Much better prices. These are REAL Resolute. One of the earlier prototype.
Awesome, the guy was asking 100 for it, so i'm most likely gonna purchase it from him. Thanks you very much for the help you've provided.

Haha, I meant pics not prices. Stupid auto correct. I have to inform you though these are a very big fit. They are relaxed fit meaning they are ideal for layering in extreme cold conditions. If this is your purpose then it's worth the dollar.

That's definitely a FAKE.
What gives it away? I'm no expert but it fooled me.

Find this red jacket here in germany. Didn't all the new jackets have this hologramm inside? This jacket has a little Artic Disc Logo.

Can you please check if it is real or fake.

Thanks.

Hologram didn't appear till late 2010 and this just means this was produce prior to that.

The seller says that the jacket is brand new and that some of the jackets didn‘t have a hologramm.
So i think there is something wrong with the jacket.

Thank you for your support.

It took me awhile to find out which post you were referring to but I have finally found it going back 5 pages. The way I authenticate is to look for detail patterns and where the counterfeit have violated it. I'm glad you brought up this particular jacket again because it might look good at first glance but it broke way too many security norms. I give you a few example.

1. Many things wrong with the badge like the compass, the island, the letters but the obvious example is the missing stem at the end of the last two maple leaves.

2. The TEI is a 3. Counterfeiter often makes mistake by not matching up to the jacket. I have never seen CG make this mistake.

3. The manufacturing tag's ink is too heavy and smudgy. The info tag font type is incorrect and also the weird cut-off at the bottom. Three generations of info tags that dates back to 2007 and the company have never changed their distinctive fonts.

4. The flimsy pouch material and the picture on the pouch doesn't match up.

I can go on with the down tag, the shells and many other things wrong but it would take too long. I hope this helps.

The Expedition are one of those kind of jacket that doesn't sell well in places that doesn't have hash winters. Sometimes the product sits on the shelf for years and would never see an owner. Without hologram, it's pre-2010 production.

Either that or the owner of the jacket isn't being completely honest. Most of the time, if the owner of the parka takes really good care of their jackets or don't use it much, it could stay looking like new after 7 years. The pictures are blurry so I can't say it looks used or in good condition. Also I can't really make of the blurry picture but the string on that paper tag seems broken and tied up. The string is like a security seal.

Either way, I find that most owners want to get the most value of their jacket so they can be deceptive like some salesman. The blurry pictures could be the deceptive tool in my opinion.

Hi all,

I'm looking at a Mystique parka in the auction here: https://www.ebay.ca/itm/Black-Canada-Go ... 3055746400

There are more photos on the listing, but I've attached the major "giveaways" here. Seller claims it was purchased "in Toronto" in mid-2016. Photos do not show whether there is a hologram tag or not, but I've sent them a message about it.

The old URL on the inside tag means it's probably older stock but I'm a little worried that the embroidery are a little less "crisp" than I have seen on authentic jackets. Plus there seems to be a misspelling of "Fabrique au Canada." What do you all think?
