Judging by the blurb on their web site, Value Gear is run by an American expat who moved to Ireland for a quieter, less-stressed life. He is an “at home Dad” by day, and a resin accessory producer by night, which doesn’t sound like a half-bad way to live!
Value Gear’s products are generic, in that they are appropriate for any army, since they are a series of rolled up tarps, tents, and other canvas items, along with generic wooden crates. Thus they are equally at home on a WW1 French Army FT-17, a 1944 German FT-17, a Canadian Korean War Sherman, or the back of an Opel Blitz in Poland, 1939.
