Belligerent Digger grew from a hobby of screen printing gym singlets in the backyard for army mates around 2009. Since then, after a few different iterations and pauses due to deployments, Belligerent Digger has turned into a business that makes PT gear as well as accessories. They currently focus on producing shorts that are compliant with the Australian Army dress manual.
Belligerent Digger is run by a former infantryman of the Royal Australian Regiment and is aimed towards military members who want decent quality garments for under shirts, PT and gym wear and custom unit shirts. Belligerent Digger do their best to make garments that are within the limits and spirit of the ADM and will be acceptable for wear at work.
Belligerent Digger aim to make decent quality PT and gym apparel and provide it to diggers at a reasonable price.
