In 2008 Dr. Sam found himself carrying an intrepid Danish woman with a broken ankle on a rocky trail in Greenland. The fireman carry was out of the question, as were stretchers and wheelchairs. It led to a year of sewing and prototyping and a couple simple products.
The Rescue Pack is a 6 liter, 950 gram, waist pack with internal straps designed to help one person to carry another. The pack does not make a rescuer stronger, nor a victim lighter. But the carry is far more comfortable for both. Dr. Sam sure could have used it in Greenland.
The Slishman Rescue Pack and Harness designed for:
- Tour operators
- Adventure racers
- Search and Rescuers
- Emergency medical personnel
- Hikers, hunters, rangers, scouts
