Default Fake/Knockoff Jackets?

This might be a stupid question, but recently I ordered a DC 2015 jacket off amazon (DC Torstein 15) and as its shipping I am starting to realize it might be fake.

http://www.amazon.com/DC-Torstein-Ja...ds=Torstein+15

The colour in the picture is off... okay, its just the colour correction

The jacket isn't released on the DC website, yet its 10% off already.... okay, good price?

The description says 100% Polyester when the jacket is 50% Polyester and Nylon.... hmmm


I know this may be me just being stupid, but has anyone ever been sold a fake item on Amazon?
Do you think this is Fake?
Please help me out, thanks.

If torstein hasn't worn it in a video this year its probably not authentic. Usually he rides and wears his pro models the year before. take a look at the bumble bee jacket that he made for this 13 14 season. he wears it in most of his edits from the 12 13 season. Dont rely solely on my post it could be a real DC jacket but my instinct is saying its fake

Amazon.com: DC Men's Torstein 15 Snow Jacket: Clothing

I know this may be me just being stupid, but has anyone ever been sold a fake item on Ebay?
