Equipment

The equipment we use, and can recommend, has been carefully selected over many years as a result of being involved in the design and development as well as testing this type of equipment. The designs and technology used in today’s products are the result of years of research and development and range from clothing and equipment to technical items such as communications. We use and recommend only the best and most appropriate items suitable for the environment we operate in and selected on the basis of personal experience for year-round use.

Night Vision Equipment

We are trained in the use of night vision equipment and the techniques and procedures needed to use it as a team, both for training purposes and for emergencies such as night searches. Night vision equipment has advantages over bright lights in mountainous areas as it avoids casting shadows that can cause confusion, especially in rock or boulder strewn areas. It also has advantages in mist, reducing reflected glare that occurs with bright lights in these conditions.
