Technical Stuff:

When you receive your item, you have up to 60 days to change your mind and send it back to us.

  • And are returned to us in perfect condition for resale, i.e. unused, with their original packaging and with the labels

We won’t refund you for items which have been customised for you and you may be charged a fee to return these to you– for example bespoke t-shirt prints – unless they are faulty. Our event merchandise is made to order and delivered directly from our printers, for this reason we cannot accept returns on these items.

Items that have been customised with event patches (such as thermal jackets and bags) can only be returned for store credit.

Re-selling safety equipment and underwear is not in anyone’s interest – it causes risk to safety and hygiene. Therefore, we will point you in the direction of the manufacturer in the case of the following items:

  • Medical packs
  • Emergency and Safety Equipment
  • Underwear
  • Items with mouth pieces such as hydration packs, except when a manufacturer's seal on the mouthpiece has not been broken and the containers have not been filled.

Things might not always go to plan. Items could be mis-delivered, or spam folders could catch your emails. Therefore, if you have any doubts, it’s best to email us at where our customer service team will be happy to deal with your queries.
