Our efforts have evolved over 35 years to where they are now: identifying the best use of technology with respect to lighting, radio communications, available battery chemistries, and form factors for all those. We appreciate the specialized needs of members of communities who operate in periglacial environments such as formally trained AT Skiers, Sledders, Adventure Racers and Search and Rescue specialists. Because our vocations are also in those fields, it puts us in a priviledged postion to address their needs. Unqualified use of the products on this site can result in risk to the user and their stakeholders. Because of that, much of the technical product information and documentation can become tedious and time consuming to work through. Often the clients require pre-sale support or we may notice anomalies which give rise to concern and necessitates we have to initiate further consultation before we can ship. This can conflict with an end user expectation of being able to place items in a shopping cart after browsing for a few minutes. We'd recommend individuals who are looking for recreational grade consumer items to use on weekend outings would be better served by other eCommerce sites such as MEC, but everyone is welcome to contact us with questions or concerns withal.
