All rescue and safety equipment is tested thoroughly and tried out under controlled conditions.
This means either tests performed in a laboratory, or simulated situations.

But the most important thing of all, both for us as the manufacturer and not least for the users
of our products is that the equipment functions as it should when it really matters.

There is no other way of confirming this than by trying out the equipment in its proper element.
Børge Ousland “extreme tested” a specially adapted version of our passenger suit Sea Pass on
his expedition from Cape Arktichevsky in Siberia to Ward Hunt Canada.
This is a distance of 1,744 km. The suit was put to use 23 times during the course of the trip.

The suit has subsequently been used by Børge and others for polar expedetions,
including Prince Harry on “Walking with the Wounded”.
