Other Shipping info.
Typically Atlas Packs offers lower rates for international shipping but this is not possible at the moment due to increasing costs. We are looking forward to lowering our shipping rates back to our flat rate options as soon as possible. Thank you for your understanding.
**Please know FedEx may charge an additional $12 fee for electronic
customs clearance. This fee helps gets your pack to you much sooner but
does increase the cost.
The VAT is based on where you live and is a standard rate.
The IMPORT DUTY rates are based on your country/province and range from zero to more than 25% in some parts of the world. Most countries only charge around 5% of the total purchase price.
There is no way for Atlas Packs to collect these funds. International
customers are responsible for the payment of any and all fees, tax, VAT and Import Duty charges. Unlike USA customers, none of these fees are included in the totals you pay to Atlas Packs.
It is your responsibility to pay your own taxes. Do not refuse shipment because you do not want to pay the VAT. Atlas Packs does not accept returns if the taxes have not been paid.
If you refuse shipment then FedEx adds penalty fees and very high return shipping costs. As an example: If you live in the EU / UK and do not accept delivery, FedEx will charge more than $350 to return the shipment and these costs are your responsibility.
These extra fees are easily avoidable. Simply accept delivery and contact Pro Support that you want to make a return. This makes the return process much easier for everyone.
Abandoned / refused shipments are subject to a 15% restocking fee plus the cost of all shipping charges (outbound and return).

Usage & Liability

No, Atlas Packs does not make waterproof packs.
Here is what you can expect in terms of protection from the elements. The outer shell is made of very light and strong rip-stop material with a x2 durable water repellent coating.
Additionally, a raincover with welded seams is included with the purchase of your pack and provides for excellent coverage.
Combined, the x2 durable water repellent coating and the raincover will keep your camera gear safe and dry. However, you can fully expect some moisture to work its way into your pack under certain conditions and environments.
Now that I have made you aware, if you are a heavy sweater, if you take the pack into very humid environments, if decide to run through a bunch of waterfalls or spend hours walking through the
rain, etc, be proactive don't throw away the moisture packets that come with your pack.
Save them and drop a few in the stretch pocket on the inside backpanel and a few in the key fob pocket.
