You get what you pay for. In the US, anything other than ACCO is likely to be suspect. If it doesn't come with certificates of origin and these can't be supplied on request, run a mile. Avoid any chain made in China. It is likely to be poorly constructed, poorly graded, and poorly galvanized.

Nb. this does not mean that marine stores are necessarily any better. There are those which only stock cheap junk.
