All prices are in Canadian Dollars (CAD). We ship to most countries internationally, please check your shipping options at the Checkout page for more details. Shipping and handling fees will be auto-calculated during checkout!
We make every effort to get stuff out to you as quickly and affordably as possible! However, we aren't a big ticket store and do our best with a very small team.
Your order will typically be shipped within 2-3 business days from when you place it. There will be variable shipment times, couriers and costs based off of where you live in the world, and how large your order is. Occasionally during sale periods or holidays, we will receive a larger than volume of orders causing some delays in the shipment of your package. Shipping costs are automatically calculated at checkout, but if we discover drastic differences between what is calculated, and how much the actual cost is, we will make every effort to refund you the difference.
We highly recommend you select the "Recommended Shipping Option" if it becomes available, which we have currently made available for the United States, United Kingdom, Australia/New Zealand, Germany, Japan, and Austria. This option is often the cheapest and most efficient for international shipping as it is provided via our partnership with Ascendia and Swiss Post. If your country is not currently available, please contact us at [email protected] and we will see if we can revise your shipping rate. We additionally offer shipping options via CanadaPost (via EMS if outside of Canada) and DHL.
Orders made later in the week, or during the weekend may not be processed until the following week as most international couriers are not available during the weekend. International customers outside Canada or the USA may be charged additional customs or import fees. If an international DHL shipment is far more expensive that we initially projected, we will ship your package via a comparable service which will be reflected when you receive tracking information.
Shipping costs may be reduced at the discretion of Fireforce Ventures on a case by case basis (ie. local deliveries in Calgary, merged orders, international DHL orders). Once a tracking number has been provided for your order, your order will be shipped to the address that you have listed.
Items under a certain weight (ie. lighter objects, morale patches, etc.) may be shipped via an untracked envelope or small parcel. If you selected a "No-Tracking" option, you will receive automatically number which may be marked as a tracking number. This is not a tracking number, this is a transaction number. Expect anywhere from 2-4 weeks added from your shipping time if that is the case if within Canada or the United States. If you are placing an order for a small packet internationally outside of Canada or the United States, please expect a longer delivery time to take up to 6-8 weeks.
Fireforce Ventures will compensate you in full for return shipping costs should a product by improperly shipped, and will ensure that the exact product you ordered is shipped to you as quickly as possible - even at our expense if applicable. Despite our best efforts, we carry almost 500+ products in many different variations and mistakes (though uncommon) have happened in the past. If incorrect products are shipped to you, we will make every effort to ensure that the situation is rectified as quickly as possible. Fireforce Ventures employees are held to a very high standard in regards to shipping out your order. Your package should arrive in full, packed effectively and with an included invoice signed by the employee who packed your order. All products should arrive in good order, with most apparel products saran wrapped and labelled as they are secured in the shipping envelope, poly-bag, or box. Feel free to make special requests on the comment section of your order and we will make every effort to fulfill it when your order is shipped out.
We make many efforts to ensure that our inventory is fully up to date, but inventory errors do happen. Backorders are not common, as we process almost 99% of our orders in full within 1-3 business days at our current rate of packaging orders. This includes all your products packed accurately and a completed tracking number provided. However, in the event your order includes a backordered product, there may be an additional delay of up to a week before you are contacted as we will make exhaustive efforts to confirm a backordered product. We will then advise you on options of partial shipments, full refunds, or an estimated wait time for the backordered product via email. You can email us at any time if there are additional delays with your order at [email protected].
Fireforce Ventures defines "military surplus" or "milsurp" explicitly as used apparel or equipment, that has be surplused out by a national military. We do not consider military apparel or equipment that was manufactured but never actually issued out by a national military (e.g new South African Defence Force Shirts) to be military surplus.
All military surplus products are sold as is, and may be in various states and conditions depending on the environment it was previously used in.
Items listed "Supergrade" are generally in new or like new condition, and may feature:
- Minty fresh "laundry" smell
- Original packaging
- Original and unworn labeling or tags
- Extremely light evidence of previous washes/wear
Items listed as "Grade 1" are in serviceable condition, but may have indication of prior use. Particularly good condition Grade 1 products, will be indicated as "Grade 1+". Features of Grade 1 items include:
- Musky "mothball" odour
- Colour fade within reason
- Loose threads
- Small stains
- Pen markings w/ service numbers/names
- Thread burn marks
- Irregular stitching
- Evidence of repairs
- Small holes, or tears under 0.25" in size
Items listed as "Grade 2" are generally in poor condition. Grade 2 items are graded accordingly, and considered "final sale". No exchanges or returns will be entertained with any Grade 2 items. They will have significant flaws to include:
- Extremely strong musky "mothball" odour
- Significant colour fade and wear
- Large holes and tears over 0.25" in size
- Missing or damaged buttons/zippers
- Permanent and unappealing staining
We do not carry any Grade 3 "scrap" or "battle damaged" items for public resale, everything we deem "military surplus" is always completely usable, or salvageable at the very least. Items that are properly graded, and deemed to not be defective, are not eligible for shipping compensation if returned or exchanged.
Order cancellations should be requested to us at [email protected] within 12 hours of your purchase unless otherwise stated in the product terms. We will refund you in full if you make the request if it is in keeping with the purchase terms. If your order is not cancelled within this time frame, we will have to process your inquiry as a return as your product will likely have been prepared for shipment and dispatched. To be eligible for a refund for a cancelled order, the product must be returned to us at your expense. We request that customers do not initiate credit card chargebacks without first contacting us as we make extra efforts to honour every cancellation request. If a credit card chargeback attempt be made, we reserve the right to despite it and halt shipment on your order. If the product was already shipped by the time we received a decision on a credit card chargeback dispute, we reserve the right to invoice you for the full purchase order price.
Please do not return products to Fireforce Ventures before first contacting us at [email protected]. Returns will only be processed if we are contacted via email within 30 days of your purchase. To be eligible for a return, your item must be unused and in the same condition that you received it. It must also be in the original packaging if applicable. For products identified as military surplus, it should be returned in the same condition that the product was received. We cannot process returns unless the physical product shipped to you has been returned. We try to process returns as quickly as possible, but there may be delays of up to 2 weeks as we review the circumstances of each individual case as thoroughly as possible. Please check your email for correspondence before you return any packages to us to prevent any processing issues. To complete your return, we require a receipt or proof of purchase (ie. invoice number/bank statement). Exceptions can be made on a case by case basis, especially if your order has taken additional time to arrive due to slower international shipping. There are certain situations where only partial refunds are granted:
- Evidence of wear, ripped tags, or open packaging if the product is new or unissued military surplus.
- Any item not in its original condition, is damaged or missing parts for reasons not due to our error.
- Any items that were sized improperly by customer error (this would become an exchange)
- Any item that is returned more than 30 days after delivery.
You will be responsible for shipping your own item for returns, but Fireforce Ventures will not compensate you for shipping costs unless an error was determined to have been made on our end. Any food products, Grade 2 military surplus items, supergrade/new condition underwear and closeout/clearance products are not eligible for returns.
If you need to initiate an exchange, send us an email at [email protected], we will provide you with a mailing address to send the item you need to exchange. We may request additional information and determine compensation on a case by case basis. We cannot process exchanges unless the a product has first been returned to us. Please provide a dispatch an order with a tracking or transaction number within 30 days of our email acknowledgement that we can provide a refund. We can only guarantee products are held in reserve for requested exchanges for 30 days, unless there are delays caused by shipping couriers. Once your exchange is received and inspected, we will send you an email to notify you that we have received your returned item.
Depending on where you live, the time it may take for your exchanged product to reach you, may vary. You will be responsible for shipping your own item for returns, but Fireforce Ventures will not compensate you for shipping costs. Exceptions are made in the case of an incorrect or defective product being shipped, in which we may ship you the correct product free of charge. In this case, it would be completely circumstantial based on availability and shipping conditions. If you are approved, then your refund will be processed, and a credit will automatically be applied to your credit card or original method of payment, within a certain amount of days depending on your bank.
Late or missing refunds
If you haven’t received a refund yet, first check your bank account again. After this, contact your credit card company, it may take some time before your refund is officially posted.
Please be patient as there is often some processing time before a refund is posted, sometimes taking up to 2 weeks in our experience.
If you’ve done all of this and you still have not received your refund yet, please contact us at [email protected].
Invoices may be sent to you by Fireforce Ventures via a payment processor with attached invoice information about the details of what is owed. It is the responsibility to pay invoices in the time allotted, which will be agreed upon before the invoice is sent. We will make every effort to accommodate for any invoice revisions or late payments. Additionally, we will make every effort to contact you either via email or your listed phone number about invoices owed. However, if you invoice is not paid within the timeframe and late payment requests are not honored, we reserve the right to forward the invoice to a 3rd party collection agency.
As pre-order products are not physically in our possession, they sometimes not subject to the same shipment terms as regular orders.
At Fireforce Ventures, we define any product that we have stocked on this webstore but is not physically ready to ship as a "pre-order". We make every effort to communicate as much information as possible including payment/shipment terms for any products identified as a pre-order. Buy purchasing a pre-order from Fireforce Ventures, you consent to all of the associated sales terms with the associated product(s) including but not limited to cancellation policies, size changes, exchange requests, and the estimated time of delivery. In the interests of transparency, we will always make every effort to communicate as much information as possible about a pre-order product.
If a pre-order product is indicated as "out of stock" or "coming soon", that means we don't have it on hand or have sold out. Each pre-order product is generally very unique and requires special attention from us. The intensive production needs and capital required for each pre-order product prevent us from giving any ETAs on when pre-orders will be available. Please don't get offended if we send you to read this excerpt if you ask the question, we literally get hundreds of these messages/emails and have only one person answering. We generally know as much as you do given our constant supply chain struggles. If you want the inside scoop, we recommend checking out our Buyer's Club.
