If you love your Country, buy American. If you can't afford it you probably don't need it. :usa:

Orca coolers. Made in Tennessee.

Cliff Walker, a veteran of the building and trade industry, and hardcore hunter decided to use his business acumen, passion for the outdoors and sense of pride in America to create a company that could produce what he couldn’t seem to find – at any price – high-end outdoor products made in the USA that performed as advertised. While it might seem hokey to some, he also wanted to find a way to put Americans back to work, and having ORCA products made in the USA was a way to do just that. The company’s first product was a cooler designed to withstand the rigors of rugged outdoor use by professional and novice alike and to perform far beyond the expectations of even the most critical outdoor enthusiast. ORCA coolers, made in America’s heartland, are the successful result. ORCA, however, isn’t just about selling product. The company recognizes its corporate responsibility and the need to give back to those who have helped make it successful. In that vein, the sale of ORCA products helps give back to conservation groups, wounded warrior programs, breast cancer research and many other great causes.

Unfortunately, they are designed in TN and made in China. But they make some cool products and based on reviews work similar to Yeti.

I believe you're correct. The mug and bag are made in China....the coolers though have the made in USA badge so hopefully they are legit and made in the USA.

What gets me is that even though the owner of ORCA has a sense of pride in wanting everything Made in America (And I believe his spiel and intentions), it kills me that the mug and bag and probably other accesories have to be made in China. When you calculate the shipping and back and forth, I just don't get how it could be that much cheaper to produce there. Why is our government allowing it to happen and why can't we produce stuff here for an "affordable" price. I think most folks would be fine with a lil premium for American Made goods, but when you start talking triple digit percentage more, that's where people just simply can't afford to even if they wanted to.
