Gear Perroz Designs Ryan Houtekamer February 13, 2016 I have been good friends with the owner of Perroz Designs since before his company started. Knowing Milan, I assumed from the everything would be made like some Skynet enabled CNC machine would be stitching and assembling it. He has since developed more than a few different products, and you might have seen some of them at other peoples booths or in their photos. For instance, he’s done laser cut patches for Blue Force Gear, Redback One and others. When it came time for us to get some custom RECOIL staff patches (like the one in Britila39’s picture above) I knew just who to contact. He made these and several other for Redback One. Jason Falla is routinely wearing them when training. He even made this awesome one for Eric over at Soldier Systems Daily. Perroz Designs laser cuts patches from one of the many patterns and fabrics they stock. They then affix it to a backing of your choice (glow, IR or SOLAS). They even make these little mini United States Flags. Or how about this Devils Brigade Patch that you might have recently seen some CSOR guys or Perhaps some dudes in the Arcteryx catalog photos wearing them. Milan White-Garnet, the proprietor of Perroz Designs. He also has some other great products like his Low Profile Slick Plate Carrier which is in use by almost all my friends who use plates. If your looking for a cheaper option Perroz also has minimalist version of their carrier although with the exchange rate these are very afforable.

No great philanthropist in history could have done what they did without the money to do it. At the heart of “the American dream” is the entrepreneur driven small business.
