About Us

‘Progressive Modular Gear’ is the Hazard 4® motto. This means our products are designed to be at the forefront of innovation and technology. From functionality, materials selection, manufacturing techniques, through testing, quality-control and packaging, our customers can expect Hazard 4® products to be the most modern and cutting-edge available; And we are continuing to develop new lines everyday as we receive feedback from those in the field.

The name ‘Hazard 4®’ is inspired by a standard threat-classification index: ‘1’ low, ‘2 & 3’ moderate, and ‘4’ deadly. Whether created by the natural environment, industrial conditions, or man-made, our gear is designed to be the last line of defense for its owner when facing these. We hope it can make the small critical difference that tips the odds in his/her favor when no one else may be around to help. Or simply makes their day easier.

Brief History

Our parent company Civilian Lab® has a number of years experience manufacturing top quality outdoor adventure, extreme sport, and travel gear in innovative configurations and form factors. It’s had countless users asking over those years for tactical and professional versions of that gear. A number of our customers have in deed snipped off the iconic orange Civilian® tags and brought their products into professional field use and the combat arena. Whether at FBI headquarters in Quantico Virginia, a medevac helicopter service in the American Midwest, Iraq, or aboard an Airforce spy plane, Hazard 4® DNA has served there. This line is our response to the wishes of the selfless few putting themselves on the line as a daily part of their job, and extensively incorporates their input. We hope our customers will benefit from it in all their endeavors which involve our products.
