Royal Navy Skeleton Team

Aside from defending the British waters, the Royal Navy regularly take part in the high-speed Skeleton Bobsleigh sport, and we had the chance to find out all about their efforts on and off the track.

Why they work with us

Both Snugpak and the Royal Navy Skeleton Team have been working together for 15 years which shows our products are second to none. We’ve been supplying them with our kit through the cold winters ranging from the Mountain Leader 3 Jackets to the Elite Vests keeping them warm when it matters the most.

Ensuring the riders are kept warm during their event is key - keeping correct body temperatures is essential for optimum performance on the track. They love using Snugpak products as we're one of the few UK manufactured companies. And as Sid said, “The environment in which we work, we can’t have anything less than the best”.

Royal Navy Skeleton Team Visits Snugpak

We want to wish the team the best of luck for their next event in Austria; we've all got our fingers crossed for you!

The Visit

Both Bianca Di Resta and Timothy 'Sid' Lawrence joined us at the HQ in Silsden and met the whole Snugpak team. Darren took them on one of his excellent tours around the factory, teaching them about the different processes from the quilting of the sleeping bags, right down to product quality control.

They brought along their awesome Skeleton Bobsleigh and showed us the process of setting off down the ice. Despite the Bobsleigh weighing a hefty 35kg, the riders can reach up to 80 mph hitting around 5G’s at most bends!
