The spyder ski jackets sold so cheatp,is that fake?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
i have found some spyder pro ski jackets in a Chinese Shoping Web.
The price is too cheap to surprise me!
The price is 300-500 yuan equals to 40-65 dollars.
 i am going to buy a set.
Is that the real Spyder ?

The product will come with no hologram (I'm quite sure about that). Which means it's a fake.

Might be made in the same plants by the same people.  Local firms sometimes churn out a few runs of unofficial products when the vendor isn't paying attention. It's probably trademark infringement, but I'd pay fifty bucks for it if I liked the look and feel.  If it falls apart after half a season you're only out fifty bucks right?

I received one from the UK and first time I wore it the SPYDER lettering came off. I sent it back to Spyder and they told me it was counterfeit and should have confiscated it but they sent it back to me anyways.If it looks too good to be true that it probably is. As crgildart said though, for fifty bucks it might be worth it.Everything else looks authentic right down to the spider lift ticket holder.

You can count on this assumption only if you are a very lucky guy. 

Priest, you can buy it but after that, go to a store and touch the original Dermizax fabric. Has nothing to do with the plastic you just bought.

Maybe you are right.
There are many WOrld Brand products sold in that WebSite whose price is much lower than the Pro Stores ,while the seller said all the products come from the same plants without any tags .

As i like the style of this set ,maybe i am not going to buy on set.i am sure.

oh,thanks.
The reason why perfect ski jackets's high price is beacuse the New-tech Shell and the waterproof fabrics like Gore-tex,Dermizax,eVent.

the purpose We use pro ski jackets  is mostly  their well waterproof and breathability.

so, to buy a fake one is not a wise choice.

I wouldn't pay $50 for a fugly jacket.

Instead of buying a (faked) high-end big brand, I would buy an obscure brand that uses original fabric, thermo-welded seams and good accessories. It will cost you more than $50 but you will not pay the "awareness tax". Buy honest products that actually work. And I bet you can find these kind of products in China.
Also you must not forget the importance of a good baselayer and a thermallayer (when needed) in order to use an effective ski clothing system.

Not all Spyder jackets come with holograms- An authentic spyder jacket will have spyder imprinted lining, a clear plastic "Made in" sticker, some come with goggle lens wipes. The information in this blog is outdated and is scaring people from buying authentic Spyder jackets online that don't conform to 2005 standards.

Maybe because it's almost 3 years old?
