Reeboknhl.com jerseys

Not sure if this is the right section, but has anyone ever bought anything from here? I know they're knockoffs, but the quality looks pretty decent... anyone have any thoughts/experience?

Most fake jerseys are made in the same place, or so you would imagine. It's pot luck really

I bought one from another site just to train in & although it looks OK, the colours aren't quite right & the stitching started to frey after a few washes

Which one are you looking at?

Canadiens Cammalleri


Looks actually pretty decent, probably unnoticeable differences.

I've read the Habs are really against the wearing of fake jerseys at their games, may be something to keep in mind.

I'm sure all the teams are against fake jerseys. They don't make any money off of them.

Be that as it may, it would be bad business to prevent people who have paid for their tickets from entering the arena because they are wearing a "fake jersey".

Somehow I also don't think the Canadiens are hiring "jersey police" at their arena, either.

They may be "against" it, but what are they going to do about it?

As the next poster states, I'm sure all teams are against it (as they don't make money off of them), but they also have to realize that people on limited budgets can't necessarily spend $400 on a "real" jersey.

To the original poster: If you like the Canadiens Cammalleri jersey, I say go for it. And wear it proudly to the games.

Personally, most of them look absolutely terrible, and you look like an idiot for wearing such a terrible knockoff. Seriously, save an extra $100 and at least get a replica, so you don't look like a moron. Wait for a birthday or something if you have to, or at least buy some other kind of team merchandise.

You can buy one of these every year, since they fall apart after a few washes, or you can buy a replica that will last you for a LONG time. Think about it.

P.S. You are also, undoubtedly, contributing to a sweat shop in China with this purchase....

You don't have to spend $400 on an authentic jersey. I work in licensed retail, and authentic jerseys are not even 1% of our business. Replica jerseys are where the business is at. They are $130 blank and roughly $200 with a name and number.

The Canadiens were offering $50 rebates on replicas and $100 rebates on authentics for trading in a fake jersey. However, the deal ended on April 30.

I also understand that even a replica jersey is not in everybody's price range. That's why we offer t-shirts, hoodies, and other apparel. Think about where your money could be going if you buy from illegal counterfeiters.
