Arctica warranty policy
Arctica offers a limited lifetime warranty against defects in materials and workmanship applicable on select products. Arctica warranties outerwear only, including outerwear jackets, pants and gloves. Due to the nature of the product, speed suits do not carry a warranty.
Arctica’s warranty is only valid on items purchased from Arctica.com or through an Authorized Arctica Dealer to the original purchaser, and the purchaser must provide an original receipt for purchase.
Define “Limited Lifetime Warranty”
- Limited Lifetime Warranty covers a purchase made by the original customer.
- Limited Lifetime Warranty means that the garment will be free of manufacturer defects for a practical life span of the product – it does not mean the garment will last your lifetime.
- Lifetime of a product is determined by the amount and type of use plus care of the garment.
- All garments eventually show signs of wear, and wear-and-tear is not covered under Arctica’s Limited Lifetime Warranty.
