Although I agree with what you are saying and think this makes perfect sense for all winter gear to have the reflectors built in.. however it seems you sell recco products so perhaps get an advert slot

In the small print it does say along with transceivers, but I'm sure there are concerns that many will think they can go beyond resort boundaries without proper equipment and more importantly avalanche education and be safe.

A big plus it's that it can be used for the air, at least they'll find your body before spring if that's all you choose to use.

It’s a good social responsibility thing for body recovery. So you don’t have to have a rescuer and their avalanche dog attached to a hovering helicopter for a sharp exit, like they did to recover David Llama and his team after the avalanche on Howse. But it doesn’t offer companion rescue, so as nearly everyone is dead after 30 minutes it’s not exactly a big life saver.
