“Industry standards”

The industry is constantly telling the consumer what is the best for them and therefore ,they write the rule book/ textbook on what is the “proper” execution or method/procedure for the best performance or longevity of a product…..

this is a very misleading and even deceiving practice because the big corporations or money companies in charge of the research, design and production of a product are also first and foremost, worried about their bottom line. money. Why sell you a product that will last 20 yrs. when they can sell you one that will last 5 and convince you that that is the expected life of a product when it should be 20 yrs? they want it to fail eventually so that you will have to replace it with another “new and improved for this year” version of the same rubbish….

an example of this is stitch length. industry standard is 10-15 stitches per inch. this creates 10-15 holes per inch in the fabric of the product thus creating a perforation or tear line. why not increase the thread diameter and decrease the stitch per inch to 8-10. this is what we do to minimize the number of holes per inch in our top quality fabrics.  the fewer holes per inch while maintaining seam integrity is ideal. instead of many holes creating a tear line, fewer holes will increase the strength of the seam. an added advantage of the 8-10 stitch per inch is increased water resistance. the fewer holes, the less amount of water dripping inside your tent.

The next level…

we have done our homework. that is why the products we offer are above the quality and performance of the industry same ole same ole. theirs is where it is at due to mass production and marketing. ours is at the next level because the money gets spent in research and design rather than advertising and mass marketing. we innovate and create gear that exceeds the demands of even ourselves. the process will not stop and we will not rest knowing that there could be and definitely is a better solution to the issues and problems that exist with the existing products. our gear evolves even daily. if an idea or solution works, we get it into prototype and then production as quickly as possible. call me and ask what i have new up my sleeve. you might be pleasantly surprised…
