Some Petzl equipment is not as it seems....

Chinese counterfeits with defects are appearing on the market. Be warned....

http://www.petzl.com/us/pro/news/2011/02/12/warning-regarding-presence-counterfeit-versions-petzl-products

My advice - Use reputable suppliers and avoid second-hand purchases of this equipment.

Wow, thats not bad. These bad boys go to 60% of the rated strength of the original and probably cost a fraction. Im gonna buy some to go with my iPed and exploding phone.

I consider that an insult to the Hiphone which has a fairly good rep.

The exploding phone cases were all actually original iphones not fakes ...

Found another manufacturer making gear, some of which looks remarkably like Petzl stuff (amongst other brands). Amusing that apart from climbing gear they make dog leads! Not sure why other companies haven't made that obvious step.

Bollocks.

Metolius have been making quality dog leashes for ages. Others also do.
