riding gear advice

While I don't spend a lot of time here at ADV { I help manage another bike forum} I do value the vast experience available here. You guys { and gals} pound out the most miles of any riders. That brings with it an experience that's hard to come by. I ride a lot of miles myself, around 15k a year on my KLR and I know who makes good gear and who's to stay away from, what I need advice on , is what American companies are actually "American made" { no offense to our European brothers and sisters} I know Aerostitch and Klim are, but are there any others that are.

My reasoning is this, I'm in the market for new pants, while I'd like to say money isn't an issue, it is to an extent. The Dariens are in my price range, I wished Klim was but it isn't. I also want to purchase "American made" Are there any other, lesser known brands of quality that are.

Thanks,
Gunny
