What is the Backcountry Returns policy
When you buy something from Backcountry, you have one year to return it. That’s our Backcountry Returns policy in a nutshell, but there are a few things to keep in mind before you start packing up your return. First, we only accept returns that are in new, unused condition with all the original tags attached. If something you bought is defective, please reach out to our Customer Support team at 1-800-409-4502 so they can help get you set up with a warranty replacement. And finally, make sure to include a note in your return with your order number and the reason for the return so we can process it as quickly as possible.
Now that you know the basics of our Backcountry Returns policy, we hope you’ll feel confident making purchases knowing that you can always change your mind later. We want you to be happy with your gear, and we’ll do whatever we can to make that happen.
How do I return an item to Backcountry
If you’re not satisfied with an item you purchased from us, we’re here to help. You can return most items within 30 days of purchase for a full refund of the product price. Shipping charges are non-refundable. Please note that all returns must be in new, unused, and unaltered condition with all original tags and packaging attached. The following items are returnable only if defective OR still in unopened boxes: undergarments, swimwear, and wetsuits. Defective items will be replaced with a like item. If the replacement item is out of stock, you will receive a full refund of the purchase price. All returns require a Return Authorization (RA) number that can be obtained by logging into your account and clicking on “Return an Item” next to the order you wish to return, or by calling Customer Service at 888-663-1570. Once you have obtained an RA number, please write it clearly on the outside of the box and include a copy of your original packing slip. We recommend that you use UPS or FedEx for your return as we are not responsible for lost shipments. Shipping charges are non-refundable.

Will Backcountry pay for return shipping
In short, no. Backcountry does not pay for return shipping. There are a few reasons for this policy, the main one being that it would be incredibly expensive for the company to do so. Additionally, returns are often due to user error (i.e. ordering the wrong size), and it is not Backcountry’s responsibility to cover those costs. If you’re not sure about an item, it’s best to order it from a retailer with a more lenient return policy.
