Cabela's Lifetime Warranty On Wading Boots: How Long Is A Lifetime?
Posted May 11 2010 - 12:08 AM
I'm considering getting some Cabela's Ultra Light Wading Boots. Does anyone have any real world experience with just exactly how long Cabela's considers "the lifetime of the product" for a wading boot?
Other Cabela's brand merchandise is guaranteed for only one year.

You might want to call customer service about the wading boots in question, I don't know what is considered normal wear and tear for wading boots

This is the 3rd season of using the Ultra Lightweights and their still kicking comfortable. I'd get another pair in a heartbeat but....no need. Mine are still good. I'm sure if something was wrong Cabellas would exchange them without a problem.

I just bought Ultra Lite 2 wading boot to replace mine for the third time.
old pair in less than a year
I do fish a lot though. I wonder if I can get a credit for the new ones I just got. I would like two years out of them.
They did redesign the boots and fixed the sides. The sides blow out prematurely.
Ill bet I get a few bucks back if not all.

Jameso, let us know how you make out with your boots.

They sent me a letter (paraphrase) - this return is outside our guidelines, but we will do it for you anyways, more or less.
I was a bit pissed and called them to tell them that they themselves redeisgned the boot because of a flaw in the sides where it seperates. They specifically mentioned the sides were reinforced in the new models. I told them I didnt appreciate it lol.
Either way though, they took care of me and thats cool.
The new Ultra Light 2's are more money, but they are nice and are EEE width as well. They fit me perfect. I am real happy so far.

Cabella's is usually very good with customer service, and they seem to take pride in what they do and actually work to help better the hunting/fishing/camping industries.
I am a total ocean sportsman, and I hate no one else who loves the ocean.
