If you're looking for a temporary light duty use quick litter to get patients out fast this will work. It is not designed to drag patients along the ground or rough surfaces where they could be injured again. The non-rigid litter is made from nylon webbing and fabric with hand-holds for lifting the patient off of the ground. If you want a litter that you can drag patients check out the Foxtrot DA it may work for you. If you are in the veterinary field this could also be used to move mammals, reptiles and aquatic species of the appropriate size and also used as an over bandage for large animal thoracic injuries and abdominal support. Our is kept with our primary medical response pack inside a Lancer quick-dump pouch so we can quickly deploy it then use it to stage our equipment on as we attend to the patient, then transfer the patient onto the quick litter or another form of transport.

We purchased 11 of these Quik Litters and they did the job for sure. We used them during our Active Shooter training, and they were a big help getting the simulated patients out of the area.
Would not buy.

I Used this product in training to see how it works. While using it to pickup a 150 lbs person the litter ripped. The manufacturer of the litter said it rated for 500 lbs. I was lucky it ripped has i picked up my victim not after i picked him he could of fell to ground. This product is for life saving and the failure I had in training could have been life threatening if I was using it for real. Do not buy!!!
Rescue Essentials Response:
The non-woven fabric backing is NOT part of the structure that holds the patient. It can tear without any danger to the patient being transported. It would be nearly impossible for the litter to fail to hold any weight up to 500 lbs, as the structural component is heavy nylon webbing, not the thin non-woven substrate.
Har to believe $16.49

Great kit for an advanced bag or FAK. Might not stand up to daily hard use but that is not what it is intended for. Hard to believe less than $17.
Good item to have

Handles held carrying a 260 pounder. Great price and appears to be well sewed. We did wear several holes in the fabric when dragging someone in full kit, but the litter still functions. Happy with the purchase.

For around 15$ you're getting a litter that otherwise would cost you hundreds and works just as well. You can't miss out on this.
Don't miss out on this one

Was blown away by the quality materials used to make this product. Exceeds the quality of more expensive models I looked at. Can't beat the price. Light weight. Easy to pack. Anyone roughing it will be glad to have this along if something goes wrong on the trail.
Light and Portable

Normally our team has to lug out a few vintage litters when we are called out. They are rather bulky, probably because they need to last. This litter is a nice alternative because we really don't have to think much past the next one or two deployments and we can look at a more disposable product in favor of portability. I was able to take it out of the packaging and literally fold it into a simple medic bag I use for a "go" kit. Glad I bought it.
GREAT PRICE! one time use...

It's very sturdy but has no casualty retention straps(those can be improvised). I wouldn't expect to use this more than once if the casualty is badly wounded and hypovolemic(losing fluids) and the nylon bottom has too much friction to be used as a SKED litter in rough terrain(dragged over more than a short distance) BUT THE PRICE!.. for one time use it's unbeatable. (If R.E. lowered the price though... ;P )
