Created in 1980 (over 40 years ago!), 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.
It all started in the mountaineering, cross-country skiing and rafting trade a long time ago. We wanted to make sure that extreme sports athletes were coming back home safe. Our objective is to design and manufacture high standard gear. We believe that it is better and safer to spend a few extra dollars to deliver the best in performance and lifetime value.
In 1988, we had the privilege to support the army members of the Australian Association Bicentennial Everest Expedition.
Crossfire has the enormous privilege to retain Ian Maley as our consultant designer. His expertise and insight are drawn from a scientific and practical approach. Thanks to Ian’s abilities we are able to bring a project to life only in a matter of weeks. He always astonishes us with his innovations and creativity.

Thanks to our partners, we can tap into their buying power for textiles, materials and components. We have the ability to order up specific textiles, alloys, and buckles to exactly match the end-use. Each component of our products is specified by the Crossfire team. We use some unique components and exotic technical textiles. We put the emphasis on comfort, durability, weight reduction, strength, and cooling.
