Maven Outdoor Equipment Company is an American-based company founded in 2013 by Brendon Weaver, Mike Lilygren, and Cade Maestas. Their goal was to create an optics company that puts quality and performance first without the big box store markup.
Maven prides itself on its mountain town roots, operating today from Lander, Wyoming. They design innovative products for the modern outdoorsman, all designed by modern outdoorsman.
While Maven Optics’ headquarters is in America, the source of their optical components all comes from Japan, which might come as a surprise, but those of us who work in the industry know this is where some of the best glass comes from. Maven’s S, B, and RS Series use Japanese components, while the C Series uses a combination of Japanese components and optical elements from China.
When Maven reached out to ask us to take a look, I honestly had never even heard of the company, which made time with the product even more impressive. These guys know how to pull together quality kit.
