Reproofing Waterproof Garments:

We can reproof your garment for you $20.  

Repairs Process:

  • Wash and dry your garment (we really don't want your blood and guts in our nice clean manufacturing room).  If your garment arrives unwashed, we will charge you $25 to wash it.  Alternatively Davey said if you send us a filthy garment with blood or cow poop all over it, he'll put a dog turd in the pocket before it's sent back to you.  Honest, he did say that.
  • Complete the Garment Repair Form and send along with your clean garment to:  
    Swazi Apparel Ltd, PO Box 567, Levin, New Zealand
  • When returning gear to our workshop, please write the following on the outside of the package: 'Clothing returned to manufacturer for credit/repair/exchange' It helps our friends at customs categorise it and means we get the gear quicker.

Please note that if the garment is not washed, it will not be repaired.
