WILDLAND PRODUCT SAFETY INFORMATION
the safety of our clients is incidental's #1 priority
NFPA 1977 is the standards that governs the design and construction of clothing for wildland fire. Read the full standard here
ALL MATERIALS USED IN THE CONSTRUCTION OF INCIDENTAL'S WILDLAND GARMENTS MEET OR EXCEED NFPA 1977 REQUIREMENTS
What this means:
Incidental sources the highest-quality USA-made raw materials each step of the way. Each aspect of the garment (fabric, thread, hardware etc.) has been manufactured to meet heat-related performance standards as laid out in NFPA 1977. Fabric does not catch fire when exposed to open flame, thread does not melt, hardware does not warp, etc.
WHY YOU WILL NOT FIND AN NFPA 1977 LABEL IN OUR GARMENTS:
This standard also dictates the fit and proportion of each garment. As Incidental is in the business of making protective clothing that fits ACTUAL PEOPLE, who can be sized and shaped very differently that what is considered "standard," we cannot claim that our garments are fully compliant with NFPA 1977.
If you have any questions at all regarding Incidental's commitment to your safety, please don't hesitate to ask!
