Just to clear things up... We have 3 offices: Colico Italy, Seattle Wa, and Shenzhen China.
Italy is design, engineering, and production.
USA is marketing and graphic design.
China is production, assembly and packaging.
There is zero outsourcing. It's nice and happy around here too man. Maybe a little too much
Sorry but that is still outsourcing. The company was founded and is operated in Seattle, WA, and relying on other countries to provide a means of production is still "outsourcing" by definition.
Anyway, how do I, and other users here know if your legit? -There was apparently an incident involving a C3 representative, who promoted contest awarding whoever "hijacks" the most forums here with a pair of Union bindings. I'm not sure exactly what happened, but if you search it you can find it quite easily.
Im pretty sure he is legit. Looks like they are just trying to do what was asked of them by many members and having a member who will inform people on their bindings without getting into internet fights.
