    All Maratac products are made in China. I know people think that they’re US-made because of Maratac’s association with Countycomm and whatnot (and that the companies are both registered in CA), but you’ll notice that on Countycomm’s page it doesn’t mention Made in USA anywhere on any of Maratac’s products pages.

    ITP is a Chinese flashlight manufacturer – aside from aesthetic details (ridges instead of knurling) the Maratac is the exact same light.

    You can get a Peak LED Eiger (the best/cheapest actually US-made) flashlight, in aluminium, for 50 bucks – http://peakledsolutions.net/pocket_lights/pocket_lights/eiger.html

      @Evan Thanks for the heads-up about Maratac and Peak LEAD. I’ve replaced the Maratac with the Eiger on the single-page version of the gift guide.

    Make sure to check the size measurements with Columbiaknit. I ordered a crew neck t-shirt from them once and it was huge for its size. All of their products aren’t over-sized though, just check the measurements.
