It makes perfect sense for Maxpedition to start making patches. They have been making bags and pouches with loop fields for affixing patches for years. They sent me a few of their patches to check out.
The quality is great. All of their patches are made from PVC and have some of the finest detail that I have seen. Check out the stars on the mini US Flag (2″x1″) and the tiny skulls in the background on the Skull patch to see what I mean!
I really like that they have a pretty full line of utility patches and flags. They offer medic patches in 2 sizes (2″x2″ and 1″x1″) and multiple format flag patches. So, while Maxpedition does make some patches that are just cool for the sake of being cool, they also have a ton of patches that are actually useful.
