The Tallboy configuration and pouch design have been in development for over a year with Haley Strategic and Zulu Nylon Gear. Taking the principles of our proven ETA Trauma Kit Pouch, we refined a few features and developed an additional horizontal mounting method.
We’re excited to release our Every Day Carry Trauma Kit today and feel it’s truly something you’ll never leave home without. No longer will you have the excuse of not being able to carry lifesaving equipment with you wherever you go!
We wanted to design a minimum bare-bones trauma kit, smaller than our ETA Trauma Kits, that would not only be comfortable enough to throw in a back pocket, but also be capable of treating the number one preventable cause of death in the field according to the TCCC; extremity hemorrhage AKA bleeding out.
The EDC Trauma Kit is literally the size of an average wallet and even smaller in some instances, especially if you carry a Costanza. It can be stuffed in a back pocket and only weights 6 ounces with the included pouch! [Read More…]
We’ve been working for some time on developing a secondary way to seal our popular ETA Trauma Kits that will allow them to fit in most double M4 magazine pouches and we’re stoked to show you what we’ve come up with!
We’ve had our new EDC Trauma Kit in development for quite awhile now and we thought it was time to unveil what we’ve been working on.
The EDC Trauma Kit is a vacuum sealed trauma kit with the essentials to stop life threatening injuries. We wanted to develop a smaller version of our ETA Trauma Kits that would still contain the essentials, yet fit just about anywhere.
It’s literally the size of a wallet, can be stuffed in a back pocket and only weights 5 ounces! [Read More…]
We just received an email this morning about our ETA Trauma Kits being used out in the field to save a life. Here’s the account of the incident from the first responder. As he states, certain details have been left off, including his name and location.
I’d like to apologize first for the lack of proper medical terminology as I’m only trained minimally and anything beyond that is self taught. Due to OPSEC I have to be brief on my story, sorry.
None the less, we were under fire, seconds felt like minutes and minutes felt like hours. Making use of rubble as cover during a rain of fire, I noticed my buddy next to me hit the ground, getting hit with what looked like two ricochet rounds. Making sure all the targets were neutralized and covered, I then rushed to my buddy to assess his injuries. [Read More…]
Yesterday my good friend Jack from The Survival Podcast asked me if I’d like to come on his show to discuss the Top Ten Tactical Skill-Sets for the Common Man. I jumped at the chance and the show we recorded yesterday is now live!
I tried to highlight many of the Skill-Set topics that we frequently discuss here on ITS Tactical and I think they all tied together well. I’d urge everyone here to spend a few minutes to check it out and hear about why we advocate having these skill-sets here on ITS.
Here’s my personal top ten list of tactical skills that everyone should make a part of their lives, specifically for those of us in a preparedness mindset.
Self Defense, Combatives and Situational Awareness
The Tactical Mindset
Let me know what you think about the show and check out the links below for more information on each of these skill-sets here on ITS. Follow this link to listen directly on TSP or find them on iTunes!
A huge thank you to Jack for having me on TSP, I really enjoyed the opportunity brother! Be sure to subscribe to TSP and follow them on Facebook and Twitter!

Today I’d like to draw your attention to an article put out by The Washington Post that I’d originally just posted to our Facebook and Twitter accounts. I feel this article is important for everyone to read, as it stresses something that’s at the core of what ITS Tactical is here for.
The Post article talks about how many of the first responders to the Tucson tragedy were equipped with a Blow Out Kit, much like our ETA Kit. Simple lifesaving equipment that was immediately put into use to triage the victims of the attack.
In no way am I trying to capitalize on the tragedy that occurred, but merely using The Post’s article as a way to illustrate how effective it was that the Pima County Sheriff’s Department deputies, who arrived first, were carrying these kits and how they saved numerous lives. [Read More…]
We’re always trying to stay up on the latest and greatest for our ETA Kits and we’ve just made some major changes that we hope you’ll like.
Included in the updates are some additions, substitutions and changes based on feedback from our readers and guys downrange using our kits.
The ETA Kit is purpose built to treat the three leading causes of death in the field; Extremity Hemorrhage, Tension Pneumothorax and Airway Obstruction. Hence the name ETA, cleverly suggest by one of our readers during our contest to rename the kit from Blowout Kit, which is a common military term for what this kit treats, blowouts!
Below we’ll get into the changes we’ve made and even have a video showing it all. [Read More…]
