SOF Select 18 – MATBOCK Introduces New Material for J-LIFT and R-LIFT Litters

Last week, I stopped by MATBOCK’s shop in Virginia Beach to check out their new Ghost Heavy material. It boasts 750 lbs sq in tensile strength and over 400 lbs tear strength.

Previously, the J-LIFT was made from Trelleborg material, weighing 36 oz.
Now, it’s made from MATBOCK’s new Ghost Heavy material and weighs just 12.4 oz. You can also see how small the litter folds up, fitting in this pouch.

So far, they haven’t been able to get the material to absorb anything, meaning it can be deconned over and over. It also features all Kevlar stitching.

The panels are big enough for wrist carry and it accepts poles.

The material is also now on the R-LIFT l, bringing the weight down to 5.5 lbs with the backpack.

This is an inline change for both systems; same part number, same price.

    Cuben fiber or similar? Awesome stuff. It would be good to see more of it in the market, it might bring prices down somewhat.
