  • Package the item in the same (or smaller) packaging as it was sent.
  • Once we have received the package, our staff will check the condition, and if it is satisfactory, you will have the purchase price refunded to the card you used for the purchase. Any shipping costs incurred will not be refunded.
  • If the product is not in its original condition, we will charge a restocking fee of up to 50%; this depends on what we deem as the item's resale value. Used items can only be returned if it is a warranty issue; see below for more details.
  • No returns on custom orders.

 

WARRANTY POLICY

We try to test all the gear and brands we sell, and we back all the stuff we sell. Sometimes, however, there are manufacturing issues that slip through the cracks. So if you purchase a product from Frontenac Outfitters and it fails to perform, please get in touch with us, and we will work through the process with you. 

Manufacturers' warranty terms and periods vary, so our experienced staff will review that process for you and develop a solution.

With warranties, all shipping is the customer's responsibility (except in some cases where the manufacturer takes on that cost), please call us at (613) 376-6220, and we will assist you through the process.
