    I only had to use Asherman seals a few of times in my career, but don't remember adhesion being a problem. All but one were with women or kids - so no issues with a squaddy's hairy chest, but it can't just be that can it? Did they use a different adhesive back in the 90s?

Pole litters are heavy, take time to set up, and offer a little more support. A Sked stretcher is quite large but can support the casualty well, but not as well as a very heavy and bulky basket stretcher.

    I want to talk with some people who have had first hand experience with evacuating wounded from the battlefield and what improvements need to be done.
    The trick would be to make a portable stretcher rigid. I've often wondered why someone hasn't tried to do what an inflatable splint does - taking a mini bottle of compressed air perhaps (as with a D-SMB for recreational diving).

    The big issue with the Asherman from what I was taught was the seal sticking to a wet surface ie blood etc...
    Were the body surfaces dry on your patients?

    Through and through GSWs in sub-zero temperatures, so yes. That probably explains it.
