Olive Arrow

How We Began

Olive Arrow was founded by former Army and Marine Infantrymen. While keeping up with tactical training, we reflected on our experiences overseas and knew that there was a need to bring functional innovation to our brothers-in-arms.


Our Mission

"Innovation for America's Finest." Those four words encapsulate our mission: we exist to create  practical solutions for the tactical needs of military, law-enforcement, and personal preservation.
