Can I buy a Vollebak gift card? Open Accordion
Yes, you can buy our gift cards here. As soon as you buy one of our gift cards we email it straight over to you, so you don’t have to wait for anything to be posted out.
After you’ve bought a gift card you’ll be able to choose who you want it to be emailed to and when – down to the exact day and hour. Each card comes with a unique code that can be used to buy anything on our site at any time. And the card can be used on a single purchase, more than one purchase, or as part payment towards a purchase.
There’s no expiry date that you have to use the gift card by.
Can I return or exchange an item I've bought from you? Open Accordion
We offer free returns and exchanges up to 30 days after you receive your order. Christmas returns: We have an extended returns period for any orders placed between 1 and 21 December 2018 – if you buy during this time, you can return items from your order anytime up to 31 January 2019.
It’s very simple to return or exchange an item, and we cover the cost of return postage – just email email@example.com with your order number and we’ll get this sorted for you. You can also read more about returns and exchanges here.
Can I change my order details or shipping address after I’ve placed my order? Open Accordion
The best way to make any changes to the items you’ve ordered is to place a new order through our website, then email us on firstname.lastname@example.org to ask to cancel and refund your original order. Doing it this way will make sure you don’t miss out on the size or colour you want to get, if the product you’re ordering is selling fast.
The same thing goes if you’ve entered the wrong shipping address during checkout – the best way to fix this is to place a new order with the correct details, then email us to cancel the original order.
If you’d prefer not to place a new order, you can instead email us with the changes you’d like to make. We’ll always try to make the changes, but if your order is already being processed it might not be possible.

Do your products come with a guarantee? Open Accordion
We guarantee all the gear we make. And it’s designed to be worn hard and in extreme places. It’s why our kit has been used to abseil into volcanoes, trek through jungles, run across mountain ranges, and fight the Arctic winter. It’s even survived Burning Man.
But if you’ve got a piece of kit and something has gone wrong just let us know and we’ll sort you out. We’ll always try to repair it. If we can’t repair it, we’ll replace it. And if we can’t replace it, we’ll refund you.
Just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org anytime.

We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, PayPal and Apple Pay. All of these payment options are 100% secure, with encrypted transactions handled through Shopify Payments, Stripe and PayPal.
