I can't say I've been impressed with the Gore-Tex "warranty" in practice.
I treated myself to a pair of arse-crampingly expensive Gore-Tex boots about a year ago. During the first ride in the rain, I learned that the right boot leaks in the wet.
Gore-Tex told me to contact the retailer first. I did so, and I sent the boots to the retailer (at my expense) as asked.
The retailer sent me a pic of the boots standing in a pan of water with paper towels inside and said the paper towels didn't get wet, so the boots didn't leak. After a few pointless rounds of "the right boot does so leak" and "no it doesn't" and "yes it does" and "nuh uh", he flatly refused to contact Gore-Tex or send the boots to Gore-Tex. Several days later, the boots were back on my doorstep and now I'm sort of stuck. The right boot still leaks when in use on an actual foot on an actual motorcycle in actual rain. They're fantastic boots other than an occasionally soggy sole on the right.
I suppose I'm expected to use the boots as part of a static tabletop display or diorama, not for riding a motorcycle.
Anyway, I suppose I could go into full lawyer mode, crank up the engines of ire and dudgeon, and waste hours pounding away to get my due (these boots aren't even available any more, so I don't know what would happen), but... I'd rather go ride.
