A medical go bag designed for comfort, versatility and strength.
The Need: A detachable bag to enable the medic to grab and go with medical mission essential tools. Medics are encumbered with unwieldy med bags in a fight-light tactical environment.
The Answer / Description: Designed as a satchel go bag that is contoured to hug the body and can be worn as a shoulder bag, waist pack, fanny pack, briefcase, ruck lid, vest pouch or vehicle bag. The S.O.TECH Mission Go Bag fulfills multiple mission requirements. It can be easily configured as a shoulder bag, and with a fold and a snap, it converts into a waist/fanny pack that rides below body armor. Stowing the shoulder straps in the rear pocket configures the bag as a briefcase utilizing stow-able carrying handles or as a large vest pouch for front or back wear using the PALS/MOLLE compatible Flex-Tab™ attachment system (U.S. Patented). These tabs can also secure the bag to a larger pack. A contoured shoulder strap, padded back plate and sleek design with rounded edges provide comfort required for long missions. Thick shoulder strap, reinforced attachment points and large buckles provide durability required in modern combat environments, while economic use of high-tech materials minimizes the bag weight as part of the soldier’s load. Logically placed and enlarged buckles and zipper pulls provide ease of operation in stressful operations and poor weather.
The Mission Go Bag received its name because of its ability to facilitate numerous missions – survival go bag, medical bag, explosive breacher bag, sniper bag, EOD tech bag, tool bag, and laptop bag (designed for military issue laptops and others of similar size, 11” wide x 8 1/2” tall x 2” thick). The bag is equipped with a large zippered main compartment and a bellowed zippered front pocket. The main compartment internally has two 1000 ml IV bag pouches, a flat pouch and a large loop/pile panel to accept modular inserts. Front zippered compartment has Velcro field for pouch organizer and small items. MOLLE webbing on front for adding small pouches. Large buckles for easy disconnect and wide shoulder strap for comfortable carry.
