Outstanding Bag

 Rated 5.0 stars

From EMSChief1951


Bought this bag about 2 years ago for my POV and was the best money i've spent on a bag. Had several over the years and they dont last
this bag is great for the BLS provider and has plenty of space to stock and over stock certain things.
1 down side. i truly wish it had a shoulder strap

Great Bag- needs a few adjustments

 Rated 4.0 stars

From Two Fitty


let me start by saying, how this bag is amazing for keeping everything organized, and in place. With all the different compartments, it makes it very easy to store equipment, and allowing everything to be visible at the same time. The bag is nice and rugged, and extremely durable

Few small complaints:
1. i wish the bag was jsut a few inches bigger (either longer or wider), since everything fits "just right", theres no room to have anything "extra". since i wanted extra room, i was forced to buy the 6.10 vertical pouch and attached it to the molle webbing on the end of the bag, and used it to store my BVM
2. I wish there were elastic loops somewhere (inside the bag) to hold my penlights, trauma sheers- and i like to have my OPAs lined up by size in the elastic loops too; but there arent any except the molle webbing on the outside.
3. D rings are provided for a shoulder strap, but no shoulder strap is provided- you have to buy your own.
4. an added bonus would be to have a glove pouch on the outside, but that would be an added bonus

Overall, i would recommend buying this bag, especially if points 1 & 2 dont bother you

Using for a different job

From Melaney


I am actually an athletic trainer, and I knew about 5.11 because of my husband. He's a paramedic. I knew I didn't want to buy a typical AT bag because they are ridiculously expensive.
I found this bag and thought it would work for what I needed and I love it so far. I've only had it 4 days but I am able to organize it so easily. Even my students say that it's awesome. Since I don't carry oxygen, I use the garage for splints and padding, it works great!

Awesome bag

I just got this bag and it is awesome. I was worried about having room for everything, especially C-collars and BVMs, but the collars fit nicely in the garage with the O2 and BVMs can fit in the side pocket perty nicely. The interior pockets are awesome, it's just sometimes I wish they were bigger to better hold stuff. Overall a great bag that I would highly recommend to anybody serious about first response EMS.

Great Jump kit

 Rated 4.0 stars

From Ambu-Whacker

from State College, PA

Bought the bag as a personal jump kit for my car. I like the back pack style configuration and for the most part I can fit everything I need in it. None of the pockets are really long enough for a cervical collar (I just crammed it in with the O2 bottle. It's tight but works)

Great level of customization available, you can easily set every pouch in this back to your exact specifications.

Only other wish is that the buckles on the shoulder straps were made of metal, the ones joining the straps to the bag are, seems like they got lazy and just threw some cheep plastic ones on. One broke the other day, a quick call to customer service and a new one is on the way.

I have had this bag for several months and have used in on numerous calls. The bag holds everything I need and keeps everything well organized. I actually used this bag(as my weighted backpack) to complete a PT session with the Marines. 3.5 miles later and over 300 exercises, the bag was still comfortable!

Gets the job done

From emt-p

from Minnesota

Sturdy bag, zippers function well even in snowy, icy environment. O2 cylinder pocket is really nice - don't have to dig tank out from under everything else when you need it, but out of the way when you don't. Easy to organize/compartmentalize all your supplies (airway, splinting, trauma, etc.). The biggest problem with this bag is that there is no good way to carry a c-collar in the bag - it's just a little too short, and the compartments make it hard to fit large supplies in the bag. (but you can shove a c-collar in the O2 compartment).

Awesome BLS bag with just one flaw.

We just received 5 of the BLS units and love them with one exception, no shoulder straps. Even though it has the "D" rings for one.
