Recco®

Safety reflector rescue system

Recco rescue system

Being prepared for changing conditions and events is a huge part of skiing and one of the most unexpected things that skiers can encounter is an avalanche. Since its launch the RECCO® Rescue System has become the standard bearer in avalanche search and rescue technology. Obermeyer is a partner with over 700 organizations worldwide who depend on RECCO®.

The beauty of the RECCO® system is that it's always on and ready to go with no batteries that might run out. For the wearer the system consists of a permanently attached "reflector" which is sewn into Obermeyer outerwear pieces. When an avalanche happens, professional rescuers pull out a RECCO® detector which scans the slide area for signals and allows them to easily find those under the snow.
