I've never understood the "Made in America" argument. It hasn't helped your economy to any great degree and American-built products aren't any better or worse quality on average.

Your economy would be better off if you just bought the best value and spent your savings in your home town. Companies that produce crap and can only sell it by slapping on a Made in America sticker would go under and good companies selling good product would benefit from the decreased competition (like Never Summer)

we don't think they're better because they're made here. it's more of an american pride thing. so many of our products (not just snowboards) these days are made in china and other countries. it also gives people jobs here in the US. that said, i'd much rather buy a good product from a company that has their stuff made overseas then a shit product made here in the US. but it just so happens that mervin and never summer make good products. by the way i ride a Rome (an american company out of vermont) and their boards are made in austria lol.

Stepchild - Austria

How the hell they are able to keep prices reasonable, being from expensive as fk Vancouver... beats me.

I dont get the made in america thing either....... Seems americans prefer having the minnimum wage jobs rather than the actual companies making the profit at home. Because, seriously, the money is not made in manufacturing labour.
