    Just FYI if you are looking to make a purchase.
    If it is on the internet, it can just about be dang fake!
    Oh, while E-bay can be a good place for stuff, it is also known for fake or counterfeit products. I saw some knock offs over in China. Came with realistic looking tags too.

    Another sign are the dates. There was a product flooded with 5 star reviews all within 3 days of each other. It was done shortly before the item was scheduled for a lightning deal.

    I use fakespot which helps.

    Sawyer water filters were targeted. Be skeptical of everything, protect yourself.
