Field tested and recommended by law enforcement officers in the National Tactical Officers Association (NTOA)) Member Tested and Recommended Program.
Miramar, Fla. (July 2019) – Tasmanian Tiger®, a tactical nylon line of products distributed exclusively for the US market by Proforce Equipment, Inc., is pleased to announce its TT Medic Assault Pack MKII S has received the Silver score from the National Tactical Officers Association (NTOA) Member Tested and Recommended Program, with an overall score of 4.35 out of 5 from law enforcement medical team officers.
“There is an increasing interest and need for mission specific medical bags in the law enforcement community,” Richard Lewis, President and CEO of Proforce Equipment, Inc. and exclusive US distributor of TT, said. “The TT Medic Assault Pack MKll S bag is a versatile carry bag for basic level tactical medical team members.”
An officer from Pennsylvania commented, “It will hold more than a standard IFAK but not as much as a full aid bag, so if you have any specialty ‘kits’ to carry, such as a difficult airway kit, or a small diagnostic kit for ‘sick call’ it would be a great choice.”
A member of a Wisconsin team noted, “The pack not only has comfortable, adjustable shoulder straps, it also comes with a chest and waist strap. It is very adjustable and extremely comfortable. The weight is distributed evenly and can be worn for extended periods with no soreness or shoulder fatigue.”
All testing officers agreed the pack was well-made and very durable. An officer using the pack through SWAT school and continued testing in the field found “no signs of wear” and “the pack looks brand-new.”
The TT Medic Assault Pack MKll S (medical products not included) was outfitted to each testers requirements. The Wisconsin tester found “the pack is the perfect size for the medical needs of a small group. It can carry more than enough hemorrhage control, airway management, and basic first aid equipment needed by a team medic or other small group.” The tester from Ohio outfitted the bag with multiple tourniquets, trauma bandages and gauze, chest seals, tape and eye shields. The elastic loops on the interior side walls held nasopharyngeal airways and added an accessory pouch on the exterior laser-cut MOLLE.
The tester from Pennsylvania pushed the versatility of the pack by using it as a technology bag to carry several charges, backup batteries, a “litany” of cables with room remaining for a multi-tool and other gear.
The TT Medic Assault Pack MKll S measures six liters in volume, weighs 41 ounces with a dimension of 13” x 9” x 4” and is made from CORDURA® 700 den material with YKK zippers. It is available in Black, Olive, and Coyote for $149.00.
