This modern take on the WWII British MKVII gas mask bag made famous by Indiana Jones by Zulu Nylon Gear caught our eye.


Constructed of double layer 1000D Cordura the interior features a large loop field on the rear wall for mounting various hook backed accessories. The front interior features a slip pocket with hook and loop closure.


Available in Coyote and made in Chicago, it’s simple and unobtrusive. Well done Joel!

ITS Tactical Single Point Koozie

Tuesday, May 8th, 2012

ITS Tactical developed this Single Point Koozie with Zulu Nylon Gear. It’s a very nice application of the style. While they credit OSOE with the original design, I remember as a kid the Life Support guys in my dad’s unit sewing shoulder straps made from tubular nylon on to a Velcro harness affair to hold foam beer coazies circa the early 80s. We had a couple around the house. The idea is old, but this application is well executed.

“While we certainly can’t take credit for the first tactical koozie, that goes to our friend John Willis over at OSOE, with his blessing we’ve created our Single Point Koozie which draws it’s inspiration from the coolest piece of kit from our last Hog Hunt.

These koozies feature MultiCam Jacquard Webbing, MultiCam Loop, removable strap, drainage grommet and even removable ITW QASM buckles to mount it to your belt!”

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.

We’ve covered a few items from Zulu Nylon Gear and are happy to say that they are good to go.

New Mega Admin Pouch from Zulu Nylon Gear

Tuesday, January 5th, 2010

Zulu Nylon Gear has improved their Mega Admin Pouch released last year. The new version incorporates several new features based on user feedback. The main difference is a loop surface in place of the vinyl pocket so the user can swap out either a folding vinyl map sleeve that can fit paper up to 8.5×11 or other hook backed accessories available from various manufacturers. Additionally, there are several panel variants specifically for the Mega Admin that will be available soon. Other improvements include two D-rings placed inside the pouch as well as a webbing loop placed at the end of the GPS pocket flap for dummycording.

Mega Admin Pouch

Thursday, August 20th, 2009

ITS Tactical has recently done an excellent review of Zulu Nylon Gear’s Mega Admin Pouch. I think it is aptly named. This 1000D Cordura provides more than ample space for your administrative needs and features a fold down area that serves as a chest mounted desk.
