MY ORDER

Can I cancel/ amend my order after I’ve placed it?

We’re unable to guarantee any amendments or cancellations to orders once they’ve been placed as our customer service team work on a 48 hour email response time, but we will try our best! If it’s not possible and you wish to return an unwanted order, you can do so on our returns portal. We cannot add or remove specific items within an order, nor can we change sizes.

My order is a gift, can I add a gift note and remove invoicing?
As standard, the invoices on all of our products have the costing element removed. Sadly we’re unable to offer gift notes at the moment, but it is something we are looking into.

The item I received is faulty – what do I do?
If you receive a faulty item, please email our Customer Service Team with your order number and a photo of the faulty product and we can advise on next steps.

I purchased an item on pre-order, when will it arrive?
You will find the estimated delivery time for your pre-order item on the product page. Please note that none of your order will be despatched until the pre-order items are available.

DELIVERY & RETURNS

My order hasn’t arrived, what should I do?
Please wait a week after you receive notification that your order has been dispatched before contacting us. You can track your order using the tracking details included with your order confirmation. It might also be worth checking with your neighbours.

Do you offer international shipping?
Yes we do

 

Do I have to pay tax on my order?
Orders being delivered within the European Union and internationally may attract import duty and local sales taxes. We advise these costs are checked prior to placing your order as the rules vary by country. The recipients (not the sender) will need to pay on receipt of the shipment - Anorak do not provide details, calculate or provide methods for these payments and they can not be pre-paid.

Can I return food/ sweets?
We’re unable to offer refunds for any food or confectionery items due to health and safety.

I have returned my item, but I haven’t received my refund yet.
We would politely ask customers to wait 21 days from returning the item for the refund to show in their account before contacting Customer Services. You can read more about our refund process on our Returns Portal here.

Can I make an exchange?
We’re unable to offer direct exchanges, but you can request credit instead of a refund when returning an order to us. Once credit has been issued, it cannot be reversed.

PRODUCT INFORMATION

Where can I find the size guide?
Sizing information can be found on the relevant product page. This is only a guide as every product is cut differently. If you have any further questions, just email our Customer Service Team, who will be able to offer a bit more guidance.

Are Anorak sleeping bags suitable for my young child?
We advise our sleeping bags are suitable for children aged six and above. We do not recommend young children to sleep in adult size sleeping bags because if the child wriggles down it can cause them distress and there is a risk of suffocation.

What tog ratings are our sleeping bags?
Our sleeping bags don’t carry an official tog rating, but we describe them as a leisure, spring summer sleeping bag – perfect for camping in warmer weather or cosy winter nights indoors on the sofa.

How can I care for my Anorak knitwear?
Anorak knitwear is made from wool, a material prone to pilling and bobbling. You can help prevent this by:

  • Washing the garment inside out on a gentle/ wool cycle, or hand wash if possible. The less friction it meets the less it will bobble.
  • Using a specialist detergent for wool or delicates which will coat the wool fibres and reduce static and friction. Never use bleach.
  • Not overloading your washing machine as this can damage the fibres, and washing with other similar items
  • Air drying not tumble drying as heat and friction will damage the fibres and cause pilling.
  • Using a pilling comb to remove any bobbles.

RESPONSIBLE ANORAK

How sustainable are Anorak products?
As a brand inspired by the great outdoors, we consider it our duty to reduce our impact on the environment and do whatever we can to help keep the outdoors great. You can read about our sustainability journey here.

Where do we manufacture our goods?
We are currently working with ethical and audited factories in China, India, Portugal, Turkey and here in the UK . We follow the Ethical Trade initiative when assessing our factories, which reviews the Labour standards, responsible recruitment and fair wage. It addresses Health and Safety, Environment, and Business Ethics. We also encourage our factories to have unions, so workers have their say to help improve their surroundings.

I’m holding a charity event, will Anorak donate a prize?
Supporting smaller charities and community events is a large part of what we’re about. Please email us at info@anorakonline.co.uk with the details of your event / cause along with your registered charity number.

How do I unsubscribe from your newsletter?
You can unsubscribe to our email newsletters at any time by clicking on the ‘Unsubscribe’ link which appears at the bottom of all our email newsletters. If you’re having trouble, please email our lovely Customer Service Team to unsubscribe. Just so you know, we use a suppression file rather than deleting your details. If we delete your details fully from the database we would not be able to guarantee that you would not receive any future mailings from Anorak as we would not be able to suppress your details, should we receive them again from a third party.
