Like many world-leading brands, Canada Goose's success has led to their products being copied by counterfeiters. Unfortunately, it's all too frequent that consumers ask if a counterfeit website is real, or a story is reported about someone who accidentally purchased a counterfeit Canada Goose parka online.
Authentic Canada Goose parkas have a hologram tag the company implemented a couple of years ago. Counterfeiters can make tags that make a counterfeit parka look almost identical to the authentic parka, but it's the hologram that will help you identify that you have an authentic Canada Goose Down Parka. If your parka doesn't have this hologram then you have a counterfeit. Protect yourself and those you care about by buying authentic Canada Goose products from an authorized Canada Goose retailer.
