  • We strive to be environmentally and socially responsible. We really like outdoor gear, but we love the wilderness even more. This philosophy affects everything we do, from using recycled shipping boxes and packing material to supporting like-minded suppliers and business partners. We support companies that have a demonstrated track record of behaving in a socially and environmentally responsible manner.
     
  • We respect your privacy and security. We have a strict policy against disclosing your private contact and billing information (including your e-mail address) without your permission. Also, unlike many retailers, we do not require online registration to complete a purchase.

How are merchants rated?
The Merchant Rating System is an integral part of Yahoo!'s program to guarantee a positive, high-quality online shopping experience. The rating system gathers feedback from shoppers about Yahoo! Shopping merchants and then uses the feedback to determine an overall rating for that merchant. The system is weighted so that the merchant's overall rating reflects the majority of customer ratings. If most customers rate the store positively, the rating will reflect this. The overall rating is displayed next to the store name whenever it appears in the Yahoo! Shopping pages.
  • Bizrate.com GOLD Seal. We have been awarded the GOLD Customer Certified Seal by Bizrate.com, the leading independent online merchant rating organization, based upon an overall customer rating of "Outstanding" (the highest possible rating) for customer service.
     
  • Shopping.com and Epinions.com Trusted Store. We have achieved the highest customer service ratings with other independent customer service rating organizations, including Shopping.com and Epinions.com.
     
  • Don't Just Take Our Word For It. Check out our customers' comments about our service from Bizrate.com and Yahoo! Shopping, two leading independent e-store rating sites.
