    Rant " lifetime warranty against defects in materials and craftsmanship"

    Even the pricey mission workshop bags have this squirrelly lifetime warranty. Seems like a sneaky way to slap "lifetime warranty" into blurbs on your product. Wouldn't most reputable companies handle any defects in their product? If you're going to offer a lifetime warranty, make it a real one like craftsmen tools, buck knives etc.

    I wish badlands made a good backpack for biking

    "REI Gurantee

    From other online discussion groups, I read that there is no time limit; similar to Costco's policy.

    I'm a big fan of REI. Prices aren't the best but sometimes I buy from them because of their guarantee.

    About 10 years ago I bought an REI rain jacket for biking. Used it a couple times. Then it got moldy in a closet. Washed it per instructions and it totally disentegrated. Took it back to REI, told them it was honestly 10 years old... and they still gave $60 credit for it. Wow!

    I generally only shop there during clearance sales for good deals.
    If you shop there outside of the sales, REI then stands for: Really Expensive Items.
