In order for an item to be determined as defective, there has to be a failure of craftsmanship or function within a specified amount of time. Some manufacturers cover their products for a year and others have a lifetime warranty. Examples of manufacture defects include delaminating, leaking or fogging, seam failure, and zipper malfunction. Normal wear and tear or abuse is not covered by manufacturer warranty.
There are manufactures that request that customers deal directly with them, such as most sunglass companies. There are also manufactures that will repair products, some that will only issue store credit, and others that will replace with new product.
