How's it going fellow gear whores! A little while ago y'all may remember I was in the market for a flatter more slimline IFAK. Another member recommended Raven Tactical, and I was sold after visiting the site. Price was great and everything is hand made here in the US. Paul, the owner, made some customizations for me, and next thing I know it's here



It attached easily and is very comfortable while sitting in a vehicle. Holds everything I want it to hold and very well made.




The deployment is a breeze and is very easy from the back of my FirstSpear/SKD STT.


Overall I'm ecstatic and I'll post a better review once I do dome training in it.

I'm not affiliated in anyway

Here's a video from the owner on packing it

This is on my list to add to my belt. Love the idea and ease of deployment. What bits of customization did you add if I may ask?

Where do the trauma shears go? His website says it can hold trauma shears, but this model looks different according to the original.

This is the smaller version of the one on his site. Not sure why this version isn't on the site. I put the shears in a MSM TQ/Shear holder on my cummerbund

I've been using one of these for several months and its a great piece of gear. Paul at Raven Tactical is a solid guy too.

Edit to add: I have taken to doing without the outer carrier attached to the rear of my PC and have just been sliding the IFAK inside my rear cumberbund flap. It's lower profile that way and does deploy easier as well. I'm going to train that way for a while and see how I like it.

For some reason I thought those were standard. What is the measurements on this smaller version. I also usually keep my shears on body rather than in a pouch.

Very nice, perfect size. He really needs to advertise this version on the website. Now I'm off to see if he can add 2" belt loops in place of 2 molle rows. Thanks!
