Return Conditions and Procedures
No item may be returned without a Return Material Authorization (RMA) number.
You must call us to obtain this number. If you return an item without an RMA number,
it may be returned to you at your cost. RMA numbers apply only to the item(s) listed
on the RMA packing list we email to you. If you need to return other items, please
call for a new RMA.
When you call for an RMA, we will email you a page with a return label and a packing
list. Please cut this page in half, put the packing list in the box and tape the
label to the outside. We ship from multiple locations and returns do not always
go to the place from which they were shipped. Using the label we email you will
ensure your return goes to the proper place. Returns received without an RMA or
returned to the wrong address will be returned to you at your cost and/or assessed
a restocking fee of up to 15% at our discretion.
In order to receive a full refund, products must be returned in pristine (as new)
condition. This means they must be unopened (any seals or shrink-wrapping must be
intact), and contain all materials originally included with the item(s). If any
promotional items were sent, they must also be returned. You will be charged for
unreturned promotional items at their full standard price. Items not returned in
pristine condition may be charged a restocking fee of 15% (or more depending on
condition and resalability) of the sale price listed on our web site at the time
of the return.
All authorizations are made on specific items. To receive the correct refund, please
return only the item(s)authorized. Should you decide to return other items, please
call again for another authorization. Items returned without an authorization may
be subject to a restocking fee.
Return Shipping Fees
Unless we tell you otherwise, you are responsible for all costs of returning your
order. Send your return using a carrier such as FedEx, UPS, DHL, or USPS with a
signature required, and sufficient insurance to cover yourself in case the returned
items are damaged or lost. Either reuse the original packaging, or make sure that
you use sufficient padding to prevent damage during transit. We are not responsible
for damage to your return once it leaves our doors.
If your package arrives in less than perfect condition, or fails to arrive according
to projected tracking information, notify us immediately. We will place a claim
with the carrier and send you a new product(s) once we receive compensation from
A restocking fee of 15% will be charged for all items removed from blister packaging.
This includes, but is not limited to, batteries and memory cards.
A restocking fee of 15% will also be charged for any optics item purchased for comparison
purposes. This means if you buy two or more spotting scopes, pair of binoculars,
etc., and return any, we will assume that you bought them for comparison purposes,
and will charge a 15% restocking fee for each item returned.
There are no refunds on gift certificates.
