Founded in 2003, Maxpedition® successfully optimized the design ethos of American military-grade MOLLE gear to suit the needs of everyday life and popularized its functionality to a global audience. Often imitated but never equaled, genuine Maxpedition gear is the benchmark against which others are compared, and it is trusted by special forces operators, law enforcement officers, adventure travelers and prepared citizens around the world.

Coined in the summer of 2003 by company founder & president Tim Tang, the inspirational Maxpedition® brand name is a linguistic blend of the words 'maximum' and 'expedition'. The Latin root 'ped-' central to the name means 'foot' and is graphically represented within our iconic bootprint trademark.






Over the years, as the company and its product lines have matured, so too has the brand logo in order to reflect current fabrication methods in fabrics, plastics and metals, as well as the latest aesthetics of print and online media.

Regardless of the progressive evolution of our logo artwork, the Maxpedition name remains a steadfast beacon, synonymous with the highest level of quality and durability while connoting an unmistakable sense of adventure.
