Shipping/Exchange/Returns Policy


If you need to exchange to a different size belt system, we are happy to exchange it for free. You have 30 days from delivery date to exchange - as we track all items shipped (and require a receipt, if in-store purchase)

NOTE: Belt Systems MUST be in the original condition that you received it in i.e. the AWS Label is in mint condition (not scratched, warped or frayed), the Buckle must not have any scratches or dings and the webbing or MOLLE has to show no signs of use or wear. The Inner Belt has to be in the exact same state when received. 

Please fill out this form to initiate an exchange:


Allow up to 2-3 business days for your exchange to be reviewed. If Belt System is not in stock, it will be put into Production (please allow up to 14-21 business days to manufacture). We will shoot you an email to notify you if the Belt System you are requesting to exchange is not in stock.



If you would like to exchange an item for a different color, pouch type etc. The customer will be responsible for paying shipping for the originally received product to be sent back to our facility. Once we receive that item, AWS will pay for the outgoing shipping cost of the requested exchange item.

PLEASE NOTE: If you are requesting a product of a higher or lesser value, create an account on our website and we will send you a custom invoice for the difference.


"In stock" means items that are in our store front AND product being manufactured in REAL TIME. NOTE: Product in our store front can be shipped within 2-3 business days. Items that are in production, are subject to a lead time of 14-21 business days.

If you need your order expedited outside of our lead time policy, please do not hesitate to contact us. We will make a note on your order and try our hardest to help expedite the matter. The customer will be responsible for any expedited shipping costs that are incurred.

AWS, Inc is not responsible for any items lost or stolen in transit. Once product leaves AWS, it is ultimately out of our control. If your package is lost or stolen, please contact USPS or UPS to initiate a claim. After you have initiated a claim, please alert us so that we can follow up. We will try to help in the matter to the best of our ability.


A shipping address error resulting in a RETURN TO SENDER - without informing us prior to your order shipping (which could be 1-21 days) will ultimately be the customers responsibility. When this occurs, please promptly alert us with the corrected address via email. Create an account within our website, then we will issue a custom invoice for the customer to pay for the package to be re-shipped. As a small business owner, we appreciate your business greatly and thank you for choosing AWS Gear.
