Return Policy

Our WINTER CLEARANCE SALE is on now. All discounted items are currently marked down up to 70% off and are on closeout. All returns on closeout items must be postmarked/shipped within 14 days of purchase.

You may return most unused items to us for a full refund provided they are unused and in brand new and resalable condition with all tags, packaging, accessories and documentation still intact and in their original condition. For defective items, please click here.

For all items (including clothing), please do not cut off or remove the tags if you think that you might need to return the item. Please do try on any apparel item for fit, but please do not launder or wear the item outside or return it with any stains, lint/hair (human or animal) or any strong odors.


Due to health and safety regulations, legal liability reasons and for your personal safety, the following categories of items may not be returned or exchanged.

  • Climbing & snow safety equipment:  carabiners, harnesses, quickdraws, ropes, runners, cords, belay devices, breathing systems (such as Black Diamond AvaLung), etc.
  • Undergarments: "next to skin" garments such as long underwear that come in direct contact with your "private parts"


  • All valid returns will receive a full refund of the purchase price.
  • Sorry, we do not refund any shipping or return postage costs.
  • We process most returns within 1-2 business days (slightly longer during and after the peak holiday season). Please allow up to one billing cycle for your credit card company to process and post the refund amount to your account.


To make an exchange, please return the original item by following the return instructions above and place a new order online for the new item you wish to receive. You will be separately charged for the new order.

We process all exchanges as a separate order because we sell specialty and seasonal items with limited availability. As a result, there is a good chance that the item you want will sell out before we receive your return. Therefore, we highly recommend placing an order as soon as possible for the item you wish to receive.

Defective Items

We stand behind every product we sell. If an item you received is defective and within the manufacturer's warranty policy, please contact the appropriate manufacturer. If you need assistance, please email us at and we will gladly assist you in making a warranty claim with the manufacturer.

For international customers, please note that you will be responsible for all shipping and postage costs associated with making a warranty claim. Unfortunately, due to high international shipping costs, this is a small risk that you agree to take in placing an international order.
