Awesome TQ with excellent mechanical advantage.
Although heavy in comparison to the SOF-T and SOF-TW and the CAT, the LBT Ratchet Tourniquet, aka 'Ranger Ratchet' is the leader in mechanical advantage amongst all the commercially manufactured tourniquets on the market today. These have never failed me and are a great option for first aid kits and Med bags for mechanized and mounted units/operations (including LE cruisers and patrol vehicles) and for certain types of anatomy that cause problems when using other tourniquet types.
We got these plate carriers approx 10 months ago. We got them in ranger green which matches the Crye Precision ranger green perfectly. We also got them with IIIA soft armor and LTC level 3 poly plates. They carriers are great. They provide plenty of mobility but still offer great protection. We also got them with closed cell foam inserts for maritime which works really well. I would highly recommend this carrier over any SWAT Entry vest on the market they are all too big and cumbersome.
Excellent Size, easier to handle
I jumped with the first prototypes of this ruck while serving with the 504th PIR "Devils" in '97 and '98 and being the RTO for Col. Petraeus. After jumping for 2 years with my SINCGARS in the classic rucksack. this back pack was so much easier to handle. Having the organization pockets for the spare battery, antennas, etc. was the first biggest benefit. Everything was easy to find and readily available. The pack itself was smaller than a classic rucksack but still had plenty of room for my standard jump load. the reduced size made it more comfortable will waiting on the Tarmac and in flight.
I highly recommend any current Airborne RTO to get one.
Great backpack, I love it.
I got this backpack new, free from a man who was in the military. I use it for school and other general purposes. Its super durable, and I can take it anywhere. With the chest and waist strap, as well as lower back support carrying it is a breeze!

One of the best bags on the market.
Great bag for deployments and training inside the US. You can live out of this bag for a long time with a little bit of support. Theres a map/document pocket, theres a quick access pouch in the front, its awesome. It would be better if it had molle on the inside of the main pouch, other than that its perfect.
this bag was handed down to me from one of my senior docs. it's been the best hands down!! plenty of storage pockets for bandages, 500cc iv bags, medications, and even subsistence items when you're on the go. it also doubles as an awesome every day carry backpack when you're in the rear. plenty of room, storage and organization for whatever you throw at it.
Best Combat Medic Bag ever
I used this bag as a senior medic in Iraq for a scout platoon i was assigned to, and it worked wonders for me, was easy to wear with all other heavy gear. was also great to use once i left the army for everyday use.
Great IFAK Pouch!
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 saw this pouch on the internet and was intrigued.
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!
That is one sleek urban design. I'd honestly feel like Jason Bourne wearing that. Mind you, I'd have far less drive and purpose than he had in the movies, but at least it would make me feel like I was going somewhere hyper cool that day.
This is a great 3 day pack.The source vagabond hydration bladder fits and the 3 velcro straps at the top hold the curve of the souce bladder perfect!
Best pack I ever owned
This pack was definitley designed with the grunt in mind. Extremely durable pack with all the right ammount of pockets and extras. I'll take mine anywhere.
