Monday, March 11th, 2019

Italian manufacturer FROG.PRO showed their Orthos Med Pouch. Made from a laminate, it is laser cut to be both PALS and shock cord compatible. It incorporates a glove dispenser, TQ holder and the Medical Cross insert can be swapped out for Red, White, Black, GITD or IR.

It’s a sleeve design which uses their Multi Purpose Organizers, which are both PALS and shock cord compatible, to organize the contents of the first aid kit. The Orthos will accept two, one inserted from either end, with the clearly marked Pull tabs visible. As you can see in the photo above, the Orthos features shock cord at the corners of the openings to keep the MPOs from falling out.

The Orthos can be carried one of three ways. It has built-in PALS compatible straps, 2″ belt wraps, or a zipper to attach below other platforms via their abdominal panel accessory.

Below, you can see it attached to the Modular Reconnaissance Task Bag set up as a chest rig. It will also fit their armor carriers.

Here are a few of my favorite pieces.

They’ve combined retro military design with work wear and introduced new fabric blends using Cordura nylon to increase durability. Colors on the final products will differ.
