The Alpenglow in-store credit will never expire and can be used towards your next purchase.

Alpenglow Understands that things break periodically.  Is it a warranty?  Ask yourself this question:  Was something done during the manufacturing process that deemed the product defective?  If the answer is yes, then the manufacturer will likely repair/replace the item assuming it’s within the warranty period.  Manufacturers aren’t capable of calling something a warranty sight-unseen. Most manufacturers will require the product back to assess the problem.  Alpenglow will work with you and the manufacturer to create a successful resolution to the warranty issue.
If the item broke from use, abuse, neglect, or stupidity, it will not be warranted.  In any event, call or email us to start the process.
