returns + exchanges

our gear guarantee

alcott guarantees all of our adventure gear against defects in both construction + material. if your alcott gear is defective, click here to complete an online warranty claim. in most cases, we do not need you to ship us the item back and if so, we will mail you a pre-paid envelope. most likely, we will simply mail you some new gear or offer you credit towards the purchase of something else.

Please note that this warranty does not cover the wear + tear caused by your adventures over time, damage caused by your dog or another dog (like chewing), cuts or tears, or issues caused by improper use/sizing. If you have modified or altered the product in any way from its original design, that is also not covered by our gear guarantee. however, if you loved your gear to the point of no return or it suffered from chewing or other incidents that aren't normally covered, let us know about it. we may be able to offer a solution or offer a discount on some new gear. 

shipping fee reimbursement

we know that returning/exchanging your online purchases isn't always easy. you have to find a good box, dig out some tape from your junk drawer, get to the post office or schedule a delivery, pay for the shipping, etc. and we know you would much rather be spending time with your dog. because we appreciate your business and hate to inconvenience you, we'll offer you an e-gift card to spend on our site for the exact amount you had to pay to ship us your gear. it never expires and you can treat your dog to some new gear.
