Swiss Link | What's behind the name?

Swiss Link Military Surplus, in its early days, played a role in the demilitarization of the Swiss Army. For twenty years Swiss Link sold off the goods that the Swiss Army chose to sell off in the surplus world as opposed to destroying it like some other militaries do. That's why we're called Swiss Link. We thought for sure that we'd be doing that forever but of course there was an end to the supply of those good. Swiss Link began to dive deep into the world of military surplus, searching all over Europe for high quality decommissioned military gear. We now sell surplus not only from Switzerland but from Britain, Germany, the Czech Republic, Austria, Finland, Denmark, Russia, Franc, Italy, and Sweden just to name a few.

Why choose military surplus?

Military gear is meant to withstand extreme use. Simply put, it's the toughest stuff out there. On top of that, it's some of the cheapest equipment available. Civilian manufacturers do occasionally make backpacks, blankets, pants, gloves, etc. that match the quality of military surplus, but at ten times the price. No exaggeration. That's why we stick with it. We can proudly stand by the quality of our good while promising the best prices at the same time. Not only that, but these items already exist. There's no need to burden the earth with the waste of creating new items which will only pale in comparison to the real deal. It's a win-win.

New is a funny word around here. Sometimes new means thirty years old but never before used. We've got a special page for new items at Swiss Link.
