For the 2016 SEMA show, WARN had redesigned and released a brand new line of VR Series winches. Yes, unlike their premium line of winches that are made in the USA, the VR winches are made overseas but they now have many of the same features as their Zeon winches and now come with a 7 year warranty. From what I've been told, they are also slightly more affordable than their previous VR winches as well.

What I really liked was their all new recovery kit that now has a bag that is designed as a back pack, has compartments for cleaner and easier storage of your gear and has straps that allow you to use the pack as a winch line dampener.

Pretty sharp, i like the new tow hooks.
The strap and gloves look like the same ones that come with the warn bag in the willys editions.

Still dont want a china winch, but glad to see they stepped up their game. This may make it easier for me to move into a warn.

While I really don't NEED any of that stuff, it is very appealing and I may just buy it. Any idea on price for that recovery kit? Ballpark figure?

Their previous heavy duty recovery kits are between 3-400 so i would assume around that range, maybe a little higher this time.
