Lowepro Flipside 500AW - Too good to be true??
Posted By: Pauld, 10-01-2013, 08:23 AM

I recently found this on Ebay and have a hard time believing this is an actual "Lowepro" bag and not a Chinese knock-off. The bag is only $34US+shipping but here in Canada this bag retails for $250. Curious as to what everyone thinks.

Maybe pirated?
(Could very well be the same factory that produce the real stuff) Remember the Crumpler bag?

The seller has a good feedback score... although if you look at what types of items are sold, there's an odd mix.

Adorama and B&H lists it for $151.78 w/FS so $33.99 + $42.09 shipping (USD) from China looks about right.

Still seems a bit low for an authentic Lowepro bag. I'm guessing it's a knock-off bag at that price. It's so tempting not to pull the trigger at that price.
