I've got waterproof zips on my jacket/pack, but water is still coming through. Is this covered under warranty?

Our PU-coated zips are water-resistant as opposed to fully waterproof. Water-resistant zips keep out most of the rain while remaining easy to operate, however if exposed to prolonged rain, moisture will come through. Fully waterproof zips are seam sealed to ensure they lock out all moisture.

When you are purchasing a garment or piece of equipment, check if the product is waterproof or water-resistant and look to see whether the zips are water-resistant or waterproof.

My zip doesn't close anymore, what do I do?

One of the most common issues one can run into is a zip slider that doesn't work properly. When the zip keeps splitting after trying to close it, it's time to have a look at the zip slider. Often a quick fix will solve the problem in no time.

Use a pair of pliers to gently squeeze the opening in the slider together (where the teeth go through) and see if the zip will close correctly now. Be careful not to squeeze too hard as this will prevent the slider from moving altogether and can damage the zip. Gently apply force to both sides evenly. Try a little first and put a bit more on if the teeth still don't come together.

This should prolong the zips function. If the slider fails again, contact us to arrange a replacement.

Does your warranty cover general wear and tear?

If a product is faulty it will be covered under our normal warranty. If the product has general wear and tear or it has been broken we’ll do our best to get you sorted with a spare part or repair job, often at little to no cost. We want to make sure you’re always equipped for your next adventure.
