From our repair shop in Iceland, 66˚North will repair any product we’ve ever made, whether it’s from a few seasons ago or anytime last century. This has been our promise to customers since Hans Kristjansson launched the company in 1926 from Suðureyri in the Westfjords of Iceland. When your customers are your friends, family, and neighbors, and their lives are at stake, it’s only natural.
66˚North also guarantees that it will take back any product at any time and ensure its recycling, or donation—whether done by ourselves or with the help of partners such as Red Cross.
Caring for your products
If well taken care of, then this can be an excellent and reliable article of clothing that can last for years. To maximize the wearability and maintain the characteristics of the garment we recommend following these washing instructions
In the 66°North workshop we fix the inevitable wears and tears of used products. We stock an archive of fabrics, buttons and zippers and will not only mend your garment but also do our very best to make it look as fresh as the day it bought.
66˚North guarantees that it will take back any product at any time and ensure its recycling, or donation—whether done by ourselves or with the help of partners such as Red Cross.
Nearly 5% of the Icelandic population takes part in the purchase of second (or third, or fourth) hand 66˚North clothing. You can buy used 66˚North products on this Facebook Group or from the Red Cross
Early 2016 we launched our “Indestructible” program and we asked our customers to bring in their worn-out 66°North products - or products in good shape but they no longer wanted to use it - in exchange for a discount of their next purchase. We evaluated the state of the product, repaired it if needed and gave it to the Icelandic Red Cross. We realized right away that product recycling was something we wanted - and needed - to make permanent at 66°North.
You can bring your old 66°North product to any of our stores and receive your discount. If we do not have stores in your country please contact us and we will give you detailed instructions of how you can ship us your product to our headquarters and receive your discount.
