Returns & Exchanges

We hope you’re happy with your new kit and that you get loads of use out of it! However, if something you receive from us isn’t quite what you expected, or you’ve changed your mind about a purchase, returning or exchanging your unused equipment is easy.

To return your purchase, we offer a 28 day window from the date you paid for the item, where you can send it back to us and receive a full refund.

There are a few exclusions to our Returns & Exchanges Policy:

  • Any item not returned as new and in sellable condition – it must be unused, with all original labels, tags and product packaging undamaged and unaltered.
  • Any faulty item where the faults have been caused by accident, neglect, improper care or general wear and tear by the user.
  • Certain items, like swimwear – for hygiene reasons.
  • Gift vouchers – we offer a shorter returns window for these, and charge a small admin fee.

If you return any items outside of our Returns & Exchanges Policy we will be unable to process a full refund. 

Important: Please check your delivery for any signs of damage as soon as you receive it. If your parcel appears to be damaged, please photograph the damage before opening it.

Cancelling or changing your order before we have dispatched it

We aim to process orders quickly, so we are unlikely to be able to change or cancel your order once you’ve placed it.
