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!

    Buyers Guide

    Warranty
    Under normal use, Peak UK products are guaranteed for one year from the date of purchase against faults in manufacture and materials. Your receipt is your guarantee. Make sure you ask for a a receipt at the point of sale and keep it safe, however in Canoe and Kayak Store we keep a history of all your purchases on our system so will always be able to give you a new copy. Peak UK gear is designed and tested for performance canoeing and kayaking only. Using it for other activities unless clearely stated is at your own risk and terminates the products warranty and Peak UK's liability. 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 m ay enter via the garments seals and openings. Condensation can build up inside even thoughthe garment is breathable. Breathability will reduce condensation, not eliminate it, especially in damp and humid conditions. 
     
    Due to the fragile nature of the materials used, dry zips, latex seals, neoprene seals and fabric socks are not coveredby this warranty. They can be replaced for a reasonable fee. Please do not modify your own equipment. This will invalidagte the warranty.

    Technical Information

    Care for your Kit
    Please ensure that you 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 wet 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 Performance wash 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 ashesive. From time to time reproof the garment's outer fabric with Grangers Xtreme Repel.

    Delivery

    Delivery

    Delivery is free for all orders to mainland UK totaling over £50 (some exclusions apply).

    Deliveries to Northern Ireland, Highlands and Islands 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 Royalex and composite canoes, cannot be sent with a carrier as they may get damaged in transit. In such cases, we will inform you by email or telephone immediately on receipt of your order 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.

    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.

    Our aim is that orders received by noon Monday – Friday will be shipped that day.

    We send orders by carrier or Royal Mail Recorded Delivery, both of which will require a signature on receipt. If there is nobody available at the delivery address to accept delivery a card will be left to inform the recipient of where the parcel can be collected. It then becomes the recipient's responsibility to collect the parcel. 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 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.

    Peak UK Explorer Zip Red PFD ,  On

    I bought this PFD in the hope that it had better and easier pockets to accomodate all the clobber a sea kayaker needs to have on his/her person but still be comfortable to paddle in. The front pockets are very good indeed and accommodate radio,PLB, pogies, mars bar etc with ease- even if I do look like a male Jayne Mansfield. I was hoping that the hydration pocket would take my laser flare, which it does but I am still working on a way to get it out easily. It is very comfortable and easy to paddle in. An excellent bit of kit- well designed, though I have yet to see how well it supports me in the water!
    YES Martin would recommend this item

    My question about Peak UK Explorer Zip Red PFD 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.
