If you’re loading up a combat kit, duty belt or bug-out bag, Rothco supplies the military-grade gear that will keep you prepared. Rothco started as a small operation selling used clothing and WWII Army surplus in New York City in 1953. As the used supplies ran scarce, Rothco began manufacturing military gear and grew considerably. Now operating out of a 120,000-square-foot factory, Rothco produces military, outdoor and survival apparel and gear. As the company has added clothing lines and products, it remains firmly rooted in its military heritage. All Rothco supplies pack the power and reliability of gear ready for combat, making it a go-to for public safety professionals, outdoorsmen, military personnel and anyone preparing for extreme situations.
