    Greetings,

    Trying to come-up with a list of US manufacturers of MOLLE/PALS based equipment. So far I have:

    Mystery Ranch (military product line, others Vietnam)
    Hill People Gear (Grand Junction, CO and St Louis)
    ?????

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks,

    Hunter

    I have several dozen Maxpedition and Condor pouches of various sizes and have been wearing them every day for decades (Maxpedition prolly 30 years, condor over 15). I went to them after tiring of destroying other gear.

    For Eberlestock, they are a premier pack and just as overbuilt as the Maxpedition gear. I've never had any item fail from any of these three MFGs. I use Eberlestock packs for hunting, hiking and camping as well as tactical bags.

    BTW, in most cases I lash the pouches to the packs using lots of Paracord. I also make belt loops with lots (8 - 16 loops) of paracord. Nothing comes off. I do use some of the standard molle ties for things I know I will switch around.

    I appreciate the input folks. The key deal is US manufacturing. Condor, Maxpedition, and 5.11 are overseas production.

    We could debate the quality levels of these manufacturers (There is such a thing as quality, non American made gear), but none of these are made in the USA.

    A good, general rule of thumb is that if you need to look very hard at all to find out where a certain web gear product is made, you can be almost guaranteed that it isn't made in the US.
