About

The first time ever on Kickstarter - professional grade tactical outerwear built to military standards and made available to consumers for everyday wear. Our Responder Outerwear is tough enough to climb a mountain in, but stylish enough to thrown on and grab drinks with friends downtown.

As Seen On...

 

 

 

 

AMABILIS is set to break new ground and be the first performance lifestyle brand to offer half sizes - we call it THE .5 FIT. For all of you that so often fall between sizes, this is a truly innovative solution. 

The Responder Jacket is the anchor of our outerwear system.  Built to last a lifetime, this will be the LAST jacket you'll ever want to own.

As perfect a jacket for commuting to work on the subway as it is hiking your local trails.

THE DAVE JR. DUFFLE 

Last year we successfully launched The DAVE Jr. Duffle 2.0 on Kickstarter which you can check out by - CLICKING HERE

The bag received amazing reviews and helped successfully launch our brand. For those who missed that campaign we want to give you a chance to get the bag at the "Super Early Bird" price, and in an exclusive NEW color we're launching with this campaign.

The bag has been updated in a few areas, making it the best DAVE Jr. Duffle we've ever made available! 

Here are a few perks we're adding to the campaign 

Stretch Goal #1

 

On top of Brian Abrams 25+ years of military/tactical apparel and gear experience, this is not his 1st Kickstarter. Last year he raised close to $100K for his bag the DAVE Jr. which was nicknamed "The World's Toughest Duffle Bag".

Aside from being an awesome duffle bag, many of his experienced backers from that campaign told him it was the best run Kickstarter they have ever backed! We promise to deliver that same type of customer satisfaction for our 2nd campaign.

DAVE Jr. Kickstarter Backer Quotes

As Seen On...

 

Here is what you can get with your support on Kickstarter...

COMBOS 

 

It began 25 years ago with mountain and equipment training to elite military forces which included Navy SEALS, Special Forces, Army Rangers, Marine RECON and more. The list goes on, but I have been blessed through the years with a career of helping those who help and protect us. In a natural evolution, my training of these units quickly crossed over to apparel and gear design looking to fill voids with the highest performance in design and materials for those who needed it most and were somehow without. I soon was a specialist in designing apparel and gear to meet the most demanding needs of military, tactical professionals and first responders...I wanted to protect those who protected us. There is no market anywhere which put greater demands on form, fit or function, let alone durability. I was continually challenged with pushing the envelopes of design and development of materials which together could help in enhancing the warfighters survivability. 

My designs have been used throughout the world. They have seen duty in every environmental condition imaginable...from the deserts to the poles and from the mountains to the sea, wet or dry, hot or cold. I design with an obsessive compulsion for functional performance, great fit and extreme durability...failure in this world is not an option. As an endurance athlete myself, I live, breathe and put all my products through their paces personally...I am the Chief Product Tester.

With a good understanding of performance textiles and functional design, I have managed to bring about change and new trends in the way the modern warfighter dresses for battle and sleeps outdoors. I have been rewarded with this paradigm shifting approach with numerous patents and some of my designs have been selected to protect thousands of soldiers on and off the battlefield. 

After not being able to sit still in an early retirement, I quickly realized I had unfinished business, I wanted to bring these same concepts and principles to the every day consumer for the first time...AMABILIS was born. No question I would follow the same path of using premium materials fused with functional design that always has an edge, but it’s bringing an industry first fit platform that will truly set us apart. AMABILIS is ready to break through the status quo and disrupt traditional sizing as we know it today. I am thrilled to be the first to bring half sizing...we call it The .5 FIT. It’s a solution to a very old problem for those who fall between sizes. Finally you don’t have to settle for a little to small or just a bit to big. Your in the middle and we get that!

Risks and challenges

If the RESPONDER Tactical Outwear System is successfully funded, we will immediately place purchase orders with our manufacturing and supply chain partners. Our manufacturer and supply chain partners have worked long and hard to help position AMABILIS for success and they are poised and ready to begin performing upon receipt of our notice to proceed and purchase orders. The funding will be used for material acquisition, production and fulfillment.

Although well experienced in the process of bringing product to market in a timely manner and having the benefit and learning experience of a very successful Kickstarter campaign under our belt, there is always the chance for unplanned circumstances that arise during materials or product production periods. Our past experiences will help in recognizing problems and resolving the issues quickly and efficiently. We are a premium brand with the highest quality in our manufacturing and supply chain partners and are hyper-focussed on delivering a best-in-class product. We also know first hand from our last Kickstarter, just how important frequent and truthful communication is with our backers.
