Water Bladder let me down
Hi, purchased a 6 Ltr Sea to Summit water bladder which lasted 6 days on a hike before leaking. Returned to Snowies who examined & refused an exchange as they classified it being punctured by a sharp object which warranty will not cover. $50 badly spent. Disappointed in the product ,& customer service.
Lost a Customer
Been using snowys for a few years spent over a $1000 with these guys.
Bought a 24pc 360 deg dinner set and had the knife snap whilst I was putting a spread on my toast.
Snowys reply was sorry warranty doesnt cover accidental damage.
Hardly call using a knife for the purpose its made accidental damage.
So they have lost my business over a $3 knife.
360 deg haven't even bothered to answer my email so I will no longer use their products either.
took a while, but Snowys' did eventually fix a problem
My only experience with Snowys was mixed. I couldn’t get a look at a particular tent anywhere near my place, so relied on their online videos and descriptions, which didn’t work out in practice. The tent was really poor in the wet, something I haven’t had to worry about for years, and should have been made obvious on the website. It took a long time, but Snowys did finally resolve the issue, which was reasonably complicated.
Delivery was impressively fast, even during the holidays, but they do use Toll.

Holes in shelter. Won’t get replacement before holiday, be forced to keep it or buy another shelter elsewhere. Delayed claim
Warranty Claim Disgrace
My experience with Snowys has been abysmal: I purchased an Oztrail 450 Lodge LED from them. During my second outing the flysheet failed (the seams came apart), and we got wet. I contacted Snowys who were very reluctant to give me a refund. They said they would send me a new flysheet. It didn’t arrive, so I contacted them again, only to find that they hadn’t even sent it. When they finally sent it, they sent it to the wrong address. During my third outing, during pack up, a bolt in one of the knuckles snapped clean. I contacted Snowys again, and...asked for a refund. In three separate emails, Snowys claimed – without ANY proof whatsoever – that the bolt was ‘bent’, and was a result of user error, and flatly refused to give me a refund. After much back and forth with Snowys, they said that the most they could do was source me a replacement leg, and that they usually charge the customer, but on this occasion, they will replace it for free, implying that they were doing me a favour – disgusting! Even had they refunded me the tent, they refused at the beginning to refund me the 100$ for the two walls I had bought with it, because it didn’t meet their returns policy (they had been used once). Even were I to accept the replacement leg, I have lost absolute faith in the tent, and cannot afford to risk camping in a sub par product that has let me and my family – a pregnant wife, and 18-month old – down two out of the three time we have used it! I couldn’t agree more with Luke J who commented that Snowys were ‘like lawyers’ in his post ‘Snowys are Trash,’ posted 4 weeks ago. I’ll never shop at Snowys again.
Snowys is trash.
I spent $2000 in two weeks and my swag came with a cracked support pole, esky wasn’t as advertised, the cryvacer was falsely advertised as 12volt (didn’t work). I had that many parcels coming spread out over 3 weeks yet everything was in stock when I ordered.....just got back from my prosponed camping trip and felt like I’d been jolly Rodgered by SNOWYS OUTDOORS... And the customer service, let’s just say they are like lawyers, I’ll get some photos and video footage up of their lovely products

I placed an order for a pair of shoes, supposed to receive by few days. Few days later recieved an sms: your order will be at our warehouse by 1 more week. Then when the new date passed, recieved the second sms: will be here by 3 more weeks which did not happen. 2 weeks after new date passed 3rd sms came: will be here by 6 months! Really?!
I called today, they say because of covid-19 the shipping is being delayed from overseas. I was not convinced, they say: it is not manufactured yet! I asked so why did you put it up and mentioned stock avail...
The product says portable air conditioner. Literally says it in the advert and the product description .
Well aware that most ' air coolers' dont cut it as a 'portable air conditioner' , this product description made me think otherwise
Didnt work properly ( was for a golf cart in summer ) and advised wait for it ..... ' its not an air- conditioner'
Even though they sold it to me as such !
Any post sales help forget it .
Dont use these guys if u want any common sense applied to customer service
Ordered book. Never got it. Toll screwed up. Snowys refuse to refund.
Toll didnt deliver after insisted my house is a business address. It's not. Snowys rep took Toll's side. Asked me if I was sure my house isnt a business. Second 'delivery attempt' - Toll claim they delivered. They never did. Snowys refuse to refund. $32 down the drain. What did you think Snowys? Did you think I was lying? To try and steal $32? Peasant stuff. Poor business practice. $32 has earnt you guys negative reviews. Cheers

Never delivered, and no refund
Placed order online, only part order delivered. Customer service informed that if order not delivered but returned to Snowy's there's $25 fee so no refund on item they never delivered!
Questions & Answers
We recently purchase a 200 watt croc skin armour solar panels , and noticed that it only comes with a 15 amp regulator ,when 200 watts =16.67 amps will the 15 amp regulator handle the extra amperage?cheers, Tony
200W only equals 16.67A at 12v.
These panels are 18v, so the max output is 11.11A.
Hope that helps!
Greetings. I recently purchase a replacement dimmer for my yellow/white light setup. The new dimmer has got a different yellow connector (key locks)from my previous one and so doesn't connect up with the the 2 light bars through the Y connector piece. Please advise.
I assume you are referring to the Korr Camp Light Kits here Bwana?
If so, then as far as I am aware the fittings have always been the same. If you are still having problems here I'd suggest sending some photos of the fittings to email@example.com, we'll be in a better position to provide advice.
I bought the Coleman eventemp 3 burner stove. I want to use It with normal swap ‘n’ go gas bottle from garage. Do I need an adapter? If so, which type? There are so many to choose from.
Hi Di, assuming you are connecting to the 9Kg Swap and Go bottles which have a POL fitting, you'll you would need is one of these hoses - https://www.snowys.com.au/gas-hose-colemanbomunef-to-pol.
You need to keep the regulator attached to the stove and connect the hose to the regulator, then you can attach the other end of the hose to the gas bottle.
I hope that helps.
