The BDS Tactical Gear Enhanced Combat Trauma Medical Bag has been designed and built from the ground up considering the specific needs of a Combat Medic. From the compartmentalized interior with airway panel to the external IV pouches on each side this bag can be set up to quickly access those life saving tools that are most often needed in combat.

Each ECTAB has (1) zippered and (3) drawstring closure pouches that are fully removable from the back wall of the CTAB. As an option when configuring your bag, you may upgrade all of the pouches so that they have zipper closures. ZIPPERED POUCHES ARE MADE WITH ONE ZIPPER HEAD.

The airway panel is also fully removable from the wall of the ECTAB and is mounted via hook/loop to the large zippered internal compartment.

Each ECTAB is built with standard with (2) 500ml IV pouches and (2) 1000ml IV pouches. These pouches are mounted permanently on each side of the CTAB and they are covered in PALS webbing so that smaller pouches or tools can be attached. IV POUCHES ARE MADE WITH A SINGLE ZIPPER HEAD.

The ECTAB also has two large 9x8x3 pouches on the front of the bag for even more storage. AND they are covered in PALS webbing so that even more smaller pouches or tools can be added.

Because we understand that medics need multiple carry options (carried on back or mounted to a vehicle), we have designed these bags with back pack straps and we include shorter straps at the top of each bag with quick release buckles so that the bag can be vehicle mounted.

All ECTAB's come standard with padded shoulder straps.

As with all BDS Tactical Gear products, we use only 1000 Denier Cordura, heavy duty webbing, and high quality hook and loop material. All BDS Tactical Gear products are made in Oceanside, CA and carry our lifetime warranty!

Fantastic Bag by Thomas from Oregon United States
17 Apr 2014
I have only gotten to work with this bag in the field for a few days. It is fantastic, but a few simple changes would make this bag perfects. The waist straps come out of the tri-glides very easily. I'm going to have to come up with a solution to that, probably sewing them like the previous reviewer. The Shoulder straps are a little short when wearing body armor, and when fully extended, the tabs get caught in the buckles making it near impossible to adjust with gloves on. I am going to sew on some grab tabs to fix this. I with the front pockets clam shelled open, or at least further down the sides to make it easier to access the contents. The interior mesh bags are outstanding for organizing gear. I just wish that there was an option for 3 larger pouches instead of the 4 smallish ones. I removed one of my pouches, and have the other three set up as vitals, meds, and advanced airway leaving a space at the bottom for bulky items. All three pouches could be deeper or taller to accommodate their tasks better. This review highlights the negative out of proportion to the rugged elegance of this bag. I would recommend it to any medic looking for a good evac bag that is not too bulky.
Great bag/needed adjustments by Thomas from Virginia United States
15 Apr 2011
This bag is absolutely the best set up for an aid bag that I have seen in my 3 years as a Combat medic. I love the outer pouches which give quick easy access to the initial treatment supplies. The main compartment is large and has a lot of options for the individual to customise his or her set up. However there are a few adjustments that should be made. Many of the straps come appart to easily. I had to sew my kideny straps, for example, in order to keep them from coming unstrapped. Speaking of that I do love the Webbing on the kidney straps. There are some small adjustments that need to be made on the manufacturing stage but all in all this is an amazing aid bag.
