Company Profile

At SealSkinz our passion (some might say obsession actually) is to craft the finest waterproof accessories in the world. While waterproof will always be our #1, we also want to keep you protected from snow, sand, mud, dirt and anything else that can get in the way of doing your thing in the outdoors. To so many, accessories are an afterthought but to SealSkinz, they’re everything.

SealSkinz accessories have been to the top of Everest, braved the snowy winds of Antarctica, stayed dry on wilderness rafting trips in Alaska, and are trusted by the UK military. However, they’re equally incredible at keeping you comfortable while walking your furry friend, rushing on a brisk morning school run. To say they’re up for any weather challenge is kind of an understatement.

Teamwork

SealSkinz prides itself on a successful ‘teamwork’ culture with a shared belief that the business can move forwards most effectively when collaboration and cooperation are at the heart of everyone’s thinking, planning and decision making.

‘When teamwork becomes an intrinsic part of any organisation’s culture, everyone benefits – the company, the employee, and the customer”.
