“Kent Fire & Rescue Service has been using Collins Nets Ltd for over 5 years after a rigorous evaluation process.

I hold training courses at Lee Valley White Water Centre (fortnightly).  The water conditions are challenging at this Olympic site.  Collins Drysuits have been durable, with unquestionable reliability that far exceeds any other suit I have used in the past 20 years.

We have 4 suits on every Rescue Fire Appliance for flood rescue, along with 60 suits issued to Swiftwater Rescue & boat teams.  A total of over 250 suits are in operational use.  The service back up from Collins Nets is seamless”

Alan Stallard, Water Safety Trainer – Kent Fire & Rescue Service

I think the thanks go to Collins Drysuits, kitting our (DorSAR) swift water rescue team out with fantastic quality Drysuits and other high standard water rescue equipment. A superb bespoke service.

“Galway Fire & Rescue Service has been using drysuits supplied by Collins Nets Ltd for the last 8 years.  The suits are used as part of our swift water rescue response in harsh conditions.

We have found the suits to be durable and reliable; we feel they are ideal for emergency service use.  The service provided by the company has been excellent”

“In the year 2000, Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service recognised the need for personal protective equipment when attending Water Related Incidents and because of that, invited a number of manufacturers to visit Cornwall to demonstrate and promote a range of water safety kit and equipment.

The presentation proved to be hugely beneficial and as a result of that engagement, we were able to use Collins Nets Ltd as a provider to the service of a range of PPE items of kit and equipment which included their Cordura Drysuits.

From the year 2001 Collins Nets Ltd has been providing the drysuits to the service and perhaps more importantly, has demonstrated a first class after sales service which still is evident to this date.

As one of the lead officers in the project, I would have no hesitation in endorsing their product.”
