Eagle Industries, Quality by Design


Eagle Industries is a world leader in the production of top-quality individual equipment products for the military, homeland security, and law enforcement agencies. Founders John Carver and his mother, Lorene Pyles, began operations in the basement of her St. Louis, Missouri home in 1974 where they produced nylon gear for motorcycle racing, including assorted bags, fanny packs, motocross pants, and a variety of other packs. In 1982, the company integrated under the Eagle banner and redirected its product focus to fill a noticeable void in the availability of quality tactical nylon products for military and law enforcement. The initial handful of employees focused on producing rifle cases, holsters, bags, and packs. In 2009, Eagle became a wholly owned subsidiary of Alliant Techsystems, Inc. (ATK), a premier aerospace and defense company.

Quality by Design

Each of Eagle’s employees understands the importance of maintaining Eagle’s standards of quality for both the soldiers’ safety and the company’s reputation alike. The company boasts a talented Research and Development team that is largely comprised of former military personnel and Special Operations team members, giving Eagle the experience needed to refine popular designs and develop new equipment to meet their customers’ ever-changing needs. All commercial products manufactured by Eagle are subject to the company’s strict quality standards, meet or exceed military specifications, and are backed by a lifetime guarantee.

Made in the USA

Headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri, Eagle offers Berry compliant manufacturing, operating out of four production facilities: St. Louis, Missouri; Lares, Puerto Rico; Mayaguez, Puerto Rico; and Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. In addition to Eagle’s manufacturing capabilities, customer outreach facilities strategically located in Fayetteville, North Carolina and Virginia Beach, Virginia further reflect the company’s standards of quality performance.


Eagle’s core customers include the U.S. Special Operations Command, the Department of Homeland Security, all branches of the U.S. Department of Defense, many high-profile International Special Operations Units, federal and state law enforcement agencies, corrections officers, and security personnel. In addition, Eagle has a strong core of OEM customers that demand top-quality private label manufacturing for some of the most recognized names in the industry. Eagle distributes through all Department of Defense Prime Vendors and sells a commercial product line through over 650 dealers in 45 countries.


Backed by nearly 35 years of design experience, Eagle has emerged as one of the most trusted names in tactical nylon gear and has become known for its “will not fail” quality and lifetime guarantee. Eagle manufactures a wide selection of combat-proven, time-tested products, including tactical vests, holsters, insertion-extraction harnesses, gear bags, packs, weapon cases, pouches, and weapon slings for military and law enforcement personnel through government contracts, unit sales, and a network of independent representatives.
