My order is past your 60-days from delivery return policy, what are my options?

If you have any other questions, please reach out to us. 

What if I purchased Moment gear from another site and/or seller? 

If you have purchased from Amazon, Apple, Google, Freefly Wayward, or B&H, you will need to first contact the vendor from which you purchased for all exchanges and return inquiries. We're not able to process any refunds for purchases made through third-party resellers. However, you are eligible for any warranty claims on Moment products directly through us.
