66 North Womens Skaftafell Gore-Tex Jacket
The Skaftafell Jacket from 66° North is the brands most versatile, all-season shell jacket constructed using state of the art Gore-Tex Infinium.Modern materials equip a heritage-inspired design with intelligent weather resistance: enough to handle Iceland, without compromising wearability. For a mix of style, comfort, and capability, there’s none better.
Behind Skaftafell is the top of the range Gore-Tex Infinium Windstopper technology. This windproof and highly water-resistant textile is designed to maximize breathability, preventing the clammy feeling often associated with shells where you sweat from the inside. A stretch-enabled nylon face ups Skaftafell’s agility. Two spacious chest pockets and three zipped internal pockets give ample room for belongings. Adjustment points on the hem, hood, and cuffs provide customized fit (or added weatherproofing, depending on the day.)
Skaftafell fits true-to-size. Those planning to pair with a puffy mid-layer might consider sizing up.

When possible, 66 North use recycled, upcycled, biodegradable, or organic natural fibers. However, function, necessity, and longevity come first. They would rather make a garment that lasts for a decade rather than one which is slightly more “sustainable” in the short term but has material which will break down and lead to waste after two or three years.
Polyurethane is a component that can be found in our fabrics, adhesives, coatings when waterproof performances are needed and in some stretch yarns. PU coatings enhance materials’ resistance to heat and moisture extending their life expectancy and consequently reducing the overall waste.
By keeping products in use for longer, we can reduce their overall lifecycle impact. Therefore, as part of the sustainability strategy, GORE-TEX aim to further improve the outstanding protective performance features of GORE‑TEX products and help people to expand their useful lifetime.
