New Brand Spotlight: Snugpak

New to Harry’s this spring is a brand called Snugpak. Snugpak is a company based out of the U.K. and they produce top of the line sleeping bags, duffles, and other outdoor gear. Snugpak was started by a couple in the U.K. in 1977. The first product was an insulated body warming suit that could be worn under a dry suit. These days Snugpak is still an independent company, but the board of directors and made Snugpak an internationally known brand. The high quality workmanship and materials has landed Snugpak several government contracts and the products are used on every continent.

The Snugpak sleeping bags are really something! We are carrying 7 different styles, all with different ratings so there is surely one to fit your needs. The Snugpak Travelpak 1 is great for tropical climates or warmer weather. The temperature rating is 45°F to 36°F and is made with breathable, moisture wicking materials. One of the coolest features of this sleeping bag is the built in mosquito net to cover your face at night, keeping away any unwanted pests. Another great feature would be how easy it is to transport. The sleeping bag can be rolled up in to an easy to carry bag.sleeping bag

Other great products from Snugpak include their All Weather Survival Shelter and Jungle Hammock with Mosquito Netting. The shelter will come in handy when the weather becomes unpredictable out in the wilderness. Good against rain and snow. If you want to camp with just the bare minimum than the jungle hammock is a good choice. Super lightweight and easy to carry, all you need to do is find two trees to tie the hammock to. The mosquito net will protect you from all of those pesky bugs while you are sleeping.

If camping and hiking aren’t really your thing then Snugpak also makes duffle bags perfect for traveling. Check out the Subdivide Black Roller Travel Bag.

A Guide to Camping Essentials

We’re finally seeing some warm weather here in the Midwest and if you’re anything like us, warm weather and sunshine means being outdoors. Camping is a great activity that you can start in the spring and continue doing until the fall hits (as long as you dress warm and bring enough blankets). It’s also a great activity for families from an economical standpoint as it’s very reasonable and also loads of fun. From a timing standpoint, you can camp for a weekend easily or for longer if you have more time off!

Over on our website, we carry products from two brands in particular that will get your camping supply
