Seeing that a SF member recently purchased a fake CG coat online, I want to take a second to discuss how to avoid doing so in this thread. First off, CG provides a page on their site where they discuss counterfeit CG gear and list websites that provide fakes. Unfortuntely CG can't keep up with how many fake CG gear sites appear, so the list is just one tool to use. If you want to be 100% sure when making a purchase online, you need to first see if they are listed on the official online retailers list. This list only covers Canada and the States. This is the current list of online retailers. If you want to see what retail stores carry authentic Canada Goose, then use this page on the official site. By default it will detect your IP address location and list stores in your area. You have two options on that page. You can either enter a specific address and search by country (along with including a radius) or you can search specifically by state/province or country. My friend purchased from an online US retailer this fall called Campsaver but was worried after getting his coat that it was potentially fake. He contacted CG and they explained that if you search for the company using their search tool in the state of Utah, the retailers establishment pops up. (They are based in Utah.) So just because a store isn't listed on the online retailer list, it doesn't mean your CG is fake. I think their system could be more clear if they simply had an additional page that listed stores throughout the world instead of their current search tool which isn't all that clear. Lastly, the web is filled with websites selling counterfeit CG gear. If you do a Canada Goose jacket search using Google Shopping you'll probably be treated to more fake CG gear than real. The common sense approach is that if the price seems too good to be true, it is. Canada Goose likes to brag that their apparel never goes on sale, but that isn't true. You can occasionally find discounts online but it is almost always around the end-of-winter/spring/summer. Occasionally a retail store will offer a sale on CG gear, but almost always after Christmas. Lastly, websites like Ebay, Craigslist, and Kijiji are filled with people selling fake CG gear. The Expedition and Chilliwack seem to be especially popular faked CG coats. So if you do purchase from one of those sites, just do your best to make sure it's a real coat. Here are two online guides.
