The Rescue Essentials Concealed Carry Trauma Kit may seem minimalist, but this IFAK offers considerable capability for stopping traumatic bleeding. Designed for truly discrete carry, the QC version (containing QuikClot® LE) is only about ¾" thick, while the Celox™ version (containing Celox™ Rapid) is just under 1" thick. Weighing just 5.7 ounces, either version will fit in the standard back pocket of street clothes, and will not bulge or create any discomfort for the user.
The Concealed Carry Trauma Kit Contains:
1 SWAT-T Tourniquet (can also be used as a pressure dressing)
1 Hemostatic Gauze (either Celox or Quickclot LE)
1 Pair Nitrile Gloves
The SWAT-T™ tourniquet doubles as a pressure dressing cover, while the hemostatic agents enable the responder to deal with major arterial bleeding. A pair of nitrile gloves is included for the user's protection.
- Vacuum-packed for durability and reduced cubic volume
- Includes hemostatic gauze, SWAT-T™ tourniquet and gloves
- Ultra-Thin Profile
Dimensions: 5"H x 4½"W x 1"D
Weight: 5.5 oz

Size perfect for carrying every day
Bought this for my wife and me. For concealed carry in case I need it
So far this kit is easy to carry in my 5.11 pants for everyday carry. It is not bulky like my IPOK which is what I take to the range.
After looking at several methods off carrying a small truam a kit i came upon this kit and decided to try it. All i can say is that the kit packs a punch and works great for carrying in a pocket or rushpack i bought 2 kits for me and my wife.
Concept is compact, but perhaps impractical. I've recently changed my opinion on clotting agents. So I threw out the Celox with the packaging. Ran out of time to refund. Should have done my research. A better packet would be a SWAT, H&H gauze, gloves and a CPR shield. It would be just as compact and do the same or more for less.
RESCUE ESSENTIALS COMMENT:
If time is not of essence and the Responder is well trained in wound-packing, Jeff's point applies. (We can make that configuration upon request). However, in an Active Shooter or similarly urgent situation, hemostatic agents save lives and TIME.
This is a powerful concealable kit, that can go with you anywhere. You can have the biggest and best trauma kit... but if it's not with you, it's not worth a damn!!!
Great product for conceal carry, also another good place is to put it behind a ballistic plate in body armor to have the product right at your disposal.
I carry a much bigger "blow-out"kit on my ankle at work. This kit is a perfect for my of work every day carry..
After talking with the guy's at Rescue-Essentials
and explaining what I was looking for, they recommended this kit. I got the one with the Celox Rapid after I read several articles and watched a few video's about it.
As a CCW license holder I feel that this kit gives me the tools to save myself or someone else if thing's go bad.
It fit's in the back pocket of my jeans or slack's and is comfortable when sitting or driving for long period's.
