All Garments are supplied with a 6 month Samurai Guarantee, Samurai’s Super 6 garment are supplied with an extended 12 month guarantee.

This means that you can trust a Samurai product to perform whenever you need it to. On the rare occasion that one of our garments has a problem, we want to know about it. 

What is Samurai’s Limited Warranty policy?

As standard Samurai’s Garments have a 6 month limited product warranty against any manufacturing defects in the materials and the workmanship when in production, Samurai’s Super 6 garments are supplied with an extended 12 month guarantee.

If a product fails whilst under this warranty due to a manufacturing defect we will repair the product, without charge, or will replace your garment, at our discretion. We will only cover garments that are unaltered and unmodified under our policy.

Samurai’s warranty does not cover any damage caused by normal wear and tear, improper care, negligence and the natural breakdown of colours and materials over an extended time and the use of the product. If garments have been damaged and are not covered under this warranty they may be repaired for a cost and shipping will also be charged accordingly.

Samurai are not liable for any garment lost on return to the company. In order for us to provide repairs and carry out an evaluation all garments must be sent in a clean manner, if deemed in an unsuitable state these garments may be returned or charges for cleaning may be applied.

 What does Samurai’s Limited Warranty mean?

Here at Samurai we put all our products through rigorous testing, ensuring that the garments we produce go above and beyond expectations. Due to the standard of testing carried out on your garment, it should be free of manufacturer defects for the first 6 months of practical use, and for our best selling Samurai Super 6 garments we have extended this to 12 months.

The practical duration of the product is determined by the amount and type of use of the garment and includes the care of the garment.

 What is covered under the warranty?

Because we trust our garments we cover any manufacturing defects and any workmanship mistakes that may have occurred, we cover the garments regardless of the age of the product but we don’t cover any normal wear and tear.

Here at Samurai we define wear and tear as damage that is natural and occurs inevitably as a result of everyday use of that garment. Examples of this may include colour fading, piling and tears at seams and pockets from incorrect usage. Wear and tear also covers the general breakdown of the materials over the years.

Will my Garment be repaired or replaced once returned to Samurai?

Once your garment is received, we will assess the problem. If your product is still under warranty and has become damaged due to a manufacturing fault in the materials or by the workmanship the first option will be to repair the item free of charge. However if your garment is unrepairable or the cost of the repair exceeds a new one we will in this case replace it. The quantity of garments will also have an influence on this and again dependant on the circumstances this will be free of charge.

How long will the repair or replacement process take?

We try and minimise the turnaround of faulty garments as we know that they may be needed urgently. If the garment simply needs to be repaired the turnaround is typically two weeks. However if the garment needed to be replaced, we typically estimate between 4-6weeks. In some cases we can get it back to you sooner. In some cases, it may take longer. Please be aware during peak season our turnaround time can be longer than six weeks.

What do repairs cost?

If your garments are not covered under the warranty, the costs of the repair can vary from one to another. This may depend on having to source materials to the length of the repairs. Once we have evaluated the repairs required to the garment we will contact you stating the final costs and obtain approval prior to repair. We may offer to replace your garment at a cost if not covered by warranty.
