Snugpak are based in a listed mill built in the 1800s on the edge of the beautiful Yorkshire Dales. They are one of the last manufacturers of quality sleeping bags not only in the UK but also across Europe.
Snugpak sleeping bags, like the famous Snugpak Softie range, use advanced fabrics, design and loving construction to provide a sleeping bag that is supremely fit for purpose....there's a reason Snugpak bags are so popular with the military!
Snugpak’s reputation for innovation and quality design has culminated in the only sleeping bag in the world with a built-in LED light.
Their ground-breaking technology extends to survival kit and equipment for the Armed Forces - designed for the harshest conditions on the planet and including the Black Tactical, Desert Ops and Code Green Military range.
Their award-winning Chrysalis collection of sleeping bags for the extreme cold features a space-age fabric known as Reflectatherm to reflect heat back to the body to retain warmth – and is an industry first with a built-in reading light in the hood.
Snugpak started out in the 1970s as a two-man cottage industry, when a British couple spotted a trend for body warmers in the U.S. and realised there was a gap in the home market. Secretary Bryony Harris taught her deep sea diver husband Brett to sew…and together they began producing cold weather clothing in the shape of experimental insulated jackets and sleeveless vests.
Demand swiftly overtook their efforts to keep up with production, and with the addition of a team of outworkers the company swiftly began to grow. Output soared from 15 jackets a week to the launch of the famous Snugpak range of sleeping bags, and world-wide recognition followed - along with the accolade of winning the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade.
Snugpak’s early Softie sleeping bags became the smallest synthetic bags on the market, and today the many different models are still based on the original concept of low bulk, high warmth and small pack size – constantly upgraded with revolutionary new fabrics and insulation.
