For USA purchasers only:
All warranties implied by State law, including the implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose, are hereby limited to the duration of this Warranty. Some States do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the foregoing limitation may not apply to you. With the exception of any warranties implied by State law (as hereby limited), this Warranty is exclusive and in lieu of all other warranties, guarantees, agreements and similar obligations of manufacturer or reseller. This Warranty gives you specific legal rights, which vary from State to State.
Definition of "Lifetime"
Everything has a finite lifetime and despite the quality materials used in their construction, wetsuits are no exception. Just like any garment, under normal use and proper care, it will wear out eventually. A visible symptom of this is cracked, dry neoprene or severely worn patches. At this point sadly, the suit's lifetime is up.
The stitching in our suits will last a lifetime but unfortunately, the surrounding material into which the stitches are placed will deteriorate with time as described above and the stitches will pull out without breakage of the thread used in the stitching. The integrity of the stitching and the NP lifetime warranty on stitching remains intact.
