Pricing FAQ

How much does Kitted cost?

You can create a Profile and explore this season's expertly curated Kitted Collections for free! When you're ready, create a Kit of any five items that you'd like to give a try. Your $25 curation fee will be charged when you confirm your Kit for shipment, and will get credited toward any purchase of $100 or more. You'll only pay for items you keep, and receive a bigger discount based on the dollar amount you keep. No additional fees for shipping or returns. Collections are refreshed seasonally, and you can build and test as many Kits as you’d like each season (one Kit at a time).

Do you have a price match guarantee?

Yes! We'll match any published price (the price currently listed on an authorized, US-based retailer's website) for an identical item (same size, color, year) in new condition. If you find a better price on one of our competitor's sites, contact us at within 48 hours of placing your order, and we'll credit your card the difference (auction sites do not apply). Notifications more than 48 hours after checkout purchase will not qualify. **Note: Price matching may affect your discount tier and total refund amount.

When will I be charged?

Your $25 curation fee will be charged when you confirm your Kit for shipment, and will get credited toward any purchase of $100 or more. There is no upfront payment for items, so you have the freedom to try items before you commit to buying.

Is Kitted a subscription?

Nope, there is no subscription to be a part of Kitted. Charges on your credit card will align with transactions that you place (e.g. ordering a Kit or keeping items out of your Kit). There is no fee to shop and explore the collections. You can build as many or as few Kits as you'd like each season.* This is your Kit, on your schedule.

*Members can have one Kit out at a time.

Outside Logo

"...No amount of agonizing over product descriptions and third-party reviews will tell you what you really need to know, which is how the product will feel on day two of a four-day trip, how easy it will be to use in the field, and how it will perform in different weather, temperatures, and terrain.

That’s where Cairn’s new home try-on service [Kitted] comes in."
