At 6.5 feet long, the stretcher is long enough to accommodate all operators and has a maximum carrying capacity of 400 lbs for both the operator and his/her gear. The stretcher has 5 handles per side to give each team a multitude of configurations for carrying a downed man. When paired with the Combat Carbon Poles (sold separately), you get the lightest semi-rigid expedient medical litter / stretcher available at only 3.5 lbs total weight. Combat Carbon Poles found here
Additionally, the litter collapses and zips together to form an essential multipurpose lightweight bag for operators to collect items such as Sensitive Site Exploitation (SSE) Material or gear from a downed man. The bag is augmented with a single adjustable strap for easy carry when loaded, a drawstring to secure the bag contents, and is small enough to fold up and be stored in a cargo pocket.
These collapsible Combat Carbon Poles are easily integrated with the Lightweight Integrated Field Transport (LIFT) System. Designed with this principle in mind, “Ounces Equal Pounds”! Weighing just 1.3 lbs a piece, a max carrying capacity of 400 lbs, and designed to collapse small enough to be worn on the back of any plate carrier, these poles shed weight without compromising capability for transporting casualties.
