    I get the impression that there are a lot of warranty returns from other brands, possibly even comparably so. What's intriguing about Bremont owners is just how open they are about their warranty...

    That's an interesting question. The price of Bremonts is a common point of discussion. It's interesting that they're often considered overpriced when similar offerings from other manufacturers cost...

    To bring this thread back on topic, the TZ-UK forum has a thread which effectively berates Bremont as a brand. Actually berate might be too strong a word as it's simply a sarcastic 'dig' at Bremont...
