Please see our International Shipping Policy Page for orders shipped outside the US.
We understand that when you make an order, you want your gear as quickly as possible and we will do our best to make that happen! Most of the items we sell will ship quickly and be at your door fast. Additionally, we work closely with our vendors in order to have the product shipped directly to you from their warehouse if we do not already have it in stock or if their warehouse can get it to you faster. Please read the details below, as there are some exceptions where products might take a little bit longer to get to your door. Always feel free to drop us a line if you have a concern.
Items will have availability status shown once a size/color is selected on the product page; this availability status will also be shown on the shopping cart page. Most products will be marked "In Stock - Ships within 24 Hours." These products will ship same or next day from our warehouse or one of our vendors' distribution centers. While we will do our best to ship from the distribution center closest to you, naturally not all items will always be in stock in every location! In these cases we will typically split the order and ship each package out to you individually. In some cases we may need to consolidate the items in one location to ship out as one package. For Customers needing delivery by a certain date, please choose the corresponding expedited shipping option. Customers may also leave comments upon check out to notify our shipping department of any other shipping requirement (i,e, Signature required, specific ship dates, delivery comments/notes, etc.). If you need an item sooner rather than later, give us a call and we will discuss possible options.
A shipping confirmation email (with tracking numbers) will typically be sent within 24 hours of an item shipping. For example, if you place an order Monday night and it ships out Tuesday morning, you will receive your tracking information either Tuesday evening or Wednesday morning.
Most orders placed before 3:00 p.m. your local time will be processed same day.
Orders placed via our free ground shipping cannot be delivered to a PO Box; they will be required to ship out via USPS for a flat rate. Items shipping out via USPS may require up to five days of additional processing time.
Typically orders will be shipped UPS, FedEx or USPS if this is a problem, please contact us prior to placing your order.
