Enjoy the benefits of a KILWELL LIMITED LIFETIME WARRANTY against faulty materials, components and workmanship, for the lifetime of your Kilwell Branded product.

This warranty is limited to New Zealand purchases, the original purchaser only and covers defects occurring under normal use of the product. Warranty is not valid for accidental damage resulting from abuse, misuse, neglect, failure to follow instructions for use, unauthorised alterations, modifications or normal wear and tear or purchases made from overseas.

Kilwell reserve the right to assess and reject any claims if deemed unacceptable. If your Kilwell product was damaged due to misuse, our repair department can analyse the damage and repair it for a reasonable fee.

Buck KnivesForever Warranty










In the unlikely event of a warranty claim, submission of your registration card will ensure your claim is handled with speed, efficiency and honest service.
The Buck Knives Forever Warranty is pretty much what it says. A Buck Knife is built to last. But if for some reason, your Buck is defective due to materials or workmanship, you can return it for repair.
We will repair your knife, including parts, labour and or replacement with a new knife at our discretion. Keep in mind; repair is not always possible or practical. We will replace your knife with the same or one that is comparable if your knife is no longer available. Please note if your knife has sentimental value when you send the knife to us.
If your knife needs to be repaired, please send it to us for evaluation. Don’t try to repair it yourself. Self–repair will void your warranty, not to mention that it could cause self–injury.

Reasons why we may charge you a small fee for a repair:

  • Damage caused by misuse or abuse.
  • Failure to care, clean and maintain your knife.
  • Damage due to self–repair.
  • Knife loss due to shipping to and from the Buck Knives factory
  • Damage due to dismantling or tampering with your Buck knife
  • Sharpening your Buck knife on a grinder.

Should you ever have to claim for a warranty repair, please return your Buck product to the stockist where you made your purchase, along with your proof of purchase, and a description of the problem or contact Kilwell Customer Service to discuss your options: 07 345 9094

Orvis Rod Warranty












The following fly rods only are covered by the Orvis 25 Year Guarantee:

  • Clearwater
  • Recon
  • Helios 3
  • Mission

Should you ever have a claim we ask you to return the item to us with proof of purchase, your contact details, and a description of the problem. Warranty applies to the original purchaser only. If you wish to return a fly rod under this guarantee, there will be a $99.00 (incl GST) warranty handling & international shipping charge to send the rod to the USA. Domestic NZ freight is not covered in this fee. 


While Orvis goes to great lengths to ensure that every pair of waders is built to their high-quality standards, wear, and tear, as well as the natural breakdown of materials over time, will eventually cause waders to fail.

The lifespan of waders is normally 3-5 years.

If you are not satisfied with your waders at the time of purchase, or if they fail for any reason within the first 60 days, we will replace them or refund your money, no questions asked. Beyond that, waders that fail due to manufacturing issues or defects will be repaired, replaced, or refunded, at Orvis's discretion.

Damage or failure from normal use, wear and tear, or accidents are not covered under this warranty. If waders are returned to Kilwell and they need to be repaired due to wear and tear, there will be a repair charge. Our Customer Service team will let you know how much this will be before proceeding.
