Recently Chase Tactical announced that they would be releasing the QRK (Quick Response Kit), and I was happy to see that the price of the kit was much less than the other "pocket" medical kits out there without sacrificing the quality of the actual kit. At the price point of $98.95 plus $6 for shipping costs the price was within the budget that I had set for myself, and I was happy to see that there were a few items in the kit that I had trained people on when I was instructing Self Aid Buddy Care (SABC) with the California Air National Guard.
After talking with Chase Tactical about the kit a few times I was happy with the construction of the kit and the thought that was put behind each piece of that is included in the kit.
2 Pairs of Nitrate Gloves
1 M.A.T. Tourniquet ( MAT Tourniquet video )
1 Blood Stopper
1 QuickClot 25 gram Sponge
1 Triangular Bandage with 2 Safety Pins
1 Roll Krinkle Gauze
1 Emergency Blanket
2 Sudecon Wipes
The M.A.T. Tourniquet was one of two items in the kit that I have not seen before. The first aid kits that I used for training in the Air Force were C.A.T. (Combat Application Tourniquet) which is a very light and small piece for the kits, but is not as advanced as the M.A.T. (Mechanical Advantage Tourniquet) which seems to be much easier to use one handed. You can see how the M.A.T. is applied in this video.
Overall I am extremely impressed with the QRK that Chase Tactical has put together, even though there are a few items that I will be adding out of my own personal preference, it is a great emergency kit that with the proper training could possibly save your life or the life of someone else. I highly recommend checking out their Facebook page Chase Tactical, and if you are interested in getting this kit contacting them to get on the pre-order for it.
