BRAND PARTNERS:

Many of Dave’s assignments are in remote and demanding environments where there are no repair or resupply facilities, so any equipment taken on these trips has to be reliable and dependable.  Any gear Dave uses and adds to our in-house equipment list has to meet this criteria – and the equipment partnerships Dave has formed over the years are by choice, with brands he trusts and believes in.
