You must have a different Amazon page than me because about 99% of the products don't list where it was made and people are always in the question section asking where stuff was made. As far as I can find products are required to be marked with country of origin but nothing I see says it is required to show that on a listing or site. It just needs a "Made in ????" somewhere on the box or product.Just received my Tethrd Hys Strap in the mail today. Had I known it was made in China, I would not have purchased it. The only way the consumer was to know this is by receiving the product, as there is no indication of country of origin on the Hys Strap product page.
This seems very deceptive advertising (or lack of advertising), in that the American Flag and Made in America/USA are prominent on (almost) all of the Tethrd products. In fact, at the bottom of their home page, there is a Made in USA symbol both before and after where it says Tethrd - Get Connectd/Copyright 2018! I guess they need to update that.
If shipping it back wasn't so expensive (as a percentage of the product price), I would do it and just make my own.
Curious how many other products are not made here in the US and not labeled as such on the Tethrd site. Every product that I see on Amazon, etc. indicates the country of origin, so much so you would think there is a law to ensure the consumer is aware of it.
For what it is, the product is fine. I just would like to keep my money supporting local manufacturers.
I have never seen that about the saddles.You don't need a Facebook account to check tethrd's page. I've never had one and I was just checking on shipping updates because my friend had one on order. Are the saddles going to be made in China. I thought they said they were. I'm too lazy to try and find the post...
Obviously an oversight since moving part of it overseas. Return your hys strap and tell them why, then watch Ernie's YouTube video to make your own, if it bothers you that much. Pretty sure any other company isn't putting out detailed instructions on how to make their stuff.Firehunter,
But this situation is a bit different. At the bottom of every single Tethrd page it says Made in America twice! It is not silent as in your example.
Preach. That’s what I was thinking. Most textiles no longer come from America. So I ended if it was stitched up here.... probably not ‘MercianWould it be better made in the usa with foreign materials
