In early 2012 a concept was created which seemed so obvious, it sounded too good to be true. The gear market had been flooded by dozens of “Me Too” brands. Where was the focus on performance? How could we make a difference by not running with the pack? It was a risky move but like most things in life, no risk = no reward.
TPG BLACK™ made a commitment to start fresh – we created designs and concepts for products based upon the needs of our friends - the real end users in the field. Our team spent hours talking with law enforcement and military professionals, listening to the pros and cons of every other system on the market. We built samples, and then ran the gear in the field...and we ran it hard! Back to the drawing board we went, fine tuning and tweaking every aspect we could. That being said, we remain never satisfied! If you have ideas, questions, or observations about our kit, call or email us! We WANT TO HEAR from you!
Why Made in America?
A lot of people ask us this question with so many brands caving in to the offshore model for success. Our founder is a US Navy veteran whom, for most of his adult life, has worked tirelessly to serve his country. Growing up in a time when Made In America stood for something, he believed others would share that same passion.
Bringing jobs back to the US and raising the bar on quality gear became an obsession for him, which was contagious for the entire team. Countless sample after sample was made, tested, torn apart, and then back to the drawing board for yet another revision. One size does NOT fit all. One design does NOT work for all. Different end users require different solutions and with that focus, TPG BLACK ™ was born.
American Made – Mission Specific
We are not a huge factory with hundreds of employees, automatic cutting machines, and unlimited funds to throw at large bids and contracts. We ONLY sell D2C - direct to consumer. By staying small and making everything by hand, we can keep the costs down and pass the savings along to you - but please recognize that each order is custom made, and this takes time! We do not maintain an inventory of products where we can just pull something off the shelf and ship to you the next day.
Made in the USA at our Boynton Beach, FL facility with USA made fabrics (Berry Amendment Compliant), TPG BLACK™ proudly stands behind its products by offering a lifetime warranty on all nylon products. We DO provide custom nylon production solutions for a small, select group of Tier 1 companies. For that reason, our facility is not open to the public. If you would like to visit us, please call or email to arrange a tour.
