About Edge-HOG: The Brand and Where Their Products Made
To be a diver means to live a life filled with adventures. It is learning about new places and meeting new people, and—perhaps the most important—meeting oneself.
The American scuba equipment manufacturer Edge that makes and sells HOG regulators describes the diving lifestyle.
Their company name, Edge, means “always being on the edge of adventure. While HOG is short for “Highly Optimized Gear.” Their products sure live up to the tagline. Their gears are true “highly optimized.”
Edge Dive Gear has been around since 2007. Chris Richardson, one of the owners who started up the scuba equipment company, invented the HOG Gear brand. Richardson was responsible for all sales, marketing, and product development for both Edge and HOG. The brand quickly caught the diving community’s attention and established a reputation for quality, performance,e.
The company is in Georgia, USA. But the regulators and the rest of their products are manufactured in China to keep costs down. There are debates about whether this makes Edge-HOG products reliable, but the company assures that the brand quality will not sacrifice money.
Little can go wrong with the regulators, but it’s a given that divers want to make sure. Many divers have taken the plunge with Edge-HOG regulators and never regretted it.
Edge-HOG and other brands that use Chinese parts are that Edge-HOG passes those savings on to the consumers. China is perfectly capable of making high-quality products, but it is up to the manufacturer to ensure that.
Edge HOG does an excellent job of monitoring the quality of its equipment. If any problem comes up, they will be there to help solve it. Their excellent customer service is one of their selling points.
