All clothing I've bought from Vis before says made in Japan, just bought a pair of the 73' boots and they say made in China on them, I assumed they were made in Japan, anyone know for how long they have outsourced to China for?

A couple of years - the last pair of mine that were MIJ were some skynyrd Mocs from about 2012. Everything since then was made in china.

They've used China for a while, they use a very good factory around Dongguan which I believe does Goodyear welted. some of the very early stuff, (fbt etc) was made in Korea I think, now it's a mix of Japan for some special things and mostly China

The production in CHina started in 2008. The factory produces only for Visvim and is in Dongguan, owned by a Taiwanese family (the old bearded Grandpa we see on pictures during the Vis events, his wife and daughter)

What's the weatherproofness of 73 folk like, specifically the water resistance? Got a pair recently and they look and feel sturdy, but just in case I should avoid heavy rain or something id like to know…
