Sasta Distribution in the UK
As the official last day of summer approaches and the start of Pheasant Season (1st October) looms, we couldn’t be more delighted to welcome Finnish brand, Sasta on board.
OUTDOOR EXPERTISE WITH 50 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE
Sasta was founded in 1969 by Urpo Saastamoinen, a lover of the outdoors and a hunter. Unable to find outdoor clothing that kept him warm, dry and comfortable, Saatamoinen created his own brand: Sasta. To date Sasta is still run by the same family who continue to make country clothing of the highest quality.
Sasta of Finland boasts a reputation based on a simple notion - that its products are renowned for being strong, while still being highly technical. The brand’s expertise starts where the marked roads and easy paths end - you can assure Sasta garments will perform in even the harshest weather that nature can throw at you, those conditions in which you need to trust your equipment 100%.
Sasta is guided by the old Finnish philosophy of respecting nature. This directs sustainable thinking in design and production, while underlining the old wisdom of Finnish outdoorsmen - equipping yourself properly when heading out into the wilderness. For decades Sasta’s product development and testing has involved direct feedback from local hunters, a relationship that ensures new innovation and the best, non-compromising clothing.
