Revgear has been a force in the sport for more than a decade now, and although they got their start on the west coast, they’ve sponsored events here in Pennsylvania and elsewhere on the east coast. I had the opportunity recently to interview Revgear head honcho Paul Reavlin, so here’s what I learned:

When Paul Reavlin graduated from college in the early 1990s, he quickly settled into a job as an accountant, but at he same time, he was a martial arts junkie, and began taking classes in the reality-based martial art of Krav Maga.

Then came an eipiphany. “We were a little frustrated with the equipment we were using,” he said of his training partners. They wanted equipment that would hold up to a high degree of punishment, but yet also remain flexible. Reavlin decided to launch his own martial arts gear company, naming it Revgear, a play on his last name. “I felt like it would be a cool industry to be in,” he said. “I felt there would be a lot of other people who would want the same equipment.” (more…)

Founded in 1996 by Paul Reavlin, Revgear has proudly earned the distinguished acclaim ‘Pro Gear for Pro Fighters’ and continues to be the leading innovator and manufacturer of Martial Arts equipment including training gear, fight gear and fight apparel. The Revgear winning formula of supreme construction and cutting edge technology allows them to succeed in their strives to meet the training needs of athletes and competitors all over the world with durable equipment that can withstand the most demanding bouts. Revgear’s innovation creates products that are devoted to specifically meeting and exceeding the needs of those training in Martial Arts, MMA, Boxing, Self-Defense or Fitness Training.
