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.

It's a tough carabinier, designed extremely well but a bit expensive

I used various lanyard's & badge holder's for years. Always found myself doublechecking to make sure it hadn't fallenout - because it did on several occassions. I wanted something to hold the ID Card/badge securely, and also be easy to remove. This is the best I've found.
