Plus, made in the USA!!! Something that will I try damn hard to have stamped on everything I own.
The last Carhart cap I bought I found out was made in China and the last jacket and jeans were made in Mexico. I buy for quality and function first and if a US made product is equal in those areas I don't mind paying a littl extra. Growing up in the 60's and 70's I saw American manufacturing quality plumet in favor of profit. At the same time I saw Japanese quality rise and surpass American quality. When American manufacturers got the hint that American consumers preferred quality, then quality started improving.
In these times, there is almost nothing that is purely made in the USA. It's a world economy and usually some, most or all the parts are made overseas if it's assembled here.
If I'm looking for a car, I'll look at Audi, Toyota, Honda or Subaru. If I'm looking for a Truck, I'll get a Ford
and it might be made in Canada
Back to the level... it only takes a minute or two for me to mount my bubble level and when it's done, it's solid with a small profile. I do see some benefit for the flip out type but there's always tradeoffs.
