Dependant on what personal kit a Search Technician carries the bag that the kit is stowed inside has to be of a durable material and waterproof too.

Warm outer clothing

This is a good example of a Keela waterproof storm jacket with integrated hood. Very comfortable and withstands a good battering by the elements.
The thick leather padded gloves and woolly hat are a must for the winter.

Class 4 high visibility jacket with bump cap

This High Vis is worn at all times during a search to ensure visibility of the technician – especially by the roadside.
The ‘Bump’ cap is to be worn when in dense bracken wooded areas to reduce injury to the scalp. There is also a basic compass and red rescue whistle in one of the pockets, the whistle can be used to draw attention to your location or find.
