I have a friend who worked at Arc'Teryx when their clothing was Made in Canada. He saw no small irony in the fact that all the seamstresses who sewed those $500 Gore-Tex jackets were Chinese or Korean.

I agree with supporting buy American and or Canadian for that matter. Sadly its very hard to do. I have several Arcteryx items but have stopped buying them as well. I see they pass none of their cost savings along to the consumer. They must be making a bomb with oversees production and charging made in Canada prices.
Just my thoughts.

Good call! If we don't support this country we are saving a buck, but selling off our childrens future. All the weath our forefathers accumulated is being shipped overseas.

No, more likely we don't have enough companies who manufacture their gear here. . .
