The Recovery Handle™ sets the standard for emergency casualty evacuation and recovery in non-permissive environments. We are proud to have teamed up with the Direct Action Resource Center to realize their long standing vision and innovative design. The system provides a reliable and repeatable method for dragging a casualty off of the “X” or away from the objective. Unlink other drag handle systems it transfers the force of the evacuation to the hips of the casualty. This prevents the plate carrier from striking them in face, or cutting off their airway. Because the strap deploys to a greater length it allows the operator performing the evacuation to stand straight up which prevents fatigue and helps maintain situational awareness. The Recovery Handle™ mounts directly to your MOLLE compatible vest and can be deployed in seconds with a quick pull of the handle. The Recovery Handle™ internally retains the excess webbing that would normally be tucked into your MOLLE loops, giving you a clean and snag free solution. The system can easily be repackaged which makes it ideal for resetting the handle while preforming multiple iterations of training.

If you have ever had to move casualties out of harm's way you know how difficult it can be to haul all that weight. This innovation makes it much easier on your body by eliminating that awkward bending to grab someone's gear that is directly attached to their rig. I have tested it a few times and I am impressed.
This piece of kit is absolutely essential for any Mil/LE action guy or gal. If you're a responsible armed citizen that trains often and understands the philosophy of employment for this, you need one too.
