About Nomad


Welcome to NOMAD!

“NOMAD is a local brand with a global appeal.” Many, many people know the NOMADbrand, but few realise NOMAD was born and raised in a little Dutch town called Zevenaar.

In 1965, a Swedish company developed a new production line for synthetic quilts and sleeping bags in the Netherlands. They combined the words polyester and down, and called their company Polydaun. Their products were colourful, contrasting their competitor’s limited palate of green, blue and brown. Quickly, they established the biggest production line for sleeping bags in Europe. Keen business sense and an original way of working gave them an edge that pushed them to the top of their industry.

This sort of innovation and free thinking gave birth to NOMAD just a few years later  by developing the world-famous 3D Polarsoft filling to produce compact, lightweight and affordable sleeping bags.

And so NOMAD was born!

From our early days as a sleeping bag production company to our recent years as a marketing sales company, the essence of our organisation has stayed strong. We are nomadic: fully independent and always on the move to meet any adventure that awaits us.

We are the creators of premium travel equipment (sleeping bags, mats, tents, bags and outdoor clothing). We believe good products need to go on many trips, year after year. Four decades later, many of our early products are still loyal travel companions today.

The world is our playing field. We facilitate and stimulate our customers from around the globe to seek and cherish unconventional adventures. Small or big, close by or far away. Unique and memorable experiences are just around the corner. Use your imagination and let our gear be your guide.

See you there!
