Born out of a necessity for a medium-sized trauma bag without giving up any maneuverability in the gunfight, we introduce the Combat Medical Pack. Based on the Combat XII Pack , the CMP is designed to be worn as a direct attach or strap-worn system; it is a realistic compromise between size and speed. Designed on the real world experiences of the Ares Armor staff this pack comes ready to carry all the necessary battlefield trauma supplies in kinetic operations. Sorry Band-aids, hitch a ride somewhere else. The top pouches can still carry M-16 and LR magazines; however, are large enough to carry 500mL IV bags. For this reason flaps have been added to these pouches to ensure UV rays do not come in contact with the bags. A small GP pouch is sized for items like a field surgical kit, OPAs, NPAs and cricothyrotomy kits. A 5x5 pouch comes with a dedicated chest seal pouch in order to maintain integrity of the seals. The back panel of the 5x5 is Velcro MOLLE so you can add either the included Velcro pouches or other MOLLE pouches. The main compartment maintains the hydration pocket but has Velcro MOLLE on both interior walls to use the included pouches or MOLLE pouches. The pack comes with (2) 12 inch zippered Velcro pouches and (2) 9 inch zippered Velcro pouches. It includes (5)Velcro single loops perfect for compression bandages, (1) multi-loop perfect for decompression needles and catheters, and a threader to put the loops on.

Ares Combat Medical pack

plenty of room. Easy to customize the lay out.
extra buckles would be nice to mount it to both of my vests.
We have 4 of these on our team for our Tems guys ( me being one of them) and we love them. I have enough to treat 2 patients from the bag in a hot/warm zone. I clip it to my vest and can drop it quickly with the 4 buckles. Its a little difficult to get into our suburban with it on unless I lay the seat way back.
