I've never been disappointed with my Pata-gucci either.
I think it's misleading to say that gear made in China is not quality or not worth the money. I know there's a lot of cheap [email protected] that are made in China, but then there are some decent stuff too. It all in the quality control of the products... if it doesn't pass the QC with Patagonia, then it won't be accepted and delivered to consumer.

MEC stuff is nice too and from what I remember, a lot of stuff is made overseas as well. I was told that both MEC and Patagonia check the factories that the gear is made for quality and for proper treatment of the factory workers, if that is the case, I am willing to pay more for their products.
