When I was all "Made in China is inferior" (it was a phase mom!) I got a Veilance jacket, and I feel like I could've gotten a mainline Arcteryx and spend $200 on other things or save up. It is okay designed with no logo, but nothing it has is "of the future" - the nylon/ gore fabric, hardware, taping everything has been here for years if not decades.
