Tatonka and RECCO announce partnership to expand searchability in the outdoors
April 23, 2019
Currently making its way to stores for the 2018/2019 winter season, the SCARPA® F1 ski touring boot allows skiers to always be searchable by professional rescue teams equipped with RECCO detectors in outdoor environments.
The first products featuring RECCO reflectors are three backpack models designed for a variety of uses in winter and summer environments:
SKILL 30 RECCO
KINGS PEAK 45 RECCO
KINGS PEAK 60 RECCO
In addition to outdoor equipment, Tatonka is producing outerwear that will also feature integrated RECCO reflectors. The jackets and pants with RECCO reflectors will increase chances of searchability by professional rescue services in the event of an accident or getting lost in the outdoors.
“At Tatonka we are always looking for new technologies that make our products better – in this case safer. That’s why we’re proud to add value to our customers by integrating RECCO rescue reflectors into our two backpacking lines.” – Sebastian Glasner, Head of Marketing at Tatonka.
Tatonka and RECCO are excited about this new partnership with the shared goal of helping ensure the safety of outdoor adventurers through a collaboration that will continue to expand the RECCO network.
