In 1990, a Navy SEAL was navigating a minefield when his pack failed. As his gear tumbled to the ground, he vowed that if he got out of there alive he would make gear the right way. Today, this commitment to quality and reliability applies to everything we do. We’re constantly researching, refining and perfecting every detail to provide products that won’t let you down. At Blackhawk, we’re not just making gear; we’re honoring a vow.
