Gear Up Risk-Free

We stand behind everything we make. We promise to make our products with incredible attention to comfort, fit, and durability—because we want you to love our gear as much as we do.

And we want it to be able to support all of your adventures, from exploring new cities to summiting new mountains. So if, for any reason, you aren’t completely happy with your Smartwool® gear within two years of purchasing, we’ll get you into some new gear. No problem.

Our guarantee process is evolving. To help simplify and speed up our process, we are changing a couple of things:

1. With a focus on improving customer experience & further our sustainability efforts, returning your product will no longer be required* (for US purchases only).
*We reserve the right to request customers to physically return the product and/or provide proof of purchase.

2. If your claim is approved, we will issue digital gift cards as reimbursement. This will help get you into a new product for your next adventure as fast as possible.

To process your claim, just fill out the Smartwool Claim Submission Form, upload the requested images, and hit send. Then, we’ll contact you with next steps. We want you to get back to running, skiing, and playing in the outdoors as soon as possible.
