Blue Force Gear
Micro Trauma Kit NOW! Basic
This kit is available with either a nylon belt-mount pouch or MOLLE-compatible pouch in your choice of several colors, and with either basic or advanced medical supplies. We opted for the basic belt-mount kit. This configuration includes a Tourni-Quik TK4, a minimalist elastic tourniquet that has been deployed with the U.S. Marine Corps and Special Forces. (For those who wish to also carry a standard C-A-T or SOFTT, Blue Force Gear offers a matching Tourniquet NOW! carrier.) The kit also has a hemostatic gauze dressing, a compression dressing, six strips of medical tape, and a pair of large gloves. These contents are housed in a quick-deploy insert, which can be removed from the belt carrier by pulling a tab on either side. The exterior panel features a laser-cut cross symbol with three interchangeable inserts — glow-in-the-dark reflector, red, and black.
Removable insert provides fast onehanded access to contents
Nylon belt carrier is well-made, and its belt loops can be removed if you prefer to carry in a pocket.
Supplies aren’t preloaded into the carrier The carrier is too small for a windlass tourniquet, and even the TK4 is a very tight fit. Per the instructions, its plastic wrapper must be removed.
