If you have the budget and minimum order size, it might be possible to spec out your own custom-designed first-in bag. But for many small services, a custom EMS bag hasnÌt been an option. But now, the new Omni BLS/ALS Total System Bag from MERET allows you to customize modules to set up the bag to meet your service needs. The main bag has multiple compartments you can lay out to carry your essentials for response and offers three ÏTS ReadyÓ (Total System) modulesÛthe Airway Intubation Tri-Fold Module, the NARKIT Drug Module and the XTRA Fill Pack ModuleÛthat can be attached to the ends of the bag. Each module has durable zippered pockets for additional storage. The bag can be carried like a briefcase, slung over the shoulder with a single strap or worn as a backpack with storable straps.


Size: 31" x 16" x 12"

Weight (loaded): 27 lbs.

Cost: $259.95 Omni BLS/ALS; $39.95 XTRA;

$59.95 NARKIT; $69.95 AIRWAY
