What this Limited Warranty Covers

This 3-year Limited Warranty is provided to you by Cascade Designs, Inc., a company doing business as Mountain Safety Research (“MSR”).

So long as you are the original purchaser, and you use your MSR product for the use it was intended (for example, using snowshoes as snow flotation devices, and not as water skis; stoves for boiling water outside, and not for roasting marshmallows), and you treat your products with care and maintain them properly, we warrant your product to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for three years.


What this Limited Warranty does not Cover

This warranty does not cover wear and tear to your product. Common examples of wear and tear include: faded colors, abrasions, scuffing/scratches, degradation of materials caused by UV exposure or use, and corrosion, etc. Additionally, this warranty does not cover products that have been altered in any way, improperly maintained, or misused, abused, or neglected.


How MSR will Address Warranty Issues

For three years following your purchase of an MSR product from an authorized MSR retailer, original product parts we determine are defective in materials or workmanship (so long as the defect was not caused by damage while in your possession, or unreasonable use, or failure to provide reasonable and necessary maintenance), we will repair or replace at our expense. In instances where your warranty-eligible MSR product requires service, but we no longer manufacture the product, or feel that it cannot be repaired, we may offer to replace your product with one of comparable value and function.

You are responsible for all costs associated with returning your product to us; however, if we determine that the problem you’re experiencing is covered under warranty, upon fixing or replacing your product, we will return the product to you free of charge.

If we determine that the problem you are experiencing is not covered under warranty, we will, if possible, repair your product for a reasonable charge that includes return shipping and handling.
