I have the full D.A.R.K. kit that stays on my battle belt. Love the pouch and the easy access to the contents (and how much they managed to put in there).

Its coming in the mail today. Excited to put it on my vest. Only problem. I have is as a police officer , putting trauma shears on the outside where ppl can grab them is an issue. I rather not give ppl a weapon to use on me.

Could always just throw the shears in your cargo pocket. Otherwise, I don't think shears are really any more dangerous than a solid pen. They are relatively blunt. Personally, I was always more concerned about the Ka-Bar TDI knife I had on my belt.

The Velcro strap that holds the shears in do hold well and I don't think it would be easy to just pull them out.
I also have a gen 3 as well as a gen 4 pouch with kits from DAM

Yeah I would definitely agree trauma shears are definitely pretty low on the list of potential weapons available for someone to grab.  I think I would be pretty happy if someone grabbed them vs say an asp, pistol, knife, etc.  That being said if you're really worried bout it I know they make folding trauma shears the fold down similar to a leatherman.

I don't think I've ever seen an IFAK that you couldn't just slip the shears into the main pouch. Not as handy that way, but definitely out of sight and reach.

Isn't the s.o.tech viper configured that way?

Got the pouch in the mail. I put my own kit together and put it in the pouch. Def no room to put the shears in the pouch it's self. I think for law enforcement that a clip/ buckle would be better for shears . I have been very close to many offenders and they would try to grab onto anything

Here's the link to the s.o.tech viper in case you still want to store the shears inside
