As enthusiasts of our brand know, all of our kydex gun holsters are made right here in the United States, and that’s a fact that we’re incredibly proud of! We believe in making quality products that are built to last. After all, if it can’t stand the test of time, it’s almost like throwing money away. Or, as your grandpa used to say, “Buy it nice or buy it twice.”
That’s why we’re proud to offer a lifetime guarantee on our products. They’re designed to hold up over the years so you can get plenty of use out of them. We’re really passionate about quality items made by people here in the states, and that’s why in today’s post, we’d like to share a couple of other companies we think are doing things the right way and making their items in the good old US of A. If that’s something that’s up your alley as well, keep reading to learn more.
Made In America Brands We Admire
The Vermont Flannel Company
Who doesn’t love a good button up flannel shirt? When it’s cold outside, they’re warm and comfortable. It’s even better when they’re made by a company dedicated to doing it right. The Vermont Flannel Company makes shirts for men, women, and kids, as well as offering flannel blankets, pajamas, and more. A family business — something we also admire because that’s how we run things at Eclipse Holsters — they’ve been making their clothing and other items in the United States for 25 years. If you love stuff that’s made in America, you know how hard it can be to find clothes; the good news is that if you need a flannel shirt or two, this company has you covered.
You’ve probably heard the phrase “they just don’t make things like they used to.” In the case of Lodge Manufacturing, it’s because they’re making them better than they used to. As makers of heavy duty cast iron skillets, Lodge recently expanded their plant in Pittsburgh and they’re making some items that you’ll be able to use, abuse, and hand down for generations to come. Every kitchen should have a cast iron skillet in it, and these are the best of the best. Whether you’re grilling a steak or cooking up some eggs, cast iron is really hard to beat.
Every home needs a nice wool blanket for those chilly nights. Finding a good wool blanket though…well, that can be a challenge. Luckily, Woolrich is still making all of their wool products here in the U.S. No matter your preferences or style, there’s something that will look right at home in your house. Whether it’s a reproduction of a Civil War era blanket, a timeless buffalo plaid blanket, or something else entirely, you’re sure to love their designs. As of the time of this writing, they even have what they call a “Freedom Throw Wool Blanket” with a depiction of the flag on it, and you know that’s something we can get behind.
In a day and age where everyone just keeps notes on their smartphone, a notebook might feel like a thing of the past. We think that there’s still something to be said for tucking a pocket notebook away and jotting down grocery lists, ideas, or reminders though. That’s why we highly recommend Field Notes. Known for their smart design and multiple notebook options, a Field Notes notebook is a great choice for anyone who likes to do things the old fashioned way. They also feature a number of limited edition items with unique details and features. Some have even started to collect these items for their rarity as they increase in value. From pocket notebooks to pencils to calendars to weekly planners, there’s something for everyone.
You may have seen us highlight Filson products on our blog before, and that’s because they’re some of the best around. The company has been around since the mid-1850s, and they started off by making jackets and workwear for timber crews working in the Pacific Northwest. Needless to say, their items needed to be able to stand up to tough weather, and that’s when their slogan was born — “Might as well have the best.” It’s a phrase that still holds true today. Their mackinaw wool and tin cloth pieces are still designed and produced in the United States, and our opinion is that whether you need a bag that can hold up to some abuse or a jacket that will last you a lifetime, Filson is the way to go.
Carrying On a Proud Tradition of Quality MIUSA Products
Whether it’s one of our custom kydex gun holsters or our new Lunar Dump Trays, the products that we make are thoughtfully designed and built to last. We take great pride in being part of a long tradition of people who make things in the United States. In this day and age, it’s easier than ever to ship a design off to a factory overseas and hope for the best. That’s not how we want to do things.
When we make things here, we can guarantee that our employees are earning a fair wage and that our products are being crafted with care. If we were to send things off to be made overseas…well, that’s not something we want to do because we care about the quality of the goods that we build. All too often, you hear about health issues that arise in factories in countries where there aren’t as many regulations. In many instances, there is no regard for human health or the health of the environment. We’re dedicated to making our holsters here because it allows us the right level of control.
Add in the fact that you get a lifetime guarantee with our products and the value you get just can’t be beat. Have a question? We’d love to hear from you! Ready to purchase a gun holster that you’ll love for years to come? Have a look around and order yours today!
