Why N1?

Why Nobile N1?

Why Nobile N1? The Svalbart Islands brand, which is intrinsically linked to the Norwegian islands of the same name, has chosen to pay homage to a charismatic pioneer by dedicating its most representative item to Umberto Nobile. Do you know who Umberto Nobile was? He was a great celebrity of Italian aviation, a general, an explorer and engineer who represented Italy on an important expedition. It was on 12 May 1926 when Nobile, together with Amundsen and Ellsworth, travelled on board the first airship to fly over the North Pole. This semi-rigid airship was built in Italy by the engineer Nobile himself and was named Norge (N1).

Jacket for urban and outdoor environment

Why Nobile N1 as the name for a practical and modern technical-sports item? This iconic jacket from the Svalbard Islands brand expresses concepts such as adventure, exploration, technology, extreme conditions and finding one’s limits. It is a perfect item for both urban and outdoor environments in any type of weather. One of its many innovative hi-tech accessories is a multimedia pocket made of Tecnostan fabric, which reduces electromagnetic radiation towards the body by 60%. Nobile N1 provides perfect cover even in icy conditions, guaranteeing the wellbeing and safety of those who wear it. Comfortable and practical, the jacket keeps devices such as a smartphone and smartwatch protected and shielded from the elements and at a constant temperature, to prevent the batteries from discharging too quickly and prolong their use.
