My friend, do you know how to spot a fake Kanken bag? It’s really tricky! I recently found out when I ordered one thinking it was real. I was so deceived! I can tell you, I read all the same reviews that reassured me it was real – it was listed on the same sites that sold original Kanken replica bags. But when it arrived at my doorstep, I knew right away that it was not original.
I was really upset, firstly because I’d already spent money on a fake, and secondly because I had expected to get a genuine, beautiful Kanken bag. I had actually been saving up for months so that I could purchase it, and now this! Ugh, the disappointment was so much.
But I had to look at the bright side of things; at least I now know what to look for when I try to purchase one again. The differences in design become so clear once you know what to look out for. The fake one I bought was not even close to the real bag’s quality in terms of design. It was made of different materials and had a poorer range of colors. Even the exterior design of the fake was drastically different – it was too decorated and had zippers not found in the original bags. It was so patently obvious that it was a fake now.
Upon further reflection, I realized that cost is also an important indicator of a fake. Most fakes are cheaper, which is why they can be so deceiving. For a fake Kanken bag, which is so intricately designed, one should not expect to pay much less than what it normally costs. This is why researching the average cost is very important, even if it’s listed on the same website as original bags.
Another key consideration is the seller. If it’s an established seller with a good reputation, like OutdoorsOnline.com, they will only list original Kanken bags. That is why I much prefer to buy from a trusted seller even if it might cost a little more. That way you know you are buying the original, and there’s no “accidental” purchase of a knock-off.
And that’s the story of my fake Kanken bag! I learned my lesson, and I hope you do too!
Another important factor to reflect upon is the warranty. The manufacturer of the original Kanken bag does not provide warranty or support for fake ones. The trustworthy sellers who only list original Kanken bags provide a warranty for at least a couple of years, so you know you’re getting an original if they do.
It’s also important to check for reviews of the company you are buying from. There’s nothing better than purchasing an original bag from a well-reputable seller like Amazon, which has an extensive feedback system in place that lets you know you are getting an original product with great quality.
And if you are still not sure, try searching for images from a website or a store selling the original Kanken bag. This way you’ll be able to compare the details yourself and make sure it’s an original. With all the technology around us, it’s quite easy to check any details of the product you are buying.
What’s more, some original Kanken bags come with a checker website. You can easily type in the product code and find out whether it’s a genuine article. Unfortunately, the fake ones don’t have this feature – but if you have access to the internet, you can, of course, research yourself before buying.
Another detail to look at before buying an original Kanken bag is the type of fabric it is made from. The original bag is made from a durable, lightweight material, and the fake bags made from material that is lighter and cheaper. This is why it’s so important to read the description and check the material before you purchase.
Also, it’s good to pay attention to the type of hardware used in the bag. Most fakes use a cheaper, flimsier hardware, while the original one is much stronger and made from more durable material.
Another tip I heard is that if the price on the website is too good to be true, it probably is. Another tactic employed by sellers is to reduce the prices on the fake bags to make it seem like a real deal. It’s always wise to be aware of these types of tactics.
