Price

The price of the Products and our delivery charges will be as quoted on our site from time to time, except in cases of obvious error.  Product prices exclude delivery charges and VAT (although the price inclusive of VAT is also stated on the website.) If the rate of VAT changes between the date of your order and the date of delivery, we will adjust the VAT you pay (where VAT is applicable), unless you have already paid for the Products in full before the change in VAT takes effect.

Product prices and delivery charges are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders in respect of which we have already sent you a Dispatch Confirmation. Our site contains a large number of Products and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products listed on our site may be incorrectly priced.  We will normally verify prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that, where a Product's correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Product to you. If a Product’s correct price is higher than the price stated on our site, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the Product, or reject your order and notify you that we are rejecting it. If the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably recognised by you as an error, we do not have to provide the Products to you at the incorrect (lower) price.

Our Refunds Policy

If you return a Product to us because you have notified us in accordance with our standard Terms & Conditions that you do not agree to a change in these terms and conditions or in any of our policies, we will examine the returned Product and will notify you of your refund via e-mail within a reasonable period of time.  We will usually process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 30 days of the day we confirmed to you via e-mail that you were entitled to a refund. We accept no liability for damaged or missing goods which have been returned to us by your carrier.

If you consider that a product is defective you should contact us in accordance with Clause 11 of our Terms and Conditions. We will usually refund any money received from you using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase or by crediting your account, as applicable. This policy does not affect your Statuary Rights under UK Law.

Warranty

The products supplied to you shall on delivery

  1. conform to the description set out on the website
  2. be fit for any purpose held out by us
  3. be free from material defects in design, material and workmanship
  4. comply with all applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.

Except as set out in our Terms and Conditions, all warranties, conditions and other terms implied by statute or common law are, to the fullest extent permitted by law, excluded.

The product warranty does not cover:

  1. defects resulting from fair wear and tear. Please be advised that wear and tear can be accelerated by intense usage and/or the impact of the environment in which they are used. It is your responsibility as a retailer to inform the buyer of the anticipated life of a product, the care required and the correct fitting of any product ensuring your “informed” customer buys the correct product. If the customer rejects your advice you must clearly inform them that this will affect their rights should a warranty issue arise. We would strongly recommend you record this warning on their receipt. Any mis-sold product remains your responsibility not ours. When you are assessing potential warranty issues with customers please be mindful of the hours of wear some products have endured and the environment they are used in. When we assess the impact of fair wear and tear particular consideration will be given to the estimated product lifespan information issued with the Product;
  2. Products which have been neglected, mistreated, overloaded, or used for purposes other than that which they were designed for;
  3. Products which have not been maintained as specified by the manufacturer;
  4. the cost of removing, refitting of accessories or attachments, nor does it cover the cost of transportation or any expenses incurred whilst the Product is out of use;
  5. Products which are expected to wear as part of their use including without limitation boot components, material, zips, rope unless there is a proven manufacturing or material defect;
  6. defects caused by faulty adjustment or repairs and alterations performed by any other person other than an authorised representative;
  7. defects caused by faulty or incorrect fitting or incorrect product size;

If you believe that we have delivered goods which are covered by the warranty you must inform us as per our Terms and Conditions and product replacement will be covered as stated in our Terms and Conditions.

Written Communications

Applicable laws require that some of the information or communications we send to you should be in writing. When using our site, you accept that communication with us will be mainly electronic. We will contact you by e-mail or provide you with information by posting notices on our website. For contractual purposes, you agree to this electronic means of communication and you acknowledge that all contracts, notices, information and other communications that we provide to you electronically comply with any legal requirement that such communications be in writing. This condition does not affect your statutory rights.

Events Outside Our Control

We will not be liable or responsible for any failure to perform, or delay in performance of, any of our obligations under a Contract that is caused by events outside our reasonable control (Force Majeure Event). A Force Majeure Event includes any act, event, non-happening, omission or accident beyond our reasonable control and includes in particular (without limitation) the following:

  1. strikes, lock-outs or other industrial action;
  2. civil commotion, riot, invasion, terrorist attack or threat of terrorist attack, war (whether declared or not) or threat or preparation for war;
  3. fire, explosion, storm, flood, earthquake, subsidence, epidemic or other natural disaster;
  4. impossibility of the use of railways, shipping, aircraft, motor transport or other means of public or private transport;
  5. impossibility of the use of public or private telecommunications networks;
  6. the acts, decrees, legislation, regulations or restrictions of any government; and
  7. pandemic or epidemic.

Our performance under any Contract is deemed to be suspended for the period that the Force Majeure Event continues, and we will have an extension of time for performance for the duration of that period.  We will use our reasonable endeavours to bring the Force Majeure Event to a close or to find a solution by which our obligations under the Contract may be performed despite the Force Majeure Event.
