* The cometic is a low and long Inuit sled, pulled by one or more harnessed dogs and used for movement on hard snow or on ice.

This traditional means of transportation for the Inuit of the Canadian North was used to transport goods, food or hunting equipment.

The length of the sled is important to reduce “pitch” on uneven snow surfaces.

Of Inuit origin (Inuktitut language), the term cometic is known in the northeastern fringe of Quebec according to the Linguistic Atlas of Eastern Canada (Dulong, Bergeron, 1980).

The term cometic is also sometimes used to designate a toy sled or, further west, a "team of dogs".
