"Vanquest® was founded with a simple mission:
Build the toughest bags & packs for your everyday carry (EDC),
and help you stay organized & prepared"

In 2011, a team of industry veterans, outdoor gear designers, photographers, and former founding members of Maxpedition, gathered to found the Vanquest® brand. 

Since 2011, the Vanquest Team has been building ultra-durable bags and packs to organize your everyday carry (EDC) gear. Vanquest products are used by professionals such as the US Special Operations Command (USSOCOM), US Secret Service, US Marshals, and the FBI.
