How did I land on the topic of 32 brands with lifetime warranties? Well, I’ve been writing for a long time about the long-term value of guarantees.
I believe that when you spend your hard-earned money on something it should last. And if it doesn’t last, then the company should stand behind the product and fix or replace it for free–or for a nominal fee.

In that time of covering products guaranteed for life, I’ve come across way more than 32 brands with lifetime warranties. In fact, I’ve probably been able to dig up 50 or more brand with lifetime warranties.
But with so many people doing their shopping right now on Amazon, I thought it was a good time to focus on brands with lifetime warranties on Amazon.
One, you can enjoy the convenience of shopping on Amazon.
And two, you can enjoy the peace of mind knowing that the company making the item you’ve bought will stand behind it.
Finally, here are some suggestions on what to buy on Amazon during Amazon Prime Day.
List of 32 brands with lifetime warranties on Amazon
So to start here is my alphabetical list of the 32 brands with lifetime warranties on Amazon. This is just a start.
There may be more than these brands on Amazon that offer products guaranteed for life. But this is a good place to start.
Finally, keep in mind that with guarantees and warranties, these are design to cover design failures and the like. These do not cover normal wear and tear from daily or regular use. Also, they’re meant to cover normal, non-commercial use. In addition, if you’ve made any modifications to products, such as adding a monogram to clothing, that likely will void whatever guarantee or warranty the brands offers. So keep that in mind before submitting any warranty claims with the brands listed here or just in general.

More about the 32 brands with lifetime warranties on Amazon
Now that I’ve listed the brands with lifetime warranties on Amazon, I’m going to get into more details about each of the companies that I’ve found.
I’ll tell you what I can about their lifetime guarantee, such as is it a balls-to-the-walls lifetime warranty or a limited lifetime warranty.
After that, I’ll showcase a few products from each company.
Now, here are the 32 brands. They are listed below in alphabetical order.
If you’re not familiar with Arc’teryx, the company specializes in technical high-performance apparel, outerwear and equipment, including backpacks and daypacks.
Here is the lifetime warranty for Arc’teryx:
“Arc’teryx is proud of the quality and performance of all our products. Items covered under our Limited Warranty will be replaced or repaired at the discretion of Arc’teryx for the practical product lifespan. Product damaged through wear and tear, misuse, or neglect may be repaired at a reasonable price.”
Briggs & Riley
As far as the Briggs & Riley lifetime guarantee, the company includes it in its tagline: “Engineered for reality. Guaranteed for life.”
In fact, our family has been using Camelbak water bottles for years. Also, Camelbak makes hydration packs and vests.
The company’s lifetime guarantee is called the “Got Your Bak Lifetime Guarantee.” That is, Camelbak says it “will repair or replace at its discretion any manufacturing defect in these products free of charge.”
The company doesn’t just sell work clothes, such as coats and vests. There are Carhartt jeans, Carhartt boots, Carhartt hats and more.
Also, Carhartt makes clothing and gear for all ages. And, the Carhartt warranty covers it all.
Here’s what you have to know about Columbia Sportswear and the Columbia lifetime guarantee.
It is technically a limited lifetime guarantee “that covers defects in materials and workmanship for the practical lifetime of Columbia Sportswear brand products manufactured by Columbia Sportswear.”
So, a warranty that means they stand behind their products. However, Columbia may not cover a legit lifetime. Good to know.
It calls its lifetime warranty “The Forever Guarantee.” Here is how Cutco describes that guarantee:
“If at any time you are not satisfied with the performance of your Cutco product we’ll make it right. Whether you made the initial purchase or you received Cutco as a gift, it’s our guarantee that your Cutco products will perform like new. Forever.”
The knife set below is the one we have and have used for years. What’s great about the case is that when you store the knives in the slots, they’re automatically sharpened.
In addition to backpacks, Dakine makes all kinds of bags along with tablet protective covers and luggage guaranteed for life. Dakine also makes lunchboxes and coolers.
On the one hand, the company offers a limited lifetime warranty. On the other hand, this lifetime guarantee is against manufacturing defects within the normal scope of use–that’s it.
Darn Tough Socks
When it comes to the Darn Tough Socks warranty, they’ll only honor their stance of “Unconditionally guaranteed for life” if you buy from one of their verified retailers.
Lucky for you, Amazon is one such verified retailer.
Its lifetime guarantee is quite generous. Here is how the brand explains it.
“All Davek umbrellas are covered under our famous Unconditional Lifetime Guarantee: If your umbrella should fail to function properly at any time for any reason whatsoever, we will gladly repair or replace it for free (except shipping). Forever. We want this to be the last umbrella you will ever need.”
Yes, the umbrellas are a bit pricey. However, if it’s the last umbrella you ever have to buy, that will be money well spent.
The brand serves many different markets. Those working in agriculture or construction may wear Dickies. In addition, Dickies brand makes school uniforms.
The company also supplies chef whites and other kitchen-related clothing, and scrubs for those working in the healthcare industry.
Finally, Dickies makes everyday, regular clothing, too. I can remember wearing Dickies cargo pants back in the day.
Also, some Dickies clothing qualifies from Amazon Prime Try Before Your Buy.
Here is the Dickies lifetime guarantee:
“Since 1922, Dickies quality has been built into every product. We will gladly replace a Dickies® garment or refund your money if you are not satisfied for any reason. Please feel free to call our special customer service line with any comments at 1-800-DICKIES.”
Feetures is the 12th brand of 32 brands with lifetime warranties on Amazon, and another brand of socks with a lifetime warranty.
Those in the sports and fitness arena swear by Feetures socks.
The Zwilling Company owns Henckels, which makes high quality cutlery sets and kitchen accessories.
“All of our products are fully guaranteed against defects in materials and / or craftsmanship,” says the Henckels lifetime guarantee.
It is one of the first companies I learned about with a lifetime guarantee. As a parent with children who took Jansport backpacks to school, even on to college, I loved knowing that the company would stand behind its products–and continues to do so today. Here is my overall review of the Jansport warranty.
This is toolmaker Kobalt’s guarantee:
“You should never have a problem with your Kobalt tool. However, if you do, return the item to the place of purchase for a free replacement. No questions asked.”
This maker of high-end cookware (pots, pans, a best-selling Dutch oven and more) and other kitchen products stands behind its products. Technically, Le Creuset offers a limited lifetime guarantee for 10 years. Even so, that’s pretty generous.
Manduka is the 18th brand of 32 brands with lifetime warranties on Amazon and is a maker of high-end yoga mats.
The Manduka warranty applies to only certain lines of the yoga mats it manufacturers and sells. There are three lines that qualify. They are:
- Manduka PRO
- PRO Travel
Here is my review of Manduka PRO yoga mats.
The company makes rain jackets, sleeping bags and other outdoor gear. The Marmot guarantee says, “We warrant every product we make to be free of manufacturer defects.”
The North Face
Does North Face have a lifetime warranty? Yes, it does.
Here is what that guarantee says.
“The North Face® branded products covered by this warranty are warranted to the original owner against manufacturing defects in materials and workmanship for the lifetime of the product.”
The only exception to this lifetime guarantee is with footwear and products that are identified as “The North Face Renewed.” These have a one-year warranty only.
The company calls its warranty the “Great Catch Guarantee.” It pretty much stands behind everything it sells.
You can find a variety of Orvis fishing reels on Amazon as well as other outdoor gear and accessories as well as Orvis dog products.
How’s this for a straightforward lifetime guarantee? Osprey calls it the All Mighty Guarantee.
“Osprey will repair any damage or defect for any reason free of charge–whether it was purchased in 1974 or yesterday.”
It is because of the Otterbox guarantee that I’ve been able to get two new Otterbox cases for free. This is over a decade.
In fact, I will never NOT buy an Otterbox when I get a new phone. I trust the brand to protect them, full stop. Here is what you need to know about the Otterbox warranty.
When it comes to the Rainbow Sandals lifetime guarantee, it applies to the sole of the shoes only. Still, it says this:
“If your sandals are covered under our warranty and we are unable to repair them, we will issue a new pair.”
They are known for their RFID-blocking wallets, and Ridge stands behind every product it makes. Here is a link to the Ridge Wallet warranty info.
Stanley Tools are next on the list of brands on Amazon with a lifetime warranty. However, there is an important distinction I need to make with Stanley Tools.
While all the hand tools (hammers, wrenches, ratchet, etc.) Stanley makes have some sort of warranty, only the Stanley Mechanics Tools have a bona fide lifetime warranty. Here is how the company describes it (all caps are their doing; I’m not shouting):
“STANLEY® Mechanics Tools are covered by the manufacturer’s FULL LIFETIME WARRANTY. If any STANLEY Mechanics Tool ever fails for any reason, STANLEY will replace it. NO PROOF OF PURCHASE required.”
Terry Cycling Shorts
In addition to that, I love that the company offers an unconditional guarantee. Here is how the company promotes that guarantee:
“Wear it. Love it or Return it. We’re proud of the products we sell and we back them unconditionally. If for any reason you’re not completely satisfied with your Terry purchase, please do not hesitate to contact us.”
With regards to the Tervis lifetime guarantee, it centers on the notion of temperature regulation. That is, if your Tervis Tumbler no longer keeps something hot or cold, Tervis will likely replace the cup. An article on the Tervis website: Tervis.com goes more into the details of the dos and don’ts of this warranty.
I had no idea that Totes Umbrellas had a guarantee until I saw it on a display in my local supermarket. It said right on the display “lifetime guarantee.”
So I had to include it in this article since you can buy Totes umbrellas and other products on Amazon.
Vermont Teddy Bear
This one really took me by surprise. Who knew that the Vermont Teddy Bear guaranteed its unique stuffed animals. Also, I had no idea that you could buy them on Amazon.
However, both are true. Therefore, I’ve included Vermont Teddy Bear in this roundup.
The company specializes in binoculars and other optics products. However, Vortex also makes men’s lifestyle attire and other kinds of gear.
It calls its guarantee the VIP warranty. In fact, you don’t have to have purchased something special to achieve VIP status.
According to Vortex, “VIP stands for a Very Important Promise to you, our customer. We will repair or replace your Vortex® product in the event it becomes damaged or defective—at no charge to you. If we cannot repair your product, we will replace it with a product in perfect working order of equal or better physical condition.”
Its products “are guaranteed to be free of defects in material and/or craftsmanship.”
I’ll admit that I was hesitant to include Zippo in this roundup. Because, to me, Zippo lighters are associated with smoking, and I’m not a big tobacco fan. However, I realized that people use lighters for lots of other reasons, too, such as lighting birthday candles, fire pits, a charcoal grill and more.
Also, these days, Zippos is more than just lighters. They make hand warmers, outdoor gear and much more. So, I got over myself and added Zippo to the list.
