The Trauma Kit NOW! is an emergency access EDC trauma kit that can be deployed with one finger, literally saving lives on the battlefield. The TKN is a first aid pouch that was designed to hold the contents of the Army IFAK but can be configured to almost any emergency medical loadout or tactical first aid kit.
The TKN consists of two main components – the outer MOLLE medical pouch with Helium Whisper Attachment System and a removable inner supply carriage. The outer pouch is slightly tapered to make for easy removal, despite how full or empty the inner carriage may be. The pouch mounts on a 3 x 3 MOLLE field and can fit on a battle belt or other first line defense.
The inner supply carriage has been redesigned and constructed out of laser cut ULTRAcomp - saving weight and bulk over previous generations. The inner carriage consists of six rows of various sized heavy-duty elastic loops to keep medical essentials secure but visible. A center loop field can be used to secure pill packs or other smaller items with sticky hook tape (not included). A large pocket towards the bottom can fit a Quikclot bandage, chest seals, or other flatter supplies.
The inner carrier is deployed by pulling the tab with the ball detail up and out of the outer pouch. The design of the pouch combined with ball detail enables the Trauma Kit NOW! to be deployed with gloved hands in the dark, cold, or wet environments, or one finger if need be.
The top flap of the carriage uses hook and loop to close on the outer pouch or on itself when removed for passing off to a teammate in need. A single column of MOLLEminus slots on top are fully MOLLE compatible and provides a great location for a single pistol pouchfor a flashlight or multi-tool, or theTourniquetNOW! Strap.
A cross indicator is laser cut on the top flap and can be changed to either red or black. The Trauma Kit NOW!™ ships with the black indicator already in place. Simply remove the ULTRAcomp® tab from the pouch flap to reveal the read underneath.
The Patent pending Helium Whisper® attachment system is compatible with all MOLLE platforms and built with a combat tested, high performance laminate - ULTRAcomp - that reduces weight up to 60% while equaling or exceeding the durability of 1000d CORDURA®.
The Ball Loaded Index Point, or BLIP for short, is an enhancement in the pouch lid that allows for positive grip with cold, wet, gloved hands, or for use in the dark. A small nitrile rubber ball is sewn into the pouch lid which saves weight over traditional lid tabs but provides a mechanical interference between the fingers allowing for consistent pouch opening in adverse conditions.
As with all Blue Force Gear, the Trauma Kit NOW! is made with excellence in the USA and carries a limited lifetime warranty.

Blue Force Gear's Ball Loaded Index Point, or BLIP™ for short, is a feature found on all our lidded pouches and select plate carriers like the Trauma Kit NOW!. BLIP was born in the freezing rain on a Blackwater range. There, it was realized that when you can’t feel your fingers, it’s very difficult to get a grasp on a flat piece of webbing and distinguish a pull tab. The ball doesn’t rely on friction; the bones in your fingers positively engage it. BLIP’s form is both easy to pull and impossible to miss.
