my kanken bag fake

Oh my goodness, I can’t believe I bought a fake Kanken bag. It’s almost too good to be true. I was so excited to have found a great deal online for a designer bag that usually costs hundreds of dollars. However, when I received it in the mail, I knew something was off. The canvas wasn’t the same quality as my other Kankens, the lining was different and the straps felt thinner.

I decided to do some research to make sure and gone online to check the authenticity of it. Little did I know, I had actually been scammed and my bag was a Kanken knock-off. I felt so foolish and embarrassed for not catching it a lot earlier.

It’s been such an awful experience, but all is not lost. I recently realized that although I got scammed, the bag is actually really good quality and looks just like the real thing. My friends can’t tell the difference and I don’t have to break the bank to have a designer bag.

Speaking of friends, some of them have also been scammed in the past buying fake Kankens. We commiserate together and it’s quite funny how we all got duped in different ways.

We’ve all since moved on though. We agree on never buying anything from a website that looks sketchy and to do thorough research into purchases. I guess this experience has been a lesson for us all and made us a little wiser.

I still have my Kanken bag fake and I love the way it looks. It’s a funny story to tell and a reminder to be more cautious when buying things online. Despite it all, I still get plenty of compliments on it and I’m never ashamed to carry it.

To expand on the topic in the other 4 sections of 5 paragraphs:

After digging deeper into the issue of fake Kankens, I’ve come across a few ways to spot the real thing from the imitations. Firstly, the materials used for the bag and the zippers are a dead giveaway. The zippers should have a mix of metal and plastic components, and they should also have a superior finish. The canvas should also be of top-notch quality and the straps should be just as robust and durable.

Secondly, the handles on a genuine Kanken bag will sit in place and not move. They nearly fit around the body of the bag, while the replica bags might fit loosely or look disproportionate to the rest of the bag. Furthermore, the label should also be of high-quality with logos and clear font. The real deal will also have a ‘wp’ mark near the logo that represents ‘Water Proof’.

Lastly, the price. Genuine Kanken bags start at around $80USD for the Mini bag and go up to $110USD for the Maxi bag, whilst the replica has a much lower price range. And remember, if it’s too good to be true, it probably is.

I recently gave a genuine Kanken bag to my best friend for her birthday. She was so surprised and ecstatic. She’d been wanting one for a while, and I was so glad to get her something she’d use and love. It felt like I was giving an essential item as a gift, rather than some materialistic item.

At the end of the day, I’m thankful for the experience I had with my fake bags Kanken bag. It’s been a lesson that I’ve learnt and it has also helped me to better value the products I’m investing in. Whether you have a genuine Kanken bag or a knock-off, it still serves its purpose and looks beautiful.
