Modern SOF Warriors need to place critical medical supplies at the point of wounding, notin the Medic’s bag. But from there the pouch needs to be mounted strategically—out of the way during fighting and movement, minimizing size, while remaining accessible. And at the time of injury, assuming the injured personnel is weak and disoriented, the opening mechanism needs to be easily found and opened with a single motion, and then the contents need to be easily accessed with the ability to be removed and accessed independently. While a space for a tourniquet is preferred for a secondary tourniquet, a separate tourniquet carrier is ideal for mounting it on the chest for easiest access.
The Rapid First Aid Pouch IFAK can be strategically mounted horizontally or vertically on a vest or belt and it only takes two MOLLE columns and can be mounted on the side or back. A stencil cross is embroidered for view by the wearer or buddy on the upper corner. A double hook and loop flap provides double retention with a quick rip pull strap for single pull opening. A ribbed plastic ball is attached to the end of the strap for easy identification in a panic. The single pull the double zippers open but only half way down the pouch so the contents can’t fall out. The pull-out panel has a pocket with a magazine retention style double elastic over the top retainer band with a pull tab. The pull-out panel is secured by the bucket shape of the pouch and Velcro on the upper back. Main pocket incorporates two slots for NPA and catheter. The pull out follows the modularity of the TMMCS. A tourniquet can be mounted inside the pouch lid for quick access.
A separate tourniquet carrier is available providing full protection of the tourniquet while opening with a similar single pull with a similar ribbed plastic ball. Strap pulls the tourniquet forward for easy purchase. This pouch can be mounted on the vest front, a belt, the side of the RFAP IFAK, or over a shoulder strap.
