  1. Expand the picture of the pen fishing pole emsemble on Amazon and you will clearly see the the fishing line is “Made in China”. So much for 100% “Made in America”.

  2. Doan Magnesium fire starter, a classic that is included in some U.S. military survival kits. Comes with a spark rod on one of the edges. One of the 1st line EDC woods carry items.

  3. “Many American preppers prefer to buy only gear and supplies that are made in the USA as a way of showing patriotism and support for the country. Others prefer to buy American made products for quality reasons.”

    Survivalists among the Top 1% ought to appreciate this list. Much of the stuff was grossly overpriced. $14 5-gallon plastic buckets. A $70 AM/FM radio! Anyhow, I’ve known for many years that large retailers can arrange for their stock to be labeled with just about any country of origin they want.

  4. Zachary its illegal to claim made in the USA on a product when its not. The Federal Trade Commission goes after them and fines them a lot.
