Easily attaches to your backpack, keeping you searchable to rescuers when you’re adventuring in the outdoors.
The RECCO search and rescue system has been a standard equipment for organized avalanche rescue services for many years. In order to be located by the RECCO detectors of the mountain rescuers one must be equipped with a RECCO rescue reflector. With the RECCO SAR helicopter detector, rescue workers can search large areas of clear terrain quickly and effectively for missing persons from the helicopter.
The RECCO Backpack Rescue Reflector has been specially designed for the application on carrying straps of backpacks and is primarily intended for use in the summer to be located by helicopter in the event of a missing person situation. When using the Backpack Reflector in zones with avalanche danger in winter, it is important to note that the reflector is only used on backpacks that are secured like an avalanche airbag backpack with a leg loop, since a detached backpack with a reflector in an avalanche can lead to a false signal.
The items will be sent by post after the order is placed. Alternatively, they can also be collected from the Zermatt Tourist Office.
