A Great Emergency Pack


"We have used [the Rescue Padre & Patrol Padre] in several countries now and they have passed ALL tests." -- Hans Ostrem, Medical Director, Rock International Medical Affairs
"...A rugged pack that will take years of abuse... One of the most comfortable packs we have ever used..." --Franklin, TN, Fire Department and the Williamson Medical Center, in the International Police Mountain Bike Association Newsletter

"Dear Tough Traveler,
I am an Adirondack Guide, professional outdoor educator, ice climber, SAR instructor, civilian and military SAR Team member and a member of Power Bar Team Elite. I am an active guy. I decided to upgrade what I was using as a SAR pack and I saw your RESCUE PADRE at a homeland security show in Albany, NY. I could not believe the construction and detail of the pack! After having a couple of packs see double and triple duty for many years, I decided that I really needed to have a pack just for SAR. Finally, I drove to Schenectady and bought a RESCUE PADRE pack.

The pack has been on many searches now and tossed in and out of the back of my Jeep more times than I can remember. It carries everything I need and wears like iron. I constantly get comments on the pack and when someone else tries it on or takes a good look at it, they always have great things to say about it. It used to be just my old school leather climbing boots my friends would covet. Now I have to keep a watchful eye on my Tough Traveler SAR pack too! I am always kidding my friends about their "Gucci Gear" when they get something new or cutting edge. Now I have my own piece of "Gucci Gear"!
