Recalled Via Ferrata Sets: The following via ferrata sets have been subject to a recall notice in the last few years. These recalls appear to be due to the manufacturers involved underestimating the amount of wear and tear on via ferrata sets that are regularly hired out. A good reason for buying your own perhaps?!
