RECCO reflector

  1. The RECCO detector emits a directional radar signal, like the beam of a flashlight
  2. When the radar signal hits the RECCO reflector, it is echoed back to the detector and points the rescuer in the direction of the pilot.
  3. The closer the detector gets to the reflector, the stronger the returned-signal, ultimately allowing the rescuer to pinpoint the pilot's location.

How does the harness-rucksack connection work?

The rucksack is attached to the Crest with 4 buckles in the harness rear pocket. You can either keep it attached like in a classic reversible harness or use it as a separate item

How do I attach the leg straps?

The leg straps have a green right loop and a red left loop and you simply have to wear your Crest and then secure each loop to the main carabiner of the same color. Once the loops are in, the words LEFT and RIGHT must be facing inwards.

What is the elastic of the speed bar for?

The speed bar is very light and the wind would push it back during flight. The foot elastic enables you to have the speed bar always at reach.
