Made in USA High Quality Rain Gear?

11 posts in this topic

Does anyone currently make high quality Made in USA rain gear?   I contacted Zero Restriction recently and they say everything they make is now imported.

While value is always of great concern, my first priority is quality and not about money.    I'm willing to pay top dollar for high quality USA apparel,   but not $300-400 for a Communist Chinese golf jacket that sold for less when it was made in the USA.    These thieving globalist CEOs have forgotten about patriotism when their first priority is unbridled greed.

Stick to Nike, Adidas, or Footjoy.

Either way, Don't feed the troll.

And you can't go wrong with Zero Restriction.  All my rain gear is ZR, both golf and causal, IMHO they have the best rain wear available.

Thanks all for taking the time to reply to my question.

Money is no object (within some reason) in my quest for high quality and USA made golf wear.  Zero Restriction must have been USA made until fairly recently.   I have some of their windbreakers and rain gloves and all say USA. I never minded paying a high price for them because of two reasons...it was high quality and the money was recirculating in the USA economy.   Now they and others move production to China and still expect us Americans to fork over our money at the same price (or more) while some global executive gets to pocket the difference in his bonus.  Money is being extracted from the USA like a shop vac in a barrel of full of peanuts.   Sorry if my philosophy of buying American offends anyone.

BTW although I was registered here for years, I must have lost my ID info.

To be fair I don't have a clue what the gear was, only that all the Europeans were kitted out in the perfect gear for rainy, freezing Scottish weather and all the US team had "waterproof malfunctions" as the commentator explained it.

Let's call a spade a spade.  The only unanswered question is where Sun Mountain of Montana had it manufactured.   Probably China.  The comments on this web site says it all.     If Americans don't fight to get it back then we deserve everything we get.   If we allow these corporations to do what gives them the most profits,  at USA cost,  the next embarassment we suffer won't be a rainsuit in a golf tournament but military gear in the field of battle.

Sun Mountain. It was Sun Mountain. I was kind of glad those things sucked so bad, they looked uglier than they performed.
