performance line. By using active stretch fabric, it provides durability and offers range of motion and performance to help athletes and fitness goers train outdoors.

Mountain Athletics apparel uses FlashDryXD, a technology that won’t snag or pull. The materials stretch, flex, and move with you through your workout while keeping you dry!

This collection of athletic clothing is perfect for outdoor enthusiasts who enjoy activities like running, hiking, skiing, snowboarding, and training for their next climb.

While visiting the retail store, it was a challenge to pick just one outfit to take home with me.

From the Women’s Dynamix Hoodie and Dynamix Leggings to the Motivation 1/4 Zip and Suprema Vest, everything looked so comfortable and cute.

I tried on a variety of items from Mountain Athletics, and could have easily left with one of everything. I knew I wanted the Motivation Crop Legging as soon as I saw it in Ink Spot Blue, so I paired a handful of bright colored mix-and-match pieces to try on with them.

I would have loved to take the Women’s Flow Tank home, but it just wasn’t as practical as a warm jacket for training outside for the majority of the year in Michigan.

Instead, I clung to the Women’s Supra Full Zip Hoodie. I loved the warm but flexible feel and the green and coral color combination.

Throughout the winter and even spring months (ohhh the polar vortex), I often turn to a couple of thin but warm jackets from my own North Face collection whenever I go for a run. I love how long the sleeves come down to my fingers and comfortable thumbholes. They’re the best!

The Supra Full Zip Hoodie has been especially great on the trails! It does a great job of keeping me warm, comfortable, and cozy on my walks and runs. I took it and the Motivation Crop Leggings for a spin last week, and didn’t want to take them off when I returned home. Both items are so, so comfy!

I would highly recommend anyone looking to gear up for training (indoors or outdoors!) to check out The North Face site and retails stores to purchase picks from the Mountain Athletic line. In fact, here’s a little incentive to get you going…
