Through Adversity


Born from

We're ex-uk special forces

We have spent the majority of our military careers within Special Forces.  We've endured some of the world's most arduous environments in extremely demanding circumstances. ThruDark was born out of our constant requirement for the best clothing and equipment to assist us in this ‘Endeavour Through Adversity'.

As Special Forces, we were equipped with the highest specification kit and clothing for the operation at hand.  However, we were always critical of the way it performed and were at the forefront of developing it to meet our demands.


Designed to
be unstoppable

Relentless pursuit of excellence

Our uncompromising quest for perfection means we work with the most talented designers on the planet to develop products utilising the most advanced fabrics and technical features available.

We test everything ourselves and if it isn't the best gear we've ever used, we're not interested in selling it. It needs to look amazing and perform even better, surviving on operations without a
moment's hesitation.

We are constantly developing a range of carefully selected garments to be utilised in Air, Sea & Land environments.
