Land-Shark: In Water & On-Land Survival Shelter -Tactical (landshark)

Land Shark: On Land & In Water Survival Shelter System

Designed to provide exceptional shelter in land AND in water; the Land Shark brings survival shelters to a new level. The Land Shark is constructed of a micro-thin layer of aluminized film laminated to a resilient, composite reinforced, ripstop material. The aluminized coating reflects up to 80% of radiated body heat. The tightly-woven ripstop reinforcing seam construction resists tears and punctures, even from boots and sticks. The Land Shark is completely windproof, waterproof and acts as a vapor barrier. The Land Shark Instant Survival Shelter measures only 6 in. x 8 in. x 1 in. when packed and weighs a mere 22 oz. (0.623 kg.). When needed, it opens to a windproof, waterproof, heat-retaining and roomy 38 in x 80 in (96.52 cm x 203.2 cm).


Military-Grade Construction
Tightly woven, ripstop reinforced waterproof seams reduce punctures or tears during use.

Composite Reinforced, Ripstop Material
Strengthens Land Shark reducing punctures and tears, even while user is wearing heavy boots.

Aluminized Film

Combats hypothermia and eliminates infrared emissions for stealth and evasion from high-tech, body heat detection equipment. The aluminized material is also radar reflective for search aircraft, search & rescue teams and high-speed vessels moving at night over water.

Heat Retention
A micro-thin layer of aluminized film reflects up to 80% of radiated body heat – highly effective in combating hypothermia on land or in the water with a life vest on.

Vapor Barrier
Land Shark is completely windproof and waterproof. This barrier prevents body oils, waste and blood from exiting the bag when used in water.

International Orange
Land Shark’s eye-catching color is visible to search & rescue teams from miles away. In water, it provides more than 20 times the visibility of a person in just a life vest.

An Instant Shelter
Simply cut a Land Shark along the seams and prop up its sides to create an incredibly visible, waterproof shelter, which also protects from the sun’s rays.

Reversible - Orange - Camouflage
The International Orange color makes an excellent emergency signal, readily visible to search & rescue teams from great distances. Digital Camo provides visual masking for avoiding detection.

Eyelets help attach the 550 paracord when making a shelter out of Land Shark.

550 Paracord Drawstring
Used to create a hood or to close the shelter entirely for maximum protection and body heat retention. In the water, the closed bag helps prevent water ingestion in heavy seas.

Sea-Dog® Clip and Survival Whistle
Integral tether easily links multiple survivors together during a survival situation at sea. Creates a larger target for search & rescue teams to locate on open water, as well as a whistle to attract attention from great distances.

The Land Shark is actually two different kinds of Instant Survival Shelter. Both sides provide you with the same lifesaving thermal protection, however, one is made to attract visual attention (International Orange), while the other keeps you hidden (Digital Camo).

Thermal cloaking keeps you hidden in plain sight.
Evading detection can mean the difference between life and death. Land Shark’s inherent thermal cloaking abilities reduce the user’s infrared signature to undetectable levels, even while using some of the most advanced commercial and military-grade infrared detection equipment.

Military and Soldier of Fortune tested: ZERO IR SIGNATURE
A 30-minute test using the highly rated FLIR, Inc. Model 2000AB helicopter-mounted IR detector, operating in the 8-14 micron wavelength range, failed to locate three individuals concealed in Land Shark bags. Soldier of Fortune magazine tested the Land Shark bag using the Life-Finder hand-held IR detector. The magazine’s testers were also unable to locate three individuals concealed in Land Shark bags during the 30-minute test. After testing, Soldier of Fortune magazine concluded that: The new StealthBag is essential gear for those in a SERE (Survival Evasion Resistance Escape) scenario whose survival depends on their ability to hide not only from visual detection but [from] sophisticated infrared detectors as well.

An increasingly important tool in your arsenal:
With the increased use of infrared detection equipment by both military and law enforcement personnel, infrared cloaking capability has become an extremely important evasion tactic. The Land Shark Instant Survival Shelter reduces the wearer’s infrared signature to undetectable levels while remaining a compact and affordable survival tool.
