The Beacon™ Chest Seal is an advanced occlusive dressing designed to treat open chest wounds. Penetrating injuries to the chest that result in open chest wounds may lead to tension pneumothorax, the second leading cause of preventable death on the battlefield. Beacon™ Chest Seals are specifically designed with a medical grade hydrogel adhesive strong enough to adhere to skin that is exposed to blood, sweat, hair, sand or water.
Quarter folded to minimize size restraints
The Beacon Chest seal is configured ideally to fit in kits, even in small personal trauma kits. The entire package is only 6" x 4", making it by far the most "packable" chest seal we know of. Below, the package is shown with a standard business card on top:
The Beacon Chest Seal is available in both a vented and non-vented version. The vented version features a patent pending design with 4 vents that allow for one-way airflow out of the chest cavity during exhalation while preventing airflow into the chest cavity during inhalation. The 4 vent design maximizes venting and ensures proper chest seal function in the event of an obstruction.
The Beacon™ Chest Seal Meets CoTCCC Preferred Features for Chest Seals.

This is a great chest seal option for persons working with limited cube in an IFAK or other compartment. Minimal impact to bulk with a great adhesive material and nice surface area once applied that is comparable to HALO.
this one actually fits well in a regular sized pocket
I get the theory on a double pack seal like SAM and Halo do, but to keep it light and tight the beacon is far more likely to get into you pocket so its there when you need it. Most other seals, while great in application, don't consider ease of carrying in their packaging. If you don't have it with you, what good is it? This single pack seal is easy to carry and is very comparable to a Halo.
