Snugpak

Here at 53 Degrees North we are seriously proud of our Snugpak collection.

Snugpak is a true, pioneering British company, starting out as an original cottage industry in the 1970s, and developing into a worldwide brand. Based for over thirty years in the Yorkshire countryside, Snugpak’s success has endured through passing skills down through generations, while taking on the best that technology has to offer. ...while doing high risk repair work on oil rigs, Brett saw his American co-workers wearing body warmers, and knew there would be a great market for them in the UK. He set to work on the designs, making patterns on his kitchen table and learning to sew. He used his free weekends to sell his products on local markets whilst paying the mortgage with his day job.
