Blue Grit recognizes, respects, and represents first responders, both for what they’ve sworn to do on the job, but what they do after they clock out. “Blue" is a nod specifically to law enforcement, but we have equal love for all military, fire, EMS, and any other patriots who love their country and support those who protect and serve it. "Grit" symbolizes the courage, resolve and strength of character, which all first responders must possess to perform their jobs successfully. The brand however, is by no means only for first responders. If you enjoy activewear with patriotic styling check out our products. Our mission is to provide high quality, unique products that are functional and comfortable, and that meet the needs of everyone, from extreme tactical athletes, to average joes.
On the owners:
Blue Grit was the brain child and was created by an active city police officer in Upstate New York. His professional experience includes: SWAT sniper, Criminal Intelligence, Academy PT Instructor, Field Training Officer, and Patrol Sergeant.
His inspiration to create Blue Grit largely came from a desire to bring support for first responders and fitness together in a unique and functional apparel line.
While Blue Grit has gone through some big changes this year, we are happy to say that Blue Grit is STILL owned and operated by not one, but two (married actually!) active Officers in Upstate New York.
They're professional experience ranges from K9 to Field Training Officers and Road Patrol Sergeant.
This duo is honored to take on the Blue Grit name and is dedicated to continuing to inspire and support all First Responders.
