In 20 years of practice history, canyoning gears has evolved a lot!
Thanks to our experience in this field, we have been able to test numerous brands and products. Today we choose our equipment for its quality, strength, efficiency and comfort for our clients.
All our equipment is checked daily and the neoprene suits are cleaned with a specific anti-bacterial washing product every day.
TECHNICAL CANYONING EQUIPMENT
We are talking about individual and collective technical equipment when it comes to equipment specifically designed for canyoning. It is provided by Le Sens De l’Eau, and its rental fee is integrated to the rates advertised on the page “Rates & Booking”
Since the beginning we have been with Vade Retro canyoning suits. These 5 mm neoprene rugged and comfortable suits are in two parts, a jumpsuit and a jacket. They have elbow, knee and buttock protections. Our stock is renewed every year so that the neoprene is always effective and guarantees optimal isothermal protection. We choose the size adapted to your morphology following the indications you provide us in the booking form.
We use Elios® helmets from Petzl, famous French brand of mountain gears (headlamps, belaying systems…). Comfortable, light and quick to adjust, these helmets perfectly fulfill their essential role in safety equipment for canyoning. We have several sizes of helmets that allow us to adjust them well to your head. We comply with the European Standards for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
Self-emptying bag and waterproof container
The 6 liter waterproof cans keep your picnic and your belongings dry during the activity. Generally, we take a can for two or three people. Each can is placed in a comfortable and practical bag of 35 liters capacity designed for the canyoning activity.
For canyons that require descents on rope, we bring for each person a harness equipped with a descender (the eight), two lanyards and two carabiners. We plan specific ropes for rappel and counter-insuring. We comply with the European Standards for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
