Snugpak was started by Brett Harris in the 1970s. 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. Before long, Brett was bringing his ideas of low weight and low pack size sleeping bags to a market that would be forever changed by this kind of innovation.
