It will keep you warm and dry all season long. Wear it with pride
History of Summit Apparel
Summit Apparel was a subcontractor of Alpha Industries in the 1970’s. The reason for this was an increase in the number of armed forces. In addition, the Department of Defense restricted many contracts to companies of 500 employees or less. To meet this requirement, Alpha Industries helped start Summit Apparel to subcontract out the work.
