From time to time we sell out of particular items.

SIZING & PRODUCT CARE

Sizing

Each garment has its own sizing guide. There is no empirical definition of Small, Medium, Large etc and metric and imperial measurements are for specific parts of the garment only. For example a 42” jacket measures around the chest but not the length of the body or arms. Helmet sizing is absolutely critical. We publish the manufacturers’ size guides. These do not account for shell shape. Some are round, some oval, some sit high, some are low profile.

We are happy to exchange an item if the wrong size is ordered but require that the customer pays for return carriage charges. 

With all this in mind we recommend visiting our shop to try any item on.

 

Product Care

Products come with care instructions on either packaged documentation or an attached label. They are also often available on the manufacturers’ website.

Please read the care instructions before cleaning or making repairs.  Technical materials are used in all of the products we supply. Failure to follow the care instructions may invalidate the warranty. For example a Teflon treated garment will lose the water proofing coating if washed at a high temperature.
