Terrible shame if true. Big ball drop by Textron how they handled this.

Probably lost money on all the zippers they have had to put in my coat and shut her down. I hope this one lasts.

Sounds like they're trying to save a buck, bringing in kimpex junk

I see the website contact info is to a marketing joint in Eau Claire Wisconsin. So much for anything from Idaho.

I have the full Carbide Jacket and Bibs. Love them - but they are gone now as well. Guess I switch next time to something else. My Wife needed a new jacket and found a FXR new model this year that she liked. Time will tell how that holds up.
