Going by how you describe it, I'd assume it is a fake.
Had some cool finds today.
I think I found that guide and was swearing when the photos wouldn't load. I have North Face stuff that I bought years ago retail, but nothing recent with which to compare. I think it's fake and I would trust my gut instinct as I held it. Greed took over as I had really good luck with a (100%) legit XL in red that I found a little while back. It quickly went to a police officer in Vienna. Yes, he used his official police-issued email address and gave me his home address. I thought it was funny.
I don't honestly know the name. Assuming high quality? Either way, I do think the shorts are cool.

We bought my wife's car last fall. She wanted something easy and enough space to cart the dog. Found an Opel kombi that didn't have many kilometers. It had it's annual check a couple of months before and had been driven fewer than 2,000km since. It had checked out with nothing major. The owner had a good reason to sell it (they had 2 cars and this was from his wife's parents). 1 owner, new exhaust. So, we took it to get our annual inspection and it failed...for about 6 reasons. I was originally told it would be in the neighborhood of €1000-€1500 and that figure jumped to €3000 today. I have only a few weeks to decide (sticker expires an it's no longer allowed on roads) whether to pump money into it or get rid of it and buy something else. The thing is, no one will want it if it can't get the right sticker. It's a nice car in good condition. It does great with fuel (a little math says around 40 miler per gallon) and we only bought it less than a year ago. Sorry, had to vent, these things happen in life...but this one bothers me!
