GEAR QUESTIONS

Are your products “TSA Approved”?

Here’s a quote directly from the TSA website: “The final decision rests with the TSA officer on whether an item is allowed through the checkpoint.”

Technically, our products are not “TSA Approved,” however, according to the TSA website, there is no such thing. Agents can use their own discretion to remove objects or personal items that they feel are a threat to the flight. That being said, the Wazoo crew has flown on many domestic and international flights without any incident, testing the scrutiny of the Adventure and Essentials Kit components and Necklaces through the body scanner, magnetometer, and in carry-on luggage. Therefore, we can say with certainty that, depending on the circumstances, you should have no issues getting through TSA with our products.

TSA does provide a list of prohibited items which can be reviewed HERE.

Can I Wear Your Necklaces in the Shower/Ocean/Lake/River?

Absolutly, YES! We created this product to be worn everywhere, all the time, so that you’re always prepared for any situation. Wearing the leather necklaces in the shower is actually better for them in the long run, since it assures that you’ll be keeping the leather clean - just as you are keeping your body. Salt water and sweat can affect the integreity of the ferrocerium rod. As with any metal, they can corrode the ferrocerium rod if left on for an extended period of time. When rinsing off the necklace, make sure to move the ferrocerium rod up and down the leather to completly rinse off any residue from all parts of the necklace.

Why is my hat is discoloring?

We’ll give you just a few reasons why that’s happening.

Yellowish stains are typically from sweat and body grime (have you tried taking a shower dude? ) However, orange~ish discolorations are chemical reactions. These chemical reactions can be caused by:

Wearing your hat post swim. Your hair will still be holding chlorine and other pool chemicals and they’ll slowly turn your hat orange.Facial products. Lotions, facial treatments (especially benzoil peroxide!) and other creams will turn your hat orange.Hair care products. Same reasons as above.

Discoloation usually happens when sweat and chemicals sit on the hat for long periods of time. So if you rinse them off right away and wash them, it might minimize the discoloration. Lastly, discoloration of black happens because there's no such dye color as 'black' in the natural (cotton, wood, etc) world. Sun and washing machines will beat the darkness out of anything over time.

What size Cache Belt do I order?

We size our belts based on MEASURED WASIT SIZE. This is DIFFERENT than your pant size, sorry!

To find your correct size, take a tape measure and wrap it around your waist, where your pants would sit on your body. Whether you’re using inches or centimeters, this measurement will correspond to the Small, Medium, Large, or X-Large belt size that you are (and should order.) If you’re between sizes we recommend checking out our Sizing Chart to see the estimated tail lengths of both sizes.
