Vel Tye doesn’t just make tactical gear, we make some of the best tactical gear in the business. It’s not enough to produce gear that’s functional and durable; we hold all our gear to the highest standards imaginable.

Here are three reasons you can trust you’re getting the best of the best when you buy Vel Tye products.

  1. By military, for military.

    Vel Tye was founded by a United States military veteran. After over 20 years in the service, Navy veteran Steve Herring understood the nuances of great tactical gear and equipment. It was his mission to create the kind of gear military men and women need to perform their jobs, and make it functional for law enforcement, first responders, and more.

    Vel Tye’s gear is built with military members in mind. Every stitch is designed to last a little longer, every VELCRO strap designed to grip a little tighter. The way we see it, if gear is good enough to be used by military members, it will also perform stateside when it matters most. At Vel Tye, the military standard is the only standard that matters.

  1. Better components make a better product.

    Tactical gear is only as good as the components it’s made from. Vel Tye’s engineers are constantly looking for innovative materials to improve the functionality, durability, and aesthetics of every piece of gear we produce. Excellent materials are the foundation of everything we do.

    From industrial-grade VELCRO to waterproof YUMA fabric, we use the best materials available for our products. As critical as it is for wearable gear like Hugger vests to be constructed of quality, long-lasting materials, Vel Tye knows it’s also important for auxiliary gear to perform, too. We never skimp on material quality; everything from our magazine carriers to weapons slings are produced to be the best.

  1. American made, every time.

    While some tactical gear suppliers source some or all of their gear from overseas manufacturers, Vel Tye products are always produced right here in the USA. From our factory in Virginia Beach, VA, one of America’s military capitals, Vel Tye is able to control every element of that goes into our equipment.

    American-made products are tougher than imported products for a variety of reasons. Quality control is higher from the get-go, and American manufacturing regulations ensure production follows stringent regulations throughout. We also believe in the pride that comes from using an American-made product, and in the benefits we’re bringing to the local community by basing our operations here on U.S. soil.

Vel Tye tactical gear is built tough to last. You should never have to worry about whether or not your gear will perform, especially when the stakes are high. Everything we do is centered around the idea of premium quality –those who put their lives on the line every day deserve the best.
