Foxtrot™ DA Litter w/ Carrier (Black)
The Foxtrot™ DA provides the same compact versatile function as the original Foxtrot™ with an alternate strap method. With color coded side release buckles, the Foxtrot™ DA is lightning fast for high-risk casualty extractions.
One of the most physically and mentally challenging situations an individual can face is casualty evacuation. Casualties must be moved quickly and safely. In any scenario, every second wasted decreases the casualty's chance of a speedy recovery. The Foxtrot™ Litter provides an effective casualty evacuation platform that is quick and easy to employ and compact enough to accompany individuals on an assault or long movement. The Foxtrot™ Litter is small enough to attach to your kit or another bag, but is still functional in a combat or rescue environment. It provides a rapid means of casualty movement without compromising durability, flexibility, or the individual's ability to maneuver through the most demanding environments. Casualties can be dragged or carried off target without excess time spent rigging and securing. It also eliminates the wait time for a conventional litter to be brought from the breach point or a support vehicle. Features of the Foxtrot™ Litter:
- Light and Compact (4.6 lbs with carrier)
- Size allows movement of casualties through narrow passages and walkways such as on aircraft, buses, and trains
- Casualties can be sat up to make tight turns on stairwells and hallways
- Rapid deployment drag line already rigged to litter
- Multiple grab points ease passage through tight areas
- Quick secure straps
- Casualty is secure but accessible for reassessments and care
- Can be dragged or carried

I have the military version of this and it works perfectly. It's easy to deploy and get your patient onto quickly and moved to a safe location. I also have a 50' water rescue line attached to the head end portion of the litter so if someone gets pinned down by sniper fire I have a way to throw this at them like a water rescue throw line, if the injured can self rescue and get onto it litter, the litter can be pulled back to safety. If I was a medic on a patrol with the potential for sniper fire I would have this in my kit without question. This is not as heavy as a Skedco(18lbs) brand but that is what makes it perfect for lugging around and those situations that don't require the capabilities of the skedco.
