Clarification about materials used in tents

Hi I have a question do the block out materials contain lead? I have seen some of the tents with warning that they contain possible cancerous materials. I was wondering what tent you would recommend for 6 people that does not have lead to other cancer related materials.

@Gabbyron2000 Thanks for reaching out!

We have a couple of clarifying questions for you:

  • What do you mean by 'block out materials'? 
  • When you are seeing the warnings, are you asking about the Prop 65 warnings for the state of California?

If you are speaking about the Prop 65 warnings, you can find a couple of other threads about this topic here and here. If you could clarify the warnings for us, we will be happy to provide some insight into some tents for you.
