I purchased a the north face gilet from a seller thinking it was 100% genuine, however when i received it I knew it was a fake straight away, the seller argued he had been happy with it and that it was real. (he had bought it and the sold it straight on by the way so that tells you something!) I was not put off though and took it to my local the north face store, They laughed when i showed them and told me it was indeed a counterfeit item as he put it! and gave my written confirmation on this I then proceeded to make a claim with ebay for a full refund.
I have noticed other sellers selling them as well and I think they have bought them from a site some where and then they a not happy with them so try and get rid of them on ebay at a profit. I stupidly paid £50.99 don't be ripped off even by single sellers if you think your paying for geniune then make sure it is.
Beware summit series do not make the nuptse vest as confirmed by the north face shop,
bad stitching and lose threads are common on fake north face and the material is shiny also label with a small red sticker on giving a size guide of a M or L for medium or large This is not a north face label it is fake fake fake!!
