Ordering from "cheapnorthface4sale.com"

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

Anybody place an order with "cheapnorthface4sale.com"?   They have good prices, but I've never heard of them.  Want to make sure they are legit.

Doesn't sound legit. What, are the prices like 1/4 of retail?

I am guessing not, got trapped once with a Spyder jacket so I am very sceptical. I could be wrong but that is just my guess.

The domain is registered with bizcn.com, a chinese registrar.  They have a traffic stats monitoring being done with cnzz.com, a chinese company.  They have broken, incorrect english in their FAQ.  I think it's pretty clear that it's a chinese based company.  To me, that means either knockoffs or "extras" that found their way out of the North Face factory.

 

Or, the simpler answer:  If you ever feel the need to ask someone "is this legit?", 99% of the time the answer is no.

I would avoid.  Also do a true price comparison.  Site seems to mark up prices and promote the discount.  For example on the

 

cheapnorthface4sale.com site:

The North Face Men's Apex Bionic Jackets Black Vest Store
 $155.00  $89.00
Save: 43% off

 

On Zappos and other sites you can get this jacket for about $90-99.  In this case the (up to) $10 is worth knowing the have the real thing and can return item, have cust service, etc.

For a small 'administration fee' ($20) I'll be happy to confirm that it is a Chinese knock-off. PM me for details on how to send me the funds.

If the name is important to you and you want the real deal buy someplace legit.  If the name is not then there is plenty of other import product options that will work as well as the fake but aren't counterfeit.

No, they're legit, I just bought some great beach front property in Arizona and a very cool Bridge in NY from them...  order away with confidence.  what is most interesting is that you are so interested in a recreational level product that can be bought for "cheap" prices anywhere......
