I ordered it special with the heavier ropes for a 200+ pound person. They
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.
