We have been busy since releasing our next advancement in Swiftwater rescue, the Rapid Survival System. The first shipment of 50 units is heading out the door and is destined for the Men and Women of the BC Search and Rescue Association.
The Rapid Survival System is the most important advancement for Professional Rescue in many years.
Developed with a group of SAR professionals, the RSS is designed to provide rapid and significant additional floatation and assistance for rescuers in potentially threatening situations.
Two Canoe Spray Decks, with a combined 268 days of serious use on the water and about 10,794 km travelled. Frank Wolf is a Canadian filmmaker, adventurer, writer, and environmentalist and he has certainly put our Spray Decks through their paces much more than most of us who don't "work" out of our canoes for a living.
The North Water 4-Bailer is your all-in-one compact safety kit and is now available in two sizes.
