I think a lot of these companies have gotten too big for their britches in the last ten years. Mountain Hardware being just one of them. Marmot being another. Just in the last year I have had the stitching fall out of two pairs of Marmot gloves, the thumbs literally fell off after a few uses! and a pair of rain paints that delaminated after one season. I need quality products, not a company that will constantly replace faulty ones until I get tired of mailing them back. From now on I am sticking with US/Canada made smaller operations. Westcomb, Melanzana, Verve climbing, Western Mountaineering, for example.
