KitBrix Origins by Robert Aldous, Director
I left the military after 10 incredible years and wanted to do something different, something challenging and to create something that addressed a problem and allowed me to give something back through its creation. The one thing I knew that I wanted was that feeling of being part of a fully functioning, all firing, small team who each have the specialisations but work cohesively as a group.

What materials do we use?
KitBrix strength comes from its material, craft in construction, stitching and attention to detail. Tarpaulin has multiple uses in industry and challenging environments due to its strength against the elements, i.e. wind, rain, or sunlight, and its texture, flexibility and valuable qualities for everyday use. Tarpaulins are often used during the build process to protect brickwork and masonry from weather damage. Tarpaulins are also used for a fly in camping, a drop sheet for painting, for protecting the infield of a baseball field, and for protecting objects, such as unenclosed road or rail goods carrying vehicles or wood piles. Demand for tarpaulins is high in many sectors for its notable strength and durability by UK Government Railways and other organisations. It is also used on outdoor constructions to provide some protection from the elements of nature. As a core ingredient for military and expedition kit and equipment around the world, we wanted to bring the highest quality tarpaulin to the demanding training sessions and lifestyle that swimmers, cyclists and runners experience.
