Manufactures Origin

Post by Journeyman » Fri Apr 11, 2008 12:37 am

My AE Expedition arrived today and I was quite shocked to see that on the side of the box it said "Made in China"!!!! Can you confirm that the Chinease have a contract to make these kayaks or have I been sold an immitation or badged version of the original AE product???
Where was yours made???

Made in China

I bought an AE - Advanced Frame - a couple of years ago. It is packed away right at the moment so I can't check on where it was made. I did look at the REI website and; according to the description and specs of this item, it is "IMPORTED".
I am assuming that it is imported from, guess where, China. Isn't everything made there today? Shocked? Not me..... I'm slowly getting used to it.
I have to go now and get my second cup of coffee...... grown in China of course.
