And you seriously don't think their are Chinese owned companies importing China products into America?

I have heard of US owned companies performing their own quality control once the product arrives here to make sure it is safe for consumers.

And yet, the first concern from the general public is that it came from china, which isnt really the real problem...

My favorite brand of jeans goes as far as to tell you who grew the cotton.

I often travel to China, Vietnam, and surrounding countries for work. Although quality control and cheaply made products are a significant concern, China has the ability (and increasingly so) to make very well-made products. There was a time when Made in Japan didn't have the same cache as it does now. HJC helmets, many made in China, are in fact high-scoring helmets in various safety tests. This video simply chose an example of cheap Chinese vs on-average-good-quality Japanese helmet.

I say this as an owner of Arai, Schuberth, Vemar, and X-Lite.
