Returns & Exchanges

Guaranteed. You have our word.

At Sea Bags, we believe that each tote bag and accessory we produce is as unique as the recycled sail it was cut from. We carefully cut each sail to preserve the distinguishing characteristics of the sail's previous life on the water. We stand behind all our products, so if you are not 100% satisfied with a product purchased from the Sea Bags website or retail stores, you may return it within 60 Days of purchase for a refund.

Statement on Defective Products

Sea Bags are made from recycled sail materials, which means that no two bags are alike, and signs of hard sailing may be present. Characteristics such as original sail stitching, grommets, rust marks, tell-tales, or other signs of the sail's previous life on the water are the sign of authentic Sea Bags!

With that said, if you receive a product that you believe is defective or damaged, please contact us immediately.

Reimbursement Process

We will reimburse your purchase to the original method of payment or to a Sea Bags Gift Card in some circumstances.

Returns performed at a Sea Bags retail store will be initiated by a sales associate at the time of the return. Please allow 3-5 business days for the refund to be reflected in your banking account.

Products returned to the Sea Bags Headquarters for refund will be initiated by a member of our Returns Department within 3-5 days of being received. Please allow an additional 3-5 business days for the refund to be reflected in your bank account.

Note: AfterPay and PayPal may take an additional business day for the refund to be reflected.
