Quick Answers for Common Questions

BUILD TIME & DELIVERY

We do our best to deliver our gear as quickly as possible, but hand-building each piece of gear to order does take longer than grabbing a pre-made piece out of a container from a factory overseas.

When we complete your order and ship, you WILL RECEIVE a confirmation email with tracking information from our system.

Though frequently we can get things out sooner, orders typically are cut, built, and shipped within 2 weeks of receiving an order. During busy seasons (Holidays, In-Season, etc.) orders can take us a bit longer to fulfill.

NEED IT BY A SPECIFIC DATE?

Make sure to let us know of any upcoming trips or need-by dates in the NOTES section when you place your order, and we’ll do our best to have it to you in time.  In some cases, expedited shipping may be required, and additional charges may apply.

OUR GUARANTEE

Made with care in the USA, our gear is built to last. As such, we are proud to warrant our products to the original owner against defects in workmanship and materials for the lifetime of the product. Our warranty does not cover damage caused by neglect, improper care, accident, or normal wear and tear.

REPAIRS & UPDATES

We are committed to keeping your gear ready for as long as we can.  With this in mind, we have created a simple way to have your gear repaired and updated as possible HERE.  Some features – like the integrated net holster on our current slings – cannot be added to older packs without a complete rebuild.

Velcro can be replaced at any time (you just cover shipping).

WARRANTY CLAIMS

If your gear has failed due to a defect in our workmanship or the materials we used, and you are the original owner, please CONTACT us with your name, the product that failed, and a description of the failure so that we can help correct the problem. Though extremely rare, we are happy to repair or replace any gear that fails due to defects.

To extend the life of your gear, they should be kept clean and dry. Our packs like to get rinsed off from time to time and hung to dry. You can also spot treat them with a mild detergent.

PRODUCT CARE – VINYL GEAR

Vinyl is very low maintenance in general, however, we suggest regularly rinsing your gear, and drying it out between uses.  As Vinyl materials are PVC coated, they CAN SHRINK when exposed to heat sources.  As such, you may notice some shrinkage around edges and seams over time.  This is definitely increased when left in hot vehicles, outside in the sun between uses, or when exposed to other sources of heat.  We DO NOT SUGGEST washing your pack in a washing machine, and is SHOULD NEVER be placed in the dryer.

PRODUCT CARE – CORDURA NYLON GEAR

Officially, the folks at Cordura say that “Soil may be removed with spray cleaner or detergent and water. Avoid chlorine or bleach based cleansers.” You will also want to avoid using washing machines / dryers on your gear (these damage the fabrics and their treatments).

Over time, the Durable Water Repellant (DWR) coating on the fabrics will wear, so you can spray your gear with waterproofing for added protection.

PRODUCT CARE – WAXED CANVAS GEAR and COTTONS

Waxed Canvas products will develop marks with use.  This is the norm, and will help to reflect the character of the item as it is used over time.

Sources of heat can damage the waxed coating.  However, some “marks” can be reduced using a hair dryer.

Products built with Waxed Canvas should not be washed in a washing machine, and should NEVER be placed in the dryer.  This will melt the wax that protects the fabric, and may damage your dryer or other items placed in the dryer with the gear.

After-market treatments can be used to re-wax your products to rejuvenate the fabric and extend the life of the product.

PRODUCT CARE – COTTONS and UNWAXED CANVAS

Machine wash on a cold cycle and hang to dry to prevent shrinkage.
