Does REI sell or retail any tents that have ZERO flame retardants, PFCs, and PFAS chemicals?

I'm looking for a tent that does not have any PFCs, PFOA/PFOS, or flame retardant chemicals. These chemicals are highly toxic.

Does REI sell any such tents? If not REI, does anyone know of any outfits that do sell such tents?

I see that Mountain Hardwear's tents don't have flame retardants, but they are silent on the topic of PFCs and PFAS compounds.






Thank you

Thank you for reaching out and for your patience as we worked to track down this information for you.

At this time, REI does not carry any tents that do not have PFCs or PFAS compounds. Here are some resources about the work REI is doing in this area: 

We did a quick google search and, while we cannot verify any of the information, has links to some outdoor products that may interest you.

Hopefully this helps, thanks!
