Here's a review of the 9022 that I posted on another forum:
Recently, I began to re-evaluate how I carry my medical equipment. I had decided that I wanted at least an IFAK on my first line for those occasions when I wasn’t wearing my armor (such as running the line at our range, etc).
We tend to do a lot of vehicle assaults and buy/busts deploying from unmarked vehicles, so I needed to find an IFAK pouch that was compatible with being seated in a vehicle (sedan or SUV).
Originally, I began running a BFG Trauma Kit NOW at the 4-5 o’clock position behind my pistol on my warbelt. I found that the TKN was a little too “tall” to be belt mounted (especially with a TQ strapped to the top), and “flopped” around too much for me. I then began to run an ATS small medical pouch, however this pouch was too “deep” and not wide enough, making it uncomfortable and awkward to sit.
Recently, I learned of Tier One Quality Solutions
through the tourniquet topic posted in the Tac Med Forum.
When browsing their website I saw their “Comprehensive Trauma Kit”Comprehensive Trauma Kit
and was intrigued. I did not need any of the supplies for an IFAK, just the pouch. I spoke with Paul Ekoniak via email, who was able to provide me the pouch only, at the .GOV rate.
Essentially, the CTK is a London Bridge 9022 IFAK pouch (I believe they are made by LBT for TQS). LBT-9022
This pouch is designed as an open-bottomed pouch which allows the user to remove the contents downward when the pouch is opened, and is designed to be worn in the small of the back.
The pouch is very compact, and is only 2” deep when stocked. The tag end of the tab can be stowed out of the way under elastic that is on the pouch’s face.
The pouch can either be mounted traditional belt loops, or via MOLLE webbing.
It is secured shut by a pull tab that is laced through loops on both the front and rear face.
The pull tab pulls completely free of the pouch, allowing the contents to be removed.
I was easily able to stock the kit with an Israeli dressing, combat gauze, a z-pak dressing, (2) 14ga catheters, an NPA, (2) occlusive dressings, and a roll of duct tape. As tourniquets are mounted elsewhere on my kit, I don’t have one in this pouch.
If you’re looking for a low-profile IFAK to wear on your first line, this is definitely an item you should be giving consideration to!
