During the program development process, soldiers and warfighters were interviewed, listened too, and participated in on going wear test evaluations! The focus from the beginning was to provide needed, durable, comfortable, compression boot socks. During the evaluation process modifications were made; until the final development samples, received consistent highly recommended evaluations. The evaluation process did not stop there and ongoing evaluations continue to be performed by soldiers, warfighters, fire, wild fire, emergency and rescue workers.

The LEGEND® Compression boot sock program is user, function based consisting of three core compression boot sock styles. The LEGEND® Compression Merino Wool All Weather, Compression Merino Wool Cold Weather and the LEGEND® Compression Warm Weather Superior Moisture Wicking Micro Channel, Hydrophilic Nylon boot socks. In extreme or varying cold conditions, two styles can be layered trapping warm air between the layers for greater insulation.

Having met the criteria for this Certification we are in a position to provide greater safety to our flight, shipboard, special duty, deployed, fire and rescue, defenders and rescue workers.

FTC Issues Rule to Deter Rampant Made in USA Fraud

Thursday, August 12th, 2021

Made in USA labels will finally mean goods were made in America

The Federal Trade Commission finalized a new rule that will crack down on marketers who make false, unqualified claims that their products are Made in the USA. Under the rule, marketers making unqualified Made in USA claims on labels should be able to prove that their products are “all or virtually all” made in the United States.

Commissioner Rohit Chopra was joined by Chair Lina Khan and Commissioner Rebecca Kelly Slaughter in a statement, which noted the rule will especially benefit small businesses that rely on the Made in USA label, but lack the resources to defend themselves from imitators. The new rule codifies a broader range of remedies by the FTC, including the ability to seek redress, damages, penalties, and other relief from those who lie about a Made in USA label. It will enable the Commission for the first time to seek civil penalties of up to $43,280 per violation of the rule.

While stiff penalties are not appropriate in every instance, they send a strong signal to would-be violators that they abuse the Made in USA label at their peril.

“The final rule provides substantial benefits to the public by protecting businesses from losing sales to dishonest competitors and protecting purchasers seeking to purchase American-made goods,” said Commissioner Chopra. “More broadly, this long-overdue rule is an important reminder that the Commission must do more to use the authorities explicitly authorized by Congress to protect market participants from fraud and abuse.”

In 1994, after the North American Free Trade Agreement took effect, Congress enacted legislation authorizing the FTC to seek penalties and other relief for Made in USA fraud, but only after the Commission issued a rule. However, there had long been a bipartisan consensus at the FTC that Made in USA fraud should not be penalized. The final Made in USA Labeling Rule changes course on the Commission’s longtime approach.

The rule does not impose any new requirements on businesses. Instead, it codifies the FTC’s longstanding enforcement policy statement regarding U.S.-origin claims. By codifying this guidance into a formal rule, the Commission can increase deterrence of Made in USA fraud and seek restitution for victims.

Over the course of the rulemaking, the FTC heard from hundreds of ranchers and shrimpers concerned about Made in the USA labels that mislead consumers. The Commission is pleased that in conjunction with this announcement, USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack has announced that the USDA will complement the FTC’s efforts with its own initiative on labeling for products such as beef, and other agricultural products regulated by the Food Safety and Inspection Service.  

The Commission issued a notice of proposed rulemaking for this rule in June 2020. The Commission received more than 700 comments on the proposed rule, most of which either were supportive, or sought changes that were not legally permissible. The final rule adds a provision allowing marketers to seek exemptions if they have evidence showing their unqualified Made-in-USA claims are not deceptive.

The Made in USA Labeling Rule, which will be published in the Federal Register, incorporates guidance set forth in the Commission’s previous Decisions and Orders and its 1997 Enforcement Policy Statement on U.S. Origin Claims.

Consistent with this guidance, the rule will prohibit marketers from including unqualified Made in USA claims on labels unless: 1) final assembly or processing of the product occurs in the United States; 2) all significant processing that goes into the product occurs in the United States; and 3) all or virtually all ingredients or components of the product are made and sourced in the United States.

The rule applies only to labeling claims. The FTC will continue to bring enforcement action against marketers that make deceptive U.S.-origin claims falling outside the rule under Section 5 of the Federal Trade Commission Act. The FTC is authorized to seek penalties for violations of the rule. It does not supersede, alter, or affect any other federal statute or regulation relating to country-of-origin labels.

The Commission vote approving publication of the final Made in USA Labeling Rule in the Federal Register was 3-2. Commissioner Christine Wilson also issued a dissenting statement on the rule, and another dissenting statement regarding the overall meeting agenda.

Hardweather – Made In USA Caps

Tuesday, July 13th, 2021

I keep hearing that no one can source made in USA caps. Meet Hardweather. Their caps aren’t just made in the USA, they are made in The Black Hills of South Dakota?.

Their two styles are the Camper and 5 Panel caps. Granted, they aren’t cheap, but that’s because they are made from great materials in small batches.

Features include hydration compartment, padded shoulder straps, 5 external pockets and compression straps.

Multi-Purpose Perfection

“My first experience with the MPP was borrowed from a friend during a shooting event. He swore by it, and let me borrow it for a few events to try out for myself. I was so impressed, I had to buy my own. This pack excels at modular packing and light carry. It fits far more gear than I anticipated, any never once showed signs of breaking. The stitching was superb and heavy duty. I’ve used his to create my range IFAK kit that I also leave in my truck for expedient ALS. I highly recommend this pack to everyone.”
