Keeping Iceland warm since 1926

66°North was founded in 1926 by Hans Kristjánsson with the purpose of making protective clothing for Icelandic fishermen and workers braving the North Atlantic elements. Hans Kristjánsson lived in Suðureyri in Súganda fjörður in the west fjords of Iceland where weather conditions were harsh and the right clothing was a matter of life and death for Icelandic fishermen.

Hans was passionate about creating garments that would hold up to the harsh con ditions fishermen faced while trawling the seas of Iceland so he moved to Norway to learn how to tailor and sew fishermen’s clothing. When Hans moved back to Suðureyri he founded Sjóklæðagerð Íslands (Fishermen’s clothing factory of Iceland) now better known as 66°North. The company derives its name from the latitudinal line of the Arctic Circle which runs through Súgandafjörður where 66°North was founded in 1926.

Since 1926, 66°North has operated its own factories. Today, most of the production takes place in 66°North’s factories in Latvia, Europe. The company works closely with high quality fabric manufacturers to offer the most innovative and ver satile materials available. Trained mountaineers, outdoor professionals and rescue team members test our products before they are manufactured in our factories under close supervision. This is how we know that clothing from 66°North will keep you sheltered and comfortable during cold and wet winter days in the city and serve as a valuable ally when you decide to push your limits in the great outdoors.
