My Pulk Sled System.

Post by Woods Walker » Wed Mar 21, 2018 10:51 pm

I know it's Spring but winter still has a hold on much of the USA. So figured before the warm weather moves in this is a good time to show my pulk sled system. A pulk sled is a load bearing sled used to more easily carry heavier loads over snow and ice. Often employed to re supply hunting cabins and other such duties. I use one myslef for setting up camps which might be too much if carried in on my back. The sled is a good tool for bring resources to camp such as wood and water. Might be useful even in a bug out or bug in preparedness planing.

Taking a look at the system.

Sled poles and attachment hardware.

The sled.

The harnesses shown in the video are a Molle FLC with Molle belt and Molle 1 pack harness. The pockets are Molle Medic and SAW pouches.

The traces or poles. I like to run them crossed.

They attach to the sled like this.

Which then attach to the Molle harness belt like this. I used paracord and a weight bearing biner.

The load gets secured via these reflective loops. I could have run the cord through the holes around the entire sled which is easier but wanted to try this.

Image

Image

I only needed this one strap to secure the EMR pack but could of used shock or paracord. When it comes to sleds lower center of gravity tends to be best. Too top heavy and it will roll.

Image

That's about it. This isn't rocket science as it's just a sled attached to a harness with poles. The purpose of the poles are for greater control maneuvering and going down hill. Here was my camp. I needed bug out from the woods because of deteriorating conditions in terms of falling trees. The Pulk worked good for that. LOL!

Thanks for looking.

Also a great way to bring resources back to camp or a cabin. Thanks for looking!

Yes that's possible however over some ground a sled made for snow tends to be a problem without snow. I learned this when pulk camping only to have my snow melt. It scraped along and sucked. But over some ground it was ok.
