Our History

AFMO.com, established in 1997, was the first online source for military and outdoor gear. We are proud of our fifteen-year tenure and look forward to the next fifteen with optimism. Technology has evolved, but our core principles endure.

We have been servicing military, outdoor and law enforcement footwear, clothing and gear markets for thirty-four years. His first ten years were spent as a designer and manufacturer of military, outdoor and tactical clothing and uniforms. Since 1988 AFMO.com devoted his efforts to servicing retail and government agency customers.

Why Buy AFMO™

AFMO.com™ places emphasis on Purpose-Built gear—products that are conceived, designed, manufactured, marketed and sold to enhance our customers' performance and safety FIRST; price is secondary. Our purpose-built gear is sturdier and features higher grade materials, as well as superior stitching and workmanship, with a better fit & finish than value-engineered products. One correctly researched purpose-built product will replace multiple mediocre value-engineered products.

"Value-engineered" means cheaper products that are designed, manufactured, marketed and sold at an attractive price, but at the expense of performance and safety. This is where corners are cut as manufacturers and retailers believe they can entice discriminating customers into low-cost but low-quality products. Many "big box" store and internet retail private label programs are "value-engineered."
