All sewn gear is warranted for 1 Year for manufacturing and material defects. We want to fix those rare problems quickly and will pay for the return postage. Depending on the nature of the problem, we may repair, replace, or refund warranty returns. Small issues usually get repaired; refunds are rare. Ultralight gear requires reasonable care and treatment on the trail. We do not warranty user damage or porcupine attacks.
We understand very rarely you may buy gear online and find it’s just not for you. That’s OK.

In the online retail world returns can run very high (Amazon, Wayfair, Misc. Clothing Stores, Etc.) Returns add upfront cost to all consumers.

You may return new and unused non-custom gear and non-excluded gear (foam pads, water filters, etc) up to 15 days after it is delivered.  You will need to pay the shipping and insurance for the return.  Note that the actual shipping + handling + processing  + restocking cost is almost always more than what we charged for shipping alone.

Some returns will incur a restocking fee at our discretion. That can vary from $5 for Small Orders ($10 to $50)  $5 to $20  for Medium Orders ($50 – $500) and  $20 to  $50 for Large Orders ($500+).

  • Size exchanges are always Freeand we pay the postage to send you back the new size.
  • Order cancelations before shipping are always Free.
  • Questions about gear before purchase are always Free.

Q: What is “100% New and Unused”? 

A: New & Unused means you tried it at home, and maybe walked around the block to test fit. It means you set the Mid up in your yard,  but are very sure the dog didn’t pee on it. It means it never went on the trail and does not smell like smoke, beer, or skunk. For bivys and quilts try it on top of a clean bed, there are too many dog hairs, and dust bunnies on the floor! For shelters, pick a spot in the yard that is dry, where the grass/leaves/weeds, etc. are not too tall.



We are happy to do damage repairs when possible and will only charge the actual shop time required for the repair + return shipping. Repairs are charged at $50 / hour. Please, only send in clean gear for repair!  If we have to clean the gear before repair, it may be expensive and take weeks extra time.

Example Repair Cost: A zipper pull replacement on a Bivy or Mid would be about $30 + Return Shipping.
