Agilite's New Rescue Litter/Sleep Pad


This does look like a handy piece of kit from Agilite.

The new Mat-Evac litter is a camping/shooting mat and rescue litter in one, Agilite officials maintain.

“For Recon troops and outdoor enthusiasts, the padding in the Mat-Evac is the difference between discomfort and the ability to sleep well outdoors. In winter, the high-density Israeli-made foam inside the Mat-Evac isolates you from the cold ground keeping you warm as well.”

In an emergency, the Mat-Evac becomes a rescue litter that is on hand to carry a casualty. The padding in the Mat-Evac also helps keeps the wounded operator or hiker off the cold ground and more comfortable while waiting for extract, Agilite officials say.

The tying straps feature small mil-spec side release buckles and are designed and spaced to thread through the MOLLE loops of any vest or backpack to be attached and detached quickly without the need for any exterior straps or attachments.

The Mat-Evac is 61 inches long, 27.5 inches wide and .5 inches thick. It will bear up to 700 pounds. It’s available in OD green, red or black and retails for about $85.
