What is a lifetime, anyway?

When a brand says its product is protected by a lifetime warranty, it's not really talking about your lifetime. Sorry. Rather, they mean the lifetime of the product (whatever that might be). Normal wear and tear? Generally not covered. But if your Canada Goose jacket falls apart, or in the case of Bogs footwear, your boots just don't feel good anymore, the odds are great that if you send it in or take it back to the shop they'll take good care of you.

For some, it's a marketing strategy but for others, such as L.L. Bean, it's "the very foundation of this brand.”

Here is a list of brands that offer either a no-strings-attached lifetime warranty, or one of those more mysterious "Limited Lifetime" deals.

Any way you spin it, this is the gear that will stick with you for a long, long time.

  • Warranty: "The North Face® lifetime warranty covers manufacturing defects in materials and workmanship, regardless of the age of the product, but it does not cover normal wear and tear. Wear and tear is damage that naturally and inevitably occurs as a result of normal use. Regardless of how carefully you use, or how well you care for your The North Face® product, it will eventually begin to show age and wear. Common examples of wear and tear that would not be covered under the lifetime warranty include colors fading, abrasions on the bottom of packs or at the cuffs/pockets from rubbing when you walk and general breakdown of the materials over the years."
  • Warranty: "We guarantee every item made by Filson. No more, no less. We believe in our products and stand by the quality of workmanship, craftsmanship and materials in each one. We guarantee the lifetime of each item against failure or damage in its intended usage. Our guarantee covers: Every item for the lifetime of the product; failure of workmanship and craftsmanship; failure of materials; and production defects."
  • Warranty: "With a little help from you, these boots and shoes will give you years of wear. Even so, they will eventually wear out. When they do, we will repair or replace them. We will go on repairing or replacing them for the rest of your life -- guaranteed. For Dr. Martens, delivering value for money does not mean making things cheaper. It means giving you a product that will last."
  • Warranty: "If for some reason you are unsatisfied with the comfort, fit or durability of our socks you can return them for a replacement pair or a full refund of the purchase price."
  • Warranty: "We stand behind our products. If a product fails because of a defect in materials or the quality of workmanship, we will repair or replace it free of charge."
  • Warranty: "Your satisfaction is 100% guaranteed to ensure that every pair of Bogs you purchase meets the high standards that you expect. If they do not, just return them for a replacement or a refund. We stand behind every pair of Bogs that walk out the door. Guaranteed."
  • Warranty: "You'd expect the best boots to come with the best guarantee. That's why if you upgrade to the Lifetime Guarantee, your Blundstone boots are covered for any defect in workmanship or materials for life. Not 5 years or 10 years. For life."
  • Warranty: "JanSport engineers quality, durability, and reliable products. So, if your pack ever breaks down, simply return it to our warranty center. We'll fix it or if we can't, we'll replace it or refund it. We stand by our packs for a lifetime and since we've been making packs since 1967, that's a guarantee you can stand by."
  • Warranty: "Every Item we sell will give you complete satisfaction or you may return it for a full refund."
  • Warranty: "If you are not satisfied with one of our products at the time you receive it, or if one of our products does not perform to your satisfaction, you may return it to us for a repair, replacement or refund. Damage due to wear and tear will be repaired at a reasonable charge."
  • Warranty: "Every Canada Goose product purchased from an Authorized Retailer is fully warranted against defects in materials and workmanship for the lifetime of the product – which means the usual and customary wearable life of the product, by the original owner. If a product fails due to a manufacturing defect, we will repair the product free of charge, or replace it at our discretion."
  • Warranty: "Our products are guaranteed to give 100% satisfaction in every way. Return anything purchased from us at any time if it proves otherwise. We do not want you to have anything from L.L.Bean that is not completely satisfactory."
