PSA - Vikingbags.com

We recently discovered that people from Vikingbags.com have created multiple accounts on this forum posing as normal members. Eventually they get around to making a few negative comments about their competitors, and saying that they had a positive experience from vikingbags.com in an attempt to generate more business for them.


Buyer beware for anyone considering buying from a company that would employ such slimeball sales tactics such as this.

A quick Google search on this "company" turned up these results.

Viking bags

Viking Bags Business Review in San Gabriel, CA



Apparently the products they sell are from http://www.mutazu.com/index.html with a jacked up price.

They are now certainly on my list of companies not to do business with.

Interesting. I asked about Vikingbags a couple of weeks ago and really got no warm fuzzy feeling from the responses. The "plants" must not be doing a good job! I've already lost interest in these anyway.

thought something smeeled fishy on the saddlebag thread a few days ago. Great job sniffing them out.

As I type this reply there is an ad for VIKING BAGS GEAR ON SALE at the top of the page. I don't know how to bring this to the attention of site administrators but I hope someone else will. I wouldn't think this site would want to run their ads.

Thanks, Louisville Joe

Yeah, they had an ad for N0bama too right before the elections....

Unfortunately we (the mods) have no say in what ads are placed on the site.
