Founded in 1941, Peerless Garments is proud to be have been a supplier to the military since 1950. The first coat sets we were privileged to design and develop were worn by our troops from 1950 to 1974.
This design was replaced in 1974 by the Extreme Cold Weather Parka system which served until the bid conference in 1991, to design the “Clothe the Soldier” program. Peerless Garments was instrumental in the design and development of the new system.
We have been developing for and delivering to the Canadian Army, Navy and Air Force, this new generation of clothing according to the Canadian bidding process. We also supplied Sears Canada with men’s leather outerwear for 37+ years, coast to coast.
In addition to our core products, we are a leader in the production of highly-technical garments which provide water-resistance, wind-proofing and warmth. We are licensed to use Gore-Tex® fabrics including Wind-Stopper® and other work wear materials. We are experienced with fire resistant materials, anti-static products and chemical warfare protective materials. We are specialists using specialized fabrics.
Throughout our history, we have been proud of our standing as a unionized factory, delivering the best Canadian-made jackets, parkas and apparel for the public, government agencies and private companies.
