1948 Original Equipment
1948 Original Equipment has been conceived from experience, necessity and a desire to shape the future. Many great explorers, sportsmen and pioneers have made subtle modiﬁcations to their equipment to make tomorrow a little better. A group of friends, following in these footsteps, decided to do the same and 48 OE was born. We are a specialist company that provides equipment, clothing and gear for anyone interested in expeditions, travel and the great outdoors.
Our very own 1948 Land Rover inspired us to appreciate how good things can last. Our own travels have broadened an appreciation of nature, landscape and community. This and a feeling of responsibility steers our product selection. We understand that not everyone has a green agenda, but when we can, let’s do the right thing. We have chosen to power our ofﬁce and warehouse with green electricity and use where possible recycled packaging.
By buying products that will last and that can be repaired, we can all do our bit. Disposable fashion may have become a trend in some quarters – we think it is wrong and want to reverse this. We do not want to preach but just offer a way of ‘Thinking a little differently’.
