Warrior Poet Society IFAK - Individual First Aid Kit - Belt Mounted Medical Kit
The Med Kit That All the Other Med Kits Are Talking About
Made in the U.S.A.
The WPS Belt Mounted Medical Kit is the most recent product release from John Lovell and Warrior Poet Society Manufacturing. A sleek, innovative design that allows maximum storage with minimal space. Designed and built to do what other IFAKs can't.
John designed this med kit to address a problem that the industry hadn't seemed to answer yet. Most belt-mounted med kits don't have room for trauma shears, and if they do, it tends to add a ridiculous amount of unnecessary bulk.
The WPS IFAK has a designated trauma shears compartment that doubles as a quick deployment pull-tab, giving you instant (and ambidextrous) access to supplies. Just reach down and give the shears a rip, and you're ready to administer life-saving aid.
Velcro retention straps allow you to adjust the kit to accommodate a variety of medical supplies while keeping things snug.
Available with or without medical components.
If you plan on attaching the WPS IFAK to your battle belt, you can do so using Malice Clips - available here.

Review: The Newly-Designed WPS Belt-Mounted Medical Kit
The John Lovell-designed medical kit provides a securely-fixed trauma kit easy to access from the belt-line or elsewhere without impeding movement.
Finding everything you need in the throes of battle is a persistent challenge for operators, especially when the adrenaline is pumping. This is particularly true when it comes to field medicine and trauma care administered in the midst of hostile encounters or other emergencies.
That's why I (John Lovell) have continually refined our approach to quick-response trauma care kits that can fit snugly and discreetly on your belt. The WPS IFAK (Individual First Aid Kit) is our fastest grab-and-go trauma kit to date, carrying what you need and nothing you don't for those heated moments down range.
I even included full-sized trauma scissors as part of the solution. Those historically-obtrusive-though-absolutely-necessary implements have now become the quick-draw mechanism for this system. If you've attended one of our medical training classes or been involved in a tactical medical emergency, you know how critical this component (the quickness and the scissors) can be when caring for an injured friend.
If you don't currently carry trauma supplies as part of your kit, I hope you'll start.
Minimalist, Low Profile Design
The new WPS Belt Mounted Medical Kit is our most recent product release and one I designed in collaboration with the Warrior Poet Society Manufacturing team. A sleek, innovative design that allows maximum storage with minimal space.
We shaped our kit with the dimensions of a chest seal, an innovation that keeps this all-important trauma care component from becoming crushed or otherwise compromised while riding in the kit. All other contents fit flatly against it within a snug quad-fold compartment for secure containment but easy deployment.
Another critical piece, the tourniquet, is positioned atop and outside this package for easy access and to keep it safe from the crunch of moving into and out of position. Yes. This kit allows you to sit comfortably just about anywhere.
The Magic of Trauma Sheers
The WPS IFAK is designed and built to do what other IFAK designs can't. As mentioned before, we designed this med kit to address a problem that the industry hasn't seemed to answer yet. Most belt-mounted med kits don't have room for trauma shears, and if they do, it tends to add a ridiculous amount of unnecessary bulk. The WPS IFAK has a designated trauma shears compartment that doubles as a quick deployment pull-tab, giving you instant (and ambidextrous) access to supplies. Just reach down and give the shears a rip, and you're ready to administer life-saving aid.
Lightweight and Adjustable for Comfort and Function
The velcro retention straps on this new design allow you to adjust the kit to accommodate a variety of medical supplies while keeping things snug. And this retention system is constructed of durable, water-resistant, yet lightweight material to keep your ounce count down to a minimum.
As with any piece of gear you add to your kit, your knowledge and skill are an absolutely critical component of any trauma care system. You can check out some of our in-person WPS medical training opportunities.

This belt driven medkit is so awesome! I bought the one with their supplies and added 80% of my own. It easily fits ALMOST 2 medkits. BUY IT!!
This piece of kit is well belt and looks awesome too. Really love it, almost. The stretch tourniquet holder is pretty difficult to fill. Are there any suggestions on how to get a CAT into this thing?
I recently purchased the WPS belt IFAK and was pleasantly surprised by it's robust construction and low profile. I was able to mount it on my plate carrier with no problem and have found it to be a fantastic addition to my kit. Great job WPS!
Amazing product for a battle belt. I was looking at many for a long time. After close comparison this product was the best out if many purchases. Trust me, this the one to get.
I like it so far. Only worn it on my EDC belt so take that. Its a little hard to get the retension just right but thats my only complaint.
Just got my full kit in green. Puts together really easy, and is exactly what I was hoping for. Great job!
If you’re like me you’ve been trying to figure out the best place to mount trauma shears on your battle rig. Nothing works right! In comes the WPS IFAK. This thing is perfect. Let’s face it, you’re waaaaaay more likely to need a med kit, than you ever will a gun. So it’s better to have the best IFAK you can get. This kit really checks all the boxes. I originally bought the Blueforce belt mounted kit and it was decent, but man was it hard to get out of my belt quickly. The stretch material and velcro just never wanted to give up goods, no matter how I packed the contents. Plus I needed a separate belt holder for my tourniquet and yet another holder for the scissors. What a PITA! With the WPS IFAK all I have to do is pull out the kit by the scissors and then pull out the tourniquet. Both come out quickly as you can adjust the velcro tension for the IFAK. Super fast and effective!! Thus is exactly what you want in an emergency situation. And as an added bonus, the IFAK has more internal room than the Blueforce, which makes it far easier to load the med kit into. This makes it easy to check the expiration dates and keep it updated. I was able to easily load the full contents of my Blueforce IFAK into it. The Ranger (John) really knocked it out of the park with this one. First piece of kit that I have been excited about in years. And no this isn’t a paid review. I’m just a dumb redneck from the northeast Georgia mountains. But I’m a redneck with some great bandaids. So if you’ve read this far, blessings to you and yours. Buy this IFAK. You won’t regret it.
