    6. Damage caused by improper mounting or adjustment of the bindings, including bindings pulling out of the ski. If your mount is done improperly or the wrong size bit is used to drill the holes – both the width and depth of the mounting holes – then the warranty is void.

  5. All coverage under this warranty is void if any modification, change or alteration has been made to the product that is not specifically authorized in writing by Armada Skis, Inc.
  6. Repaired or replaced products are covered for the remainder of the original warranty only.

THIS WARRANTY GIVES YOU SPECIFIC LEGAL RIGHTS WHICH VARY FROM STATE TO STATE.

Tips For Shipping Skis

  • Remove bindings from skis before shipping. Armada is not responsible for any bindings shipped to our warranty department.
  • Use a box for shipping skis. Plastic wrap will not protect the ski in transit.
  • Do not use a “permanent” marker to point out a Ski’s problem.
  • Clearly reference the Return Authorization Number on the outside of the box.
  • Include a note in the box taped to the ski – on the note include your name and all contact information including email, phone number, and return shipping address./li>

What is the warranty process?
Warranty claims are to be made through the Authorized Armada Dealer where purchased. Warranty is only valid with proof of purchase from an Authorized Armada Dealer. Hand written receipts will not be accepted. The Armada warranty program does not cover any defects due to improper fit. Alteration of Armada products will void warranty. Please ensure that your garments are washed prior to submitting for warranties. Soiled garments will be returned unprocessed or may delay the process with an additional surcharge. If you have any questions about our warranty, please feel free to email Customer Service at WarrantyInfo@armadaskis.com for further assistance.

What does “lifetime” mean?
Our products are covered under warranty for the lifetime of the product. Unfortunately, this does not mean your lifetime. Your Armada jacket may not survive until the apocalypse, but we have designed and engineered these products to give you many seasons of exceptional use.

Will Armada repair or replace the garment?
Our first option is always to repair the garment. If it is not repairable, we will gladly replace it. Please understand we may be out of stock or no longer carry that particular product style or color, and will do everything possible to replace the garment with the closest possible style.

Are rips and tears covered under the warranty?
No, rips and tears in the fabric are not covered under warranty. Even though our products are manufactured to the highest possible standards, and are well taken care of by the owner; normal wear and tear as well as unforeseen accidents are unavoidable.

What is not covered?
Armada’s warranty does not cover garments damaged due to an accident, improper care, negligence or normal wear and tear. (Example – if the seam on the cuff of your pants comes undone, and there is evidence of damage, i.e. walking through a parking lot with your boots on and stepping on the bottom of the pant, the seam damage will be unwarrantable because of the neglect.)

Who pays for shipping?
The customer pays the shipping charges to send products to the Warranty Department. Armada will absorb the return shipping charges to return the product to the customer, only on warrantable garments. If you request that we return your product by UPS Overnight or 2nd Day Air, the additional shipping charges will be billed to you. If product is received without return authorization or if product is deemed un-warrantable, cost of shipping to return product to customer will be the responsibility of the customer. Shipping charges for all non-warranty repairs are at the owner’s expense.

How long will my repair take?
Our typical turn-around time is three to four weeks from the time we receive your product until it is returned to you. In some cases we can get it back to you sooner. In rare cases, it may take longer. During peak season our turnaround time can stretch to six weeks. If your product needs to be sent out to be cleaned, you may expect up to two additional weeks before it will be returned to you.

Why does my product need to be cleaned before I send it in?
California State law requires that all items accepted for repair be received freshly laundered. We understand that this may be inconvenient, but we want to ensure the health and welfare of our Warranty Department staff.
