USCAV or U.S. Cavalry has been in business since 1973. Its first retail store was in Kentucky. Although there were a lot of stores sprouting at that time, USCAV stood out because it was the only one that offered products and services for the individual soldier. It was also the only store that had on-site computerized embroidery. Later on, the store went into catalog marketing/selling. Today, USCAV is one of the most popular stores and suppliers of high-quality equipment for the military and the police.


Special Forces Gear was established after LTC Dave Thomas, a member of the Airborne Forces and the Special Forces (Green Berets), decided to share his experiences with the other soldiers. So, using his Special Forces gear as a basis, he created his own equipment designs, making sure that the products’ appearance, utility, and comfort were improved so that civilians could also use them. And so, Special Forces Gear was born.
