POOLER, Ga. -( Blue Force Gear, the designer and manufacturer of the world’s finest weapon slings and tactical equipment, will showcase the Micro Trauma Kit NOW! (Micro TKN) at this year’s Marine South Expo.

U.S. Marines will be able to demo the product first-hand at booth 121 at the Camp Lejeune, North Carolina-based show from April 12 to April 13.

Designed to hold essential lifesaving medical supplies, like a decompression needle and combat gauze, the Micro TKN attaches directly to your belt and is the smallest version of the Trauma Kit NOW! collection. The Micro TKN is available in several variations and can be purchased with or without medical supplies.

Two main components make up the Micro TKN – the outer MOLLE or belt mounted pouch utilizing Ten-Speed technology and a removable insert that keeps the medical supplies organized.

The MOLLE is horizontally mounted on the belt to not obstruct torso movement. The front outer pouch features a laser-cut cross with several signal indicators – black, red, or highly reflective glow-in-the-dark insert.

Blue Force Gear designed and developed the Micro TKN with help from an 18 Delta Special Forces Medic.

“The Micro Trauma Kit NOW! is the perfect tool for Marines to carry downrange because deployment of the first aid supplies can be done with one hand or even a single finger,” said Ashley Burnsed, CEO of Blue Force Gear. “The kit provides all the essentials needed to save a Marine’s life in one pouch.”

Marine South Expo attendees can find Blue Force Gear’s new products and current lineup in booth 121. James Byer, Blue Force Gear’s Government Business Development Manager and retired Infantry Marine, will be in attendance at the show.

The Marine South Expo showcases the latest innovations in military equipment and systems, designed specifically to address the evolving expeditionary needs of the Marine Corps.

The expo is owned by the Marine Corps League and provides an opportunity for Marines who are training to fight our country’s battles to see first-hand the latest equipment and systems being designed for their operational use.

The photo is not clear enough for me to tell what the components are, but as advised by Sam Cohen, the website has the details. I have also determined that, while having an appropriately stocked IFAK with me, I currently have to depend on someone with medical training to effectively use it for something like a gunshot wound with bleeding or a collapsed lung. Fortunately, there is an organization near me that teaches tactical medical response to first responders, and that course would be more than adequate for me. Until then, if I have the kit, I hope there is… Read more »
