I had a 1 year old pair of beans that started leaking last year. They were in great shape. I was able to get a replacement under warranty. I sprang a leak in the new ones after a few times out, but there was a visible hole. I repaired it with aqua seal. If the seams start leaking, I Doubt they will replace them again. If they dont, I'm done with them. The reason I bought them at their price was the warranty. I have a pair of $60 waders that started leaking but I didn't want to deal with shipping, that's why I bought the beans. The quality is about the same. Id rather buy 3 or 4 pair of those and patch as required than spend the money on overpriced beans if they no longer have their lifetime warranty.
