RECCO® technology makes you searchable to professional rescuers in the event of an avalanche accident. The technology enables rapid directional pinpointing of a victim’s precise location using harmonic radar. The two-part technology consists of a RECCO® detector used by 700+ rescue organizations worldwide, and RECCO® reflectors that are integrated into apparel, helmets, protection gear, and boots. The reflector is permanently affixed, requires no training for use and needs no batteries to function.
RECCO® technology is not intended for companion rescue nor is it an alternative to transceiver use in the backcountry. Complementary in function to the transceiver, RECCO® technology is an additional tool that does not interfere with other search methods such as transceiver searches, avalanche dogs, or probe lines. The RECCO® technology facilitates a faster search by professional rescuers and provides skiers and snowboarders with one more chance to be found in time.
Polartec® Wind Pro®:
The Nudown Mount Whitney vest uses Polartec® Wind Pro® fabrics which are extremely breathable yet provide 4x more wind resistance than traditional fleece. This is the “super fleece” which spans an incredibly wide range of conditions; performs as both outerwear and insulation; and offers exceptional durability. This is a versatile fabric which can be worn all year long for a variety of activities. PrimaLoft® GOLD:
One of the highest performing insulation on the market for warmth, water resistance, softness and compressibility. PrimaLoft® GOLD an ultra-fine microfiber insulation that is as warm, soft and lightweight, and is warmer wet or dry than all other insulations. Ultra-fine fibers form tiny air pockets that trap body heat and keep the cold out. The result is immediate warmth without the bulk. PrimaLoft® GOLD Microfibers are engineered for permanent water resistance and create tight surface tension that resists moisture penetration, resulting in an insulation that dries faster than goose down. Ultra-fine fibers mimic the compressibility of goose down and are breathable, allowing moisture vapor to be transported through the fibers and away from the skin.
