Man, the made in China thing is kind of beat. The main reason that a lot of goods are made in China is that too many domestic producers charge too much, are too hard to work with, and never deliver. Quality control is the biggest issue there. Producers that can keep that in check get a perfectly fine product. I just can't knock the product because it's "Made in China".
Not to say I don't buy domestically. Neversummer is produced just down the road from me. I spent a shit ton of money on a custom splitboard from them. $1400. All because I knew it was a superior product. With boards I guess I tend to stick with the local guys. With softgoods, it's hard to find stuff that is made in the US all because of production costs. I also don't want to be $600 for the same jacket that now costs $300, because it's now made in the US. Shit is expensive enough.
Moral of the story, is get the product that works for what you're doing, don't worry about where it's made.
