209 Guarantee

Our collection of 209 Swim Shorts have been developed over several years, and we have gone through dozens of prototypes to find the best materials and trims available. We manufacture our collection of 209 Swim Shorts in Portugal and Spain using Italian and Portuguese materials.

We stand firmly behind the quality of our collection of 209 Swim Shorts, and we therefore offer them with our 209 Guarantee. The 209 Guarantee is a 209 week guarantee, which is equivalent to 4 years and 1 week. All swim shorts from our 209 Swim Short collection are therefore guaranteed in their quality for 209 weeks from the date of purchase when they are registered with us here within 45 days of purchase.

If you have bought a pair of swim shorts from us and they have not met your expectations in quality, 209 Mare will repair or replace them. In order to be eligible for the 209 Guarantee, please register your purchase on this page by also including the proof of purchase.

The following quality issues are covered under the 209 Guarantee:

  • Extreme color loss
  • Damage to any of the metal trims, including the zipper and side fasteners
  • Stitching coming undone
  • Material splitting


Recommended Care

In order to keep your 209 Swim Shorts in the best condition we recommend you follow all care guidelines that can be found stitched inside the swim shorts, as well as on the product page on our online shop. In particular, we recommend that you always rinse them after each use, and wash them at 30 degrees Celsius and hang dry them instead of tumble drying. We also recommend always making sure they have been dried before storing them.
