Meet Kitanica: Exoskeletons for Humans

Kitanica, “Exoskeletons for Humans”, manufacturers some of the most rugged and interesting  jackets and pants on the market. They are probably the farthest thing from “grey”, but they are very “tacticool”.

About The Company

Kitanica, named after an insect’s exoskeleton, was started in Brooklyn, NY in 1995 and moved the business to San Francisco, CA in 1997. In 2001 the company was shelved by the founder to pursue a full-time position as a teacher for “at risk” children. The company was not ramped back up until 2007 when a ground swell of interest in the Mark VI Jacket hit a fever pitch because of its repeated appearance on the show “Myth Busters” while worn by co-host Adam Savage.
