NORDISK X SAMSØE SAMSØE
This season, we’ve teamed up with the Danish fashion brand Samsøe Samsøe to bring out the city lifestyle into the outdoor universe.
This accessories collaboration consists of various products that are perfect for an escape to the outdoors, whilst keeping an urban edge.
Through long-lasting products and high-quality craftsmanship, we’ve focused on the values we share as the roots of our collaboration.
Introducing the new ultralights...
Small. Ultra light. Packable.
Hypothermia can ruin any adventure. So when every gram counts, you can rely on us to keep your core warm and your shoulders light. No products on earth can match these on heat to weight ratio.
– Home of the Down Specialist
This summer we could finally cut the ribbons for our new 'Die Manufaktur' in Görlitz, Germany. For more than 20 years this lovely city has been home of our quality handmade down sleeping bags.
“Die Manufaktur” is a completely renovated building with modern facilities, which will not only be home to production, but also to development and repairs of all Nordisk products, including sleeping bags, tents, jackets, bags and accessories in the Nordisk Care & Repair center.
By opening “Die Manufaktur” in Germany, we make a strong statement on our commitment to sustainability and community craftmanship.
Handmade in Germany
We take great pride in our history, so we place great emphasis on maintaining our tradition of handmade sleeping bags at our factory ‘Die Manufaktur’ in Görlitz, Germany. The high-quality standard is the reason why our products will suit your needs – no matter if you’re in the cold Arctic, walking the Camino or climbing the highest peaks in the world.
“We still produce by hand in Germany to make sure the quality is the absolute best”
What is down? Contrary to common belief, down and feathers are not the same thing. In fact, the expression “light as a feather” would have been a much stronger statement if it were “light as down”, as down is much lighter, softer and better insulating.
Ethical Down Code
Our Crystal Down® naturally abides by the RDS – Responsible Down Standard, but our internal regulations go beyond those required by RDS and the EDFA – European Down and Feather association. For decades, Nordisk has followed our own Ethical Down Code to ensure animal welfare and traceability.
100% responsible and traceable European down
It's all about quality
We have more than 30 years of expertise in quality down – producing equipment for expeditions exploring the coldest areas of the world and therefore, all our Y by Nordisk products are filled with Crystal Down® – a selection of the absolutely finest and most voluminous European down.
Our secret is long term commitment towards excellence and competence, high degree of workmanship and filled with the finest European down.
From the very early days, we have regarded down as a highly valued core component. It has been a constant procedure for us to understand and work towards the lowest possible impact on the nature around us. In the nineties we developed our own system to ensure traceability of the down, and to simply ensure our supply chain was of the highest quality – while at the same time ensuring animal welfare. Each of our Y by Nordisk product is labeled with a unique number that reveals animal species, origin and quality of the down.
And so, each single piece of Crystal Down® is many things, but first and foremost European origin, traceable and washable.
This is why we are the down specialist.
What’s your passion?
We know that all kinds of people make great use of our products every day. People for whom the feeling of exceptional quality serves very different purposes; from luxury glamping to ultralightweight expeditions.
Finding new gear should be fun, inspiring and relevant. So we made it easy for you.
Which is your Nordisk universe?
A pact with Nature
Nature is everything to us.
It is the inexhaustible source of inspiration and the
exhilarating framework of any great adventure.
For everything that nature gives – we pay it back.
So that YOU can explore the planet, leaving only
your footprints behind.
