Free Shipping


FREE Shipping for US Ground Orders over $75

No one wants to pay for shipping so here’s the deal: If your order is $75 or more, then ground shipping is on us. If you need something faster than standard, which usually means 7-10 days, then we’re going to have to charge you for something faster. If you need to receive something by a specific day (like a birthday or Christmas), we strongly recommend you ship 2nd day air.

Orders received before 10 a.m. PST Monday- Friday are normally shipped the next business day. If for any reason this is not the case, we will contact you right away. 

Please note: Our primary shipper, UPS, will only accept shipments to a valid street address, they do not deliver to P.O. Boxes. If you wish to ship to a P.O. Box address, the recipient´s telephone number must be included on the label. Packages addressed to P.O. Boxes may be delayed, will not be covered by any UPS Service Guarantee, and will require an address correction charge. Additionally, Army Post Office (APO) and Fleet Post Office (FPO) addresses are not accepted.

 *Oversize/overweight items may be subject to a shipping surcharge. An oversize item is a large item, such as a rolling duffel bag or float tube, which can be shipped via standard carrier services (UPS, Fedex, etc.), but incurs a higher shipping charge due to the size and/or weight of the item. Oversize shipping charges range from $35.00 and up for ground shipping depending on the size, weight, destination and shipping method selected. If your order contains oversize items, we will contact you via e-mail or phone to quote the additional shipping charges. Once we get your approval, the difference will be applied and your product will be shipped. 

**International Orders are not subject to USA taxes. However, it is possible that import duties (like VAT) will be applied by the country of final destination. You are responsible for payment of all applicable duties, taxes and other fees. Please contact your local customs office for information on duties, taxes and restricted items. We are not responsible for items refused by Customs for non-payment of VAT or other country-based requirements.
