Sea to Summit designs and builds gear that is meant to be put to the test, wherever your adventures take you. We guarantee our products against defects in materials or workmanship for the lifetime of the product.
The Sea to Summit Guarantee is our promise to guarantee our products against manufacturing defects in materials or workmanship for the lifetime of the product. We choose the highest quality materials, build to the most exacting manufacturing standards, and rigorously test our products so we can deliver on this promise.
We offer this lifetime warranty to the original owner, with proof of purchase from an authorised Sea to Summit retailer, for the intended life of the product under normal use. The only exception to the Sea to Summit Guarantee is for products which are intended for use in situations which result in higher rates of wear and tear, which is why they have a limited warranty duration. In these cases, the duration of the warranty is clearly marked on the packaging and on our website.
If you encounter a manufacturing defect in materials or workmanship with any product purchased through our website then subject to an assessment by us, you may be entitled to a repair, replacement product, exchange or refund of the purchase price.
You can also return an item purchased on this website for assessment if you believe it is defective, faulty or not fit for the purpose advertised.
WHAT IS NOT COVERED BY THE SEA TO SUMMIT GUARANTEE?
The Sea to Summit Lifetime Guarantee does not cover damage caused by normal wear and tear, misuse, excessive use, accidental damage, alteration or modifications to the Product, combat damage, improper care or cleaning, neglect, non-standard usage, or negligence.
In addition, our warranty does not cover damage to personal items stored in or used in conjunction with our products. Warranty decisions are the discretion of the Warranty and Returns Department.
Except in jurisdictions where the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damage is not allowed, then Sea to Summit will not, under any circumstances, be liable for any direct, indirect, special or consequential damages resulting from a warranty claim, and in no event will Sea to Summit’s aggregate liability exceed the price paid for the product.
You are entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure. You are also entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure.
If you have a Product with a major problem (for example, it is unsafe, is significantly different from the sample or description), then you are entitled to a refund or replacement if the problem is a major problem. If it is a minor problem, then we can offer you a free repair within a reasonable time.
Where an item is damaged through misuse, neglect or abnormal use, we will not provide a refund, exchange or repair.
