I have the same MEC bag from 90s... I used to like the quality of MEC brand bags a lot and if you ever loose or break a clip buckle, they will sew a new one for you while you wait for free.coolwasabi wrote: ↑ Not boycotting would be "politics" too.
You're just upset that they didn't pick your side. Which... fine. But just say that then instead.
Anyway, agree with others that said that Mountain Equipment Co-op actually died a long time ago. It's too bad. They had a nice little thing going on. Bags, camping gear, climbing gear... quality stuff. Of course, that's the problem: it was a nice *little* thing and their board wanted a *bigger* piece of the market so they went more mainstream and even watered down their classics.
I'll miss ya...
MEC lost direction when it decided to be a retail outlet for the masses by carrying several brands and No longer designing its own brand equipment.
