Disclaimer and Warning

Survival in the wilderness is inherently risky and dangerous and an aircraft crash can add to the difficulty a survivor experiences. Injuries are a common and ordinary occurrence and the RISK OF MAIMING, INJURY OR DEATH IN A SURVIVAL SITUATION IS ALWAYS A POSSIBILITY, regardless of preparations. The purchase or carriage of a Doug Ritter Aviator Survival Pak cannot assure your survival and may not prevent serious injury, maiming or death. A survival situation, real or simulated, will expose the survivor to hazards and risks, both natural and artificial, THAT MAY RESULT IN HARM, DAMAGE, PERSONAL INJURIES OR DEATH to the survivor or to those accompanying the survivor. INJURIES OF ALL TYPES ARE A COMMON AND ORDINARY OCCURRENCE which can and do occur at any time and place while in a real or simulated survival situation. Doug Ritter DOES NOT ENDORSE THE SAFETY OF USING ANY SURVIVAL EQUIPMENT, SUPPLIES, SERVICES, OR TECHNIQUES. THE PURCHASER ASSUMES ALL RISKS for use of any equipment, supplies provided or techniques covered in any provided survival instructions and included in the survival kit. Inclusion in the survival kit of ANY SURVIVAL EQUIPMENT, SUPPLIES, SERVICES OR TECHNIQUES DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A GUARANTY OR WARRANTY that the equipment, supplies, services or techniques will function when needed in a survival situation, or that they will be adequate to prevent survivor's injury or death or the injury or the death of those accompanying the survivor even if they function correctly and fully, OR THAT THEY ARE LEGAL FOR USE UNDER ALL CIRCUMSTANCES and survivor assumes all responsibility for complying with any and all applicable laws and regulations. It is the sole responsibility of the owner of the survival kits (not Ritter) to ascertain, interpret and obey all applicable local, state, federal, foreign, international and/or any other laws which govern the transportation, possession and use of any survival equipment, supplies, weapons, tools, and survival techniques. Some survival equipment and supplies, such as, but not limited to, knives, firearms, and pyrotechnics, are inherently dangerous and can injure, maim or kill even when used appropriately. Some survival techniques, such as, but not limited to, felling trees, creating shelter and building fires are inherently dangerous and can injure, maim or kill even when used appropriately and performed correctly. The carriage of some survival equipment and supplies, such as, but not limited to, knives, firearms, and pyrotechnics, is inherently dangerous and can injure, maim or kill or cause damage to, or destruction of personal property even when stored appropriately. The carriage of some survival equipment and supplies, such as, but not limited to, knives, firearms, and pyrotechnics, may not be legal under all jurisdictions and the owners assumes all responsibility for complying with any and all applicable laws and regulations. The survival instructions provided with these survival kits cannot foresee or provide instruction to deal with all survival circumstances a survivor may find themselves in and TECHNIQUES PRESENTED MAY NOT BE ADEQUATE TO PREVENT INJURY OR DEATH to the survivor or to those accompanying the survivor. The supplies and equipment provided in these survival kits cannot deal with all survival circumstances a survivor may find themselves in and THE SURVIVAL EQUIPMENT AND SUPPLIES MAY NOT BE ADEQUATE TO PREVENT INJURY OR DEATH to the survivor or to those accompanying the survivor.

The purchaser is informed of the storage life of the components and/or the expiration dates for the components upon delivery of the Pak to the purchaser. The purchaser assumes full and complete responsibility for replacing the components prior to their expiration. Doug Ritter cannot be responsible for failure of a purchaser to replace expired components or any subsequent damages or injury that may occur, regardless of the cause. Expiration dates are determined based on information supplied by the manufacturers of the products or generally available information at the time of assembly. Many conditions outside the control of Doug Ritter, including, but not limited to temperature extremes and pressure changes, may adversely affect the storage life of the components and may make them unsuitable for use earlier than expected.
