The Trauma Kit NOW! is an emergency access trauma kit that can be deployed with one finger, literally saving lives on the battlefield. The TKN was designed to hold the contents of the Army IFAK bit can be configured to almost any emergency medical loadout.
The TKN consists of two main components – the outer MOLLE pouch with Helium Whisper Attachment System and a removable inner supply carriage. The outer pouch is slightly tapered to make for easy removal, despite how full or empty the inner carriage may be. The pouch mounts on a 3 x 3 MOLLE field and can fit on a battle belt or other first line defense.
The inner supply carriage has been redesigned and constructed out of laser cut ULTRAcomp - saving weight and bulk over previous generations. The inner carriage consists of six rows of various sized heavy-duty elastic loops to keep medical essentials secure but visible. A center loop field can be used to secure pill packs or other smaller items with sticky hook tape (not included). A large pocket towards the bottom can fit a Quikclot bandage, chest seals, or other flatter supplies.
The inner carrier is deployed by pulling the tab with the ball detail up and out of the outer pouch. The design of the pouch combined with ball detail enables the Trauma Kit NOW! to be deployed with gloved hands in the dark, cold, or wet environments, or one finger if need be.
The top flap of the carriage uses hook and loop to close on the outer pouch or on itself when removed for passing off to a teammate in need. A single column of MOLLEminus slots on top are fully MOLLE compatible and provides a great location for a Single Pistol Pouch for a flashlight or multi-tool, or the Tourniquet NOW! Strap.
A cross indicator is laser cut on the top flap and can be changed to either red or black. The Trauma Kit NOW!™ ships with the black indicator already in place. Simply remove the ULTRAcomp® tab from the pouch flap to reveal the read underneath.
The Patent pending Helium Whisper® attachment system is compatible with all MOLLE platforms and built with a combat tested, high performance laminate - ULTRAcomp - that reduces weight up to 60% while equaling or exceeding the durability of 1000d CORDURA®.
