66°North Snæfell jacket Product News

© 66 North

Made from Polartec NeoShell®, the Snæfell shell jacket is waterproof to 10,000 mm and has an unrivaled ability to stop water and wind without restricting the release of excess body heat and vapor; and its dual adjustable swivel hood follows your movement, keeping your peripheral vision clear as you turn your head.

Snæfell Neoshell jacket is a versatile outdoor jacket that can be worn on pretty much any occasion. Highly breathable shell material, simple and classic fit, and reliable design.⁠ The name of the jacket is derived from the largest freestanding mountain in Iceland, located in the east of the country.⁠

The design of the jacket features a reduced amount of seams. This decreases the risk of water breaking through, improves the fit, and minimizes waste of fabric. Snæfell has a classic fit, with enough room for a mid-layer or light insulated jacket underneath and has an elongated back. 


  • Integrated dual adjustable swivel hood that follows movements and won't block peripheral vision.
  • Visor on the hood for additional comfort and protection and drawstring adjustment
