  • Orders placed by 11:30am ET will be received by us the same day. Orders placed after 11:30am ET will be received by us the following business day. Delivery times are based on the date we receive the order.
  • Standard delivery (USA): You should receive your merchandise within 5–7 business days of the date we receive your order (in the case of special shipping promotions delivery times may vary as otherwise noted). NOTE: Timely final delivery of items received at APO/FPO addresses is beyond our control.
  • Rush delivery (USA): You should receive your merchandise within 3–4 business days of the date we receive your order. PO boxes are OK. Hawaii and Alaska will ship UPS to street addresses.
    Sorry, no rush orders to Canadian, military, or foreign-service addresses, as timely delivery of items via USPS is beyond our control.
  • Express delivery (USA): No Rolling Backpack or Rolling Carry-On bags — use rush delivery! Street addresses only. No express orders to PO boxes, military or foreign-service addresses, or Canada. You should receive your merchandise within 2 business days of the date we receive your order.
  • Sales Tax in Washington State: Washington State sales tax will be charged on the total of the order plus shipping fees on any merchandise order shipped to an address in Washington State.
  • Canada delivery: We ship all Canadian orders via UPS for all street addresses. You should receive your merchandise within 6–8 business days of the date we receive your order, barring any unexpected customs delays.
    * Exceptions: US Postal Service will be used for all PO Boxes as well as for the Yukon, Northwest Territories, and Nunavut.
  • Canada TAXES & DUTY: For shipments via UPS, our website will automatically calculate and charge for GST/HST and customs duty and forward those payments to the appropriate agencies. This will appear as a separate line on your receipt. There are no extra payments due on arrival. For the USPS (mail) orders listed above, you will pay those taxes and duties at the post office when you pick up the package.
  • Delivery to addresses outside the US & Canada: Barring customs delays (over which we have no control!) you should receive your merchandise within 2 weeks of the date we receive your order.

Need to change shipping information after placing your order?

If your order has already shipped we will happily make a change to shipping for a $15 change fee. We can make the following changes:

  • Reroute package to a new address only if the package is still in transit
  • Put a hold on package for you to pick up at your local UPS facility
  • Delay shipment delivery by up to five business days if you are not able to receive it on the estimated arrival date

We are sorry, but we cannot apply these changes to international orders.
We are not able to speed up the delivery or change the shipping method.
