About Us


Created in 1980, Crossfire (AUST) P/L is a family-owned business based in Braidwood, NSW. Only an hour away from the Australian capital. Our extended network allows us to call upon world-class expertise to help us field new projects and respond to user feedback to refine the current production.

CROSSFIRE builds the best load-bearing equipment in the world. We build for those in our community who inspire us, those men and women with a job to do. We build with the best materials available and the most durable construction methods that exist so that you know anything bearing the CROSSFIRE brand will support you regardless of task, season , weather or terrain. Our objective simply is to design and manufacture world-class personal load bearing equipment and apparel .

Any product bearing the CROSSFIRE doesn’t happen by accident, they’re not born in a sterile design studio. They’re built on 40 years of back country, operational, engineering and quality assurance experience. Our inspiration comes from hard won experience and from end users. Heritage and past history doesn’t mean a great deal unless you remain adaptive and innovative.

  • Industry Expertise – We retain resident field experts who possess cutting-edge knowledge of human biomechanics, material and design engineering and the end user’s needs.
  • Collaborative – We specialise in designing innovative and trusted load carriage solutions for the harshest environments for the military, government, law enforcement, fire-rescue, as well as our community.
  • One-Stop-Shop – For over three decades, Crossfire has a proven reputation of offering the latest in textile engineering, pack design and manufacture at competitive prices

Our Vision: To become the first choice for load bearing equipment for those in our community who demand excellence without compromise.

Our Values:

  1. Innovation: Crossfire equipment is best in its class, worldwide. Our head designer, Mr Ian Maley, has a lifetime of experience in both the wilderness and practical application of experience to design, textile engineering and manufacture. Crossfire prides itself on our innovation, not replication. It is developed from first principles by absolute experts. We understand our end users demand the best from themselves and from their equipment.
  2. Competency: Materials suppliers, production engineers and factory staff have been with us for decades. Their level of competence gives us the confidence to offer exceptional build quality and function.
  3. Strategy: Our plan is to be the best and most respected military pack builder on the market. We have invested heavily to ensure that anything that bears the Crossfire name is 100% field ready out of the box.
  4. Transparency: Crossfire communicates closely with clients and partners. We listen to their needs. Confidentiality and IP are fully considered. Materials sourcing and manufacture are conducted with respect for our workers and our environment.

How It Works :

Because we produce in small batches, we tend to sell out of products in particular range and colours on a frequent basis.

However, because we produce in small batches, and own our factory, we can get a restock pretty quickly (if demand is there).

Supply and Delivery  

We gauge demand based on how fast items sell, your comments and emails, and is the item still relevant and suitable for task .

In an age of Amazon, Gumtree ect not getting an item you want the very next day can be a frustrating experience, however, we promise your patience will rewarded.

We are always trying to refine our process’s and get a little better as further develop our supply chains. Lastly, this makes ownership of a Crossfire product truly special. You are not 1 of a million owners. You are 1 of a few 100 or thousand owners. We take great pride our products all Crossfire products are made for those who demand no compromise in excellence. In a world of replication and mass manufacture we will not compromise or replicate. When you see someone else carrying or wearing the Crossfire logo you know you are among good company, not just another average consumer.
