“Necessity – the mother of invention.” Sealskinz is a creation of necessity, it’s about the need to be first out and last in, the need to defy the outdoors, the need to defy the cold and the wet, the need to perform, the need to protect.
If you think about it, in the outdoors the “Achilles heel” is in fact an Achilles; foot, head, ear, finger, or toe and this is where we are vulnerable, this is where we need protection.
This necessity created Sealskinz, the first laminated sock, keeping wet out and warmth in, Sealskinz three-layer patented sock broke the mould, Hats and gloves followed using the same technology.
An Endurance Accessories brand was born and Britain welcomed a new combatant into its obsessive war with the weather. More than a company, Sealskinz is a collection of talents bound by a single obsession. “Whatever the weather, whatever the activity, our purpose is to enable you to go further, go longer, leave first and return last.”
At Sealskinz® we have over thirty years' experience in developing and manufacturing endurance accessories. From our conception we’ve worked in partnership with some of the world’s greatest athletes including mountaineers, explorers, cyclists, skiers, runners, sailors, horse riders & all forms of mad ultra-event teams and individuals, to ensure our products deliver the very best in comfort and performance, to enable you (and all the other Sealskinz wearers) to defy the great outdoors.
