Heroes in Iceland

Slysavarnafélagið Landsbjörg is an Icelandic voluntary organisation that performs rescue operations in a challenging natural environment with unpredictable weather, stormy seas, volcanic eruptions and glaciers. The rescue workers need clothes that can cope with this challenging environment where durability and safety are crucial. We are proud that they wear clothing from Taiga.
