Cabela’s brand waders are covered under the store’s Legendary Guarantee, which protects against manufacturing defects for the life of the product — typically four to five years for waders.
Cabela’s Waders Warranty Policy
Cabela’s Legendary Guarantee covers some Cabela’s brand merchandise from manufacturer defects for the life of the product. This warranty extends to Cabela’s waders, customer service representatives said.
We spoke with multiple Cabela’s customer service representatives via online chat on Cabela’s website and by calling Cabela’s customer service center at (800) 237-4444 to get details on Cabela’s waders warranty policy.
The warranty does not cover normal wear and tear, Cabela’s representatives said. Normal wear and tear is damage that occurs from regular use and includes broken zippers, loosened stitching, a general breakdown of materials over time, scuffs, scratches, and marks. (Cabela’s used to offer a lifetime guarantee that included normal wear and tear on its store-brand products, but the program has been discontinued.)
Cabela’s considers the typical lifetime of store-brand waders to be about four or five years.
While Cabela’s does not repair products, the store will often issue a full replacement or a percentage off a new pair of waders within four to five years of the purchase date if a manufacturing defect occurs.
Within one year of the purchase date, waders are typically replaced. After one year of use, the waders will be evaluated to determine if a replacement pair or discount will be issued. Discount amounts vary, depending on the condition of the waders.
To make a claim, bring your waders to any Cabela’s or Bass Pro Shops retail store. You will need to show your original purchase information, such as a receipt. Waders can often be replaced the same day in stores. If the same item is not available in-store, it can be ordered and shipped.
Alternatively, you can fill out an online return form and ship your defective product to Cabela’s. Cabela’s customer service will follow up with further details.
