Rikki Tik Evacuation Rescue Harness
Named for the famous story featuring a mongoose named Rikki Tikki who exhibited great speed. Now a commonly used phrase used by the US Marine Corps meaning "RIGHT NOW!". When the need arises, the Rikki Tik is ready for the challenge. Easily stowed in a pack, patrol vest or even fanny pack. Just pull it out and in a matter of seconds you are harnessed up and ready to go to work. Our Rikki Tik harness is designed for Lift Evacuation, as an emergency victim harness and a variety of other professional rescue uses. The Rikki Tik is a true "one size fits all" harness and is constructed of 1.75" industrial nylon webbing with a 6,000 pound breaking strength. We didn't skimp when it comes to quality anywhere on this harness. All buckles are genuine AustriAlpin quick release COBRA buckles that will not release under load and have a load capacity of over 4,000 pounds (18kN). We even included a handy gear loop on the waist belt for those extra carabiners and gear. When it comes to a compact seat harness, the Rikki Tik lives up to its name.
Awesome, As a ski patroller and ground search & rescue tech.I use it for ski lift self rescue and plan to use it in my SAR duties as well.
Perfect for quickly securing victims/patients/guests. Simple to connect & adjust; much easier to manipulate the straps than other types (eg. RescueTECH or Yates). Works especially well when used to secure a patient inside a toboggan or rigid litter basket.
