Books: ProGuides

The ultimate in pocket reference books for professional search and rescue.

Each coil-bound guide is printed on 100% waterproof paper that can be repeatedly soaked, washed (up to 60°C) and disinfected without damage. Unlike many other 'waterproof' notebooks that rely on coated paper, ProGuides are printed on polymer sheets using our own unique process - they can be written on, are resistant to abrasion and tearing, and will not stick together after months festering in a damp pocket. We use the latest ditigal printing technology, with crystal-clear text and graphics specifically designed to be legible in all lighting conditions. Designed to deliver in the worst conditions possible.

  • Rugged plastic covers protect the ProGuide, and smooth corners protect your pocket.
  • Unique measurement overlays specific to each subject.
  • Corrosion-proof non-magnetic plastic coil binding.
  • A6 (105mm x 148mm) page size fits neatly in uniform and trouser pockets, including Wolfpack/Molle USAR harnesses.
  • Pages can be written on with ballpoint pens, markers, chinagraph, etc.
  • Content is fully compliant with established standards and protocols, and is written by world-leading experts in each field.
  • Cutting-edge computer-generated artwork is clear and easy-to-understand even in extreme conditions and low light.
  • Branded covers and custom inserts available on request, subject to a small fee or minimum volume.
