gear made in north america?
 
anybody know of any companies that accually MAKE bindings in the US or canada? i'm pretty sure every binding i've looked at recently says "made in china" on it. i need a new set of bindings pretty soon, and i've been trying to buy more stuff that is made in north america (like my new NS board). also, what companies still make their boards on this continent?

Lib Tech- "Made in the USA near CANADA"

I got one of the last Methods made in Vermont, US. Burton used to make their expensive boards in USA, but moved to Austria.

I know some others, but this is from the top of my head.

Canadian made snowboard & ski gear, Canada - CoastalBC.com

Not many, apparently

If you want American made bindings get some Bomber. You'll just have to rock ski boots and become a mono skier.

I'd assume that people like YES snowboards are made in the US? And maybe Dinosaurs will Die?

YES is made by Nidecker, DWD used to be that one in California (I think) but now they're made by GST (or Elan)


I think Catek is still made in the USA.

BurtonAvenger 03-23-2010 09:25 AM

Catek uses Nidecker parts so I think that's chinese parts.
