Shipping & Delivery
The Backcountry Edge fulfillment team is committed to excellence. You can count on them to process your order and get your gear in-transit to you as quickly as possible.
2016 Holiday Shipping Deadlines
Backcountry Edge is committed to shipping your order in a timely manner. As always, orders received by 2 PM Eastern Standard Time (EST) M-F are packed and shipped the same business day. However, during the holiday season delivery services like FedEx, UPS and USPS experience staggering volumes that can lead to delays. Plus, weather-related delays are always a possibility.
*Keep in mind that the UPS Service Guarantee is suspended for UPS Ground and UPS Standard packages picked up or scheduled for delivery between Dec. 18 and Dec. 24, 2016. For further details, visit ups.com. **Where available. 2nd Day Air is not available to zip codes within our UPS Ground one-day delivery zone (much of the mid-Atlantic region). In these cases, UPS Ground is faster than 2nd Day Air. UPS 3 Day Select is not available to delivery zones where UPS Ground is faster.
We offer free standard shipping on all product orders over $50 which ship to street addresses within the lower 48 states. The free shipping method will be the least costly of either UPS Ground Service (1-6 business days delivery) or US Mail Priority Mail (1-4 business days delivery).
If you prefer the alternate service that is not the least costly, you can select that service at checkout.
Free shipping does not apply to shipments to PO boxes, product order totals less than $50 after discounts, or to shipments outside the lower 48 states.

Other Shipping Options
Product Totals Less Than $50 to the Lower 48 States: Shipping charges are customized based on your delivery address and the weights/dimensions of the items in your order.
Express Shipping: We offer several express shipping options. If available to your address, these options and charges will be displayed at checkout. The charges are customized based on your delivery address, and the weights and dimensions of the items in your order. We do not mark up express shipping charges; instead we pass along our best volume discount to our customers.
Alaska and Hawaii: At checkout, you will be given a list of the available shipping options to your address. The charges are customized based on the weights and dimensions of the items in your order.
PO Boxes: We ship to PO Boxes via US Postal Service Priority Mail. The charges are customized based on the weights and dimensions of the items in your order. Please select the "Priority Mail" shipping method at checkout.
APO/FPO Addresses: We ship to APO/FPO addresses via insured Priority Mail. The shipping charges displayed at checkout are based on the weights and dimensions of the items in your order. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee the delivery time to military addresses. It takes 1-3 days for Priority Mail to arrive at the primary military post office. From there, the package is under the control of the military mail system. Your order should arrive in about the same amount of time as other packages from the U.S. (in most cases 7-14 days). The actual transit time depends on where you are stationed.
