Not all items may be eligible for discount with your promotional code; eligibility varies by style and brand and is subject to change at any time. Certain brands have elected not to participate in promotional offers; these include, but are not limited to: Barbour®, YETI®, Dubarry® of Ireland, Leatherman®, and Brackish. Promotional offers do expire and cannot be used towards prior purchases.

Retail pricing on items remain consistent across Orvis Retail Stores, Catalog and Website. On occasion, however, Orvis retail stores, website, and catalog may each have their own sale pricing based on inventory availability.

If the price of an item is reduced is reduced within 14 days of purchase, with proof of purchase we can help you receive a one-time price adjustment in the form of an Orvis Gift Card. Items within the online Tent Sale do not qualify for price adjustments.

Orvis is partnered with more than 400 dealers nationwide, who each manage their own pricing and sale efforts. Price change/adjustment requests for purchases originating at a dealership are not honored by Orvis directly. Please contact the dealer for returns or price adjustments.

Orvis is registered to do business and required to collect and pay sales tax on merchandise, and shipping and handling in all states that currently charge a sales tax. We do not charge sales tax on orders shipped to Alaska, Delaware, Montana, New Hampshire, and Oregon. We charge tax on merchandise only in Idaho, Massachusetts, Oklahoma, and Wyoming. Every state has its own laws and regulations regarding online commerce and taxation, and Orvis must collect all required taxes accordingly.

No, Gift Cards are issued for the original purchase amount. Additional balance amounts cannot be added to the card, but if you want a Gift Card for an additional amount, you’re welcome to order a new Gift Card.

Unfortunately, we’re unable to replace lost or stolen Gift Cards, and this is noted on each Gift Card. Please feel free to contact Orvis Customer Service and we’ll be happy to review the situation with you to see how we can help.

That's no problem at all! Please contact our customer service team and we will be happy to get that sent back out for you!

Start a return or refund

All merchandise purchased from Orvis is covered by our Great Catch Guarantee—100% customer satisfaction has been our commitment since 1856. If you aren’t happy with a product or service, we want to know about it and make it right. For more details, please visit our Returns page.

As long as a proof of purchase is provided, we will issue a full refund back to the original method of payment, minus any shipping and/or return label fees. For a return without proof of purchase, the credit will be in the form of an Orvis Gift Card.

Refunds for things like shipping fees or coupons added after the purchase take 3-5 business days but refunds for returned merchandise take 2-3 weeks and may take up to 4 during peak returns season.

Complete the Orvis Return and Exchange Form, making sure to check the box at the top of the form entitled “I am returning a gift”—this will ensure that the purchaser isn’t notified that you’ve made the return. If you have a gift receipt, please include that with your return. Gift returns will be credited in the form of an Orvis Gift Card.

Returns should be made to the dealer or partner where the purchase originated. If you are unable to return the item(s) to the place of purchase, refer to the above guidelines for returns and we’ll be glad to help you.
