What's behind the name?
The Primus Pilus, or First Spear, was the Senior Centurionof a Roman Legion.“Centurions were the guardians of Rome. At the height of
the Roman Republic there were over five thousand qualified
Roman Centurions in the Legions. To be a Centurionrequired that, in a mostly illiterate society, one be ableto read and write clearly, to be able to convey and createorders, to be capable of not only performing every skillof a Roman soldier but to teach every skill of a Romansoldier. Becoming a Centurion required intense physicalability, courage beyond the norm, years of sacrifice anda total devotion to the philosophy which was Rome.When Rome fell to barbarian invaders, there were fewerthan five hundred qualified Centurions. Not because Romehad fewer people but because it had fewer people willingto make sacrifices. And the last Centurions left their shields in the heatherand took a barbarian bride…..” (Ringo 08)FirstSpear
dedicates our work and our efforts to thosemodern Centurions who hold the line and ensure thatour way of life does not fall! It is an honor and a privilegeto directly support those at the tip of the spear!

design philosophy
The tactical equipment put forth by FirstSpear
is designed to function interactively as a fightingsystem. By utiliing the equipment as a system, an overall weight reduction, weight transferand operational scalability is achieved that is far superior to systems that fail to consider theultimate challenges that the User must face in an operational environment.What is integrated into the FirstSpear
product line is reflective of constant dialogue withUsers that are at the very tip of the spear. This includes but is not limited to elite organiationswithin the US Inventory as well as those of other friendly foreign nations that also feel evilis worthy of punishment.FirstSpear
achieves this relationship by putting complete focus on the User’s needs and theiroverarching requirements. Each subcomponent of the overall system integrates field feedback from concept development through rapid prototyping, and ultimately production and delivery.Impact to the overall weight, form, function and durability is considered in every detail downto fabric and hardware selection.Platforms, like the Sleeper
are designed with direct input from professionalUsers; built to be durable, lightweight, and highly functional. FirstSpear
incorporates performancedriven features that execute both as stand-alone items or integrated into an overarching individualequipment and personal protection system. This system will lower overall weight, reduce bulk offthe silhouette contributing to more effective signature suppression and take into account themanipulations required that will benefit operational enhancement.
remains focused on the User during approach, actions on and exfiltration from the objective,
wherever that objective may be and under any conditions. In short, BATTLEFIELD CAPABILITY!
