Kifaru We've had extensive experience in the outdoor business - both in the field and in the
shop, and many of us have gained valuable experience as former employees of Mountainsmith -
making and using Mt. Everest quality mountaineering products. Every dollar you spend with
Kifaru is kept right here in the United States. Instead of fueling foreign economies, we put funds
right back into American pockets. The taxes reaped from our sales and salaries support our

Mountain Ridge Gear, LLC MRG makes high quality, American made gear. I spent more than
21 years in the Air Force and developed an affinity for quality gear that was NOT made in
China. I have traveled extensively and have gone through numerous bags that didn't hold up.
As a result I designed my own bag and it came to be known as the Tactical Man Purse. We
also make a tactical messenger bag and various pouches and other bags. All the gear is made to
order right here in beautiful Colorado Springs, CO.

cottage workshop in Washington State
Duluth Pack, we strive to set ourselves apart from the other outdoor gear makers. For 130
years we have been building quality products in Duluth, Minnesota, and for the last 100 of those
years at the same factory on West Superior Street. Many of our current manufacturing methods
are similar to those in the early 1900’s. Pride in craftsmanship is the reason we put signature
labels on all of our products. These labels read: “Handcrafted by”: with the sewer’s hand-signed
initials or name on it. Just lift up that little American flag, and there is the signature. (see photo
gallery) This touch of ownership was initiated at the sewers’ request to put their pride of
workmanship in writing.

the hikers completing this arduous 2650 mile trail are carrying a ULA pack. Our reputation for

none. ULA is one of the few remaining U.S. based backpack companies who manufacture in
house. Our factory in Logan Utah enables us to be extremely responsive to our customers ever
changing needs. It allows us to adapt new technologies and materials in weeks rather than
months, and also allows ULA to offer a level of customer service that is simply unmatched.
