It was as far back as the late 1970s and prior to the internet, that I first heard of the brand Snugpak being discussed amongst senior outdoor activity colleagues. During those early days, I recall hearing that the kit was receiving great reviews from trusted sources and it was probably their experiences using it, that made me decide to pay them a visit. There was also another reason; the kit was manufactured in Yorkshire, Great Britain and only 30 minutes or so from my home.
On my first visit, many years ago, it came as no surprise that I was met by friendly, helpful and informative staff, all of whom, listened and I recall being amazed how driven the staff were and saw for myself, the care that was taken in the design and manufacture of their products. It was probably a combination of all these aspects that made me realise just how good their kit was.
Since that first visit, it is fair to say that I became “inspired” and have actively promoted Snugpak wherever our clients venture throughout the world. Much of the equipment is utilised during our courses; indeed, the ever-useful Response Pak is the basis of a short-range tracking kit, currently being tested by special operatives in the field. From the searching and survival perspective; there is simply no other product that suits purpose better, both professionally or with civilian use. For anyone who ventures outdoors, I can attest, Snugpak equipment is always innovative, it has multiple uses, it is manufactured robustly and when you need it, it is reliable.
I still have my first ever Snugpak jacket and heavy duty arctic kit and it still gets used. Remarkably, it still manages to keep me dry and warm even when slightly wet, so thank you Snugpak, we are proud to be associated with you and look forward to synergy between our products.
