Always on your way with RECCO®

By Rogier on 24 January 2021 · 0

It might be a no-brainer to carry a RECCO® when your exploring in nature, during winter sports and when you go off-piste. But how do you get those RECCO® reflection strips? More than 150 outdoor sports brands have incorporated RECCO® reflectors in their apparel, boots or helmets. If your apparel does not have RECCO®, simple solutions can also be found! This way it is easy to always go out with a reflector strip.

Appropriate apparel and gear

It is important that the gear containing the RECCO® is well connected to your body. Because the rescue teams are looking for the reflector plate. So pants, helmets and ski boots are perfect for incorporating a reflector plate. If you buy a RECCO® patch yourself, it is wise to only stick it on material that is stuck to your body. Such as your helmet!

More than 150 brands with RECCO®

More than 150 brands use RECCO® in their apparel. It is therefore always possible to find well-fitting boots, helmets, jackets or pants in which a RECCO® reflector has been incorporated.

  • Think of light ski touring boots like the Scarpa F1 or the more freeride-oriented shoes like the Tecnica Cochise 130.
  • Also with helmets you can choose between freeride helmets from, for example, Atomic and Poc, as well as affordable helmets from Wed’ze. Extremely light touring ski and mountain sports helmets from UVEX and Grivel are also equipped with RECCO®.
