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 $17.
Great and lightweight, simple design. Great to keep in a bag.
Handles held carrying a 260 pounder. Great price and appears to be well sewed. We did wear several holes in the fabric when dragging someone in full kit, but the litter still functions. Happy with the purchase.
For around 15$ you're getting a litter that otherwise would cost you hundreds and works just as well. You can't miss out on this.
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.
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.
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 )
My search is over, I love the GO Stretcher! It is compact enough to back-pack around or stash in a vehicle, but strong enough and big enough to carry a full sized man out over a long distance, and it is affordable! Perfect!!! I am getting several more GO Stretchers.
