How will I know when to make my final payment?
You will get an email. The site will also be updated with the details when it is time. Once you have been notified you will have 5 days to pick your pack and make your final payment. Please understand we cannot hold packs based on reservations. Only the final payment secures your pack and delivery.
Explain more about the perks?
The perks program started as a way to say thank you and off-set the long wait times during the first production run. Due to the success of this program, limited time perks will be included with in-stock packs as well as future reservations. Perks points work like gift cards and can be used to unlock any of the items from our Cargo Accessory line.
Can I switch and get the other pack instead?
Only if you contacted us prior and we edited your original order. Please proceed with the pack of your choice as part of your final payment. If you did not contact us prior please do not switch over from one pack to another.

Bugs on the site and during checkout
It's easy to get confused and add one too many items to your cart by accident. The system has some checks and balances built in but can easily be tricked / confused. If you have too many items (ie.. hip belts in your order, we will simply edit the order on the backend and the system will send out a notification.
I have more than 1 pack reserved
First, thank you, you are awesome :). Second, you will need to pay for each pack separately, this means making x2 separate payments due to limitations with the shopify app.
Of note: We do have a shipping rate for "two packs in a box" and will refund you the difference on the backend. Please use the same order number if you reserved x2 packs initially. Please use the order numbers for each order if you reserved separately.
How much does shipping cost?
Shipping has gotten super expensive. Please keep in mind the size and weight of the pack and box. It is an expensive item to ship and the amounts we charge are still below our costs. Rates are subject to change.
USA: FedEx Ground $15
Rest of the World: $55+USD
USAGE & LIABILITY
Are the packs waterproof?
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.
How does the lifetime guarantee work?
Your Atlas Pack comes with a lifetime guarantee. We stand behind our packs and service unconditionally and will repair or replace defective packs at no cost.
Our lifetime warranty covers manufacturers defects as well as issues that make your pack unusable or to no longer function as designed.
Things that are not included in the warranty include but are not limited to; rips, scrapes and tears, water and moisture damage, stains, blemishes, normal wear and tear, failure due to misuse, or lack of care or just doing something stupid.
PS: If you ever decide to sell your Atlas Pack, tell the new owner the warranty stays with the pack.

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMER BUYING FROM OUTSIDE THE USA
Does Atlas Packs really offer import duty refunds?
Yes! Atlas Packs is the only company that offers Import Duty Refunds. All you need to do is send a copy of the full invoice to Pro Support.
The Import Duty refund is designed to cover the costs of importing the pack. It does not cover VAT. Only duty and the maximum refund is limited to 5% of your purchase price.
This means, if you paid $425.00 for your pack, we will refund up to $21.25USD. This and all offers are subject to change.
How much is VAT & DUTY?
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.
What happens if I do not pay the VAT / DUTY?
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).
Why does Atlas Packs not collect these fee at time of purchase?
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.
How does the collection of VAT & DUTY work?
Your local FedEx will contact you regarding how to pay. They will invoice you either before or after delivery. To be clear... You are agreeing to accept delivery of your pack and pay FedEx for the DUTY and VAT.
What if I ship to a USA address, is there still sales tax?
It depends. If you visit or live in the United States, sales tax is based on your shipping address. When applicable, the sales tax amount is included in the total paid to Atlas Packs. Atlas Packs then pays this amount to the local tax authorities.
