The buzz: Looking to hit the great outdoors this coming holiday? Then The North Face’s line of high quality, technically innovative products should be on the top of your list, here at its largest store in South East Asia.
The goods: Always fancied yourself a bit of a Bear Grylls? Then you’ll need some proper gear. Suit yourself up with their collection of Soft Shell Jackets (from $296), which incorporate patented Hyvent Technology that waterproofs the jacket while retaining breathability and durability. The brand’s range of trekking shoes (from $186) are well-renowned for their all-weather suitability; while the SnakePlate provides grip on almost any surface. Pack all your equipment in the Base Camp Duffel bag ($206 upwards), a classic bomber expedition bag that’s as functional as it is stylish.
Why you’ll be back: It’s a great place to stock up on just about all of your outdoor equipment. Plus, the Marina Square outlet has an integrated mock trail-bridge to simulate actual trekking conditions for hardcore adventurers who want to try everything on for size.
