In emergency circumstances such as natural disasters or pandemics, the public needs to know that local authorities will be there for critical protection and assistance. In order to ensure they are prepared, military members and first responders need equipment that is dependable and comfortable in highly demanding conditions and can be produced in large volumes on time. This is why TMH Trading sought out VELCRO® Brand hook & loop fasteners for its CLAWGEAR tactical apparel and accessories.

CLAWGEAR, based in Austria, is constantly developing and improving the technology and design of its tactical accessories. Durability, reliability and quality are not negotiable. They are mandatory.
VELCRO® Brand Fasteners Ease Supply Chain Complications & Enhance Performance for the Military
Providing tactical accessories and custom apparel to all corners of the globe can be challenging. Responding to new challenges reported from the field, CLAWGEAR develops innovative solutions quickly. The internal R&D department enables them to go from first drafts and concepts to the finished product at their own tailor’s shop.
CLAWGEAR needed reliable, fire retardant, fasteners for its equipment bags and military jacket pouches. The company turned to VELCRO® Brand Military Solutions to deliver quality products from nearby manufacturing locations in Europe, reducing lead times and complications with imported goods.
These lightweight, flexible fasteners reduced bulk on the overall product while maximizing functionality. The high life cycle means the fasteners can be used many times over, even in harsh outdoor conditions. These factors ensure performance and comfort for the end user.
Cobranding Hang Tags Reinforce CLAWGEAR Product Quality for the End User
According to a spokesperson at CLAWGEAR, “Velcro Companies managed to solve a very complex problem and did not give up. The specifications we provided were fully implemented, and the colors were a perfect fit. Other producers promised solutions but gave up when the first difficulties appeared. The team at Velcro Companies accepted every challenge and delivered on every promise.”
For additional reassurance for the end user, CLAWGEAR included a cobranding hang tag on their accessories because they felt that the VELCRO® Brand logo verifies the quality of ingredients in the product.
