Hand crafted in St. Paul, MN
With the exception of the Phantom Series, all of our clothing is proudly manufactured right here in the United States. We feel that it is important to our brand to have a hands on approach to produce a quality finished product. We have contracted sewers that were hand selected from some of the finest factories in the mid-west. We take pride in being one of the few remaining brands that are loyal to providing goods made right here in the USA. Our clothing is sewn in short runs with extraordinary attention to detail to ensure you receive superior gear for your expedition.
Bottom line, we manufacture great gear with quality fabrics by hard working people that have the initiative to keep USA manufacturing alive.
Knowing where your gear comes from is worth something and providing jobs has immense value to us. Yes, United States manufacturing is much more expensive, and yes, it may be slower (on a per piece basis) than overseas mass production, but the quality and satisfaction we get by keeping our manufacturing onshore is much more valuable.
No American manufacturing industry has suffered more from outsourcing than textiles and apparel. The domestic workforce has shrunk by roughly three-quarters since the 1990’s. This needs to change.
Our margins remain modest and the cost of each garment is going directly into the fabric, trim and the manufacturing. We do not have hidden costs that we are trying to cover up. We want to manufacture a quality product at a competitive price point, period.
