Warranty Merchandise Returns:
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 enroute. 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:
Brooks-Range Mountaineering Equipment Co.
4725 Thornton Avenue
Fremont, CA 94536-6408 USA
Shipping charges are non-refundable and the item you return should be in the condition you received it — unused with all boxes, instruction cards and documentation intact. If you have questions about our No Hassle Guarantee please feel free to email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
In order to protect our customers, returns on most climbing gear will not be accepted unless directed by a Brooks-Range employee.

Proper Care and Storage
Normal outdoor activities, climbing, ski mountaineering, skiing, backcountry travel, and rescue work are dirty. You must keep all of your equipment clean and well maintained. Treat our fabric products with the same exact care you would use with your climbing ropes. Store our products in a clean, dry environment, out of direct sunlight. Make sure to dry before storing. Keep our products away from heat sources and don’t allow them to contact corrosives such as battery acid and solvents. Never store our products in a folded or stowed position for long periods of time – this is especially important in warm, humid areas.
Wash your Brooks-Range products with warm water and mild soap such as White King Flakes® or equivalent. Do NOT use bleach. Drip dry out of direct sunlight until fully dry.
Replacement and Retirement
Retire and replace your Brooks-Range product if the fabric, buckles, straps or any part of the product is damaged, frayed, cut, torn, bent, cracked burnt, melted, faded from exposure to ultraviolet light or the bar tacks of fabric products are showing wear.
No product or piece of gear lives forever. If you can’t have your Brooks-Range product repaired, retire it. Anytime you retire a piece of gear or product, destroy it to prevent future use.
Brooks-Range Mountaineering Equipment Co. strongly discourages secondhand use. Because you should always know the history of your gear, buying used products or equipment is just plain risky. You can’t trust products, information therein, or equipment with an unknown or out-of-date past.
