Winter is coming, so now is the time to get yourself stocked up against the testing elements.
66°North was founded in 1926 by Hans Kristjánsson, making protective clothing for Icelandic fishermen and workers braving the North Atlantic elements. The company was passionate about creating garments that would protect workers from the harsh conditions fishermen faced while trolling the seas off Iceland.
After moving to Norway to learn how to tailor and sew fishermen‘s clothing, the brand took its name from the latitudinal line of the Arctic Circle which touches Súgandafjörður where the company was first founded.
Today, the company is known for its stylish workwear clothing inspired by the Icelandic weather that is famous for throwing down rain, wind, sun and snow all on the same day.
This winter, be prepared to protect yourself from the elements with one of their new stylish jackets.
Highlights from the collection this winter include the Tindur, a high-grade classical duck down jacket, initially designed for the Icelandic mountaineer Leifur Örn, and the Dyngia, based on an original down jacket designed 10 years ago. It proves that quality and style never goes out of fashion.
