Blackhawk® Wins Gold Choice Award from Tactical Retailer

Blackhawk Voted Best Vest/Backpack by Industry Readers

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – October 20, 2022 – Blackhawk®, a leader in law enforcement and military equipment for over 20 years, has been named the winner of a Gold Award for best vests and backpacks by readers of Tactical Retailer magazine. Blackhawk was recognized as part of the Tactical Retailer Readers’ Choice Awards, which recognizes best-in-class products.

Tactical Retailer magazine is one of the longest-standing and most respected B2B brands in the retailer market. The magazine developed the Reader’s Choice Awards to help give a voice to the independent retailer, gunsmith, shooting range employee, content contributor and manufacturer representative. The awards acknowledge those products and brands that bring the best gear to market each year. 

“By honoring a vow from a Navy Seal in 1990, the Blackhawk brand was born and has become well known throughout the shooting sports and tactical markets for high quality and innovative products,” said Derrick Nawrocki, President of Grand View Outdoors, the publisher of Tactical Retailer. “Those same efforts continue to pay off today and this Gold Award is simply more proof. Well done.”

Blackhawk continues to introduce category leading products in both vests and backpacks. Most recently, the brand introduced the Foundation Series Tac Nylon, which features plate carriers and chest rigs, all of which are built with modular capabilities, stronger construction, and lighter weight than typical ballistic nylon gear found on the market. The new Foundation Series along with other items like the Stingray EDC Pack, provide both working professionals and serious users with high quality gear ready for any mission.

About Blackhawk

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. We’re constantly researching, refining and perfecting every detail to provide gear that won’t let you down. Because we’re not just making stuff – we’re honoring a vow.
