My snowboards (Mervin & NS) are made in the US. My DH/FR mtn bikes (Intense & Transition) are also made in the US. I like that customer service is based here and that I'm supporting our economy in a tiny way with what little dollars I have to spend. I drive German/Japanese cars and have 40 pairs of Nikes, so it's not like I'm running around screaming "they took er jawbs," but it's definitely my preference when it comes to the sports I'm into. It hasn't stopped me from owning plenty of Bataleon, K2, Ride, Burton, Flux, Union, Arbor, Nitro, DC, etc... gear but it's always a plus when you can keep it domestic.
