Sure they will. You just send those holey jokers to the National Supply
BSA at the National Office and explain how the hole was created. I'll betcha a
CSP that you'll get a new pair back by return mail (along with a survey as
wearability of the item).
The BSA has long had a "satisfaction guarantee" on it's products and uniforms.
I think it's in the small print (oh postmaster, please HURRY with my box of good
stuff from the States!!!) on the Catalogues (it used to be there,
someone find what I'm mumbling about and post it here please!!
I've swapped out one of those belts with the matching buckle because the
one end eventually came apart (yeah, yeah....stop eating, right??
the leather (I've had it since 1977!!). I got a new one, smaller than my
which I gave away to a Scout that needed a belt.
That big ol' Quartermaster room in the sky also does special orders at a
above the regular prices...which I agree with you, ARE HIGH!!! But I've always
known the BSA to stand behind what they sell...even if it's overpriced and
get better bargains at the K-Mart or Walmart or Edeka (just had to throw
in because we don't have the latter two here in Germany *smiling*)
