Gear repair AFTER warranty expires

Hi all,
does anyone know which riding gear companies will repair their clothing AFTER the warranty expires?

I have done some searches and read through several threads and the only company that seems to repair their product is AeroStitch.

Does BMW, Rev'It, Olympia, Rukka, etc.. offer this service?

Just curious because my current gear is two years old and the fourth zipper has failed. I am willing to pay a little more if the company will stand behind there product.

TIA

Roy

I checked with Olympia and they do not repair due to the extensive waterproofing process. I wanted to get Kathy's jacket repaired after her get-off last year and no go...

Out of warrenty repair

AeroStitch repaired my Darian coat and pants

Just odds and ends no get off or crash.

A new zipper on the left leg of the pants (my fault broke a tooth out in AK)
and a new zipper on the coat (broken due to usage and age)
some new velcro in different places

We pay alot for quality gear and this service just helps us extend the life of our gear.

Great workmanship they take of you during and after the sale
great company and people to deal with.

my .02 your mileage may vary
