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 obsession with quality applies to everything we do. Weâ€™re constantly researching, refining and perfecting every detail to provide gear that wonâ€™t let you down. Because weâ€™re not just making stuff. Weâ€™re honoring a vow.
