    My philosophy has always been, why guess when you can read and know for sure! ;)

    Unless I'm missing something, The website is a little vague, they merely state that the cordura and cord are made in the U.S. and that the bags are "designed and engineered in the U.S."
    They all clearly carry a "assembled in Taiwan label though

    From that link I posted:

    Build Quality & Workmanship


    QUALITY IS IN THE DETAILS

    • Bartacking on MOLLE/PALS webbing (see image)
    • Double stitching for better construction
    • “Box-and-X” stitching on stress points
    • Seams taped and finished with high tensile strength bonded nylon thread
    We source materials from all over the world, including the US (genuine MultiCam / MiltiCam-Black CORDURA®, Gladding 550 paracords... etc.), and Taiwan. Our assembly factories in Taiwan and the Philippines (both have 30+ years of experience in soft goods production) finish our products to the highest construction quality standards by Vanquest®

    No worries.. I think we share the same sentiment here. I am not a huge fan of brands that give the appearance of being US Made but are really being made offshore. I won't do business with more than one company for that behaviour.

    Well I guess since my maxped bag has held up great for many years and it was made there it shouldn't be any problem. Worse case scenario I can return it.

    It's not about quality for me, I just try to support our workforce whenever I can. Sometimes, it's just impossible, my iPhone is made in China, nothing I can do about that and if there's a bag that I just have to have that's made elsewhere I'll buy it. Whenever I can, though, I try to buy stuff that's made here.

    Well I thought I had one. Ordered a condor assault 2. And I like the size and layout but it's so cheap I have to return it.

    And now I ordered a maxped falcon. Got a great deal so this should serve me well.
