    Awesome company and awesome products.

    I used a bunch of their stuff back in my WWII living history days – and even jumped one of their complete 506 PIR ensembles into La Fiere drop zone for the D-Day Anniversary in 2004.

      I would have seen you from the ground while dressed in my ATF jump suit, saw the C17 drop near Ste Mere Eglise too. That was one scorching hot week, the weather was fantastic.

    Great company and love the owner’s attitude! I got a tanker jacket from them that has been my favorite jacket the last 5 winters.

    Been a big fan of At the Front since about 2006, although I haven’t actually purchased anything from them. It’s even still a bit too expensive for my needs, but they are definitely an industry leader.

    My 11 year old has an a school assignment to pick a historical figure to depict as part of a wax museum setting. He chose Dick Winters from the Band of Brothers series. I bought him the “inexpensive” paratrooper uniform and the musette bag in order to support his character choice. All the items far surpassed my expectations and should last him for a number of years. I still enjoy perusing their site although I have purchased what I need for the time being.

    You should read the “Daily Rant” section. Pure comedy especially for anyone who has worked customer service/retail before.

    Great company to work with! The owners ongoing rant about “Khaki” is classic. Hopefully they can find a new supplier for their outstanding repo boots.

    compared to what they had to work with back then… we’re spoiled.
