Wetsuit made in North America?

Looking for a wetsuit for the woman. Would really like one made in North America. Canada, Mexico or USA. USA preferred. I tried searching the forums and the web, but no dice. Any ideas?

Henderson makes some great wetsuits and are made in the US. I have a 5mm Titanium Hyperstretch that I bought for diving and now use kayaking. I love it for kayaking. Henderson also owns other brands and makes other sport specific wetsuits i.e. triathlon and surfing. Henderson USA - Henderson

Promotion makes great wetsuits, out of Hood River, but I'm not sure if they are made here or not.

Thanks.

Those suits all look nice. We're looking for a front zip farmer-style for boating. Promotion has a couple that look real good. I'll have to call to see where they're made.

Just a tip... The farmer john style wetsuits are not that warm. A lot of body heat will escape through the chest and shoulders.
I would suggest a short sleeve wetsuit. Sure a farmer john is easy on/off. But if it is cold she will have on layers anyway negating that benefit.
Happy shopping.
