Questions about an Adventure? We may have the answer in our Adventures FAQs.
What is The Clymb?
The Clymb provides free insider access to the best gear and apparel from premium outdoor and active-lifestyle brands. If you hike, run, ride, paddle, race, or ski, and if you're inspired by the great outdoors, you're going to love being part of our community. We are based in Portland, Oregon and we were founded in 2009 by a team of outdoor-industry veterans.
How does The Clymb offer such low prices?
Our team of industry experts negotiates the best prices on 100% authentic gear from premium brands. We determine pricing based on volume of available inventory. Conventional retailers purchase inventory months in advance, and then pay for warehousing, advertising, and staff. The Clymb's unique model allows for us to pick up last-minutes deals and get them to you quickly and efficiently

How do I re-subscribe to emails?
Can I modify an existing order?
Some existing orders can be modified. Please call 1 877-464-6936 so that we can help you out.
An item I had in my cart sold out before I had time to buy it. What gives?
We are a flash-based sales site, which means our inventory is often limited. Popular items can sell very quickly especially during the holidays. Placing an item your cart doesn't place it on hold. If you wait until you've finished loading your cart to buy everything at once you may discover that one of the items has sold out. The only way to guarantee you get an item is to purchase it immediately. We are continually updating and improving the shopping and browsing experience at The Clymb to make it the best experience possible for our members.
What if an item is sold out?
The Clymb offers flash sales that typically last for 72 hours. Some items sell quickly, and when they're gone, they're gone. Logging into your account at 8am Pacific on the day of the sale is your best bet to find the items you want.
Why am I receiving an error message at checkout?
There are a few reasons you may have received an error message at checkout. The easiest way to correct this is to double check that you entered all of your billing information correctly, and that the information you entered corresponds exactly with the billing information at your bank. Any discrepancy will prevent the transaction from being accepted by the system. The most common errors we see are with the billing ZIP code and CCV code. If everything looks right, and you're using saved billing information, try re-entering your current credit card information. Still having problems?
Give 1 877-464-6936 a call and we'll get to the bottom of this.
Do you offer expedited shipping?
Certain items are eligible for expedited shipping. If the option is available, you will have a drop-down menu at checkout. We'll let you know the expected delivery date of your order once you have selected your shipping method.*
*The Clymb is not responsible for shipping delays that are outside of our control. Deliveries to certain rural areas, APOs, and FPOs may take longer to arrive than estimated.
Do you offer free shipping?
We will waive standard shipping charges if you purchase a piece of Clymb-branded merchandise.
Can items from the same order ship to different addresses?
Unfortunately, we cannot ship items from a single order to multiple addresses. If you need to ship items to multiple addresses, you will need to make multiple orders.
Can I re-route a package that has already shipped?
In most cases this is not possible. Please contact our Member Support team immediately if you need to make changes. You can reach us at 1 877-464-6936.
What if my package doesn't show up in time, or is the incorrect item?
If your package doesn't arrive on the expected delivery date, or your package arrives with something you did not order inside, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org immediately. We will do our best to resolve the situation just as soon as possible.
How do I purchase a gift certificate?
At The Clymb, we call gift cards "gift certificates." Each gift certificate has a unique code. The gift recipient simply types the code in on their account page (*If they're not already a member, they'll need to sign up) or at checkout and the credit will be immediately applied to their account. Quick, easy, and no pesky plastic cards to hold onto!
Buy gift certificates the same way you would any other product on The Clymb. We will deliver the certificate in the form of a PDF attachment to your order confirmation email. You can then either print the certificate or send it to the recipient of your choice as an email attachment.
How do I redeem my gift certificate?
Congratulations! You are one step closer to some new gear. Redeeming your gift certificate is easy. If you're not already a member, you'll need to sign up. Don't worry. It's quick and free. Click on "My Cart." Enter the code on your gift certificate into the "Have a promotion code?" field. All of your credit will automatically be applied to your account, where it will sit forever, until you decide to use it, which can be immediately.
If I buy someone a gift on The Clymb, can they return it?
They sure can. Have the gift recipient contact email@example.com and we will get them all set up. Our (standard return policy)[/return_policy] applies to all shipments. All of our packages ship with a gift receipt.
Does The Clymb provide gift-wrapping/special messaging?
We do not offer gift-wrapping or special-messaging services. However, all of our packages ship with a gift receipt.

There is an estimated delivery date for each item featured on The Clymb. You can find the estimated delivery date in your cart at checkout or below the product description on the product page. If you have multiple items in your cart, rely on the item with the latest expected delivery date.
Why do some items take longer to ship than others?
Items have different delivery dates because they do not all originate from the same warehouse. For many of the items we ship to you, we are coordinating shipment with the product's vendor. Different vendors operate on different timeframes and we therefore do not have a standardized shipment timeframe for each of our items.
How can I track my order?

Then click the "My Orders" tab and locate the product you would like to track. Click the "Details" button to find your tracking number.

Order cancelations are considered on a case-by-case basis depending on where the order is in its delivery process. Since cancelling orders is time sensitive, please contact 1 888-640-1528 by telephone ASAP.
Can I change my shipping info after I've placed my order?
It is sometimes possible for us to change your shipping information after you've placed an order. Call our Member Support representatives immediately to find out if we can make the switch before your package ships. You can reach us at 1 877-464-6936.
Do you ship internationally?
At this point in time, The Clymb does not ship outside the United States.
How to make a return
Returning products to The Clymb is easy. First, submit your return in the Order History portion of our website. To do this, click on "My Account" at the top of any page. Next, click on "My Orders." Choose the corresponding order number and click on the "details" button directly below that number. Now you can press, "INITIATE A RETURN." Locate the item(s) you wish to return and use the dropdown menu to select the reason for your return. Click "NEXT STEP." On the next screen, double-check to make sure you selected the correct item(s) to be returned. Click on "SUBMIT RETURN AND PRINT LABEL."
What is your return policy?
We accept returns on most apparel, gear, and footwear. All non-returnable items are clearly marked on the product and checkout pages. We must receive your return within 30 days of the date we shipped it to you. All returned items must be unused, unworn, and with the original product tags. Please ship your return back to us without damaging the original packaging. For instance, if you order a pair of shoes, do not use that shoebox as the shipping box. Instead, ship the shoebox in an additional box so as not to damage the original packaging. You will receive Clymb credit for your returned items.
Are there any items that I can't return?
Due to safety concerns, some items are not eligible for return. Any item that is not returnable is listed as such on the product page and in your shopping cart.
Will you provide a shipping label for my return?
We will provide you with a pre-paid shipping label for your convenience. $6.99 will be deducted from your refund to cover the cost of shipping.
When will I receive my credit?
You will receive your credit 5-7 business days after we receive your return at our warehouse. Once your credit has been issued, we will notify you via email.
What if I receive the wrong product?
If you receive the wrong product please contact firstname.lastname@example.org immediately.
Can I make an exchange?
We offer premium merchandise at outstanding prices. Our sale events are of limited duration and once an event closes, merchandise is no longer available. Therefore we cannot offer exchanges on merchandise sold. If you are not satisfied with your purchase, you may return eligible merchandise for a store credit, which you can then apply toward a future purchase.
Can I return an item purchased with a promotion or discount?
Yes- If a promotional offer was used when purchasing an item that you need to return, the amount credited to you will be for the amount paid at the time of purchase, rather than the original selling price. Any promotional credit used will not be reinstated to your Clymb account when an item is returned.
Credits and Promotions
What is Clymb credit?
You can use Clymb credit to buy merchandise on The Clymb. There are many ways to get it. We issue Clymb credit for merchandise returns, and also award Clymb credit for promotions and contests. If you invite a friend to join The Clymb, you'll receive Clymb credit once they make a first purchase of $25 or more. Clymb credit can be used toward your purchases, but not your shipping charges. Clymb credit that is issued for merchandise returns will never expire. Clymb credit issued for a promotion or issued by Member Support will expire after 12 months. Certain promotional credits are only valid for a short time. Their expiration date will be clearly communicated at the time of the award. Clymb credit cannot be applied towards the purchase of Gear Certificates.
Will my Clymb credit expire?
Clymb credit that is received for merchandise return has no expiration date. Clymb credit earned by inviting your friends to join is valid for 12 months after you receive it—if you can hold onto it for that long. Clymb credit cannot be applied towards the purchase of Gift Certificates or Clymb Adventures.
How do I use my Clymb credit?
Your Clymb credit will automatically be applied to your order at checkout. Clymb credit does not cover shipping charges so even if you have enough to cover the cost of your purchase, you will still have to enter your credit card information to pay for shipping. Clymb credit cannot be applied towards the purchase of Gear Certificates or Clymb Adventures.
Can I combine multiple promotional codes and/or credits?
Sorry. Individual promotional codes and credits cannot be combined with existing promotional codes and credits or expired offers.
Why won't my promotional code work with certain items?
Promotional codes and credits you may receive will work with a majority of the items featured on our site. However, they can exclude certain purchases. These purchases include but are not limited to:
- Adventures, unless otherwise stated
- Shipping & handling, unless otherwise stated
- Gift certificates
Refer A Friend
How do I refer a friend?
You can invite your friends to join The Clymb a couple of ways. Within your account, you'll find a tab that says (Invite Friends)[/invitations/new]. Click on that tab to find a unique, personal invite link. You can share that link through your social networks, or email it to whomever you choose. You can also send the link directly from that page by entering your friends' email addresses in the box provided and clicking "SEND." After your friends join, encourage them to shop and make a first purchase of $25 or more. Once that order ships, we'll credit your account. Clymb credits earned by inviting friends to join are valid for 12 months after you receive them—if you can hold onto them for that long.
What do you mean by "once they make a first purchase of $25 or more"?
In order to receive a credit, the friend that you invited must make a purchase of $25 or more on their first order. The $25 purchase made by the invited friend must include merchandise or adventures only. The $25 purchase does not include gift certificates or shipping and handling charges. This promotion only applies to first-time orders, so in the case that they do not purchase $25 or more on their first order, no credit will be awarded to your account. This promotion does not apply to any order placed after the first-time purchase.
When will I receive my credit?
You will receive the appropriate credit in your account as soon as your friends order leaves our warehouse. Their first-time purchase must exceed $25 for you to receive a credit. The amount of the credit received will reflect the amount that is being offered on our site at the time of their order.
