66°NORTH - Keeping Iceland warm since 1926
66°NORTH Ltd. is one of Iceland’s oldest manufacturing companies. Established in 1926, it’s been a long-time leading innovator in the creation of specialized clothing for use in the toughest conditions on land and sea. Over the past ten years, 66°NORTH has grown extensively and is considered an expert in the production of outdoor clothing.
At 66°NORTH, we believe a clothing company must strive to accommodate all types of people. We take pride in producing garments that tick all of the boxes. Our clothing is waterproof, breathable, durable, reliable, comfortable, versatile and stylish.
66°NORTH has dressed the Icelandic Search and Rescue Organization, the largest volunteer rescue squad in the world, for more than half a century. Whether there has been an avalanche or an earthquake, these brave squad members must stay out in all kinds of conditions for as long as it takes to get the job done. They are well qualified to testify about the quality and durability of our clothing.
66°NORTH is an authentic brand that draws upon 1000 years of history for inspiration. The company merges high quality technical fabrics with technical designs to satisfy the active user. The company now offers a wide selection of protective clothing for all occasions and as we at 66°NORTH like to say: “There is no such thing as bad weather, just the wrong clothing”.
Today, 66°NORTH has more than 300 employees and operates ten shops in Iceland under the brands 66°NORTH and Iceland Giftstore. The company’s website is http://www.66north.com/.
