Simple to use, for every situation

 

 
 
 

| Wednesday, May 14, 2014


Coatesville, PA - theEMSstore.com is proud to introduce one of Leatherman’s latest in a line of tools to support the military and first responders; the Raptor medical shears. The development of the Raptor was the result of extensive testing and feedback from military and civilian professionals around the country. Now you can equip yourself with the multiple functions the Raptor offers far beyond the shears alone.

The team at Leatherman worked closely with special operations medics and fire/EMT professionals to design the multi-functional, 420HC stainless steel medic shears. The multi-functional tools include: a strap cutter, oxygen wrench, ring-cutter, and carbide-tip glass breaker. Most impressive is the fact that all the extra features work whether the shears are open or folded closed.

The Raptor’s handle is glass-filled nylon providing comfort in hot or cold environments, and a strong grip in wet or bloody situations. Shear tension on the Raptor can be adjusted for personal preference and the patented folding/locking design enables compact storage without compromising strength.

Leatherman worked to limit the additional features in an effort to avoid complicating the use of the Raptor in chaotic, tense, life-threatening situations. Every feature on these shears were requested by the medics. Leatherman even took some features off per the medics insistence as well. The Raptor is really built for, and by, special operations medics and fire/EMT professionals.

The uniquely-molded sheath allows for storage in both the open and closed/folded position, as well as attachment on a MOLLE ladder system or belt. The sheath can also be rotated and locked at an optimal position for the user's space requirements or hand memory.

Order your own Raptor from theEMSstore today and experience the job-specific tools originally designed for military use and now available for civilian first-responder professionals.
