About Us


Mountain Rescue Gear was created to bring quality gear at a reasonable price to rescue groups and their members. We also sell Fire Gear, Climbing Gear and Outdoor Gear at very reasonable prices.

My name is Tony Talbott. I am the owner of Mountain Rescue Gear.com. I moved to the Kern River in the Southern Sierras in 1978. I joined Kern Valley Search and Rescue kernvalleysearchandrescue.com in 1987. We are a very busy volunteer group with anywhere from 25 to 125 call outs and about 30 trainings  year, and I have about a 95% attendance, from mountain calls to river and lake calls. If you cant reach us we might be on a rescue call or a training, please leave a message and I will get back to you as soon as possible. I started buying equipment for the team after about 5 years of being in the group.

In 1996, My wife and I bought a general store in Kernville, on the Kern River. I started selling Climbing Gear and then started becoming a dealer for some Rescue Gear. I started buying gear to try it out, then carrying what I liked, and selling to the group and team members.

I came up with the idea to start an online store and sell Search and Rescue Gear at the best price I can, and  here we are.

We ship US Postal Serice
