Its one peice of equipment I think it far more important than my 80s era LBV and would like to have one just in case. You know, in case I stub my toe and need to treat myself for Tension Pneumothorax. I've been to the Tactical Medics site but they dont have any of the IFAK pouches like I was trained with. Just need it to be ACU, molle mounted, and quickly detatchable either the whole pouch or a teathered interior pouch. Im sure Doc smiley or MrLogan will chime in shortly :)
Thanks in advance

Cool. Thanks :) I havent tried ebay for that. Everytime I look for something, airsoft junk pops up. On another note. Does anyone know where I can get IV kits? Not that I would ever really need one other than to use irresponsibly while drunk. (hey, least Im honest)

IFAK = CAT & Isreali bandage etc. Mounts to IBA
CLS = CAT, Isreali, IV's, catheters for tension pnemothorax etc.
Large/Patrol Backpack.

Units tend to stuff the IFAK with a bunch of BS(Sunscreen, bandaids, chapstick). Makes it ungainly large. Stick to the basics/most req'd(CATS/Isreali Pressure Dressing) Especially if your in the business.
Keep it accessible. Not on your back!! Does you no good mounted back there.
Ask or extra CATs from the medic or med supply. If your CLS they will always hook you up with extra CATs/Bandages/IVs etc.

Standard packing list for our IFAKs is as follows:

-CAT II tourniquet with the packaging removed
-Israeli Trauma Dressing with the outer packaging removed and the inner packaging dummy tabbed for quick opening
-H&H Gauze
-2" tape
-gloves
-14ga 3 1/2" catheter
-Hemcon Chitosan dressing

North American Rescue Products makes some really cool stuff to put in there as well, they make a neat IV start kit that has everything you need to get a saline lock in place that fits well in the extra loops that come in the IFAK. An asherman chest seal also fits in the IFAK pretty well and is a good addition.

FREAKING SHWEET! I saw print outs for ifaks for sale on my SDS desk when I was hanging some plaques in his office. Got yelled at by one of the DS for being "nosey" when I tried looking at it. It was from that site and I couldnt remember for the life of me. My SDS wouldnt of cared if I took a copy :rolleyes:
Anyways I got mine today from ebay. it was supposedly used buy man it looked like it was brand new out of the box and everything but the tape was sealed up :)

Yeah that does suck but I got one practically brand new from ebay for half the price.
