Our story, started as a powerful idea in Afghanistan 2007, frustrated at the substandard gear available at the time.
Our aim was simple, to provide better, clothing and equipment to the military.
Serving at the time as a Royal Engineer and mountain leader. I wanted to combine these two passions. Bringing the best of each and presenting them together to the military marketplace.
Defective equipment within the British Army within this period was common place. As it became centre stage for the worlds media. We knew we had to do something.
In 2008 we registered the company and started to trade online. The reaction to the type of clothing and equipment we were offering was humbling.
By 2011, demand had reached an all time high, and we opened a retail store in Colchester.
Today we share the same ethos as that day in Afghan 2007.
