A newly upgraded version of our popular Rip-Away Compact IFAK Pouch. This is a favored configuration for IFAKs carried by numerous Government agencies' personnel, because of its size, versatility and rugged construction.

    Definitely was concerned about getting all my stuff in this little zip up pack for my plate courier but it has definitely worked and has a lot more room than I thought it was gonna have…. I have fit everything in it love the Taraway feature with the Velcro in case you need to get to it really fast.. Great Pouch for your plate carrier

    Slightly smaller than original

    Picked this up as part of a deal with an IFAK refill kit. I have the original one through a FLETC course, and moving that kit over found that it seems slightly smaller. I do like the bottom panel having a smaller zippered pouch on it. Slightly more compact but fit everything still. Purchased in red, it does match the RE Universal Tourniquet holder in red as well.
