View Full Version : Eagle vs. Blackhawk?

Seems that Eagle and Blackhawk have quite similar products with quite similar U.S. prices. Is there much difference between the quality of the two brands?

It's like comparing a Volvo to a Saab. Personal preference.

I have long been a fan of Blackhawk gear, but in the past couple of years, they have moved their production to Korea.
Since that time some operators have said there has been a drop in quality. For the gear I use there's little difference. However, I am looking at Eagle products for future purchases.

Mike Noell at Blackhawk is an honorable man who has served his country well, but I prefer to purchase made in USA gear when possible.

Though both make good gear, there is some doubt about some Blackhawk gear since production was moved to Korea. I've got some Blackhawk stuff and way too much Eagle stuff.

I love Eagle gear. Nothing but Quality.

Our SWAT Team wears the BH we are very satisfied and we haven't had one suspect ask us where it was made at (smile)
