Melanzana is awesome stuff. I have a few pieces of their gear that I love....but Polarmax is definitely made domestically too:
"Polarmax® is the primary retail brand of Longworth Industries, Inc., located in West End and Candor, North Carolina. Celebrating 25 years of innovative technical base layer apparel, Polarmax® is a distinguished leader in the base layer marketplace.
With aggressive fabric development and product testing, a strong green story, and a completely vertical business structure, it is no wonder that Polarmax® is one of the nation’s top base layer apparel manufacturers.
Add the “Made in the USA” label, and you have the smartest choice for both consumers and retailers."
