in the USA. I purchased mine (current model HHULB) about June this
it says 'Made in China'. How old is yours? Admittedly I did buy mine
through an eabay store, but nevertheless it has all the registered
trade marks attached to it. It also came with printed material with
the Hennessy contact information on it. I must say, I was surprised to
see the 'Made in China' tag on it as I too, was of the understanding
that it was made in the USA.

told me that it was made in the US before I bought it. My other HH, an Exped
Asym, is made in China and says so on the bag.
BTW, they didn't charge me more for the heavier-roped version, and it only
added 3 ounces to the whole thing. So, those of you who want to carry
ultralight, but aren't very light yourselves, you might keep this in mind!
I don't see how we can expect someone from another country to make their
products in our country. But I guess that's just me.
