    I think the fake Petzl is the bottom one.
    I've got a video of the incident somewhere. ;)

    Yeah that's pretty crazy.....

    So's the fake climbing gear, is there nothing they're not faking now? I've been bitten with some fake filters and the like but you can put up with that. Someone got busted in Manchester last year with fake camer bags.... ok fair enough... but they also had fake Nikon and Canon lenses!!

    Doubtful mate as they sell p7s in different countries with different languages and they are cheaper to buy else where in the world so people buy in bulk and import them unofficially.
    Bastard about the petzl stuff being fake wonder if you can just go to a stockist and get them to scan the barcodes that are on the new stuff as it includes production date factory etc.

    I think that's right - neither of them seems to have a face :confused

    I've read on another thread that you can upgrade them with a new bulb and batteries so perhaps that's what should be done to avoid scaring mothers with young children
