Many TCCC trauma kits on the market can become very large and bulky when loaded. Though this is mostly unavoidable due to medical gear inside being large itself, there is another option. After much deliberation, T.REX ARMS in conjunction with Coyote Tactical Solutions devised a handy design to slim things down without eliminating important medical equipment.
The tourniquet is moved to the bottom of the pouch and attached via elastic loops. Inside the pouch is a removable tray holding the gear. Unzip the pouch on one side with either hand, grab the tray pull handle, and you’re good to go. MADE IN USA.
If you purchase the MED1 empty, be aware that larger medical gear may not fit the pouch. The equipment we recommend is the gear we include with the pouch when you purchase the “full” option. DIMENSIONS (Full): 7.5″ L x 4.75″ T x 2″ W
The CAT Tourniquet ships in original shrink-wrap packaging when the full kit is purchased. We advise removing the tourniquet from the plastic packaging before storing on your MED1 for use.
If you need to replace individual medical contents after use, we recommend buying them straight from North American Rescue
The MED1 is attached via laser-cut belt loops on the back of the pouch. Small loops being 1 3/4″ wide, and the large loops being 3″. The MED1 is NOT MOLLE-compatible, only belt loop-compatible.
The MED1 pouch was also designed as a multi-use pouch. The inside is lined with Velcro loop allowing you to attach Spiritus Systems SACK pouch inserts, or our elastic battery/chem-light holders to hold other equipment. It can be quite a useful pouch for general purpose items. The wide section of Velcro loop on the front also allows you to attach decomp needles, chemlights, batteries, sharpies, even extra tourniquets with our elastic tourniquet holder.
