    Warbonnet Quality

    I've been using one of the international BB for a while and just received one of the multicam and just had to say the difference in quality really justifies Brandon keeping production in house. At first I though my perception was just because of the difference in the thickness of the material (1.0 vs. 1.9) but a closer inspection shows that there is a quality difference in terms of the detail in the stitching (I also like the little feature of the bug net tie down).

    That being said, the 1.0 isn't bad workmanship, just that side by side you can see the difference between good and excellent.

    Thanks Brandon for not sacrificing quality for price.

    Interesting perspective, thanks for sharing. I've never actually seen any of his items produced oversees - I only own stuff made here in the US. I would have guessed the quality of things made here is higher, but it's nice for the confirmation.

    How would you know if it was made overseas or not?

    How come his website states;

    "We're located in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, and all our gear is sewn right here at our shop in Evergreen, CO."

    Was there just an experiment in overseas manufacturing and now all things are being made in USA?

    Yes, if you read the above thread that is exactly what happened.

    Some blackbirds and tarp were made in China. They had a sewn in tag that said MADE IN CHINA. I had one and it was fine.

    Care to elaborate? I can't stand unsupported comments like that.
