getting much better

When the Swany production went to China the quality leather was replaced with inferior, cheap paper thin leather. When companies decide to outsource they should teach the new manufacturer how to make the product but I guess that would cost too much so the consumer has to deal with products that are not made right until sales go down and finally some quality control is introduced.Although unfortunately still made in China probably by slave labor, this year Swany has actually used a leather that has a substantial quality feel to it reminiscent of the good old days of USA quality ski gear.
