Rescue Sled XP

Weight: 590 g  


Rescue Sled XP

A multi-purpose rescue tarp for mountain guides, ski guides, professional skiers and backcountry adventurers. Tested in conjunction with the New Zealand Mountain Guides Association.

A combination of SIL nylon (on the sides) and coated X-Pac composite fabric (for the base) have been used to create a waterproof, durable and versatile piece of mountain equipment. Careful attention has been given to every detail, to ensure the tarp is lightweight (so you actually take it on your trip!) without compromising strength.

Multiple uses include: rescue sled, 4-5 bothy bag, 2 person bivvy bag, classic tarp, ground sheet.

Sled strapping kits are sold separately - if you are travelling in glaciated terrain or with a rope, you can opt to use your own cords and rope instead.

Tarp loops can be added using your own cord via the reinforced eyelets around the perimeter of the tarp - this saves weight and bulk.

Please note that this product is still undergoing some changes/improvements, so may be different to the versions sold previously. This product can only be shipped to New Zealand and Australia.

This tarp is based on an original design by Alpine Threadworks - for all Northern Hemisphere enquiries, please contact Neil Warren
