Behind the Name

national ski patrol dad

In 2015, LB Comfort LLC became Hug Patrol.  This new name is the result of the creative insight of Bridget Sprague, owner of Be Good Branding.  While visiting, she was inspired by the creations, also saw a picture of my Dad and was intrigued with the pin on his sweater.  While on her drive home she envisioned; “Hug Patrol”, “to bring comfort to those who need it the most”.  Thank you Bridget!

Lynne’s father was a member of the National Ski Patrol where he proudly adhered to the creed “service and safety.” Here at Hug Patrol we too believe in this creed and work hard to service our customer’s needs while creating safe, quality comforting products. This is the driving passion that keeps Hug Patrol designing and making innovative creations.
