The Samaritan, this tear-away IFAK/Trauma kit from Relyant Solutions, is a game-changer for modern shooters. You should carry medical with you when you are shooting or if you are carrying a weapon. But most medical kits mounted on the rear of a war belt do not allow for you to be able to put the kit back once you have used something from the kit. This is fine if you are simply using the kit as an IFAK in case you yourself have serious wounds. You pull the kit, self apply or have a buddy provide aid and then begin evac. But if you are loading this kit as a trauma kit to treat others, then you may need to treat the casualty and then return the kit to the rear of the belt quickly. The combination of velcro backing and the magnetic Fidlock buckle make putting this kit back on your belt a breeze.
The inside of this kit is laid out well so you can store Massive Hemorrhage supplies on one side and Airway/Respiration supplies on the other. This layout makes it easy to find what you are looking for as you work your way through the MARCH algorithm. The base panel for this kit also has two tourniquet holders which not only allows you to carry 2 tourniquets but allows you to face one each way so you can grab a tourniquet with either hand. The CAT and SOF tourniquets fit in either tourniquet holder but the large loop on the bottom allows you to be able to carry to increasingly popular SAM tourniquet without it getting hung up on the large buckle when trying to deploy it.
This medical pouch has had a lot of thought put into the design along with field testing in different professions to make a robust and versatile trauma kit for the tactical environment. Give this kit a shot. You won’t be disappointed.

1-Six Echo Velcro Patch
