Should BSA use distributors instead of their own scout shops

By the way, thanks for the suggestion on the Magellan pants.  I'm going to try some of the Magellan olive colored nylon switchbacks.  I stopped buying BSA pants when I bought four of the centennial uniforms and the uniform pants all failed in the first year.  The nylon switchbacks lasted forever.  I'll try the Magellan and see how good they are.

That's them. Have had them four years now are are my primary Scouting/Venturing/hiking pants. Been to Philmont twice and summer camps too.

Well BSA gear is not made in the USA; what peasant is working for the shirt I just got? Vietnam?

I bought a new uniform about a month ago.  The shirt was made in Bangladesh.  I don't recall looking at the tag in the pants to see where they were made.  More information to follow when I get home.

On the plus side, the red letters "BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA" were sown on rather than pressed on, as they have been for the past few years, so they will stay on, as opposed to some of our Scouts who are walking around with "UTS OF AMERICA" or other variations.
