Looking for chemical free camping tents

Recently read an article about flame retardants and tents. I know Mountain Hardwear is no longer using them on their tents and that REI is planning on phasing them out this fall. What are my options currently available? Thanks!

 I am looking for a larger tent with no fire retardants, would you be able to point to some for 6+ . If not , my second option would be 4+ .

Thanks much



Any timeline on the Kingdom 4 being flame retardant free?


Thanks for the question!

At this time, we do not have a specific date when the REI Co-op Kingdom line of tents will be flame retardant free. We will post an update here in the community as soon as we have more information available. In the meantime, you appreciate some of the information in this article posted in the Co-op Journal last October, REI Pursuing New Testing Methods to Eliminate Flame Retardants.
