Creating top-end tactical garments for demanding professionals is our passion


In the early 2000s, Wild Things’ reputation for uncommon, lightweight, tough mountain gear caught the attention of U.S. Special Forces. For the first time, elite units could come to New Hampshire and work with our designers to build bespoke kits tailored to their requirements. Our Mission collection includes highly engineered technical garments and carry, stripped to the bare essentials, tailored for the rigorous performance requirements of those individuals involved in military operations, law enforcement, and security details. Our products are currently in the field with every branch of the U.S. Armed Forces.




“The tactical products and services provided by TwinNeedle are excellent. They are continually working closely with us to develop the highest quality and most tactically advanced gear available. Dealing directly with the manufacturer ensures the finished product is always exactly what we want. We never have to settle with mass produced “off the shelf” tactical gear. The team at Twinneedle have the ability and innovation to make almost anything we can imagine and are only too happy to keep working on it until we are 100% satisfied. Their quality and designs are as good as anything available on the market. What they offer us is the ability to do anything from one off custom pieces to larger quantities and they also provide a very fast turnaround on any repairs or modifications we need. ”.
