What’s the best way to make protective gear for law enforcement and military professionals? This is the question that drives Shellback Tactical. Michael Wratten founded the company in 2003 after serving as a police officer for 18 years. His years in the field made him aware of the constantly changing needs of tactical operators, and with his company, he wanted to supply protective gear that would adapt to their ever-changing demands. In 2012, Shellback Tactical gear was approved for use by the Los Angeles Police Department, a testament to the company’s cutting-edge designs and durable materials. Made exclusively in the U.S., you can’t get gear tougher than Shellback Tactical.
