The ATS Bleeder Pouch was borne from the need for a first aid pouch that fit the height parameters of the ATS War Belt system that was designed to hold supplies for controlling bleeding from gunshot wounds. The system consists of a MOLLE Panel that stays permanently attached to your modular platform, and a removable pouch. This is significant because the first aid pouch is most often used by another on the wounded victim, and having the pouch able to be removed from the victim allows access to the contents without having to roll the already wounded individual around in the dirt to get supplies from his first aid kit.
The pouch is removed from the MOLLE Panel by popping an ITW/Nexus side release buckle on the retaining strap, grabbing the horizontal tear away loop and pulling. Instead of a red handle, the handle on the Bleeder Pouch is color matched so that it doesn't create a visually distinctive mark. It is held secure to the body of the pouch when not in use by Velcro.
When opened, the body side of the pouch has two vertical loops of one inch Elastic, while the face side of the pouch has a vertical loop and two horizontal loops, also of one inch Elastic. The pouch is closed by a #8 YKK zipper with 550 Paracord zipper pulls.
Owing to its 500D Cordura construction, the Bleeder Pouch Rip Away weighs just 6 3/8 ounces. The pouch measures about 6 1/4 inches wide, about 4 1/2 inches tall, and about 4 1/2 inches deep.
The Bleeder Pouch Rip Away is available in Multicam, Coyote Brown and Ranger Green. Black and ACU are available as special order colors. As with all ATS Tactical brand products, the system is made in the USA of the best quality materials available, and is covered by a lifetime warranty against manufacturer's defects in materials or workmanship.

I picked this up to go on my pistol belt. It's surprisingly roomy, especially for its size. Plenty of room for tourniquet, combat/clotting gauze, airway kit, nitrile gloves, a pair of hyfin chest seals, and so on. And, it fits snugly without sticking up above my belt or flopping round. As another customer observed, it would be nice if this kit had something to indicate that it was a FAK. On the ranger green, a black sharpee works just fine to remedy this problem, so it retains the 5-star rating for me using the ranger green version. Note, though, that if I'd purchased either the multicam or black kit, the lack of anything to indicate that it's a FAK would be a hit on my rating.

Well made pouch that is perfect for attaching to a war belt. Perfect for placing behind the back because it is a rip away pouch, and therefore easy to remove in a hurry. Allows you to remove the pouch and use items as needed. I do wish it was a bit larger.

This would be a 5 star if there was some type of marker on the pouch to identify it as an ifak

Exactly what I needed everything fits perfectly inside and ease of access

This is by far the best IFAK out there. No other company makes a rip away pouch this compact, but with so much storage. I keep this one on my best in the small of my back and have a second one on the left side of my plate carrier. This one primarily serves as my anti-bleed kit with 2 tourniquets, 2 Israelis, an IV start kit and 2 quik clot bandages. It's nice to be able to rip it off instead of having to fumble around blindly. Also, because it can be ripped off, I can put in in places other IFAKs would be impractical and I can get to it with either hand, which is handy in the event one or the other gets injured. As far as build quality, it's very very well built, way better than Condor quality and even better than Tactical Tailor, which is very impressive. We'll have to see how it does downrange.

This pouch takes very little room on molle real estate and holds all the basic blowout kit components
