This is the first time I've posted anything commercial on the forum, so please let me know if I've put this in the wrong section or if there's anything inappropriate about it.
Just for some background, after many years of bushwalking and canyoning I decided to start a little online store late last year (https://www.canyongear.com.au
). The focus is on helping Australian canyoners get their hands on the very best gear available at the best possible prices. My main focus is on stocking items that are custom designed by canyoners utilising their wealth of knowledge and experience. I'm also really keen to promote items that are designed and made in Australia for our local conditions.
While most items I stock are very specific to canyoning, which is why I've never posted them here, I've recently added the KTI Safety Alert personal locator beacon
, which is a brilliant safety item relevant to anyone who spends time in the outdoors, especially those who enjoy more remote adventures. (It's also the PLB that finally won me over and made it into my personal equipment.)
This class-leading personal locator beacon provides a fast, reliable way to seek assistance in an emergency, no matter where you are. It is light-weight, compact, buoyant, and watertight down to 3m. Despite weighing just 140 grams, it will continue transmitting for a minimum of 24 hours in an emergency, even at temperatures down to -20°C.
Best of all, this PLB can last you for up to 20 years. The battery is guaranteed for 10 years, at which time you can send it to the Australian manufacturer to have a new battery installed. The local manufacturer can also replace the battery and refurbish the PLB following an emergency activation, avoiding the need to buy a new unit.
So if you've been looking to get yourself a PLB, this is an opportunity to pick a really good one up at a great price.
