Hi and thanks for visiting our Terrevista Trails website. You might be asking why we’re called Terrevista when the bulk of what we sell are JagBag Silk Sleeping Bag Liners – it’s a good question.
JagBags were originally invented in New Zealand by a lady called Jackie Ann Gardiner. For many years Jackie sold them all over the world from her JagBags website. I bought a JagBag as a customer back in 2008. I was so impressed with how warm it kept me in the hills of Vietnam that I contacted Jackie and asked if I could sell them in the UK and Europe. Happily she said yes.
I’d just started a travel website called Terrevista Trails and decided to sell JagBags on-line through it.
A few years later, Jackie decided to retire and I bought the business from her. So, I own JagBags and they’re still produced by a small, highly skilled and motivated team in New Zealand – although I’m based in Scotland! I always intended to set up a JagBags UK site but never quite managed to get round to it – life, travel and stuff in general always seemed to get in the way.
However, as the original Terrevista Trails site is now over 10 years old (I know – prehistoric in internet terms) we will be launching a new JagBags UK site - date still to be decided. Until it arrives though, the full range of JagBags are available from the Terrevista Trails website for customers all over the world.
We’ve also started selling the Deluxe and Standard models on Amazon in the UK.
No-one else makes JagBags and no other company sells them - we alone make them and spread the JagBag love.
We’ve been asked many times why the name JagBags – another good question. When she came up with the idea for them, Jackie didn’t employ any fancy branding agency to invent a name. She simply used her own initials, J A G. She’s a clever lady.
