Warranty and Repair FAQs.

What is considered normal wear and tear?
We know you love your Marmot apparel and equipment, but regardless of how carefully you use and care for your gear it may eventually begin to experience natural breakdown of materials and show wear over time. Fabric wearing thin, showing abrasions, stains, discolouration, rips or tears, loss of DWR (Durable Water Resistance) and laminates losing their ability to keep out moisture can be considered wear and tear.

Where do I send my gear back for repair and who covers shipping?
Before sending your gear to our Warranty team, you must submit a claim for warranty or repair (see below policy). If we require you to return the item, you will be responsible to cover shipping on the way in, and we will cover the return shipping on warranties only. All repairs are covered by the user including returned freight if that repair fails to fall under warranty cover.

What if I know my item isn’t covered under Warranty and I want a repair?
Should you have an issue not covered under warranty, please see our recommended repairers at the base of this page.

When will I get my Gear Back?
We process all items upon receipt to ensure the fastest turnaround possible. Our typical turnaround time is 2-4 weeks from the time we receive your product. And may differ depending on state of placement or repair until its returned to you. In rare cases, it may take longer. 

How do I wash my garment before sending it in?
Laundering instructions are on the inside left hip of each garment, on the black tag. Those tags will specify the instructions for your particular garment.


I purchased my product used – is it still covered under Warranty?

If a product is purchased second hand it no longer holds the original Warranty. 


Where can I purchase replacement tent parts?
You can purchase tent parts from any outdoor tent specialist.
