Is AliExpress Safe and Legit?

The short answer is YES. AliExpress is not a scam website and it is safe to buy from AliExpress. In fact, AliExpress is a platform for manufactures to list their goods for sale similar to Amazon or eBay. In case you are a beginner and new to AliExpress we suggest getting to know the AliExpress Buyer Protection. We shop most of our bikepacking gear from AliExpress. Using the site is no more dangerous than buying something off Amazon or eBay. If you need more details on how to shop smart on AliExpress read here.
