Gear: Conterra Longbow Emergency Operations Pack

Conterra’s Description: 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 rappeling, 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. Carrys skis or snowboards better than any other pack we’ve seen. Volume: 2,700ci Weight: 4 lbs Our Experience: Like the Longbow Ranger; very versatile, light and comfortable, but smaller and tighter to the body. The hydration pocket fits a two liter bag. Excellent day pack for hiking, skiing, or mountain biking when you don’t need to carry a lot of bulky clothing. I use the Longbow Ranger for a winter SAR pack, and the Longbow for the summer. Comes in Orange/Black, SWAT Black, OD Green and Red/Black.
