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 created 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.
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.
