All products must be returned in the manufacturer's original packaging, clean and with a complete description of the problem and a copy of the original invoice.  Items that have been worn, washed, used, mistreated or otherwise abused cannot be returned and may be mailed back to the customer. PPE products such as masks, gowns and gloves are NOT returnable.
  2. Items being returned for repair must be cleaned, disinfected and free of any potential health hazards prior to being shipped back.
  3. We repair most nylon/Cordura cases and bags from any manufacturer.  Repair charges are based on the type of damage and repairs required.    NOTE:  For warranty repair on some products, you may be required to send the product back to the original manufacturer.
  4. In most cases, custom orders are non-refundable.  However, a Restocking Fee of 20% is applied to custom orders or special orders being returned that we have approved in certain circumstances.  We reserve the right to apply a restocking fee on returns that exceed the standard 30-day return policy and inspect the product for damages, use prior to return, missing parts, etc.

Absolutely no returns will be accepted COD and will be returned the customer.  We do recommend a courier, like Canada Post, where a tracking number is provided.  It is the customers' responsibility to ensure the return in case it is lost in transit.  Sands Canada is not responsible for lost packages by the mail/courier company. In the case of exchanges were Sands Canada did not commit an error with the order, shipping of the exchanged product(s) is to be paid by the customer.
