Former Navy SEAL Mike Noell was on a mission in Afghanistan when the strap on his issued backpack broke, falling onto a land mine. Fortunately, it did not detonate and he made it out alive. Still, the experience stuck with Noell and in 1993, he founded Blackhawk with the ultimate goal of creating no-fail gear for military and tactical professionals. The brand's background is a large part of why every piece of clothing, equipment and footwear has to meet meticulous standards before it's ever released. Military personnel and first responders need gear they can trust, which is why they choose Blackhawk time and time again.
