If you really love Maxpedition than welcome to Magforce
by Robert Hisle · Sun Oct 14, 2012 07:06 AM

Hi everyone,

 

I'd thought I would share something with everyone. In Asia we don't have Maxpedition, instead we have their sister comapny Magforce. The lines are similar but their are some regional tweaks if you will. For example in America we can get ACU or Army digital green colors, or their 10 x 4 bottle holder. But in the Magfroce line that is not an option. On the other hand the Magforce line has the Super Falcon. A Falcon II on steroids. Here is a link to an English language website in Singapore. In South Korea it costs w210,000 or $200.

Another site but in Korean

Check their stuff out. They have some interesting options that we can't get in America.

I bought the Magforce equivalent of the FR1 pouch when I was over in Hong Kong. I can't remember exactly what I paid for it, but I believe it was around half the cost of the Maxpedition one, which is £36 here in the UK (that's around US $56).It's pretty much identical to the Maxpedition version, although it comes with the added bonus of the molle straps on the back, which I believe the Maxpedition verison does not?

 

When I originally bought it I thought it was simply a copy, but Googling Magforce I discovered that they are actually part of the main company that owns Maxpedition, but focus on the Asian market. I also read that quality wasn't always the same as Maxpedition, but I'm not sure if that's true or not

Hi,

 

I was really confused when I saw Magfroce too I also thought it was a kockoff product Magforce is about the same price we would pay for retail Maxped products or in some cases a little more. For example the Maxped Falcon II is $155, and the Magforce Falcon II is w160,000 or $145.00, at today's rate. I know they do some minor tweaks to both lines, but I can't attest to the quality to Magforce. I bought my friend a Magforce Archer 20 x 12 and it looked to have the same features and construction as my Maxped Kodiak. I think both lines have their pros and cons. Magforce sells alot of the older stuff like the Typhoon Gearslinger, and cool stuff like the Super Falcon, and the TYD Computer backpack, however the Maxped line seems to put out more products, with many color options.
