Brooks-Range Mountaineering Rescue Sled Pro
Here's what other sites are saying:
Brooks-Range Pro Rescue sled features a bright yellow tarp of rip-stop nylon weighing a mere 19 ounces. This includes the straps for holding a victim securely in place, and for tying the tarp to the skis to become an integral part of the sled assembly.The stretcher bars are designed with slots cut in them so they can work as cross beams when mated with a pair of skis. The Pro Stretcher Bars are made of four cylinders of aircraft quality aluminum that fit inside each other so that they pack down to a single, nested 10-inch long cylinder.Five extra long 2-foot ski straps tie the skis, poles, and the expanded stretcher bars together to make a solid frame that wont fall apart under load. It all fits in a small, nylon envelope that practically disappears in your pack.DownloadsSled Assembly Instructions 274 KB

If you tour, guide, or patrol in seriously sketchy terrain, and you're serious about backcountry rescue operations, the Brooks-Range Mountaineering Rescue Sled Pro is an invaluable investment. The lightweight (under 1.5lbs), quick-deploying (assembles in under 2 minutes) and compact, self-contained Rescue Sled has only three parts: the two stretcher bars, and the sled itself, a foldable, durable, bright yellow PU-coated tarp. Using any pair of skis from 135cm to 205cm in length as the longitudinal supports, the Rescue Sled becomes a sturdy, towable platform for transporting an injured or unconscious victim securely out of the backcountry. It functions in varied snow and terrain far better than a simple bivy drag system, and provides greatly improved support for spinal injuries over soft sleds.
