Always ready trauma kit

I was a grunt doc a lifetime ago and now I am a teacher. Between the school shootings and jilted idiots stabbing people over prom rejections, I do worry about being able to make a difference when the SHTF. Our nearest Fire Department might only be minutes away, but that is no consolation to a stabbing or gunshot victim. And school nurses? Sorry, not convinced they can to the work. So I have a kit in my desk but I still wanted something closer to hand. This kit is it. I got quickclot control dressing, a chest seal kit, a compression bandage, and a tourniquet. They even throw in a pair of nitrile gloves. This is gonna handle a lot of bleeds - and certainly will keep a bleed under control until I can get someone to show up with my bigger kit. I've been wearing this for a week now and it is comfortable. It doesn't present much of a tell either. The tabbed bungees keep the gear in place and the pouches themselves provide for a pretty snug fit. This means stuff isn't going anywhere until I want it out. The tabs also mean that I can slip the restraints quickly. This is a sign of a well-engineered product. If you are looking for something that will handle the unthinkable, that is convenient to wear and is unobtrusive, you can't do much better than this. I do recommend you spend time developing that muscle memory by practicing reaching for what you want. This is a great kit at a solid price for the value.

Ankle Ifak

This kit is very comfortable, so far. I wear long socks and Kuhl pants or blue jeans for a typical work day servicing corporate clients as a programmer, and the kit fits very nice just above my mid top boots and fits securely to my leg without shuffling around. There is slight printing, but really nothing to be worried about considering the amount of trauma gear on-board, and frankly not that noticeable with my low-top hiking boots. I adjusted the SOFT tourniquet with windlass to the side in a "flat-pack" fold for a more shallow profile. (check out https://youtu.be/pN7Gxn4Avq8). Next I pocketed the front and back chest seals, together with the combat gauze, then the 4" ETD dressing, and finally the decompression needle. I carry the D.A.M. military trauma kit in the side of my bullet proof backpack when on location, but this seems to be the perfect CCW / EDC solution, at least for me when not carrying my pack.
