I've given them a few "second" chances.

Every single time it falls apart within two weeks.

It's not stuff made for daily work. Weekend warrior stuff only.

I'm currently giving them (CG) a first try on some of their gear. So far, it has been Ok. But since they have a 5 year warranty, if I don't like it, I'll take it back. I haven't been to their new location yet.

I do like their freezeout stuff though.
