All orders are shipped within 48 hours Monday - Friday 8:30 am - 5pm


We use the following carriers to deliver our orders:



Order Tracking

If a tracking # is provided by the shipping carrier, we will update your order with the tracking information. Please note that some orders using 1st Class USPS mail will not have tracking numbers.

Shipping Rates

Light Hiking Gear offers free shipping for all orders being shipped to U.S. addresses. For foreign shipments, the rate charged for the shipping of your order is based on the weight of your products, package size and your location. Before the final checkout page you will be shown what the cost of shipping will be, and you will have a chance to cancel your order.

FOB Origin

All items are sent FOB origin, meaning that the sale is considered complete and the buyer owns the goods as soon as the product leaves Light Hiking Gear's shipping dock or is delivered to the carrier, and thus the buyer of the goods is responsible for any liability during transport/delivery, including damage, loss or theft.

Back Orders

If an item goes on back order we will ship you the part of your order that is in stock. When the item becomes available we will ship you the rest of your order. You will not be charged any additional shipping and handling for the second shipment.
