Our mission is to empower you with simple and easy to use protection tools to keep you and your loved ones safe, in the event you find yourself, in an active shooting crisis. At Leatherback Gear™ we believe that when you are equipped with the proper tools and education, you become your first and best line of defense in any situation.
