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.
This winter, we invited our Danish brand ambassadors Emilie Lilja and Mads Emil Møller to Iceland to allow them to experience firsthand how 66°North has kept Iceland warm since 1926.
In tours like this one, the Icelandic weather is always an unpredictable factor. A factor, which in this case, turned every plan upside down, yet in the end, showing the real character of the Icelandic weather.
66° NORTH’s first-ever partnership with a women’s ready-to-wear brand. The collection is made up by four pieces consisting of three jackets and one vest in earthy shades and different colorways of green, burgundy, and blue.
Having the right skiing gear is essential when hitting the slopes and the best way to make sure you keep warm is to wear the right layers, in the right order. That way, you'll be able to ski all day without giving it an extra thought.
All layers should be technical and breathable. We'll explain how to layer each one here below.
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 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.
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.
Our stores are now full of warm, waterproof and comfortable clothes that make the ideal Christmas gift.

In 1926, 66°North started producing protective clothing for fishermen braving the challenging elements of the North Atlantic ocean.
Today the company makes functional clothing without compromise for all kinds of outdoor activity with a strong reference to its fishermen and workwear heritage.
To keep delivering the highest quality of outdoor clothing, 66°North has collaborated with GORE-TEX to produce enduring products that maximize protection and comfort for the wearer.

The Iceland Women’s team has already made their debut in the World Cup in 2015.
