CTOMS – SlimmerLine IFAK

During last week’s SOMSA, Canadian-rescue firm CTOMS ran us through several of their products including their new Individual First Aid Kit, the SlimmerLine. Named after the SlimLine, the new SlimmerLine is a scaled down version of its predecessor.


First off, the SlimLine is still available and will eventually adopt the new release feature developed for the SlimmerLine.

The HDPE tongue has been moved to the top of the pouch with the pouch’s beaded pull now stowed at the bottom back of the panel to protect it from accidental snag.


This configuration makes it easy to completely release the pouch from the panel in one gross motor movement. There’s no fine motor movement required (like squeezing a buckle).


The pouch itself opens by pulling on the two tabs at the top that are secured with a snap. That snap acts as a rapid secondary closure if in a hurry or the zipper should fail. Inside, contents are secured with elastic straps.

    Will it carry a full IFAK loadout?

  2. Chris K says:

    Depends on your full IFAK loadout. It will comfortably fit a tourniquet in the exterior pocket, flat pack bandage, hemostatic dressing, chest seal, gloves, scissors with plenty of room of a needle, NPA, CPR Mask (NuMask pictures) if you desire.

    What’s the molle space taken up? 2 or 3 columns?

    • CrustyCameron says:

      The original slimline only takes up two columns so I imagine this would be the same.

  5. Chris K says:

    2 columns. Will come with vertical mount. Horizontal mount panel available as an accessory.
