I never really focused on who I was purchasing products from until six years ago. I remember during that time that companies such as Nike were taking stands on pressing topics that I did not agree with. I found that when chaos was hitting our world, whether it was through COVID-19 or even the overturn of Roe V. Wade, there were companies that made stances on those topics. It was at that moment I knew I couldn’t support companies that were taking my money and putting it towards a cause I don’t support. I did a lot of research following those events and have found some great companies. So, I wanted to create a list of my top ten favorite patriotic companies that I believe support a true patriot’s values, along with some that are just my personal favorites.
1. Black Rifle
Black Rifle Coffee was one of the first brands I remember that broke into the coffee industry as a supporter of the patriotic lifestyle. I remember a lot of brands following suit trying to push their patriotic views through the branding of their coffee but the one that always stuck in my mind was Black Rifle. One of my favorite things about them is how they started out by selling their coffee at shooting ranges. I love the idea behind their marketing—of really meeting their target audience right where they are.
2. Good Ranchers
One thing that I am incredibly passionate about is the agriculture industry and the importance of not relying on grocery stores to supply your meat. While it is not practical for everybody to live on a farm and raise their own animals, Good Ranchers have made it possible for people to source their meat from American farmers. The farmers are vetted very carefully and there is a very extensive process to be a part of Good Ranchers. I think it’s really cool to have a company partner with trusted farmers to then supply Americans who want good quality meat without the grocery store.
3. Rick Hinderer Knives
Rick Hinderer Knives are a huge favorite in my family. These are incredibly unique, functional, and truly beautiful knives. They have, in my opinion, the best options when it comes to picking a knife. They also have a very prestigious name which I also think is cool because once you own one it’s as if you are a part of a club. It’s fun to collect their knives and to keep up with what they’re doing to revolutionize the knife-making process.
4. Brittany and Kasi
Brittany and Kasi is a clothing brand by Brittany Aldean and her sister-in-law Kasi Rosa. I have always followed the Aldeans because I liked her husband Jason’s music and in the last couple of years Brittany was making headlines because of her conservative values and how she and Jason were being affected by her being vocally conservative. During the height of the controversy surrounding her views she decided to create a conservative-minded clothing brand alongside her sister-in-law. One of the things I really liked about this was the mission behind why they started it. Instead of allowing themselves to be cancelled she rose up and went full on conservative and even made a clothing brand.
5. Yee Yee Apparel
Many years ago, during the beginning of Granger Smith’s music journey, he was making videos featuring his alter ego, Earl Dibbles Jr. In one of the videos Earl said “Yee Yee” and that video blew up. The family decided to capitalize on that rise to fame by turning that statement into a brand. They are boldly patriotic and very redneck.
6. Nine Line
I put Nine Line on this list because they are one of the first memories I have when it comes to patriotic clothing. When I think of the original conservative in-your-face company, I automatically think of this one. I love how truly bold they are and how they’re not afraid to put some “offensive” slogans on their shirts.
7. Eclipse Holsters
When I started carrying a gun a few years ago I did a lot of research to figure out what holster I wanted to use. I was not a fan of the average holster that you could find in stores or on Amazon. I wanted a very specific style and clip for my holster. After a lot of research, I found Eclipse Holsters and absolutely loved my experience with them. I send everybody I know to them. They are a small business that deserves a lot of recognition because of how hard they work and also how much they accommodate people like me who want something specific.
8. Alexo Athletica
Alexo was another company that changed the game when it came to concealed carrying. They make amazing pants that you can carry in without having to wear a belt. I love these because they have everything from sport shorts to work pants. They have made it possible for me to carry during times that are much longer than a few hours. Their clothing is very comfortable and practical.
9. Network of Enlightened Women
Network of Enlightened Women is very near to my heart. I was a part of this organization while I was in college, and it changed my life. I participated in many organizations, but it wasn’t until I joined this one that I learned how important it was to be a woman in the conservative world. They gave me necessary tools to not only voice my beliefs but also stand up for them while I was looking for a job. I can say with 100% certainty that I would not have found a job at Parler if it was not for this organization. If you are a woman, I highly suggest joining them on their mission to educate, equip, and empower other women.
10. The Daily Wire
Is it really an article about some of my favorite patriotic companies without including The Daily Wire? I feel like this is a very common—potentially even household—name for conservatives like me, but I wanted to bring it up because it’s not just the podcasts or the influencers that I think are great but their journalistic videos. I love watching the videos they create that expose companies along with highlighting athletes and other influencers that deserve the credit for what they are doing in the conservative world.
I hope you all enjoyed learning about a few of my favorite patriotic companies. I would love to hear about yours! If you click here, you can respond to our Parler Community question with your favorites.
