The LONGBOW emergency operations pack has achieved legendary status in Conterra's fabulous line of EMS and rescue products. It was originally designed for the U.S. Air Forces Para Rescue Technicians. The Longbow is ergonomically designed with a vacuformed Kydex frame to ride like its part of you, whether you are rappelling, skiing or crawling. It has a large zippered medical supplies compartment which is separate from the main pocket. The longbow is hydration compatible and has numerous outside attachment points and ski carriers. This is the perfect pack for search and rescue, ski patrol, or tactical operations where going light and lean is essential. It carries skis or snowboards better than any other pack we've seen.
Weight: 4 lbs.
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.

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!"
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.
