We have a small selection of products that are considered hazmat items that are only eligible for Ground shipping, with restricted carrier options. Items like this with shipping restrictions cannot be sent to P.O. Boxes, Alaska, Hawaii, APO or FPO.
If you see Ground shipping as the only available option during checkout, it's likely because your order contains an item with shipping restrictions due to a hazardous material.
For instance, FedEx considers any product that includes a tube of adhesive glue (commonly found in our Thermarest patch kits) as hazardous material. As a result, 2-Day and Overnight shipping options are not available for these items.
The only other caveat to this is that some carriers we work with have certain remote locations that they’re unable to ship 2-Day or Overnight to. If this is the case, the 2-Day or Overnight option will not be available at checkout.
