KJUS? how to distinguish these fake jackets?

They could be over-runs from a ghost factory, meaning they are the "genuine" article (ie design and materials)...although they may need to substitute mis-match zipper colours etc...

counterfeit, fakes, and unauthorized production of stolen technology and designs is rampant from China right now.  The bill has come due for exporting production to a place where designers knew their designs would be copied or stolen outright, manufactured and sold at half the price as the genuine article.  In many cases there is no quality difference, but you just won't know until you own it.  Even experts at the companies having designs stolen often can't tell the difference. 

 

If you think clothing is bad, try buying something like headphones from Klipsch or Koss.

I'd say they are super fake. I would not buy something like this product with any kind of asian international address. Plus that grey and black colored coat is a terrible color. I wouldn't buy that color scheme no matter what, but that is just me.

e-mail the actual known manufacturer and ask them. Probably the best answer you will get and if they don't know of the fakes (unlikely) at least you let them know, maybe a free hat :-)

 

Seems like a heck of a price, local area sells this stuff for up to 800 bucks.

Couldn't agree more with the above.

*still waiting for the deluge of fake touring bindings, though*

The Asian shipping point does make it somewhat suspect. However, the price doesn't make it an automatic no. I spent this past weekend at the Burton Summer Sale (the joys of living in Burlington Vermont). This was a sale at the Burton headquarters, within peeing distance of Jake Burton's office (with good aim and a tailwind). My wife and I spent right around $300. We got 3 jackets, 4 pairs of pants, half a dozen tshirts, a belt, goggle lenses, etc etc. The retail bill was somewhere north of 2 grand. What model year is this stuff? That makes all the difference.
