About Brigantes

Brigantes' Ethos

Brigantes is dedicated to taking the combined knowledge of the outdoor industry and bringing it to the military user.

The military is required to work in the most demanding of environments. It is here that we believe that the top brands in the outdoor industry can provide the best advice and designs that will reduce weight and increase performance.

  • Top Brands
  • Quality Equipment
  • Best Prices
  • Impeccable Service

The brands we use are the best at what they do. With such a long family history in the outdoor industry we are in a privileged position to hold close relationships with all of the top manufacturers and help them understand the challenges posed by the military as well as enable the military to understand the outdoor industry.

Brigantes is founded on a very strong ethical base and is insistent on providing completely transparent advice to suppliers and customers in the belief that real success can only be achieved and maintained with this mindset.

Ultimately our aim is to improve the operational effectiveness of the military’s key assets: its personnel.


Our Story

From a dream to improve issued kit for the military, a business was born. A business that cared about the products being provided to our armed services.

An ex regular Royal Marine had a desire to shake the original buying patterns of the military to the core. To disprove the belief that established companies, within the defence industry, were the only option when considering what should be worn by the military. That you only get the best kit by paying an extortionate price. From over decades of experience growing up in the outdoor industry, he knew this wasn’t the case.

In 2014, he began this astronomical task. Knocking on gate after gate, attempting to meet with key people to demonstrate amazing kit available at a fraction of the cost of what they were paying. To test established biased views and buying patterns of the military. They began to listen.

The next year saw two new partners join the team to assist in the sales and management of Brigantes. Both of them had previous involvement with the military and were also passionate about what Brigantes was trying to achieve. This enabled Brigantes to grow further and as its exemplary reputation grew so did it’s sales and ultimately the team.

The military were beginning to see that budgets could be spent in a much more effective way. Better kit of a higher quality was being bought with less money. Delivery times were accurate and excellent customer service kept people coming back. Military units overseas, heard about the great work achieved by Brigantes and because of this interest Brigantes International was born.

Fast forward 4 years and Brigantes is the thriving business you see now, continuingly going from strength to strength. Still with the same passion and drive to give the men and women on the ground the best quality kit available.
