We love our shelters and we hope you do too. If you are unsatisfied or have any questions regarding your Tarptent please do not hesitate to contact us. If the reason for return has anything to do with setup, we can most certainly help you correct the problem. We greatly value feedback from our customers and we commit to working with you to find the best shelter for your needs.

Our return policy is defined below:

  1. The purchaser of a Tarptent may return a new, unused Tarptent for a full refund, not including the original shipping charge, within 30 days of receipt if not satisfied.
  2. Returns involving more than one tent will incur a 10% restocking fee on all returned tents.
  3. A lightly used Tarptent shelter may be returned for a partial refund, to be determined apon examination, within 30 days of receipt if all of the following criteria are met:

    a. The Tarptent is in excellent condition and has no visible wear, dirt, hair, or smell.

    b. The Tarptent shelter is returned to Tarptent neatly folded and assembled in the original condition in which it was sent.

  4. All other returns requested within 30 days of receipt will be evaluated on a case by case basis. If a refund is issued, the amount refunded will depend on the condition of the returned shelter.
    Please contact us BEFORE sending.
  5. Tarptents seam-sealed with urethane or any product other than silicone (as per the Tarptent seam-seal instructions/video) will NOT be accepted for return. Tarptents seam-sealed by the customer will be evaluated for correct application prior to refund.
