About Us

What drives us

Our mission is to increase the survivability and performance of America’s warriors on land, sea and air. Every piece of gear we make is engineered to enhance these two functions.

There is no greater satisfaction than that which comes with designing and producing products for men and women who serve our country. Whether that be for the US military, fire fighters, law enforcement or utility workers. We know from you that our products make a difference in your safety and performance on the job. That’s the juice that energizes us all, from the general office to the design staff to the manufacturing floor. It keeps us constantly innovating with our eyes always on product quality and customer service.

Unsurpassed quality

Ask any engineer that examines a piece of our clothing or gear and you will get the same response: “They could have cut costs in design and manufacturing”. Perhaps true, but our customers never complain about our over engineering—they only know in the long haul our gear doesn’t fall apart and it won’t fail them when the going gets tough.

Superior customer service

Ultimately it is all about you—we will do whatever it takes to provide you with best possible experience with your purchase and with your gear itself. From the moment of your first contact with us, until your order arrives at your door, we work to make your experience with us one that is enjoyable and one which you will look forward to repeating.

Cutting edge technology = innovative products

In 2005, we developed our patented Advanced Protective Fabric™ (APF) to meet the capabilities the US Military required in a fabric. No such fabric existed before APF, so it had to be engineered from the ground up. At Potomac Field Gear, research and development are critical to our primary objective: produce the best product on the market. Our product designs are specifically engineered to enhance the performance of those wearing them.

Advanced Protective Fabric Characteristics

Fire Resistant

Garment will self-extinguish once the source of ignition is removed – certified as non-melt and non-drip. Check out this burn test video.

Advanced Moisture Management

APF scored a very high 1855 on Moisture Vapor Transfer Rate testing – comparable to Under Armour®’s Heat Gear.

Anti-Odor/Anti-Microbial

X-Static technology dramatically reduces the warrior’s body odor and destroys a wide variety of harmful bacteria including Corynebacterium Diphtheriae, Pseudomonas Aeruginosa, Klebsiella Pneumoniae and Staphylococcus Aureus. This technology is effective for the life of the garment.

Anti-Static

The fabric can take a 5,000 volt charge and decay it to 500 volts in .01 second – enhancing the wearer’s safety in explosive, fuel-rich environments and protects equipment in sensitive electronic environments.

UV Protective

The fabric helps protect against prolonged UV radiation exposure from the sun.
