The story behind the Quick Rifle Release (QRR) goes back to 2009 when founder Eirik Andersen was out hunting in the Norwegian mountains. After a long day skiing with his rifle hanging by a sling around his neck, he went home to search for a better way of carrying his rifle. None of the existing solutions on the market satisfied his needs. Being a product developer by trade, it didn’t take him long until the first QRR-prototype was ready for testing. After 3 years of numerous prototypes, extensive field testing and refining the system - the first backpack was ready for the market under the name Vorn Equipment. Vorn means “defence” in the old Norse language. Since the launch in 2012 Vorn has grown steadily and is now known for its innovative high-quality backpacks.
Vorn Defense was established in 2016 and develops backpacks for military and LE marked based on the same patented Quick Rifle Release system.
