66 North

Keeping Iceland active since 1926

For nearly 100 years, 66˚North has made life and activity possible where otherwise there would be none. 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 to going places. Our clothing is designed to be comfortable in everyday life but at the same time keep you prepared for the worst. 66° North is committed is to creating high-quality products for versatile usage with the mindset that they should last.


Through the longevity of design, function, construction, care, and desirability, 66˚ North expects our products to reduce the need for long-term consumption, whether bought new or second-hand.

66˚ North is a carbon-neutral business.
