I care. Quality is a very important consideration - however, I know I will pay more for a product made in my home country - purely for the fact of helping to keep employed the people that live in this country. I try my best to avoid all that globalization crap. we have to many unemployed people and too many US companies sending things to other countries so they can be made cheaper for higher profit - that's so lame.

Looks promising, although the cam is not in the ideal orientation, and the pulley diameter is pretty small.

I agree. i'm all for American made stuff, but this thing looks like it wouldn't haul a daypack.

:lol:

That's what I was thinking. That pulley is way small for heavy loads. Just got my Kong block-roll last week. It's huge, but when you're hauling 100's of lbs of gear you need the hauling device to match that task.

Sorry. In Australia ''pissed'' means drunk. Your iniyial post read like you had been on the turps. This is also Oz slang for being drunk.

No that's pretty damn smart of them. They make employment and new industry in LEDCs aswell as keeping greedy, consuming North Americans content.

They could be giving needy North Americans employment instead.

It looks about as flimsy as a petzel wall hauler. I know of a few including my own that has bent out in rolled area that retains the rope.......wall haulers that is......has any one tried this one with the small pulley? Ed may be right about that.
