I embarked on a mission to build my own IFAK. I would pick my own items, making sure they’re the best. This pouch is a bit bigger that I expected but it fits the bill just great!
This is a great add on pouch for a blowout kit, on any molle equipped backpack. This "rip away" pack is just the right size for holding the necessary life saving components like Israeli bandages, pressure wraps, and clotting sponges. It also has an outside pocket that's perfect for a C.A.T. TQ.
I have all of my eberlestock backpacks outfitted with one.
This indiTAK is a great little bag. Very stuffy sturdy, easy to open and just the right size. The external TQ pockets fit just right and the hook and loop was high quality. Eberlestock really knows what they are doing when it comes to making equipment.
I wanted to love the bag… I really wanted to. Unfortunately, I have a strict made in the USA 🇺🇸 policy with my kit and the tag inside indicated it was not. THIS IS MY FAULT for not checking completely NOT EBERLESTOCKS.
I just loaded it up last night, and it has plenty of space for medical items. I put several bandages, chest seals, emergency blankets, tourniquet, trauma shears, gloves, Israeli bandage, and an abdominal bandage. It’s a big kit, so it could be bulky but if your context needs a big kit, this is a good one. One con is the Velcro attachment, which allows quick access but also would allow it to be detached easily if bumped hard. It is tethered so you would not lose it but it could be aggravating. My solution was a simple shock cord around it and through the webbing that holds it to the Velcro backing securely.
The bag was on the small side and lacked side yolk straps which I felt it needed standard. The quality and finish on the bag were excellent.
Overall great pouch. Would have ranked it higher but have one complaint. The Molle is spaced three wide. This does not allow it to be centered on most gear because it is in even numbers spacing. Take for instance I put it on the back flap of My Gunslinger 2 pack. The molle is only four wide thus it had to be put off center of pack. It is a little gripe but it would have been nice if it was even spacing vs. odd.
Excellent pouch for storing small items. As a firefighter I use it to keep my PPE organized and readily accessible on the engine.
Great Product as usual. Will be back
Wanted something better than the Army SI ifak pouch (which keeps popping open & spilling stuff) and love buying stuff from companies I trust already.
Already used it to fix a cut on my daughter's finger with the hemostatic agent I put in there! She's not bleeding anymore! But she still runs with scissors...
