Supporting veteran owned companies is very important. There are many of our honored service men and women who after getting out of the military decided to test their entrepreneurial muscle and ventured into the clothing and gear game.
If you are looking for high quality products look no further than these four very cool veteran owned companies. Keep in mind they all make it a point to give back to their fellow veterans by supporting a variety of causes and charity work.
So, next time you need a gift for someone you love, forget ordering from Amazon and stick to one of these veteran owned companies for a unique selection.
Nine Line Apparel
Nine Line Apparel is a brand that has been around since 2012. It’s named after the medevacs that tend to soldiers on the battlefield, the “nine line.” This is a lifestyle brand with a patriotic message behind everything they sell. A husband and wife team, Tyler and Angela, started the brand when Tyler was still on active duty. The products they sell range from clothing for men, women, and children to accessories for concealed carry firearms. Their products are strong, functional, and include some tactical gear. Everything is very pro-America and supports their Nine Line Foundation as well. You can also join their Patriots Club for new and exclusive designs each month.
Frag Out Clothing Company
Nicholas Franz is the creator of Frag Out Clothing Company. As a former Air Force member, he spent 13 years serving our country before taking the steps to run his own business. They specialize in men’s, women’s, and children’s clothing, some accessories, and cool gear like paracord bracelets and keychains. The company also supports a variety of non-profit groups geared towards helping veterans. And if you are curious as to what “frag out” means, it’s what a soldier says before they launch a grenade.
Combat Iron Apparel
This company located in Georgia is a veteran owned and designed brand. Combat Iron Apparel makes everything right at their Georgia warehouse, which is mostly apparel and hats for men, women, and children.
