The North Face Denali Jacket is one of the most well-made and top-selling jackets worldwide. Unfortunately, because North Face makes such a dependable and well-known product, there are many copycats out there that will try to pass off a knock-off as the real thing—and take your hard-earned cash in the process. There are, however, a few things you can do to safeguard yourself against purchasing a fake North Face Denali.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Check out the seller to make sure it's reliable. If you are using a site like eBay for instance, make sure the seller has a high seller satisfaction rating. If you are using some other source, a simple online search can provide you with information about the seller.

  2. 2

    Contact the seller of the North Face Denali jacket and ask if the jacket is authentic. Beware of those sellers who do not get back to you. Those who try to pass off fake North Face jackets prefer not to answer questions of authenticity.

  3. 3

    Check the tag. An authentic North Face should have two or three tags in the back. If there just one tag (usually a red North Face logo), then it's probably a fake.

  4. 4

    Compare the tag or tags on the back of your jacket to the style that you ordered. Make certain that one of the tags says “Denali.” Many times fake North Face jackets have stolen tags on them and they often don’t match the jacket model that they are attached to.

  5. 5

    Inspect the quality of your jacket. The threading and stitching should have a perfect zigzag style. Also, if your jacket has smooth or shiny fabric, it may be a fake. Authentic Denali jackets have slightly fuzzy fleece fabric.
