M-9 Assault Medical Backpack

Tactical EMS has a number of unique challenges. A tactical medic needs to be able to operate quickly and efficiently while addressing all types of life-threatening situations. And when the SWAT team exits the vehicle and forms the stack prior to entry, they don't want to wait for the medic to get their medical bag. The M-9 Assault Medical Backpack from Tactical & Survival Specialties Inc. (TSSI) was designed by a team that includes a special operations 18D medic. Designed to be worn comfortably while sitting in a vehicle or aircraft, the M-9 holds a full complement of airway and bandaging supplies in an easy-to-see main compartment. Various straps and webbing allow you to attach any military specification MOLLE (Modular Lightweight Load-carrying Equipment) gear. The M-9 can be worn as a backpack or attached directly to your tactical body armor using a series of buckles.
