Mayflower Releases New Products

Thursday, November 17th, 2011

Mayflower Research & Consulting has just released two new products; the Assault Pack and Back Panel.

Assault Pack

The Assault Pack is a low profile affair that is designed to be used in confined spaces and isn’t wider than your back for getting in and out of vehicles or negotiating windows and doorways. It is a top loader with two separate compartments. Additionally, it incorporates a bungee along the back of the pack to facilitate the quick stowage of gear. Finally, it can be attached directly to armor or carried with the removable shoulder straps.

Back Panel

The Back Panel attaches directly to the rear of a vest or other platform and incorporates two pouches with the bottom one being a rapidly deployable medical pouch. The top pouch is fixed and is sized around the SOCOM issue NOD sleeve. The med pouch has handles and is attached to the panel via Velcro along with a backup strap system. This allows your team mate to easily remove the med pouch from your back. This pouch can also be particularly useful for breaching, medical, or SSE. In fact, the utility of the Back Panel is only limited by your imagination. Look for additional pouch options in the future.

As usual, look for these in Black, Coyote, Ranger Green, and MultiCam. Manufactured from 500D Cordura, they use mil-spec webbing and hard wear and are Made in USA! Both products are also available in LiteLok.

New Medical Bags

Thursday, November 17th, 2011

It seems as if we got hit with a quadruple whammy this week on medic bags (five if you count Mayflower’s Back Panel). We already covered the Low Profile Medical Kit from Phokus Research Group but there are a few other new models as well.

First up is the new ETA Trauma Kit Pouch from ITS Tactical. Developed in conjunction with ZULU Nylon Gear, the ETA Trauma Kit Pouch was designed to carry their Vacuum Sealed ETA Trauma Kit (designed to TCCC standards) as well as any other items the user needs to get at quickly. It is a compartmented design that is rapidly opened with the pull of a single loop connected to dual zippers. In addition to the main, rearmost pocket, there are two rear wing pockets large enough to store Decompression Needles and NPAs or other Airway devices. Additionally, the main flap panel design features the ITS Med Insert design. Finally, there is a channel between the pouch and MALICE clip webbing that will accommodate trauma shears, tourniquet pouch, or rescue hook.

Next is the SPECOPS IPMED or Indywidualny Pakiet Medyczny or Individual Medical Packet. As you may recall, SPECOPS.PL is a Polish company. As you can see, the IPMED is a multi-component pouch designed to be worn drop leg style and consists of four parts including a removable, tethered envelope for medical supplies. Interestingly, it made from 770D Cordura (common in Europe) in Coyote Brown. It comes filled with a medical kit built to TCCC standards. Read the whole review at

Finally, many of us are outdoorsmen but unfortunately, we don’t have the same level of medical gear for our outdoor pursuits that troops carry on the battlefield. Let’s face it, accidents happen in the woods. And if you’re hunting, trapping, or fishing, the results of an injury can be life threatening. That’s why our friends at Blackheart International developed the Sportsman Trauma Kit. Designed to fit in a cargo pocket, the was assembled by a former SF 18D and will feel very familiar to military personnel.

The kit Includes:
1 Custom bag, BDU Pocket Size
2 Krinkle Guaze
1 Emergency Bandage, 4″
1 Cravats
1 Casualty Cards (Triage Tags)
1 Asherman Chest Seal
1 Tourniquet, CAT one handed

There’s lots of great kit out there, and this is just the newest stuff. Make sure you take care of yourself and get the medical gear you need to keep yourself in the fight.
