do you think these are fakes
theyre selling lowepro bags for less than half price brand new on ebay, but they are from hong kong or china.

im a bit wary, i like a bargain but not at the risk of buying something that might not be waterproof or fall to pieces

do a search on ebay for Toploader Pro 75 AW and you will see what i mean

There are an awful lot of counterfeit goods on ebay- many being very difficult to tell apart from the originals- both the said item and its packaging. I guess if the item is REALLY inexpensive, one might conclude it's possibly a fake.
Curiously,however- maybe the originals are manufactured there (HK or China) anyway..!!

If it works, who cares who made it?

kazuya Dec 22, 2015 3:15 PM

yea they probly are made in same factory, my only worry is, strap snaps or crap padding, or getting caught out in the rain and it not be waterproof, ive the smaller version of the same bag so ill be able to compare them both side by side.

Yeah, but you're buying it, so it's not like you won't use it if it doesn't have double stitched seams like the genuine article.

The same maker may be supplying to Lowepro who must be selling it with "Lowepro" band.

The last time someone asked me that question, I just replied "Honey, they look real enough to me!"

She had these really enormous eyelashes, and other people thought they were false.
