My purpose with American Gear Guide has been to inspire people to enjoy, care for, and conserve the beautiful land we have while building support for our incredible American craftsmen and women. Ethical manufacturing in the USA avoids exploiting weak labor/human rights, and environmental standards in developing countries that enrich corporate executives and shareholders without sharing wealth with a strong American middle class.
This is bigger than me. I want us to build a friendly community of support for American manufacturers. If you have some great American made gear that you love, then you should post a review here and share your experiences with the world. There are so many great American manufacturers to appreciate! I do not have the financial resources nor hours to do it justice, but with community support we can help shine the spotlight on these great manufacturers who deserve it. You can contribute your US made gear review here.
