Question:

Are the cases from Sportsman's Guide any different from the ones that come from IMA?

TIA

The first one I received came from IMA - the snaps were tight and torn out of the fabric when attempting to open. I sent back to IMA and the second one had snaps that would allow it to be opened.
IMA was great about making the exchange. Not unlike several items from IMA the cases are made in India.

I bought 4 from IMA at the creek in October. At least I think that's who it was. I did get to hand pick them and they all worked fine. I sold 2 and kept one. There was a original MILLS there at another table to compare and other then the material, all looks the same. And the snaps worked good. If you get a tight snap, don't force it, work it around a little or put it on a solid surface and push the pin part with your thumb and hold the base of it with your other hand. I had a 5 cell pouch like that and once you get it apart, you can pop it back on easy. Just do it several times and it will work good. It's like they put it together and paint the brass and it seals it.

I bought two from IMA about a week after the Creek. They honored their special Creek price since they apparently ran out and I missed them. I thought that was pretty decent of them. Both of mine work fine and I have no complaints. I've not had a chance to compare with an original but for $40 bucks you can't go wrong.
