Ultra tough and cut to allow for excellent range of motion. Cordura reinforcement in the seat and on the knees are great for portaging though the woods or hanging out on the beach. Forrest W.

The metal tooth front entry and relief zippers have been replaced by nylon zippers which are much lower profile, less work to open and close, and easier to keep clean and lubricated. Having less bulk across the front of the suit and in the seat will make for an ever more comfortable fit under your life-jacket and while sitting in your kayak. Additionally, instead of layered on patches, Cordura® GORE-TEX® has been integrated directly into the high wear areas of the seat and knees providing the same durability in a cleaner, thinner package.

Carriers impose varying size restrictions on international shipments and as such not all shipment methods will be available for all products. These restrictions include, but are not limited to, One-Piece Kayak and SUP Paddles which can not be shipped internationally via the United States Postal Service. You may select to ship the items via UPS or choose to custom order a break-down configuration. Kayak paddles can be ordered in 2 or 4 piece configurations, SUP paddles can be ordered in a 3 piece travel configuration.
Due to the oversize nature of one piece whitewater and SUP paddles, and recent changes in the shipping industry, standard shipping on these items starts at $14.95. One-Piece Kayak and SUP Paddles cannot be shipped internationally via the United States Postal Service. You may select to ship the items via UPS or choose to custom order a break-down configuration. Kayak paddles can be ordered in either 2 or 4 piece configurations, while SUP paddles can be ordered in a 3 piece travel configuration.
The cost of standard shipping on heavier items shipped within the continental U.S. will range in price from $14.95 - $24.95 depending on the size and weight. To find out the exact cost of shipping, simply add the item to your cart and enter the required shipping info.
Kayaks and Stand Up Paddleboards are only available for in-store pickup or local delivery within the Puget Sound area of Western Washington. Delivery is free within Kitsap County for boat and board purchases over $1000.00 and starts at $50.00 otherwise. The same topography which makes the Puget Sound area such a wonderful place to paddle, also makes it difficult for us to make deliveries. We all love riding the ferries, but they sure can get expensive!
We do not have the ability to ship Kayaks or SUP's outside of Western Washington at this time.
We know things can change so address corrections do happen. If the correction is due to our error or if the package has not shipped from our facility there is no charge, so notify us as soon as possible. Once the package has shipped there is a service fee up to $15.00 to change the delivery address that is charged to us by the carrier. We may not be able to change the address once the package is in transit and it may have to be returned to us for reshipment. If that's the case then you will be liable for any additional shipping costs.
We understand that it can be difficult to get that perfect piece of gear the first time around. That is why here at Olympic Outdoor Center if you are not completely satisfied with your purchase we will grant a full refund or exchange the product for your preferred size or color. Customers are responsible for the shipping costs for returns and/or exchanges. OOC will pay the shipping costs, including shipping refunds, if the return is a result of our error or a manufacturing defect (return tracking number required). Learn More
