About us The Kit Bag

The Kit Bag story begins in 1986 with humble, hopeful beginnings in Bungay, Suffolk, UK when Geoffrey Green and his eldest son Christopher, both ex-servicemen came up with the original Kit Bag business plan in the family living room.

Focussing on diverse and interesting but useful and functional products was the plan and originally the products offered were all military surplus items. All the items where bought from an agent who purchased directly from both the domestic and international military surplus markets. They were interesting times and it is difficult to comprehend the immense changes that retailing has gone through since the days of the retail high street to the online marketplace that we have today.

Geoffrey Green retired and in 1993 Christopher and Deborah Green (who joined Kit Bag in 1988) bought the business to Australia and since then Kit Bag has managed to succeed despite the many changes and challenges that have occurred in the retail market place - some changes for the good and some, well we will see!

One thing that will never change is our commitment to our customers. We have customers who have been dealing with us for 20 years plus and we are proud to still be carrying kit Bag forwards – in the famous words of our founding member Geoffrey Green we will “carry on old soldier “.

Kit Bag with its old fashioned but still relevant business ethos is embracing the future and adapting to the new ways of doing business. The 3rd generation of the Green family have arrived and are working with Kit Bag, their fresh vitality and ideas helping Kit Bag to embrace the future.

We are grateful to all the wonderful people we have had the pleasure of dealing with over the last few decades and for the many amazing moments experienced along the way. We look forward with enthusiasm and optimism to the future.

Regards

Christopher Green

Proud Supporters of "The Cruellest Earth Project" 

Kit Bag are proud to announce that as of June 2018 we are an official sponsor of Hugh Brown’s “The Cruellest Earth Project”, a $4M AUD project aimed at bringing attention to the world’s poorest miners who still use their hands to mine.  The project aims to bring greater awareness to the plight of these miners. 

Hugh travels the world documenting the lives of these brave, resilient people.  During these visits he lives like them, sharing their locations and hardships from the high mountains to the flat sierras.  As he keeps us up to date with his project via blog / video link he will also be sharing information on how Kit Bag clothing and equipment is helping him to be fully functional in these inhospitable environments. We look forward to sharing Hugh’s adventures with you.
