    Look inside the jacket. See the label? What does it say? Does it say where this jacket was made? Is it made in USA?

    The tag says
    USWINGS.COM
    DWC NO. 30-1415
    A.C. CONTRACT
    USA

    I'm assuming the components are from China, but they are assembled here in the US since the tag doesn't clearly state "Made in the USA". Their site has a link to their factory in NJ which I put below.

    USW does some factory sharing with Schott (and others) for the US made jackets. Many (most) are made overseas - usually the lower-end units. Still good for the price...

    Saw this thread this morning and for $195.00 I had to pull the trigger.
    A2-2000 dark brown goat skin.
    Now the obvious next question is how quickly does US Wings process and ship their orders?
    Anyone know?????
    Regards,

    I've a few. Took ~6-8 days to CA. Assuming in stock, should be rather quick. But the sale may have them working harder at the moment. Maybe not.

    The way I heard it, for the past decade all USW jackets have been made by Schott -except the ones from China. USW no longer has a factory in the USA. Some years ago David Hack (USW) bought Cooper but that's all over.

    That sounds right, as in checking their website again it mentions only their Signature Series are specifically made in the US on the factory page.
    "Our US Wings-labeled Signature Series™ jackets are made right here in the USA!"
