The Bauman Bag provides a single-point suspension for lifting a patient during a hoist or short-haul evacuation. The Hoist model has adjustable length straps allowing the bag to be configured to your aircraft. The fixed length straps on the Short Haul model position the bag at the best aerodynamic angle for flight stability. Both bags can be used with backboards or litters. Less than 13 lbs. (6 kg), the Bauman Bag stores in an 11 in. by 21 in. (28 x 53 cm) stuff bag, reducing weight and storage space on the aircraft. The bag includes reflective tape and a pocket for a chemical light sticks for low light and night operations.
