    I put together something recently with this concept in mind. A belt kit.

    Components mounted inside a Condor single M4 mag pouch:

    Israeli Bandage, 4inch.
    CAT Gen 7 tourniquet in orange
    Combat Gauze, good until 2020
    Hyfin Compact Vented chest seal, pair, good until 2021 because an entry wound sometimes creates an exit wound

    The three linked items I got from North American Rescue as getting the real thing, and new stock for the longest expiration date, was important.
    The Izzy I had for a while and it's gone from range bag to range bag. I think I had gotten it on Amazon.

    Then:

    One pair nitrile gloves
    One small roll of duct tape
    Trauma shears. One beauty of the Condor pouch is that the overflap is velcroed and removable. This also means that something can be slipped into that channel securely.
    Loop velcro, sew on. This started life as a 4in wide piece. I simply cut along the length to get close to the width of the mag pouch.
    Self adhesive velcro. Mainly the hook side.
    Orange gaffer tape
    Orange paracord. I braided it using the wall knot pattern (HERE) as the moment you pull on it the knots separate a bit creating gaps that improve your grip.

    Once I'm totally happy with the configuration I may vacuum bag the velcro wrap and secure the pull tab to that compressed package. I have a FoodSaver thing, they're awesome lol.

    (the tourniquet would have already come out actually since it would be used first)

    Dan,

    Awesome set up. How stiff if that Velcro you used for the insert? Is it super rigid somehow or am I taking crazy pills?
