Canoe and Kayak Store is an independently owned, specialist paddle-sport store based in Gloucestershire. We also have a store in South Wales inside the Cardiff International White Water Centre, where you can demo our boats and paddles on the course.

Our roots trace back to the year 2000 when Richard (having paddled since he was a child) was offered the chance to buy a canoe business. Loving the industry but not liking the company he decided to set up his own – opening a shop in Gloucestershire and leading to where we are today!

    Delivery

    Delivery

    Delivery charges and timescales vary depending on the item ordered and the delivery address. Subject to the exclusions below, the total delivery charge will be shown at the checkout stage of the ordering process.

    We reserve the right to change this delivery charge policy at any time and without notice.

    Delivery within the UK

    Delivery is free for all single orders totalling over £50 delivered to a single address in mainland UK. Some exclusions apply, see below.

    Deliveries to Northern Ireland, Highlands and Islands (including Isle of Wight) are not included as mainland UK for delivery purposes. We will check with our carriers prior to delivery and may contact you by email or telephone if further carriage charges are necessary. You will have the opportunity to accept or cancel the order.

    Some items, such as composite canoes and kayaks, cannot be sent with a carrier as they may get damaged in transit. In such cases, we will inform you by email or telephone as soon as possible to make alternative arrangements. This may involve carriage charges which will be agreed prior to delivery. If you collect the goods, any delivery charges will be refunded.

    Our aim is that orders received by noon Monday – Friday will be shipped that day. However this is subject to the item being in stock at our Gloucestershire warehouse. Delivery should be one to three days from shipment depending on the goods sent and the delivery address.

    Most orders are sent by carrier and will require a signature on receipt. We will contact you prior to despatch to agree the best delivery date. Delivery may be any time between 8am and 6pm. Deliveries to remote areas, particularly Highlands and Islands, where the carriers quote 3 to 5 days, are not guaranteed.

    If there is nobody available at the delivery address to accept delivery a card should be left. Depending on which carrier was used, they may attempt delivery the next working day. However, this and any subsequent deliveries may incur a charge. Alternatively, they may give details of how to arrange redelivery or the address from where the parcel can be collected. We accept no liability if the delivery is not made due to the recipient not being available. If the recipient fails to collect the parcel or arrange redelivery in good time the goods will be returned to us and a charge will be made for redelivery to that or an alternative address.

    In the event that you select a business address for delivery, we shall be deemed to have delivered the order to its intended recipient by delivering it to the reception area of the business address.

    Small orders will be sent by Royal Mail. This may be first class, second class or Recorded Delivery, which will require a signature, depending on the size, weight and value of the order.

    If you require delivery by a particular date, please let us know and we will contact you if we are unable to meet your deadline.

    Where the supply of your product is delayed or prevented for reasons beyond our control (for example, material shortages, import delays or higher than anticipated demand) we will make every effort to keep you informed but shall be under no liability to you for such delay or failure.

    International Shipping

    Our standard charge for international deliveries is £15 however this is for small items only. There may be an additional charge for larger or more valuable items. Please contact us by email or telephone for a quoted delivery charge. Orders will be sent either by post or with a carrier and usually require a signature on receipt.

    Due to customs, legal, regulatory and certain practical restrictions applicable to orders placed for international delivery, some of our products may not be available for delivery to certain destinations outside the UK.  Canoe and Kayak Store reserves the right to define what can and cannot be delivered to which destination.

    Purchases will be made in Pounds Sterling.  International credit card providers or banks will determine the exchange rate and may add additional processing or administration charge in relation to such payment which international credit card holders will be liable to pay.

    Products are sold on a delivery duty unpaid basis.  The recipient may have to pay import duty or formal customs entry fee prior to or on delivery.  Additional taxes, fees or levies may apply according to local legislation and customers are required to check these details before placing an order for international delivery.

    We cannot guarantee that we will accept orders from countries outside the UK.

    Very comfortable helmet. A bit on the warm side, but not bothersome. It has a set of popper fitting on the straps, two of which were missing on the helmet I got, designed presumably for cold weather ear protection extras, not really something to worry about where I live, but check the stuff when it arrives as they are clearly not checking before they send it out or just dont care.

    Such a comfy helmet, and more importantly keeps your head well covered. Ive had mine for about 9 months now, and in that time have bumped down many a low river, far too often on my head. The wanderer fits well and I havent once been worried about it moving while underwater. Comes with plenty of foam to pad it out if you do find the fit not quite right.

    Very nice helmet with very good quality construction! Not so elegant, but it is very comfy with more tha enough protection! For more stylish appearance you can buy the more expensive Rocker.

    Bought this helmet for our daughter as we wanted a helmet with a lot of protection for white water and slalom. She tried on some more suitable for slalom that were lighter with less padding, but she found this one far more comfortable in every way from the fit around her head to the strap. She feels comfortable and it doesn’t move around, this is a very good quality helmet which fits really well and covers a great deal of her head. There are lots of extra pads if you need them. A great helmet, she is very happy 😊

    Hi, My name is

    My Phone Number
    My question about Sweet Protection Wanderer Dirt Black Helmet is...
    Pre-Order

    With Pre-Order, you can purchase the latest items added to our store in advance of them arriving with us.

    You Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that, as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up and get it sent out to you - it often never even hits the stock room shelves!

    Pre-Launch

    With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

    So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.

    Estimated Delivery Dates

    Estimated Delivery Dates are given on Pre-Order and Pre-Launch products. They are for indication purposes only and can change at any time without notice.

    The dates we provide are based on indications given by our suppliers. Whenever we get updated information from our suppliers we will endeavour to update the Estimated Delivery Dates provided on product pages.
