Actually they still to this day make some of their gear in the USA, but the bulk of their production moved overseas in the late 90s. I had been a BHI dealer since 95 and they didn't even let their dealer know. One day I had a load of gear come in and it was all good, business as usual and two weeks later I had about 3K of gear come in and when we where unloading the boxes it just didn't feel right, the fabric was different and kinda cheap feeling. Upon closer inspection everything has little "made in Vietnam" tags on it. I called them up asking for an explanation. long story short I sent it all back and never bought anything from them again.
