R-Trekking Poles / Trekking Poles

R-Trekking Poles
R-Trekking Poles

Incidents such as becoming lost and other emergencies can be extremely dangerous
at night. When the sun falls the in gets harder for the rescue team to identify the location of the lost person. R-Trekking Pole has the features of a hiking pole plus its own important new additional features for emergent and dark situations.
When an emergency occurs the user can select the blinking mode and shake the R-Trekking Pole from side to side in the air to signal for rescue. Through this action the user can signal his or their own position in the sky, which can be helpful for the rescuers to recognize the location of the user even in the dark.
