We make pieces that last, and if they don’t, we want to know about it. So if it’s not working or fitting or standing up to its task, we’ll take it back. L.L. himself always said that he didn’t consider a sale complete “until goods are worn out and the customer still satisfied.”

Our products are guaranteed to give 100% satisfaction in every way. Return anything purchased from us at any time if it proves otherwise. We do not want you to have anything from L.L.Bean that is not completely satisfactory.

Special Considerations

To help protect our customers and make sure every return is dealt with fairly, in certain situations we may either require a receipt or decline a return, including:

  • We can't accept items for return that were not purchased directly from L.L.Bean (such as items purchased at thrift stores, online sellers or garage sales).
  • If an item has a missing label or it has been defaced, we can't accept it for return without a receipt because we can't be certain it was purchased directly from us.
  • On rare occasions we may find it necessary to require a receipt for returns based on the nature of prior transactions.
  • In our stores, if you do not have a receipt and can't provide a valid ID, we can't accept items for return.
  • For the safety of our employees, we can't accept items that have been soiled or contaminated until they have been cleaned.
