Without calling out anything specifically, a few of these items i'm seeing posted have certainly had "downward trends". Not blaming anybody, the business climate is what it is and we certainly developed a taste for "cheap" and "profit maximization" over the last few decades. This whole throw-away mentality as opposed to repair and re-use bothers me, hopefully that trend is going away.

Sleeping Indian wool!!
Filson Wool.
Swanndri Wool.

If I lost my Sleeping Indian Guide coat I wouldn't hesitate to spend the $550 to get another one. It's 25+ years old and still one of the best hunting coats I have.

I was thinking the Remington Model 1100 but mine is only 50 years old so I better hold off a bit before I say it's reliable. I do have a Mosin made in 1942 that's pretty reliable.

Craftsman hand tools (hammer, screw drivers, wrenches, etc). Although they may not be made in America anymore, their warranty still stands. I recently broke a pair of needle nose pliers I bought 20+ years ago and took them in, the guy at the counter swapped them out no questions asked.

Redwing Boots (ok I will give White's a shout too) - great work boots that hold up to most anything you throw at them. Take care of them, and they take care of you. I have a pair whose sole is finally detaching after several years of abuse but the leather is otherwise in great shape.
