The Tactical SKED Stretcher is designed for military operator use during combat operations. It weighs 7 lbs without accessories, and 9 lbs with all accessories. When laid out, the Tactical SKED measures 6' 7" long x 22.5" wide x 1/10" thick.
The Tactical SKED comes in Coyote Brown and has COBRA® buckles throughout. There is a strap diagonally across the chest to secure the patient if the sled gets inverted. Other SKEDs do not need this strap because they are longer.
When rolled up, the Tactical SKED is 7" in diameter x 22.5" long. If it is secured across your ruck, you can easily go through a door without it hanging up. It is made of the same rugged plastic that all Skedco litters are made of, so it is extremely durable in the most extreme environment. The accessories include: a pair of horizontal lift slings, a steel carabiner to secure the ends of the slings together for hoisting into a helicopter, and a tow strap for “hands-free” dragging. The backpack is 24" long x 7" diameter.
When it is carried or hoisted, the Tactical SKED keeps your patient’s body straight. It will not bend in the middle. Because it is narrow, it forms an anatomical splint around the legs when the straps are pulled tight. The Tactical SKED is truly the most versatile of all lightweight stretchers.
