    Counterfeit helmets on ebay

    I ran across this interesting article about counterfeit helmets. A good reminder why not to by important safety gear on eBay and I would also even say small unknown vendors on amazon.

    A lot of big name retailers sell on both amazon and ebay. There is nothing fundamentally unsafe about buying anything on ebay.

    Actually, especially now, ebay is trying to compete with amazon and their fee structure is dramatically lower. Often, you can buy the exact same thing from the exact same company, but for less money on ebay than amazon. They're pushing pretty hard and often throw around coupons and promotions making stuff even cheaper.

    Not trying to ignore the huge amount of fakes and counterfeits on ebay, but with a little due diligence, you're good. Just buy from known retailers, even if its on ebay.
