Outerwear - Made in USA?

Outerwear - Made in USA? - 04/17/21 07:43 PM

I am looking for a few items, particularly a jacket, for an Alaska trip. I looked to Sitka but was turned off by Made in China. I ordered Kuiu because it said Made in Canada, but quickly cancelled when I discovered they too are made in China. Is there any Made in USA outerwear? I know of a few good products from Sweden, France and Hungary. I will buy those first before Chinese made, but I prefer USA origin.

If your looking at high end stuff like Sitka, Kuiu, First Lite etc your out of luck. Personally I hate buying the Chinese made stuff but don’t really have a choice. There are plenty of work type jackets and outer wear made in the USA, but the stuff is not really made for hunting.

What brands did you find that were not made in China?

There's one jacket from Schaeffer Outfitters that I am seriously considering. Their Blacktail Quilted Rangewax jacket. Also, the Blackstock (brand) Altitude jacket. Other than those two Made in USA I don't see anything that fits the order.

You will have to mix and match

You can start with a berry complaint search

I don’t know much about them but I too have thought about purchasing their stuff just because of the made at home reason. Good luck!

I have to say, Schaeffer's Outfitters in Fort Worth were very helpful in getting me a jacket and other laying garments to meet my needs. Some is not "camo' but still will do what I need it to. Blackstock clothing also proved to be willing to help and is Made in USA

Another Schaeffer fan here. I have their waxed ranch coat and...a silk cowboy neck scarf. Yes, I use the scarf. It works (in the winter). grin
