    Fitzandgiggles.co.nz

    Has anyone had experience from this shop? Prices seem unbelievably good, that's why I'm asking! Could be a scam..

    Someone with a desktop might be able to tell a little easier than off my phone.

    Cheers
    Tim

    Extremely dodgy. On the "contact Us" part there is no address, phone number or any other identifying features. Talks about Zip codes in the shipping part so obviously not NZ.
    I would give it a wide birth

    Cheers, Just confirming my suspicions. Glad my radar was working properly, how do you report this sort of website to get them shut down?

    Welcome to the Chinese copy market!

    When I was in Hong Kong last I went to one of these types of "outdoor" stores and was amazed at how incredibly detailed the copies were. But you can feel it, especially in the weight of the boot. When I interrogated the salesperson it was quite funny because after a couple of probing questions and friendly smiles let's just say that there was no denial...

    It’s funny though because our race to the absolute bottom price on anything and everything has created this market.

    Nice shit costs money. If you want it, fucking pay for it.

    And I do pay for quality. But my hard earns arnt going to hunting and fleecing. I'll shop around and find the best price most definitely and I'm not ashamed of that.. Last pair of Lowas Tibets were a tad over $300 to my door. There's not a chance I'm throwing 6 or 700 handy on a pair so the rich can get richer (Of course someone still making money)

    In this instance I was after advise about a particular website selling gear cheaper than the other retailers. Yeah it's a scam and I thought as much but that's not always the case...

    Don't you think that in this country we are expected to pay a bit "extra" for the "nice shit"
