Welcome to the Mountain Gear online store. Inside you'll see features that make shopping easier and give you the tools you need to make better choices about which gear is right for you. You can use order tracking to find out the status of your order.

Offering you more choices and giving you more information are two of the obvious aspects of our site. What you may not notice right away is the community that is Mountain Gear. As a company, we are collectively a group of people who love selling the best gear to be found. We are skiers, climbers, paddlers, cyclists, hikers, world travelers, runners - you name it - we are people who are passionate about playing in the outdoors. As Mountain Gear has grown from a single store to a company with a community of customers around the world, it seemed only natural that we offer more than a place to buy, but a place to be as well. Join us - you'll find opinions, advice, gear, travel and images all bound up in our shared passion for the outdoors. Your adventure starts here.

Returns & Exchanges: Satisfaction guaranteed on every purchase

General returns & exchanges

We guarantee every product we sell. If a product does not meet your expectations during its useful life, we promise to repair it, replace it or give you a refund.

Items may be returned if new, clean and in original packaging and with all labels and tags included. Weight-bearing climbing equipment is not returnable.

You may return items by filling out the form on the back of your invoice or by downloading the Returns Form. Basically, we want to know:

  • If all of your contact information(name, email, address, phone #) is correct
  • Your order # and customer #
  • Why the item didn't work for you (fit, color, etc)
  • If you are requesting a refund or an exchange
  • If you are requesting an exchange, please tell us the item #, size and color of the new item
  • Which credit card we should credit (refund) or charge (if a balance is due on an exchange)

Always keep a copy of your invoice for your own records. If you are returning footwear or anything in a packaged box, wrap the box so no labels are put directly onto the cardboard. Once you've completed the Returns Form, send your package via a trackable shipping method (UPS, FedEx, USPS with Delivery Confirmation) to:
