Size Restrictions

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.

Over-Sized Items

One Piece Paddles

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.

Overweight Items

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 & Paddle Boards

Kayaks and Stand Up Paddle Boards 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. 

Other Charges

Address Corrections

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.

Returns & Exchanges

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

  • For best results, clean garments with Nikwax Tech Wash before applying.
Features:

What is DWR?

Durable Water Repellent (DWR) is a treatment manufacturers apply to the outer fabric of waterproof-breathable technical outerwear – drysuits, drytops, splashwear, raingear, ski jackets, etc.

Facts:

    • They’re chemical substances that bond with the individual fibers in the threads of the fabric.
    • Their chemical properties prevent water from soaking into the threads. Instead, they cause the water to “bead up” and roll off the fabric.
    • This keeps the spaces between the threads open and really helps moisture from your body escape more easily through the waterproof-breathable membrane or coating. Also, when water beads up and rolls off without wetting out the fabric, you reduce evaporative cooling.
    • It’s durable, but it doesn’t last forever.
    • Abrasion, dirt, oils, etc. will eventually wear it off or mask it.
  • When this happens, water no longer beads up. It soaks into the fibers, fills the spaces between threads and interferes with breathability. This is referred to as “wetting out” of the fabric.

What you can do about it:

    • First step – clean the garment. Household detergents leave residues that interfere with DWR performance. Use a product, like ReviveX Synthetic Fabric Cleaner or Nikwax Tech Wash, that’s specially formulated to clean these high-tech garments.

      Read instructions on the cleaner bottle carefully, and follow directions for best results. Wash the garment in warm water and rinse thoroughly. If it’s just dirt and other contaminants that are masking the DWR, this is likely all that’s needed to reactivate the water repellency.
    • Second step – after the garment is dry, spray or sprinkle a bit of water on it. If the water beads up, the DWR is back on the job and you’re golden. If not…
    • Third step – reapply DWR treatment to the fabric. For most watersports apparel you need a specific type of DWR retreatment product. Many DWR renewal products require you to heat the treated garment in a clothes dryer to “set” the DWR. With our gear that has latex and neoprene in it, that level of heat is a No-No.

      You need to use a product like 303 High Tech Fabric Guard, Gear Aid ReviveX Spray-On Water Repellent, Nikwax Spray-On Waterproofing or Nikwax Wash-In Waterproofing that doesn't require high heat to activate the DWR. Follow instructions carefully for best results.
    • Now your garment is shedding water and breathing like a champ again.
