Default FORLOH Clothing? Made in the USA.

I have really been trying to make an effort to avoid buying anything made in China. I have an upcoming trip to Alaska and need to upgrade my 20 year old stuff. I have looked at Kuiu, Sitka, First Lite, stone glacier, etc. ALL MADE IN CHINA.

I have come across this new brand FORLOH (For the Love Of Hunting). 100% sourced and made in the US.

Anybody know anything about the company or tried any of their gear?

What a terrible name

Rokslide has good reviews on it though

I do everything I can to not send a penny to China. That said, I've got a number of Kuiu pieces, and the oldest (2016ish) was made in China, with the rest being Vietnam or Ethiopa. Still not the USA, but worth mentioning.

I buy steel from Taiwan, Belgium, France, the UAE, South Korea, and Turkey, smarty pants. China has so much anti-dumping in place on steel products; we have not been able to import so much as a roofing nail from there without massive tariffs for 7 years now. Yeah I saw the rokslide posts but thought I would ask here.

Holy Snikes - that is some expensive clothing - but I guess no more expensive than the Kuiu or Sika Vietnam made stuff and at least this is made in USA.

Good for you, I try and do the same and it is hard but worth the effort.
