Jokla Parka AW19

66°North has kept Icelanders warm by producing high-quality outerwear since 1926, and living in Iceland means your parka is your all-year-round jacket.

Jokla's design features elements that have been passed on from previous classic 66°North designs, elements that are loved by Icelanders that have worn our parkas for most of their lives.

The name "Jokla" is derived from the Icelandic word for a glacier. We think it's an appropriate name for this parka as it suits equally well for a glacier expedition and the everyday urban commute.

Workwear revisited

For over half a century, we have been producing clothing for Icelanders in various working-class industries, ranging from protective clothing for fishermen to construction workers. This heritage is partly built on a vast amount of workwear archives. This summer, some of these archives become alive again.

SS19 Editorial | Walk the Woods Pt. I

For the third edition of our Copenhagen editorial, 66°North presents the SS19 editorial “Walk the woods” - a seasonal exploration of functional clothing with understated technical styling. For this season, the SS19 editorial is about showing that braving the outdoors doesn’t necessarily mean traveling to remote places or exploring the outskirts of nature, but rather proving that anyone can and should enjoy the outdoors and feel comfortable while doing so.

The featured SS19 collection draws inspiration from Icelandic outdoors, its surroundings and the environment. It consists of garments made from biodegradable fabrics, polyester from recycled plastic bottles and Seaqual, a material made of recycled plastic collected at the bottom of the sea.

Our products still emphasize functionality and classic technical fabrics, as they are designed to protect us from the unpredictable elements of being outside – whether it’s the Sunday walk in the woods or strolling down the streets of the city center.

Elísabet Margeirsdóttir didn’t set out to run the 400 km (250 miles) by-invitation-only Ultra Gobi when she started running fifteen years ago. But a string of successes led to her being the first Icelander to compete and the first woman to finish in the 2018 race.

Thorbergur Ingi | Winter Running

Thorbergur Ingi Jónsson grew up playing soccer during the long and snowy winters of eastern Iceland so he was never fazed by exercising outdoors. Soccer gave way to track and field but once he discovered ultra running in his twenties something clicked. He came 6th in the 2017 CCC and really tested his abilities in the 2018 Ultra Trail de Mont Blanc, a 104 mile race with a staggering 30,000 feet of ascent.

AW18 Editorial | Urban Jungle

Winter is never very far away at 66°North.

The Icelandic weather is infamous for being extremely unpredictable, offering different combinations of rain, wind, snow and sun every day. We’ve been challenging it for over nine decades; so we know a thing or two about versatility.

Our philosophy has always been that weather shouldn’t be an obstacle when it comes to going places. Our clothing is designed to be comfortable in everyday life but at the same time keep you prepared for the worst.

Tindur

Tindur Down jacket is a high grade classical Duck Down jacket fabricated in a very tough and endurable fabric. The AW18 version of Tindur is now featured in a new reflective material.

It was originally designed for the Icelandic mountaineer Leifur Örn. He was the first Icelander to climb the North side of Everest. He was equipped in 66°North clothing and among the items he wore was the super warm down overall that is basically overall version of this Tindur Down Jacket.

The jacket has a baffle construction which means within each striped square there are vertical interior walls which keep the Down fill from shifting. In addition the stitching does not go through the fabric so exceptional warmth is guaranteed.

Activity days 1
Even though Icelanders officially celebrated the first day of summer last week, they are still waiting for summer as usual.
 
This is why our activity line needs to be able to handle unpredictable weather. We use the best fabrics available, such as Polartec fabrics and Gore-Tex, to provide great breathability and water protection during high performance activities. That way you can stay active in wet and windy conditions without comprising in comfort.
