I have ordered a few things from Backcountry and from their clearance site Steep and Cheap, returns are easy and I have never had a bad experience ordering from either site.

Good experience with the company. Always looked at those remixes and thought their lifetime return policy on a creek boat didn't make much sense but...

They're slow to ship, but I've had good luck with them.

I shop often. I wish they had more selection however. I haven't used their generous return policy but am glad to know if something is a piece of shit that they will stand behind it

FYI about Backcountry.com

Just FYI,

I'm not going to bash bc.com, because obviously they have many satisfied custies and a good business model. But you may want to understand who you are doing business with.

Backcountry.com is owned by Liberty Media corp, One of the largest media conglomerates in the world. Backcountry.com - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Majority stockholder of Liberty Media is John Malone. Malone is a Colorado resident and philanthropist, and is also the largest individual landowner in the USA (2,100,000 acres). He is also a board member of the Cato institute, a libertarian think tank founded by one of the Koch brothers. His net worth is north of $6 Billion.

If you want your money to go a little farther in your community...find a local business to support
