Most people have too much crap, much of it made far, far away. Aerie is not primarily a clothing company. We are a training organization. When we do sell clothing or kits with our names on them, we do everything possible to make sure they are made as locally as possible, made well, and done so in a sustainable manner. Our apparel is embroidered and printed right here in Missoula, MT and our first aid kit bags are assembled and embroidered in the Pacific Northwest. We also sell a few essential first aid items like SAM splints, pocket masks, etc. Again, this is not our primary business. If we sell it, we do so because we've used this exact brand, trust it and believe it's the best available.
