Hi guys

I have a question you might be able to help me with. I am being offered a TAD gear predator hardshell but I am not sure it's real TAD gear, here are some pictures. Can you guys tell me if it's a real or fake one?

This picture got me thinking, the stitching looks different and one of the black labels seems te be missing?

Hope you guys can help me out, the price is around 150 USD so hate to get a reproduction one for that money.

TAD gear never came with Velcro on the shoulders. Also, where is the flap to roll the hood into, another TAD hallmark.

It should be an older model. Used back in 2008/2009 so it could be a 2007 model.

Have you do water proof test with it? As I know most replica TAD hoodie have leaking problem under heavy rain.

If it is used old gen product, the water resistance could be low.
