We Believe in What We Build
At Platypus, we take pride in engineering the highest-quality outdoor gear available, and we stand behind everything we make. Platypus gear is built to be exceptionally durable. And we back it up with the best service in the industry, all to keep your gear performing for you—and out of landfills.
This Limited Lifetime Warranty is provided to you by Cascade Designs, Inc., a company doing business as Platypus. So long as you are the original purchaser, and you use your Platypus product for the use it was intended (for example, using packs for hydration while on the trail, and not as rock carriers for landscaping efforts), 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 the useful life of your product.
“Useful life” means your product’s lifetime—not your lifetime; in other words, your product’s warranty lasts only until it has reached the point where it is no longer safely useful/functional, a point which varies for each product depending how often a product is used, where it is used, how well it has been cared for and maintained, etc. The wear and tear all products experience through use will cause them to show age and wear; the more a product is used, the faster wear and tear will occur, and the faster that product will reach the end of its useful life.
Following your purchase of a Platypus product from an authorized Platypus 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 Platypus 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.
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
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.
For customers seeking help with a warranty or repair outside the United States and Canada, please consult our International Distributor listings.
Many of our international distributors have regional offices and are set up to service products purchased in-country and those being used by tourists and travelers. Some may charge a service fee on products imported from non-local sellers; please contact the distributor for details.

THIS WARRANTY GIVES YOU SPECIFIC LEGAL RIGHTS, AND YOU MAY ALSO HAVE OTHER RIGHTS WHICH VARY FROM STATE TO STATE. PLATYPUS’S MAXIMUM LIABILITY IS LIMITED TO INCIDENTAL DAMAGES NOT TO EXCEED THE ORIGINAL PURCHASE PRICE OF THE PRODUCT. PLATYPUS DISCLAIMS AND EXCLUDES ANY LIABILITY FOR ANY CONSEQUENTIAL OR OTHER DAMAGES RESULTING FROM ANY REASON WHATSOEVER. THIS EXCLUSION AND LIMITATION APPLIES TO ALL LEGAL THEORIES UNDER WHICH DAMAGES MAY BE SOUGHT, AND WILL APPLY EVEN IF ANY REMEDY FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE. SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. EXCLUDING THE LIMITED WARRANTY PROVIDED ABOVE, PLATYPUS AND ITS AFFILIATES MAKE NO WARRANTIES, EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED; AND NO WARRANTIES WHICH EXTEND BEYOND ANY MANUFACTURER SUPPLIED DESCRIPTION ACCOMPANYING THE PRODUCT. THE REMEDIES ABOVE ARE YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDIES AGAINST PLATYPUS AND ITS AFFILIATES, REGARDLESS OF LEGAL THEORY. SHOULD A COURT FIND THIS LIMITED WARRANTY BREACHED, PLATYPUS’S ONLY OBLIGATION WILL BE, AT ITS OPTION, TO EITHER REPAIR OR REPLACE PRODUCT.
