5. The North Face

thenorthfaceVanderbilt Students like fleece jackets made by The North Face. They also like backpacks made by The North Face. They also like gloves made by The North Face. I’ve heard there are a few people who even have The North Face underwear. 

Transcending even more groups than Natty Lite or the embroidered animal on shirts, The North Face logo is even more common than a Vanderbilt logo on students’ and teachers’ apparel and gear. At the beginning of the year, it seemed like just the vast majority of Vanderbilt students had The North Face items, but today I noticed that one of the Malaysian students was carrying a backpack with that familiar Helvetica Logo. So, it appears everyone has The North Face gear.

What is it about The North Face that makes it so appealing to Vanderbilt students? Many students say that the North Face jackets are exceptionally warmer than other brands. However, according to the Polartec website, it seems that everything from the $50 Columbia jacket in the bookstore to the $160 Patagonia jacket are all made out of the same material. (Polartec Classic 200) Despite this, the $165 The North Face “Denali” jacket is still the most common item on campus.
