Return Policy

Best Glide ASE wants you to be happy with your purchase.  We provide a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee.  You can return a product in its original packaging for any reason or no reason at all within 30 days of purchase.  

We regret that we cannot accept returns on the following items: partially consumed water and food rations, partially used survival or first aid kits or any item that appears to have been used contrary to the manufacturer’s recommendations or its intended purpose.

Any damaged shipments should be reported to the carrier as there is a limited time for making a claim. Keep the packaging, all packing materials, and all of the items together. The carrier will inspect the packaging and contents and will return the damaged items to us. We will resolve the matter with them and ship a replacement to you ASAP. We usually will not wait for a resolution prior to sending you a replacement product. Again, your customer satisfaction is extremely important to us.

Shipping Information

Best Glide ASE utilizes UPS and USPS as our standard methods of shipping. UPS and USPS allow us to provide you notification of shipment information and a tracking number so that you may monitor your order’s status. The shipping and handling charges are determined by an approximation of weight. Most orders are shipped within 48 hours of receipt.

If you would prefer another method of shipping, please contact us prior to ordering and we will make every effort to accommodate your needs.

Our preferred method of shipping overseas is via U.S. Postal Global Express Mail (EMS). This method is usually the least expensive and is trackable.  Please contact us at for more information.

All shipments to Canada are shipped UPS unless US Postal Service (USPS) shipping is requested.
However, please know that UPS applies fees, that we have no control over, to packages delivered to Canada addresses, which are collected by UPS prior to delivery. These fees do not go to us and are the sole responsibility of UPS.

If you would prefer US Postal Service (USPS) shipping, please give us a call or email us with this request. 

Hazmat Shipping

Unfortunately, Hazardous Material Shipments cost substantially more than normal shipments. Hazardous materials include such items as signal flares, fire extinguishers and other items the shipping company has deemed as potentially hazardous to transport via commercial shipper. Due to this fact, we regret that we have to add an additional charge for shipping on these items. This charge will be automatically calculated at the time of your order. For Hazmat items please call us to make delivery arrangements. We cannot currently take these orders via our automated web site. We apologize but we currently cannot ship hazardous materials internationally, or to Alaska and Hawaii.
