EMT in a Bag: This unique off-road ems backpack is designed to hold the gear of a fully equipped EMT, either for search-and-rescue or for events.

The frame and suspension system are created to take weight off the shoulders and back, and allow comfortable and well-balanced carrying. Specialized pockets and attachment points for all equipment make this the perfect pack for wilderness rescue, and also for the EMT who must monitor an event single-handedly, without backup equipment nearby. Additionally, this pack goes excellently to urban or suburban roadside accidents, and is also intended for first responders who must go up stair flights to reach patients.

"I have been using the Tough Traveler [Rescue Carrier] for some time now and I'm very happy with its performance to date. I have it with me every where I go and it's seen some pretty bad Trauma incidents and would not be with out it."-- Alan Thompson, writing from Baghdad, Iraq
