IMHO, the material used is generally the same, imported by the same textile company. Unless its some proprietary high end super magic material they're trying to sell. Most stuff is just some type of nylon, get your hands on the item you like and look at the stitching, that's where the end product holds up. Are the Velcro tabs stitched with one stitch only? Are the seams triple stitched? I've had cheap products last forever because the stitching was really good.
Arbitrary enforcement of the law is the mark of tyranny. Citizens will always fight against it.
