The Tallboy ETA Trauma Kit and Pouch are the newest additions to the ITS Medical line up and have been in development for over a year with Haley Strategic and Zulu Nylon Gear. Taking the principles of their proven ETA Trauma Kit Pouch, they refined a few features and developed an additional horizontal mounting method.
The original ETA Trauma Kit Pouches, now dubbed the “Fatboy” share the refined sewn and color-matched webbing pull handle with removable red Velcro One-Wrap to denote medical components. With a simple pull on the handle, the pouch quickly filets open to provide immediate access to your medical components without delay.
The Tallboy ETA Trauma Kit Pouch moves from the wider three column PALS/MOLLE mounting of the Fatboy to a slim two-column mount, taking up no more real estate than a double mag pouch.
They’ve also re-packed their kits to fit in the new Tallboy configuration and you now have the option of ordering Fatboy or Tallboy Trauma Kits. While the new Tallboy vacuum sealed kits will fit in most double mag pouches, they highly recommend a dedicated pouch like the Tallboy ETA Trauma Kit Pouch, or ensuring a proper visual indicator for medical equipment is affixed.
Along those lines, all of the ETA Trauma Kit Pouches, both Fatboy and Tallboy, now come with a Med PVC Patch included. With the new Tallboy pouches, they’ve also included extra short MALICE clips in addition to the set of tall clips.
This ensures you can mount the new Tallboy pouch in any configuration you need to, both horizontally or vertically. MOLLE/PALS aside, you can also thread the short MALICE Clips in a horizontal configuration to easily affix the Tallboy pouch to a standard belt. A battle belt can be used for proper MOLLE/PALS mounting, but isn’t required.
