Um, this seller's feedback is exceptional, only 8 negatives out of 3418 transactions, on that alone the likelyhood of it being a fake is very low. Then look at his detailed feedback, out of the last 317 transactions, he has maintained a five star rating for the item being as described. If you read down the last couple months, you'll see that buyer after buyer OF SPYDER JACKETS give him stellar feedback, and since he seems to deal primarily in high end skiwear, he probably can tell a fake. Knockoff sellers could never maintain that good of a feedback record, and it's unlikely that this guy could be duped. Any powerseller on ebay knows to watch for fake merchandise.
Look at the zippers, they are waterproof zippers, which are expensive and wouldn't likely be on a fake. And the embossed Spider logo. Oh, and the grid that Northcheels mentioned is ripstop nylon, which IS what the genuine article
is made of (ripstop is the type of weave, and is widelty used in quality sports wear). The pictures look like the real deal to me.
Um, so, before posting (in) a thread questioning someone's credibility, do a little research rather than relying on others to tell you, the internet is a powerful tool if you use it to relieve doubt rather than to increase doubt.
Oh, and one more thing, the price may be reasonable now, but it's not until the last few minutes of an auction when the cagey bidders enter the scene, they know better than driving the price up by competing with new ebayers who haven't learned the folly of one upsman style bidding. You might get a deal, and you might lose to a sniper.
You might shop around
