HWI Gear, Inc is a family owned and veteran operated business with over 30 years of experience in designing and manufacturing duty and tactical gear for law enforcement and military users.

Our Story – Better By Design

HWI was created after Bill Hatch had left a previously successful glove manufacturer as owner to focus on his family and love of life.  But the time was right for Bill and his two sons to jump back into the industry when launched HWI Gear, Inc as both a glove designer and manufacturer but also a tactical/duty gear company as well.  As a family team they’ve developed designs and processes that has allowed them to have the honor of supplying the US military with gloves as well as service the NYPD with duty gloves as well. Proudly employing American manufacturers to fulfill orders and based out of Colorado HWI Gear, Inc has successfully cultivated a reputation with their customers of quality and responsiveness.

From CEO to end-user HWI Gear, Inc receives feedback with open ears and critical minds to figure out how their products and gloves can be even better.  Trade shows are an opportunity where HWI Gear, Inc is able to find new material sources and fabrics as well as shake hands with people they have only met virtually.  As a family owned business all feedback is digested with sincerity and a focus on delivering an even better product each iteration.
