Interesting read - https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/business/india-business/global-sportswear-giants-reduce-cricket-spends/articleshow/65761670.cms
wish Id read this sooner. Got some xt1.0 pads and gloves and the quality is poor - fraying and scuffing and splitting after a few uses. Maybe my expectation of pads lasting me years with todays throw away society was unrealistic.

Their Softs are made in the same factory as many other top end on the Softs on the market Id imagine given the volumes they shift.

I suspect youre right, I didnt have the same issues with the GM LEs however that are also Indian made and used them for years. Maybe my expectations are too high, but for 100 odd Id expect a top end pad to perform better. They have scuffed up something chronic and trimming piping has split and this is after two 10 minute net sessions - cant wait to dive on a dry wicket running a quick single.

Shame really as that aside the fit and protection is top notch.

That could be the case but you expect a good company's Quality Control to pick up something like that.
