ZPacks Tent Disclaimer Tag
I posted recently that ZPacks had apparently started adding safety disclaimer tags to their shelter, and asked if anybody had one if they would snap a photo and send it to me so I could share it.

Patron J P Quinton, from Australia, send me a photograph tonight of the one that ZPacks attached to his Duplex Tarp - so huge thanks and 100% credit to him for this photograph!

You can check out more about this Duplex flex tarp within this write-up he did.

The Tent Disclaimer Tag:

Here is the full text of the Tent Disclaimer Tag:

------------------------------------------

KEEP ALL FLAME AND HEAT SOURCES AWAY FROM THIS TENT FABRIC.

This tent is made of flame-resistant fabric. It is not fireproof. The fabric will burn if left in continuous contact with a flame source.

DO NOT OPERATE ANY DEVICE WHICH BURNS FUEL INSIDE THIS TENT

* Never place your stove, campfire, or other flame source in or near your tent. Never cook, light, or refuel a stove or any other head source inside of your tent. Death by suffocation and/or serious burns are possible.

* Build campfires downwind & several meters away from the tent. Always bee sure to fully extinguish camp fires.

* Extinguish or turn off lanterns before going to sleep.

* Avoid smoking in the tent.

* Never store flammable liquids inside the tent.

* Maintain adequate ventilation inside your tent at all times. Death by suffocation is possible.

* When choosing a campsite, carefully consider the possibility of falling rocks or tree limbs, lightning strikes, flash floods, avalanches, strong winds, or other objective hazards to reduce the risk of loss or injury to the tent or occupants.

* Anchor your tent properly at all times to reduce the risk of loss or injury to the tent or occupants.

In Closing:

It is nice to see that ZPacks has gotten to a stage in their business growth where disclaimer tags are now being placed on their shelters!

I would like to point out that I did not make a typo in the first bullet point where it says 'any other head source', which should read 'heat', not 'head'. Opps on their part.

I am also left wondering if ZPacks will have both a metric and non-metric version, for the second bullet point where it says 'several meters' - you folks from outside American do know that most Americans are idiots when it comes to metrics and grams and such ;)
