Gear and Inspiration

72 Hours in Iceland


‘‘ Seljavallalaug. Eldhraun. Hallgrímskirkja.

No, we didn't let a cat run across our keyboard, these are just a few of our pit-stops on a whirlwind tour of Iceland. If these names seem so exotic they verge on unapproachable, well, we're here to tell you that this adventure is more achievable than ever. During winter, round-trip flights to Reykjavík are under $300 from NYC. And here's a little globetrotter's secret: If you're flying to Europe, most airlines allow you to add a stopover in Iceland at no extra charge. It's the easiest way to check off a few bucket list items on a single trip. Not content to let the opportunity slip us by, we touched down in the Land of Fire and Ice fully-decked out with our latest delivery of gear and apparel for a 72-hour field test covering everything from a plane ride over a volcano to a midday hike on a 4,898 foot-tall glacier. Prepare yourself a nice snack of fermented shark (ok, maybe a hot dog instead—see pg. 37) and tag along for the ride. Then go set an alert for airfare prices.

Founded in 2011 by two ski buddies in their San Francisco apartments, Huckberry is a 21st century men’s retailer. We deliver the best prices on the coolest gear, inspirational stories, and a hell of a lot more to your inbox every week.

Proof

The Field Jacket, Upgraded

Heatseeker Jean

Inspired by arguably the most famous field jacket in history, Proof put a modern spin on the M-65, which is named after the year it was first introduced into U.S. military service. Designed to be your goto city jacket, the Proof Field Jacket is a smart mid weight option that pairs perfectly with a buttondown or sweater, and is versatile enough to take you from day into night, and work into weekend.

The Heatseeker Jean was designed for comfort in harsh conditions. Its interior NILIT yarns insulate and regulate your body temperature and its pure indigo Italian stretch fabric allows for a wide range of motion whether you're mountaineering or shoveling the drive. The ultimate cold weather pant has arrived. Shown here with: Danner Vertigo 917 $220

When assembling a crew for this whirlwind tour of Iceland, we needed travel-mates who’d be game for just about anything at a moment’s notice. Fellow San Franciscan Jordan Rosen fit that bill to a T. Taking a page from Clark Kent, he’s got a pretty unassuming day job but is prone to drop everything and venture across the globe for his role as a freelance adventure photographer.

Proof Storm Shield Parka in Navy $498

Kristján’s 1,100 years of family roots make him not only a bona fide local but also an excellent guide to Stykkishólmur.

Loading up the truck before before we tag along on a day in the life of a kayak guide.

As a local fisherman during winter and a kayak guide in the summer, Kristján has a deep connection to the landscape, history, and weather patterns of this breathtaking country. He was like a walking encyclopedia of the area. Not surprising, given that his family tree reaches back to the year 850 when his relative Hrafnkell Freysgoði was one of the first settlers to arrive in Iceland.

The burly SAR off-road vehicle, equipped to handle even the gnarliest Icelandic terrain.

Retired and vintage gear from rescue missions past.

Gestur was more than game for a ride on his Zodiac inflatable boat, pointing out local landmarks along the way.

Ask around about Gestur and the most-commonly offered description you’ll hear is “jackof-all-trades.” His connection to the land began early in life at his family’s remote farm. From there, he followed his love of nature, becoming a glacier guide, a Search and Rescue volunteer, an EMT, a one-time yoga instructor, and a restaurant co-owner. All by age 25.

Iceland’s Famous Pylsur In a country where sheep outnumber people, it’s only fitting that Iceland’s famous take on a classic fast food staple includes lamb. While the lamb-beef-and-pork hot dog, or pylsur, is ubiquitous at gas stations and ferry buildings across the island nation, Bæjarins Beztu Pylsur (literally translating to “the best hot dog in town”) is the most popular stand in Iceland. A flagship of Reykjavik since 1937, Bæjarins Beztu is rumored to braise their pylsur in beer and has served everyone from Bill Clinton to Metallica. Here’s how to make ein með öllu (one with everything) like an Icelander.

In Denmark, where temperatures can dip to -20°, they know a thing or two about staying cozy. The best remedy for a chill is to pull on a pair of Denmark’s own Glerups. Each slipper is handcrafted from toasty 100% natural Merino and Gotland wool and enhanced with rubber soles for outside wear.

Big adventures call for a little R&R — and what’s a little downtime without a cozy blanket? These US-made selections offer woolen comfort, US provenance, and, of course, the ultimate in nap-worthiness.

Field-ready Wristwatches Everyone’s heard that old Dad saying: “If you’re on time you’re late, and if you’re five minutes early you’re on time.” A solid wristwatch is key to keeping up with the day, and one that can stand up to the wear and tear of daily life — and take a little abuse on roads less traveled — is nothing less than crucial as far as we’re concerned.
