In 2013 Aquila team members took the lessons learned from decades of manufacturing and created products for the general consumer.

The Escort iPad Mini Case became the first product of Branch Tactical, the commercial products division of Aquila. It has gotten 5 Star reviews on

The Escort surpasses MIL-SPEC standards for drop and impact resistance. It is 100% manufactured in the U.S. and uses 3-D printed ABS clips made at Aquila. Our textile manufacturing partner for the product is located directly across the street, ensuring a higher quality control chain of custody, and keeping all the manufacturing in Albuquerque, NM. The case is currently in use by members of every service branch of the U.S. military stationed worldwide.

Escort iPad Mini Case

“I just recently bought this Escort V2 case and have been very impressed. The Escort case is lightweight, easy to carry (fits very well in my hand), and extremely well made. The way that the iPad is held in place is [with] four clips and they are durable and fit the iPad snuggly. The outside of the case is MOLLE and VELCRO® which not only look great but make it so that I can use it in lots of different ways. Love it! When zipped up, the iPad is very well protected. When you get your case, you will believe as I do that you could drop it off a building, and your iPad will not get broken. If your looking for an iPad Mini Case, do yourself a favor –pick a color and buy one of these – because I don’t think we will need another case ever.” – Dan L.

UpTime Apple Watch
Charger – MFI Licensed

The number one complaint about portable electronics is battery life. The UpTime is an Apple Watch and iOS device charger that makes charging “on-the-go” simple. It is the only Apple Watch charger that is made in the U.S.

The UpTime Apple Watch charger is small and light enough to take anywhere. A built-in 6,600 mAh lithium-ion battery provides enough energy to (approximately) charge your watch five times, charge your phone three times, or add a 50% charge to your tablet.

A rubberized base coating keeps the charger firmly attached to your nightstand. It can charge your Watch while it’s laying flat or tilted up, to take advantage of the Watch’s Nightstand Mode.

The UpTime includes an MFi Licensed Apple Watch and charging module with the following ports: one 5V USB micro IN and two 5V 2.1A USB A OUT.

The charger is available in a stylish brushed stainless steel and may subsequently be offered in white. The MSRP is $89.
