New U.S. Army IFAK II

The U.S. Army has announced that they are now issuing their new Individual First Aid Kit. It appears to be a slimmed down version of previous iteration presented by Natick. The new IFAK II will have all of the same kit as the original with the addition of a second tourniquet, Tactical Combat Casualty Card, marker, eye shield, chest seal, and strap cutter. The new IFAK pouch is designed to be mounted at the rear of the IOTV with a separate foldable kit inside that can easily be removed for quick use when needed yet remain tethered to its pouch. Tourniquet pouches can be mounted to the PALS outside of the pouch. It will also feature loop patches to attach any identification. Initial versions have been issued to soldiers in Afghanistan hence the MultiCam pattern. Read the full report on the new IFAK II at Army.mil
