Rugged tactical gear and clothing that can protect and withstand harsh conditions is essential for military personnel. Keeping morale up for servicemen and women in combat or training is also important. In 2006, a military and tactical aficionado known by his friends as “Monkey” began using his art and design skills to create morale patches. He was one of the first to put professional design effort into patches, and what started as just a hobby quickly grew into a successful business. He uses his proficiency in video game art and design to create gear for military personnel, law enforcement professionals and tactical enthusiasts. Monkey found that art could be his way to get involved with the military and support servicemen and women. At TacticalGear.com, we offer a number of Mil-Spec Monkey patches, hats and T-shirts.
