Originally designed for ski patrol and mountain rescue use, this "one size fits all" radio harness will instantly adjust to hold any radio snugly to your chest without the use of multiple straps or buckles found on lesser quality harnesses.
The vertical orientation of the radio improves reception, extends antenna life, and reduces the chance of chest injury during a fall. The unique suspension system virtually guarantees that your harness will not bounce or swing, even while pounding moguls or climbing caged ladders.
The harness features all Cordura construction, a large bellows cargo pocket, pen pouch, and twin elastic antenna keepers. A must for SAR and MCI applications.
Storage Pocket measures 7.5 in. Tall x 5 in. Wide x 2 in. Deep.
*Radio not included.
Designed for the medic or technician who will not compromise on balance or agility, this larger version of the award winning Adjusta-pro radio chest harness is really a tool-carrying platform.
Lighter and cooler than a load bearing vest, the Tool Chest is built entirely out of Cordura nylon, and can carry a wide assortment of items. Its large cargo pocket hinges open to reveal a multitude of dividers and elastic keepers. The top flap has an 'hourglass' holster for instant access to trauma shears. Directly under the cargo pocket are two side mount pockets for multi tools, gloves, etc. There is even an elastic keeper for a Mini Mag or Laser products flashlight. Of course the Tool Chest also carries any radio or cell phone in complete comfort and security.
The 2 inch elastic & web suspension guarantees that the Tool Chest will ride as well as the Adjusta-pro when skiing, climbing caged ladders, or crawling into overturned vehicles. Whether you are a flight medic, telephone lineman, or a racing crew specialist, the Tool Chest will make your life easier.
*Penlight, radio, and trauma shears not included.
Cargo Pocket Dimensions:
7.75 in. Tall x 5.75 in. Wide x 4 in. Deep at the top, tapering down at the bottom.
The Scarab represents five years of research and testing by Rick Lipke and the design team at Conterra. It was born out of the need for a small, simple device that could easily control heavy rescue loads, as well as excel at pick offs, twin rope systems and other general rescue techniques. The Scarab does all this and more. With two models available, the Scarab is the perfect choice for both Fire/Rescue and back country rescue environments: Incredibly strong; Does not twist the rope; Instantly adjustable friction (just wrap a horn); Lower 600 lb loads with two fingers; Super easy lock off; Easy to use, right or left handed; Single and double rope capable; Attach rope without unclipping from anchor. The Scarab TI Ultra light alpine rescue tool: Machined from solid Titanium plate. Works with 6mm to 11 mm rope. Weight: 185g (6.6 oz). The Scarab FR Ultra versatile general rescue tool. Machined from solid 303 stainless plate. Works with 9mm to 13 mm rope. Weight: 385g (13.8 oz) meets NFPA 1983 (06 ED) 'G' (general use) FOR 12.5mm ROPE. The Scarab has endured over five years of drop and slow pull testing as well as undergoing extensive heat and wear studies utilizing Conterra's strength is greater than 40kN. In real world tests with Nylon rescue ropes, the ropes fail at the nose of the Scarab at about their knotted strength (just like most other descent control devices). When pulling a 12.7mm rescue rope on a tied off Scarab, the rope breaks at about 27kN, which easily exceeds the 22kN strength rating that NFPA calls out for to rate class 'G' for descent control devices. In addition to a battery of slow pull and drop tests, the Scarab has undergone extensive heat and wear studies. One device was tested by pulling over a mile of dirty rope through it under rescue sized tension, with temperature reading thermocouples being monitored at several locations during pulls. At 2kN of tension, and a lowering speed of 10M per minute, the Scarab maintained a frame temperature at about 100 degrees C. To our knowledge, the Scarab is the only descent control device to have been tested to this degree. Scarab is a registered trademark of Conterra Inc. All rights reserved. Built by Conterra Precision, their own in house ISO 9001 certified facility.
The Redesigned Conterra Edgebot is an ultra compact, high efficiency roller that is packed with features. It is uniquely shaped to work on railings, logs, rocks, guard rails, parapits, or anywhere else that friction needs to be addressed. It can be hobbled down with rope or webbing, hung by biners, or even slid along tracks made by 8mm utility cord. The Edgebot features stainless steel axles, bronze bearings, aircraft aluminium tires and powder coated side plates. Triangular openings allow biners to redirect off angle ropes. The underside is curved to work on varied surfaces, and sports 'crampons' which help with guard rails and parapits. Built in USA, right in Conterra's ISO 9001:2008 CERTIFIED machine shop.
This updated version of our most popular product of all time comes with a new sleek patented adjustment system that works with any radio.
A great new feature is that the RCH2 comes complete with our new FOUR function EMS rescue light that nests in a custom front pouch specifically designed for it. The light is positioned to work for you while your harness is on, and is controllable right through the harness fabric! You can read a map, check medication or walk a trail with this chest mounted light.

The padding that usually comes with the Pelican or Nanuk cases is not very efficient for medical use. Conterra designed this cassette for use in medical situations where "camera padding" just won't do.
The Cassette Organizer is built from super-thin aircraft aluminum and powder coated. It also has multiple hook and loop adjustable metal dividers. This easy-to-clean unit gives much more usable space for medications or EMS equipment than foam or plastic dividers.
*Designed for the Nanuk 940 and Pelican 1550 case.
This case system is tough. This case is pre-loaded with the Trauma Insert and aluminum Cassette Organizer. The hinged lid front has five slash pockets, 15 elastic loops, and two vinyl zippered pouches. The lid back walls can be rigged for narrow gear, or report clipboards, while the bottom cassette delivers eleven strong adjustable divisions. Your choice of either a Nanuk 940, or Pelican 1550. Exterior dimensions: 20.6 in. x 16.9 in. x 8.1 in.
The famous Crossbow rapid response pack was a staple of the rescue community for nearly twenty years before Conterra retired it several years ago but, due to overwhelming customer response, they have brought it back with an improved design and upgraded materials. The result is the new Crossbow II; a great pack for mountain bike patrol, eastern ski patrolling, or hasty SAR teams.
The ALS Extreme pack is a truly unique animal. It is designed to meet the needs of EMTs and Paramedics who perform in severe environments such as skiing, rappelling, riding snowmobiles, or helitack insertions.
The ALS Extreme sports six zippered compartments, including a removable top pocket, a fold away suspension system, and is built entirely from Cordura and high count Ballistic nylon.
It has ultra strong side handles, wand tunnels, and a hydration bladder sleeve. The body of the pack is very narrow to allow a full range of movement when on the rescuer's back. A truly unique feature of this pack is when accessing the main pocket, the back pockets rotate to the sides, creating a high degree of organization at your fingertips, and rotates back out of the way for transport. The main pocket zips open via huge #10 coil zippers to reveal a large compartment, completely lined with hook and loop compatible fabric (which will accept any of our MOS organizers), twin movable dividers, and a flap sporting two medium organizer pockets (you can add more). A nice feature of this pack is that the bottom end is designed for personal survival gear. By moving the divider, you can adjust just how much personal space you need, or remove the divider and use the space for medical equipment (You can also add side pockets to extend the range of your pack even further).
The fold-out suspension, coupled with a full aluminum frame, ensures a comfortable, stable ride, every time.
We absolutely guarantee that this is the best pack of its kind that you can buy.
Colours available: Yellow & Black, Tactical Black, O.D. Green, or Coyote Brown.
Volume: 4,200 cubic inches.
*Medical supplies shown are not included.
This is the medical response pack carried by one of our employees when working as dismounted medic with the Canadian Forces and he constantly raves about it.
"It rides comfortably on your back (or front when also carrying a ruck) and the fold-out side pockets allow for extreme organization of your treatment modules. The top flap can be removed and used as a stripped-down response pack (I use it to hold an IFAK and ASR kit) when the whole bag isn't required. When coupled with the Conterra velcro loops, every piece of critical kit is organized to the point that I can grab the right tool even in the dark and under pressure. I love this bag!"
Conterra took the incredible design of the Edgbot one step further by making it articulate! The result is the new Clampbot, that conforms to whatever you attach it to. It has 28 mini crampon points that firmly grip on pipes, railings and trees. The Clampbot can be placed with 8 mm cord, just like the Edgebot, as well as having the capability of redirecting the rope with a carabiner. The truly great feature of the Clampbot is its ability to 'grasp' thin railings when used with the Rail Roller attachment. The Clampbot is built with eight Oilite bronze bearings over stainless steel axles, with hourglass shaped aircraft aluminum tires. Despite these features the Clampbot is still crazy light, and fits in the palm of your hand. The powder coated articulating side plates are also aircraft grade aluminum. Built at Conterra's ISO 9001 certified machine shop to guarantee you absolute top quality and dependability.
The Conterra REACH rigging pack is about as high tech as a pack can get. The REACH is built from Ballistics Nylon and diamond plate pack cloth. It sports two heavily reinforced handles (one that is oriented with clip buckles for hauling purposes). The side pockets open with huge #10 YKK zippers to reveal multiple dividers and organizers for your accessory gear. The main pouch carries up to 100M (300ft) of 12.5 mm rescue rope. The back of the REACH has curved hide-away shoulder straps.
A truly unique feature of the REACH is that it is specially designed so that it can be attached to the Conterra LS response pack. With this combo a responder can arrive on scene with one pack, rig a rappel, detach the LS from the REACH and get down to a patient with the gear needed to keep the patient alive. An excellent choice for industrial and fire based responders. Made in the USA, this pack comes with a Lifetime guaranteed.
Measurements: 25 in. Tall x 16 in. Wide x 7.5 in. Deep (Main Compartment).
Side Pockets: 19 in. Tall x 7.5 in. Wide x 4 in. Deep.
*Reach Rigging pack with LS medical pack attached is also available. Rescue hardware and rope not included.
The Conterra Pelican Med insert fits in Pelican cases #1520 or #1550, or Nanuk 940 or larger cases. It was originally designed for Seattle Medic One, who pioneered the use of pelican cases for street EMS. The insert itself is made of tough vinyl window material sewn directly on to fluid proof plastic, making clean up much easier than other brands. The insert is made with all the quality and design innovation that has made Conterra the leader in EMS soft case construction. Medical supplies not included.
The Conterra Trauma insert fits Pelican Cases #1550 or larger cases, or Nanuk 940 or larger cases. Built with the same legendary quality that Conterra puts in all of their products, the Trauma Insert sports multiple pockets and hinged organization platforms. It attaches to the inside top of your case (you supply the case) with adhesive back hook and loop (we supply). The insert accepts multiple combinations of the Conterra MOS compatible organizers, allowing you to customize your box for trauma, Meds, etc. The Pelican/Nanuk Lid insert hinges down so that both sides can be utilized.
Over the years, we have performed dozens of roadside rescues using vehicles as anchors or changes of direction. We have attached to wheels, tied through frame holes, and even seen folks girth hitch tow balls! It was always time-consuming and stressful guessing the safety of our attachment.
The Conterra Hitch-Plate answers the question of exactly where and how to anchor to your rig when performing a vehicle-based rope rescue.
The Hitch-Plate is beautifully made and "wicked strong." It is CNC machined entirely from billet aluminum in Conterra's ISO 9001 certified fab shop. It sports five large rigging holes and will fit in any 2 in. vehicle receiver. (Please check and make sure that your receiver is 2.00 inches)
It has an ingenious system that keeps the pin and cotter attached to the device so that they can't be lost and comes with its own padded ballistic nylon case with grab handle and hang loop.
Meets NFPA Standard 1983 (2012 ed.) and is UL certified. Rated for General Use (G) MBS 50 kN.
(For rope rescue only. Not for vehicle recovery or towing.)
Built entirely from O.D. Cordura Nylon, with a padded main handle and a high strength top handle that can be used as a haul point for raising / lowering, this specialized pack was designed on the basic USAR platform for use by the U.S. Special Forces.
This beautifully designed kit is built to work out of while being worn by the rescuer. It has been carefully designed so that nothing “flops open” hiding access to other parts of the pack or hindering rescuer movement. The pack also does not cover up or hinder load-bearing vests, or radio chest harnesses. It also will not hide identification/ IMS vests. The POW™ pack can also be easily worn with an SCBA, making it (we think) superior to other products on the market.

Contrerra is proud to offer the most advanced vacuum immobilizer available today. It is well known that Vacuum mattress technology is the state-of-the-art for patient protection and comfort.
The VSB sports many unique features that are just not found on other vacuum mattresses.
The ergonomically-designed VSB is built with special polyethylene beads that will not break down over time like the polystyrene used in other brands. In addition, the beads are compartmentalized with a series of baffles, which means you will never have to spread out or distribute the beads when applying the device.
The straps and handles are movable and removable for replacement or cleaning. In fact, the VSB can even be placed in a commercial washer or extractor for cleaning.
The VSB has a built-in pelvic binding system that is quickly movable to align with the patient’s pelvis.
Lastly, the valve system is a marvel of simplicity, just plug the hose in, pull a vacuum, and pull the hose out.
The VSB comes in two sizes; the 7 ft model for regular street use, and the lighter 6ft model for use where weight and size are at a premium, such as SAR and flight use.
Conterra has partnered with Bo Renberg, the original inventor of the Vacuum mattress to offer this unique device and are built in the USA by Bo Renberg of Medtech Sweden. Bo is a pioneer of vacuum immobilization technology, and Conterra is very proud of their partnership with him.
This fine immobilization tool is guaranteed against defects in materials or workmanship.
*Even though these tools are built to the highest standards in the industry, we cannot guarantee against leakage or holes caused during use, because of the nature of pre-hospital care (so keep them out of the rose bushes!).
