Good ifak pouch

Post by Lubo » Fri Feb 14, 2020 2:15 am

Hey all,

I’m in the market for a good ifak pouch, ideally I would like a pouch which has straps on either side for easy access to a tourniquet and shears. I’ve attached an image of a pouch I really like but isn’t reasonably available in the U.K. so if anyone knows where I can get one with a similar design it would be amazing.

Thanks :)

Just keep an eye out on market stalls, to be honest. I have something very, very similar, nets on the sides, a zipped compartment in the top, a main section, and two flat little pockets for a plaster/flash drive or something. £3 a few years ago at a local fair.

Hey,

That’s a good idea, haven’t thought about checking around at markets :) I’ll have a look next time ones on! Thanks

Yowzers, you boys like your expensive gear. :shock:

I rock some of these.

Got a few in red and green. One in the back of the missus's car, one in what passes for my 'grab bag' and one that's set aside for my walking/camping bag. Got one of the bigger ones in the same style that's the 'house' bag although I could tweek it for a bigger FAK. A couple others that are 'more or less 'dormant' as in I've robbed stuff out and not refilled as I've got the other FAK's.

Its more about the contents than the bag though.

I do carry some different sized plasters and alcohol wipes etc in the back of my wallet, along with a few brufin/imodium type stuff for 'EDC' but for a wee bag to take away I like to beef it up, I do have a field dressing in them, ironically from Israel but they're not Israeli bandages. :lol: A more basic dressing but there if I need them, never have so far touch wood.

Used my EDC on a elderly woman who was literally blown off her feet on the Whitby harbor bridge about 5 years back ... Just got her turned her into a oven ready chicken (foil blanket) when a passing police van stopped and got her in the back (crew seating area not the cage) to await the ambulance. . . Her just as frail husband tried putting a tenner in my hand... Told him to buy his wife some flowers........



I've a couple of EDC kits one lives in my work bag and that contains stuff for big ouches (work in a big saw mill)

My little free pouch kit packed up With more kit
