It is a little bigger than I thought but it is also better made than the expected, Solid
My wife and I are both LEOs and have several 'medical kits' from our basic IFAK on up. We were looking for a light-weight, sturdy, not bulky 'litter' and found it with this Rescue Essentials QuikLitter™. The price-point was good and the litter well within our expectations.
For the price, you can't ask for a better litter. Serviceable and disposable! Won't break the bank and perfect for emergency situations.
Perfect for Rescue Task Force active shooter incidents. We pair them up with the Conterra POW Triage bag, inexpensive and use
Our CERT team uses these in training and several members have purchased them for their home or neighborhood cache.
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.
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.
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.
