    • If the damage falls under our warranty and we are unable to repair the damage to a suitable standard, we will replace it with a new product. In this case we will not send you the damaged product back. If you would prefer to receive your product back rather than receive a replacement, please let our customer service team know.
  • When I use my waterproof product, the fabric is wetting out. Is this covered by the warranty
    It is the responsibility of the consumer to ensure the Durable Water Repellent (DWR) is maintained and reapplied as needed to ensure its ongoing effectiveness. See the detailed case instructions on our website for guidance on how to care for waterproof products. Water which is no longer beading up on an old or heavily worn garment, even after application of a new DWR treatment, is an indication that the garment has reached the end of its useful life.

  • What is the typical lifetime of a product
    • The typical lifetime is the time that can be typically expected for a product to retain its performance relative to the type of product and the amount of use. For example, a pair of trail running shoes are not expected to last as long as a mountaineering jacket, or a ski jacket used by a ski guide every day is not expected to last as long as a jacket used by a causal skier once a year. It does in other words not mean for your lifetime or an indefinite period of time. • Our Customer Service team will determine on a case by case basis the typical lifetime of the product taking into account a number of factors include type, age and frequency of use. • It is expected that care instructions are carefully followed for the different products types to get the most out of the product. If your product appears worn out, then it could be time to replace your product .
