Everyday Carry Medical
Our EDC Ankle Medical Kit gives you the ability to comfortably carry medical and some overflow everyday carry items.
In the world of self-defense, I hear folks talk about the importance of carrying medical.
The only problem is that they carry multiple knives, a gun, a reload, and you guessed it, NO MEDICAL.
If you really want to protect and defend life, you are more likely to need emergency medical than any of our stabby / shooty things (yes those are real words, as of now). The difficulty is that carrying medical can be bulky and your phone and keys are taking up most of your only available real-estate. The ankle though is usually fair game to those who wear pants regularly.
Our Everyday Carry (EDC) ankle first aid kit has some huge competitive advantages over the few that exist on the market.
Absolutely love the kit definitely took the two week waiting time, but for the good quality gear it’s worth it. Wasn’t a fan of the compression bandage it felt very bulky. Took up space, but other than that it disappears under my work pants.
I have had this ankle kit for a couple of years now. I usually carry it in my backpack (which I always have with me) as a secondary trauma kit. If I can’t have my backpack however, it’s nice to be able to have the option to have medical on you in any environment or setting. I would highly recommend wearing bootcut jeans/wide leg slacks because this will look ridiculous with skinny jeans. What kind of war poet wears skinny jeans anyways? When I fly, I always take the trauma shears out, but everything else is 100% good to go with the TSA. Overall, great purchase.
From reading reviews and watching videos on this ankle kit, as well as other kits. I recalled hearing a tip of making sure to fold the edges of gauze, seals, etc. First putting it together I didn’t think there was a way to get the elastic bandage to fit. Wore it around for about a half hour and thought, “hmm, I wonder if I can cram that bandage in? They did supply it after all “. Moved some stuff around and, well, it fits. Everything fits with a little coaxing. And yes remember to fold the edges out, away from your ankle.
After waiting this whole year past, I sit down to write a review at last... This poetic review, to your relief, Will not bash, and be so very brief... Its capacity is great, its weight is light, And despite its bulk, its out of sight... It has held up, and it does stay cool, It is the best, Warrior Poets rule...
Been using this kit under riding jeans on my motorcycle for the last two months. They are slightly bulkier than regular jeans so it's pretty much unnoticeable. Great addition to daily carry! Keeps my medical supplies on me if I get separated from the bike.
Larger Gentleman and it rides under my pantleg very comfortably
Have been wearing daily for the better part of a month and have not been disappointed. It's definitely not invisible on my lean frame (ironically, the observant onlooker would likely think "oh look, he's got a gun," but the joke's on them because it's not on my ankle), but not bad either as I tend to wear loose fitting pants. I've taken the liberty to customize the contents and will continue to do so until I find the perfect combo that balances concealability with accessibility. Overall, the ability to carry a decent amount of medical in a relatively concealable package is awesome and I would highly recommend that you consider it if you ever find yourself in a situation where someone might get seriously injured (which is all of you, so save up for a couple months and buy the thing).
I take my EDC items very seriously! I have been carrying CCW pistol for years, but recently began carrying medical items on my person. Statistically, I feel that it is more likely that I find myself in a situation where I would use medical equipment than my gun. However, I don’t want to carry a tactical load out everywhere I go and I only have so many pockets! This is the best quality product I have found that allows me to carry a full blowout kit/IFAK on me discreetly everywhere I go no matter what type of clothes I am wearing. I have only found two main drawbacks to this kit: 1. I would like to see it come in different sizes. I found that it was a little too big for my ankle. In order to get maximum comfort and conceal-abilty I had to cut it shorter and resew it. By doing this, it fits and conceals great, but I lost one of the discreet pockets. 2. I cannot conceal it wearing shorts. I solved this by finding a large elastic band, sewing velcro on it and using it to secure the kit as a waist/belly band. Now I can wear it with any type of clothing.
I’m a Lieutenant with my local fire department here in Maine. We very recently responded to a cardiac arrest where CPR was necessary. When going to apply the AED pads I knew the patient’s shirt needed to be removed. Without hesitation I pulled my right pant leg up and had trauma shears ready to work, without having to move from the patient’s side to locate shears. I can’t explain how comforting it was to have those shears ready at a moments notice. This is an incredible and reliable product so far. I am extremely happy with my choice of the Warrior Poet Supply Company, EDC ankle medical kit.
