Dedicated to equipping those who commit their lives to serving others.

Over 50 years. Over 120 million garments made. And we’re not done.

What started in 1967 as a single contract to make the iconic white Dixie Cup hats for the Navy turned into five decades of dedication and hard work as we grew to become one of the largest single providers of US military apparel in the country. Along the way, we branched out to serve the needs of the law enforcement and public safety communities, as well. This year, we proudly celebrate 50 years of providing outstanding military, law enforcement and tactical apparel and gear to folks like you who understand what it takes to get the job done right. 

All defined by precision, durability, comfort, and style. We don’t just make the best gear out there. We make it right. RIGHT TO THE CORE.

Authentic
From design to delivery, we’re driven by good people making really good gear. If it’s anything else, it isn’t ours.

Deliberate
We’re calculated when it comes to what we make, how we make it and who we make it for – a difference you can feel in every stitch, every seam and every pocket.

Responsive
Like our gear, our flexible service, fast shipping and product customization are designed to bring you more than you’d ever expect.

Proven
We’ve been the leading gear and apparel supplier for the U.S. Department of Defense, having met their evolving needs for 50 years.

Our Design Lab

From design to delivery, we’re driven by good people making really good gear. It’s a difference you can feel in every stitch, every seam and every pocket. And it all starts at our Design Lab, located at Propper headquarters in St. Louis, Missouri.

This 4,000-square-foot think tank is dedicated to the research, development and design of new products. Here, we transform gear concept sketches to finished prototypes that feel as authentic and durable as the real thing. From there, our product development and global sourcing departments work hand-in-hand to bring our biggest and best ideas to life.
