Products: Products are sold singularly unless otherwise stated. Every effort is made to ensure the colours depicted on the site match as closely as possible those of the actual product. Due to technical limitations, some colours may vary.

Care: Store your equipment in a dry, dark, and cool place, away from any bright light, strong fumes, dampness or heat. An ideal storage temperature is 10-20 degrees C. Make sure your equipment is fully dried inside and out before storing away. If you leave any garments in your kit bag for a few days they will go mouldy and lose their performance. If your garment begins to stink, wash it with Grangers 30 degree cleaner and hang to drip dry. High areas of wear and tear such as the arm pits or your boat carrying shoulder may need some running repairs. Treat such areas with Aquasure Seamgrip adhesive. From time to time reproof the garment’s outer fabric with Grangers XT Proofer. Aquasure and Grangers products are available from good dealers or on the Peak UK website

TIZIPS & Suits: Visually inspect your suit and pant zips from time to time for any dirt or grit in the teeth as this will affect the seal. Clean the zip using an old soft toothbrush and fresh water, then relube it before every use with TIZIP lube. Dry one piece suits both inside and out before storage and store with zips fully open.

Latex/Neoprene Seals: To keep the seals in good shape, make sure you do not pull your garment on or off against them. Stretch each seal open when fitting and removing. If you drag the seals on and off they will fail and the taping may pop off. Be warned!!! Latex seals are designed to be cut to fit. If they are too tight, cut them down carefully and evenly with small sharp scissors, taking care not to leave any nicks. Cut off a small amount at a time, remembering that the seals will stretch a little with use.

Warranty: Unless otherwise clearly stated, Peak UK garments are designed and guaranteed for performance canoe and kayaking only. Under normal use, Peak UK products are guaranteed for one year from the date of purchase against faults in manufacture and materials. Your customers receipt is the guarantee. Make sure you issue a receipt and keep details of the sale. Although Peak UK garments are made from top quality materials, using the best construction techniques available, they are not covered against excessive wear and tear, misuse, and over use. As a guide, a paddler who uses the garment two to three hours per week and looks after it well will get at least a years good use out of it. A professional, using it day in day out will need to replace the garment more often.

Peak UK garments will not keep users 100% dry. Some water may enter via the garment’s seals and openings. Condensation can build up inside garments even though its fabric is breathable. Breathability will help reduce condensation, but will not eliminate it, especially in damp and humid conditions. Due to the fragile nature of the materials used, breakage of zips, latex seals, neoprene seals and fabric socks are not covered by warranty. They can be replaced for a reasonable fee. If any item is modified by the customer, its warranty is invalid.

In the unlikely event of any problems, please return the item to Peak UK with a copy of your customer’s receipt and a completed returns form detailing the problem they are experiencing. The returns form is available on the Peak UK website: www.peakuk.com/service

Customers are responsible for the shipping costs of goods returned to Peak UK for warranty or repair.

If the item is not repairable a replacement or alternative will be offered. Where a replacement is not available, an account credit will be issued. Due to the nature of seam sealing adhesion on used and dirty fabric, repairs are not warrantied.
