Propper 50th Anniversary
Over 50 years. Over 120 million garments made. And we’re not done.
What started in 1967 as a single contract to make the iconic white Dixie Cup hats for the Navy turned into five decades of dedication and hard work as we grew to become one of the largest single providers of US military apparel in the country. Along the way, we branched out to serve the needs of the law enforcement and public safety communities, as well. This year, we proudly celebrate 50 years of providing outstanding military, law enforcement and tactical apparel and gear to folks like you who understand what it takes to get the job done right.
All defined by precision, durability, comfort, and style. We don’t just make the best gear out there. We make it right. RIGHT TO THE CORE.
