RECCO Advanced Rescue Technology is currently integrated in products from more than 200 brands, thus making their customers searchable for organized rescue in the event of an avalanche accident. Now in 2017, 15 new brands will integrate the RECCO system in their products.
The new brands making people searchable through RECCO reflectors are:
Black Mountain Clothing Company
Red7 Ski Wear
RECCO is also proud to announce that Millet will again equip their apparel with RECCO reflectors. Millet will extend their integration of RECCO reflectors to include both ski and ski mountaineering gear.
The commitment to the RECCO system continues to grow with many major brands such as Arc’teryx, Patagonia, Helly Hansen, Mountain Hardwear, J.Lindeberg and Peak Performance continuing to include RECCO reflectors in all their skiing and snowboarding products. Peak Performance includes the RECCO system in junior clothing while both Patagonia and Mountain Hardwear include the system in both ski and ski mountaineering wear.
The RECCO reflectors, found in products created by these brands, enable professional rescuers to faster locate and rescue victims caught and buried by avalanches when using a RECCO hand-held detector. RECCO is a global avalanche rescue system for professional rescue and is currently utilized by more than 800 ski resorts, mountain rescue teams and rescue helicopters worldwide.

RECCO® advanced rescue technology makes outdoor enthusiasts searchable to rescuers in case of an avalanche accident or when lost in the outdoors. The technology builds on a two-part radar system. Rescuers carry RECCO® detectors that send out search signals which are echoed by RECCO® reflectors, carried by the user. RECCO® detectors are used worldwide at more than 900 ski resorts and mountain rescue organizations in 28 countries. RECCO® reflectors are integrated into select apparel, helmets, protection gear and boots manufactured by more than 150 leading outdoor brands. RECCO AB was founded in 1983 in Sweden and is owned by its founder Magnus Granhed and the publicly traded investment company Traction AB (listed on OMX Nordic Exchange Stockholm).
