"Why is stuff expensive?"
Inflation, labour costs overseas, materials costs, shipping costs (for the entire supply chain required to manufacture and distribute said gear). These things aren't cheap, and are always increasing in price. As companies have to pay more to get products manufactured, they have to pass those costs on to the cosumer in some form.
What, did you think they just all went into a meeting and said "Hey, let's charge more this year"?
Welcome to the real world.
