As our customer, you are our #1 priority. We want you to count on us for friendly, knowledgeable customer service and fast shipping. Your complete satisfaction is important to us. Without it, we couldn't stay in business. If something isn't right, simply return it and we'll do our best to make it right.
If you need to return items for exchange or refund, please include our Return and Exchange Form. If you need a repair or have a warranty issue please download and include our Warranty Repair Form.
Providing you with quality products is our core purpose, and we guarantee everything we make. If you are not satisfied with one of our products when you receive it, or if one of our products does not perform to your satisfaction when used with reasonable care under normal circumstances, please return it to us for repair, replacement or a full refund, except for shipping and handling.
If your product is damaged due to extraordinary wear and tear, we’re also happy to repair it for a reasonable charge. We reserve the right to inspect your product before replacing it or refunding your money.
Please clean your product before returning it to us, as California law requires that products be clean before they are accepted for review and repair.
Of course, even Brooks-Range products don’t last forever. Normal outdoor activities — such as climbing, ski mountaineering, skiing, backcountry travel, and rescue work — expose our products to abrasion, fatigue, sunlight and overloading. Severe falls, stresses, overloading, exposure to excessive temperatures and sunlight, chemicals or improper use will also shorten the life span of our products. These scenarios, while unusual, highlight the importance of checking and protecting your equipment. Normal wear and tear, modifications, alterations, negligence, damage, and use for a purpose other than stated are not covered by our No Hassle Guarantee.
Our No Hassle Guarantee is for one year from purchase date and only to the original retail buyer (Buyer) of our products (Products). If a Buyer is not satisfied with one of our products, the buyer should deliver the Product to us at the address provided below. We will repair, replace or refund the cost of such Product free of charge, except for shipping and handling. That is the extent of our liability under our No Hassle Guarantee and upon the expiration of the applicable No Hassle Guarantee period, all such liability shall terminate.
No Hassle Guarantee Exclusions
Our No Hassle Guarantee does not apply in the case of normal wear and tear, modifications, alterations, negligence, damage, improper use, improper maintenance, accident, misuse, and use for a purpose other than stated. Our No Hassle Guarantee gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which may vary from state to state. Except as expressly stated in our No Hassle Guarantee, we shall not be liable for direct, indirect, incidental or other types of damage arising out of, or resulting from, the use of the Product. Our No Hassle Guarantee is in lieu of all other warranties and guarantees, expressed or implied, including, but not limited to, implied warranties and guarantees of merchantability of fitness for a particular purpose (some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages or allow limitations on the duration of an implied warranty, so the above exclusions may not apply to you.)
For sale and closeout purchases, all sales are final. We do not honor our return policy on sale and closeout purchases. For free shipping purchases, we honor our return policy, except for shipping and handling. Although all sale and closeout purchases are final, if you ever have any questions or dissatisfaction with any purchase, please contact us and we will do everything possible to make it right. Our number one goal is to guarantee complete satisfaction.
You don't even have to call us if you have a problem with the merchandise you've received. If you are not completely satisfied with any item purchased from us, simply return said item in original condition for a replacement, exchange, or full refund.
To return products, secure a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) Number and fill out a Return and Exchange Form. Send the completed form with the product in the original packaging, then place this package in a second box to protect against damage. Make sure to include your name, address, email and daytime phone so that your return can be processed. Please insure your package in case it is lost or damaged. You may also wish to send it via a delivery service that can track its return. To assure speedy handling, please ship it directly to:
