    Significance and Use

    5.1 The minimum and packaged weight of a tent are properties used by consumers to evaluate tents. The weight may also be used for specifications, manufacturing standards, and quality control.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers requirements for weighing and marking tents for use in the sports of backpacking and mountaineering.

    1.2 This test method may contain test methods that do not entirely simulate real life situations. The test methods are designed to give reproducible results in a laboratory and, thereby, a means for product comparison.

    1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

    1.5 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
