I wouldn't say I'm loyal to only few companies. Theres a lot of companies out there producing quality goods with good customer service. If you only stick with one company you tend to lose out on some of the newer technology other brands may be using. So instead I just try to avoid to companies I've had bad experiences with. Some of the companies I've bought stuff from and been satisfied with - Rome, Volcom, Forum, Burton, Smith, Ride, Thirtytwo, Special Blend, Foursquare. I've heard good things about Union and have been looking into a new set of binders for my park board and may just check them out.
