In 1926, Hans Kristjansson found 66°North in hopes of creating garment to withhold extreme weather conditions of Iceland. Originally built for Icelandic fishermen trawling the Icelandic seas, 66°North clothings have challenged the great outdoors for nine decades. Versatility and functionality are at the brand's core to withstand unpredictable weather conditions. Its fabrics and designs have passed extensive research and experiments-tested and endorsed by mountaineers, outdoor professionals and rescue team members. Whether it be a casual stroll around the city or a hike up to the wild, let the weather be the last concern for your travels when equipped with 66°North pieces such as the POLARTEC® fleece vests and jackets, or tech shell trousers.
