Warranty & Return Policy


Do we accept returns and exchanges? Of course! In the event you need to make a return or exchange, please email hello@rheosgear.com within 30 days and follow a few simple prompts to purchase your return label (7USD). Once approved we will email you a return label. You can send your return back in its original box or one similar and once we receive it we will issue a refund. Please be aware a return/exchange is only considered valid if it is received within 15 business days from the date the return label was created. If you are exchanging, the exchange will be processed once we receive the return. All orders are returnable within the first 30 days for any size, fit, or style reason as long as they are returned in new and re-sellable condition. Refunds/exchanges are not guaranteed. 

International returns and exchanges must be sent back through a carrier of your choice as we are unable to send a return label. 


We provide a one year limited manufacturer's warranty supporting all aspects of the frame resulting from non-accidental damage. This warranty is valid for a single claim within the year, with photo evidence required for support. Translation: If there's something wrong with your shades, we'll make it right for you. Warranty replacements may be subject to fees for shipping and fulfillment of approximately $20 anywhere in the United States (international shipping may vary). 


With high scratch and chemical resistance, our Nylon Optics stand up to the grittiest sea salt with proper care. They're rated for 120 hours of continuous exposure to humidity and saltwater, this is the highest in the industry. This means they're strong but sometimes mother earth is stronger and it doesn't mean they're indestructible.

If you have a lens issue, we have you covered with our 1-year Saltwater Promise lens replacement program. Warranty replacements may be subject to fees for shipping and fulfillment of approximately $20 anywhere in the United States (international shipping may vary). However, we have you totally covered within the first 30 days of purchase! 

Here are some suggestions for how to protect your shade’s lenses in the future:

-After use in salt water, rinse with fresh water before wiping the lenses down

-Take care not to use certain apparel with anti-odor materials (often containing silver) that can wear away at the lenses

-Avoid leaving your shades in high heat and cold areas such as the dashboard of your vehicle or boat


We also want you to be comfortable taking your shades to go and play! Should any accidental damage or loss happen, shoot us a note and we look into free replacement parts or hook you up with a 30% discount for a replacement. This can be done one time per order placed originally through our website or orders placed with our Rheos marketplace account directly on Amazon. International orders may have additional shipping costs. 

Please email hello@rheosgear.com from the email address associated with your account with a confirmed shipping address, the style/colorway that needs to be replaced, and a photo of the damage for our records to initiate a warranty claim.
