Would motorfist benefit not being affiliated with Arctic Cat?

I love my stomper boots, and they have held up well, but I have been reading not so much complimentary things as of late.

Textron is a huge company. Lots of research & marketing.

And completely not relevant. They use R&D where they think they will see a return on investment.

I don't think it matters as they operate independently. My issue with motorfist is the brand image. The way they market it. D bags wear motorfist Really because of eVent material they are only brand that can compete with goretex gear which is exclusive to Klim

Imo they would be out of business if it weren’t for cat. Their quality sucks for the price they are trying to get. It would not surprise me if textron kills it.

I'm not sure most are aware they are owned by Cat or textron now. I've been happy with my gear from them - bought mostly on clearance - but it does seem like they've gone quiet on the snow side at least.
