Protecting those who serve


Vel Tye designs and manufactures state-of-the-art tactical gear and accessories, including our patented Hugger Tactical Vest system. We also sell NIJ-Certified Level IIIA armor that is manufactured in-house. It’s compatible with our Hugger systems or can be used with any other soft-plate model tactical vest. Every Vel Tye product is Berry Amendment Compliant and 100% Made in the USA.



Purchasing nearly 600 trauma kits from Vel Tye was simple. They made a specific design and gave us a more than fair price. Vel Tye provided us quality equipment which I am totally comfortable providing to the public who trusts us to deliver the best.

The Guys/Gals at Vel Tye worked extremly fast and efficiantly to help me produce extremely accurate gear. Definitly looking forward to working more with everyone in the future.

I have been a loyal Vel Tye customer since 2013 and continue to be each time I close, cinch, buckle and wear my Vel Tye gear. Working directly with the company and staff made the overall experience great. They clearly take pride in what they do.

I have regularly bought IFAC pouches from Vel Tye since 2013. They offer better quality products at fair, market value prices. Vel Tye is one of the best companies I work with on a regular basis.
