15 Things That You Need to Only Buy Once in Your Life

Many things, especially those that we frequently use, break down or wear down over time. We usually think that this process is inevitable, so we go out and buy a new item. You’d be surprised but some ordinary things like an umbrella, a bag, a pen, and even socks can be repaired or replaced with new ones for free since they have a lifetime warranty.

We’d like to mention that this interesting feature only works when it comes to certain brands.

Bright Side has compiled a list of companies that assure us their goods are of excellent quality and that’s why they come with a lifetime guarantee.

15. Briggs & Riley

American company Briggs & Riley is a pretty young company (it was founded in 1993), but they’re already well-known for their high-quality, expensive bags and suitcases. The company also provides a lifetime guarantee in case your bag (or any part of it) needs to be repaired. The guarantee also covers cases where your bag is broken or damaged. Briggs & Riley will repair it free of charge, even if it’s the airline’s fault.

14. Calphalon

Calphalon produces tableware that withstands the test of time. This brand is really popular and you can find it on Amazon and at Walmart. Most of the items come with a lifetime guarantee, so the company will replace any item that is found to be defective in material or workmanship. By the way, the brand doesn’t just make pans and frying pans, but also knives, kitchen appliances, and baking dishes.

13. CamelBak

CamelBak is a company that produces light cycling backpacks, bottles, and hydration packs. Their guarantee covers all items from manufacturing defects in materials and workmanship for the lifetime of the product. There’s one nuance: the brand indicates that the term “lifetime” refers to the lifetime of the item. So if your item simply wears down, you won’t get a free repair.

12. Chicago Cutlery

Chicago Cutlery produces stylish kitchen knives that come with a lifetime warranty (even if the flaw is found while using them at home).

11. Cross

Cross is an established company that has been around for more than 170 years and used to produce gold and silver casings for pencils and pens, reflecting the Cross family’s history as jewelers. The company developed many innovative new writing instruments, including being the forerunners of modern mechanical pencils and the earliest stylographic pens. Today, the company manufactures writing materials that come with a lifetime guarantee.

10. Darn Tough Vermont

It may sound strange but this company provides a lifetime guarantee that covers their socks. What’s more, you can return them if they don’t suit you. Darn Tough Vermont will offer you another pair without any questions.

9. Feetures

Feetures also produces socks that you can return and get another pair if you realize you don’t like your purchase. All socks have a lifetime warranty.

8. Davek

Davek will repair or replace your umbrella for free if it should fail to function properly at any time for any reason. The company says, “We want this to be the last umbrella you will ever need.”

7. Kingston

International company Kingston manufactures USB drives and different computer components. All products are covered by a lifetime warranty for the life of the product. If your item fails to work properly, the company will repair it or replace it.

6. JanSport

JanSport has been producing backpacks for students since 1967. The website says that JanSport products are about quality and durability. So if your backpack breaks down, the company will fix it or replace it for free.

5. Maglite

This popular brand has been producing flashlights since 1955. These durable items are used by thousands of law enforcement officers, emergency responders, and military service members around the world. The website indicates that the warranty may vary from product to product. They offer a lifetime warranty in the Western Hemisphere, and a 10-year warranty elsewhere. Let’s admit that that’s not bad for a flashlight.

4. Rainbow Sandals

Stop spending your money on cheap flip-flops and invest in a pair that will last way longer. Rainbow Sandals promises to repair your sandals if they are damaged or defective due to manufacturing defects. The sandals will be eligible for the warranty until you have worn through anywhere on the top or bottom layer of the sole.

3. Red Oxx

Red Oxx offers a lifetime guarantee covering all their bags and suitcases. So, if you find any defect, the company will make every effort to repair your bag. If they are unable to repair your bag, they’ll replace the item with an identical product.

2. Teddy Bear

This giant teddy created by Vermont Teddy Bear Company can be fixed even if your dog has played with it. If the bear’s injuries are too severe and there’s no chance to “cure” them, the company will send you a new toy.

1. Eddie Bauer

Eddie Bauer says, “If you are unhappy with it for any reason, you may return it for an exchange or refund.” By the way, it’s free to do this.

Would you spend more money on an item if you knew it was reliable and durable?
