    What does “lifetime” mean?

    What doesn’t the lifetime guarantee cover?

    Our guarantee covers the failure of materials or workmanship, including defects, discovered through normal wear. Excessive wear and tear, animal damage, abuse, misuse or neglect is not covered by our warranty. We also can't guarantee against accidents or damage incurred as a result of repairs, modifications or alterations done by a third party.

    What is considered “general wear”?

    General wear is the natural breakdown of materials over a long period of normal usage. After years of wear, you may see a bit of fraying at the cuff. Eventually, the notch you always use on your belt may stretch. Once you've put enough miles on it, that luggage may show some scuffs on the corners that see a lot of traffic. This isn't a failure of materials or workmanship; it is simply the natural course of any well-built product. If a Filson item has served you well but is showing a lifetime of normal use, we hope you'll consider buying a replacement to last another lifetime.
