Made to brave the Arctic elements.
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 Parka is one of our most premium winter parkas and is designed with a focus on combining materials of the highest quality in a parka that can withstand extreme cold and rough conditions. It has constantly been improved and enhanced to meet the standards of guides, photographers and others doing everyday work in challenging conditions.
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.

Benjamin Hardman, arctic photographer
"The Jökla parka has long been my go to jacket for travelling in both Iceland and the Arctic. With its tough and waterproof fabric and thick lining, it’s been a trustworthy companion for my work as a photographer in these remote and freezing areas, especially in the winter season."
Heidar Logi, professional surfer
"I bring my Jokla Parka with me everywhere I go, whether I'm commuting out in the freezing cold, warming up after a surfing session or simply exploring the outdoors and want to make sure I'll be warm. Jokla Parka is my go-to parka from 66°North."
Valgerður Arnadóttir, professional fly fisher
Fishing is inextricably bound up with existence for Valgerður Arnadóttir, so regular traveling to find the best places to catch is a regular thing for her. Therefore, Jokla Parka plays an important role in her everyday life, providing shelter when it's most needed.
Asa Steinarsdottir, Photographer
"I got to know 66°North at about the same time as my photography interest really started. I spent more and more time hiking, walking glaciers and being outside. Being constantly challenged in those environments, 66°North was always the brand I wanted to wear due to their outstanding performance and since they’re a local company.”
Jakob Jakobsson, Architect
Jakob spent a year with his family in the town of Sisimiut in Greenland. Jokla Parka was the go-to parka whether it was picking up the kid from kindergarten or exploring Greenland‘s beautiful Arctic landscape.
The Arctic Trucks‘s team use Jökla Parka on their expeditions at the South Pole.
Jokla Parka, along with all 66°North products, is fully warranted against defects in materials and workmanship. If the product fails due to a manufacturing defect, we will repair the product without charge, replace it or credit it at our discretion.
Jokla Parka is available in both Men's and Women's fit. The men's fit is based on unisex design and therefore suits both genders. The woman's version is longer and in a feminin cut, while the fit of the unisex one is more regular and rather bulky. See here the green in unisex worn by a woman and a man.
Keep in mind that Jokla parka is slightly longer than a regular parka. The women's parka can be tightened in the waist with straps.
