    Default Backpack repair

    Does anyone knows where can I get my backpack repaired?
    It got a broken bucket and needs replacement; however its not a straightforward job since some sitching job are required.

    many thanks!

    Hi Encion & tweek,
    Thanks for the lobang

    Encino,
    mine sub-brand one, Nikko, heard b4? :lol:
    I don't think have got even one year warranty.

    anyway, this backpack have been with me for 5years.
    I think it was broken during my 2week backpacking to japan
    I return home with a pretty bad backache due to this

    But isnt that Deuter Bag has lifetime warranty? The deuter i bought @ jurong pt backpack shop, and the owner gave me the card containing all outlets which repair it free under lifetime warranty.And in fact, if i am not wrong, the shop i bought the deuter is also one of the shops.

    Maybe next time ur deuter needs repair service u might wanna check out its lifetime warranty?

    Hmm, would be interested in repairs for that. But waterproofing would be tricky isn't it? They'd need to have materials cut and trim to exact measurements etc.

    Hi

    If I'm not wrong, branded backpack like Eaglecreek have lifetime warranty. I'm not really sure whether Lowe Alpine has such services or not. The next backpack I'm going to get will be definitely a Eaglecreek.
