First of all, if the product costs half as much as ours, it’s not really a competitor for us. I don’t mean that to be as snooty as it sounds. But I know what materials and labor cost in the US and in developing countries and a bag that is half the price of ours would not be an apples-to-apples comparison. It just wouldn’t.
An item that costs half as much would not be made of the same materials or construction methods. We discussed some of these differences in another article.
