ENTER ZO-ON ICELAND
ZO-ON's founder, an avid outdoors person all his life, tired of sports clothing that couldn’t protect against Iceland’s ever-changing weather conditions. Being wet and cold is not an option when hiking in the highlands. On a backcountry trail one afternoon he decided to develop a better way of making outdoor clothes, clothes that would keep active people drier and more comfortable, that could withstand Iceland’s climate.
WHATEVER THE WEATHER
Whatever the weatherbecame ZO-ON’s slogan for protective sports apparel that could deal with the climate challenges in Iceland. That was about 17 years ago.
