Return and Refund

We have an easy return policy.

About Our Merchandise Return & Refund Policy -- If any item ordered from the website does not meet your expectations for a diving related application, you may return it; with the exception of a very few items clearly identified in our product description details as non-returnable. To return something you just send it back to us; your order number is your return authorization. The purchase price of merchandise returned in unused condition within 30 days of the date of delivery will be refunded to the original purchaser in the same form as the method of order payment. For merchandise returned in any other condition or after one month, the purchaser will be issued store merchandise credit.

Although not required, we suggest you Contact Us before making a return because in some cases we might be able to resolve your concerns without creating a return.

Return Shipping -- Carefully pack your return for shipment back to us and include a copy of your order or invoice. Please help us by making a brief note of the reason for your return on the order or invoice copy. For high value returns we recommend that you select a carrier that offers package tracking, insure your package for safe return, and declare the full value of the package so that you are completely protected if the shipment is lost or damaged in transit.


Refunds -- The purchase price of merchandise ordered from the website for a diving related application and returned in unused condition within 30 days of the date of delivery, will be refunded to the original purchaser in the same form as the method of order payment, or store merchandise credit if preferred.

Any defective item or incorrect shipment will be replaced at no shipping charge to you, otherwise our actual out-of-pocket shipping costs are not refunded. If items in an order originally shipped for free are returned and the order value after the return no longer qualifies for free shipping, then the refund amount will be reduced by our shipping costs. If the order is returned by the carrier as undeliverable or refused, then the refund amount will be reduced by both our outbound and return shipping costs.

If we collected sales tax at the time of the purchase, we will refund the tax as appropriate. However, if taxes and duties were paid to a third party such as a local government, re-delivery service, courier service, postal service, or customs house you must contact whomever you paid to request any potential refund of taxes and duties. We are not responsible for refunding any monies paid that we did not ourselves collect at time of purchase.

We will issue a refund as soon as we receive your return. Please note that packages returned as undeliverable or refused are typically handled by the carrier at a very low shipping priority, especially internationally, and our receipt of the package and thus your refund can be significantly delayed. When we are unable to retrieve the package, or the return shipping costs exceed the value of the contents, there is no refund.

Store Merchandise Credit -- For merchandise returned in any condition other than unused or after one month, the original purchaser will be issued store merchandise credit. The amount of the store merchandise credit will be determined by the sole discretion of Dive Gear Express. Merchandise credit may only be redeemed for store merchandise and can not be used to pay for sales taxes or shipping charges. Merchandise credit is not transferable and expires two years after date of issue. Merchandise credit has no cash value and cannot be redeemed for cash.

Returns & Refunds Disclaimer - Purchases for use in non-diving applications are not qualified for return or refund. We believe that repeated or excessive returns by a specific customer indicates, for whatever reason, we are unable to meet the ongoing expectations of that customer. In such circumstances we may reject future orders by that customer or only accept specific orders by that customer on the condition of no returns. In some circumstances of non-delivery claims, we may reject future orders for that customer or ship-to address.

About e-Commerce and Your Rights

In consideration for receipt of full payment, the offer of your order is accepted by Dive Gear Express upon our delivery of the ordered products.

Ordinary retail commerce in the US is regulated on the basis of that legal precedent, although electronic commerce is setting some new precedent. In e-commerce some of this may be relatively unfamiliar, especially with consumers new to buying online, so we'll try to explain further in our expanded article "How e‑Commerce Works in the US".
