Last Update: January 1st, 2018 An IFAK (Individual First Aid Kit) pouch is something that every soldier is given before any combat or battle. It generally contains basic medical items required during a crisis like an injury or any emergency body dysfunction and so on. But does it mean no one other than soldiers can or should use them? Absolutely not! Suppose you are on a trekking trip, what would you do in a medical emergency? An IFAK pouch is the standard solution. Of course, it can never replace proper and professional medical treatment, but in an emergency situation, a properly assorted IFAK pouch can come in super handy. Now, let’s take a look at the best IFAK pouches available in the market.

There are two types of pouches in the market, one without the medicine supply in which you have put together your own customized medicine items, another one with all the basic necessary supplies. This is because different people have different demands from these products, some just go with the pre-stocked pouches whereas others prefer to fill the pouch with their own selected items.
This pouch has a tri-fold design and is filled many pockets and loops for easy access and organization. It is an empty pouch which you get to fill up with your chosen set of medical items. I think this is one of the best IFAK bags because of its versatility.
Overall this is a great IFAK pack and I definitely suggest it! This prepackaged IFAK comes with a pretty wide range of medical products that will truly come in handy in survival situations and day to day situations alike!
This is a GSA-compliant item and all its included supplies are current USA Military issue, so I can’t exactly go into a lot of details about it. Basically, it is a very professional, highly efficient and reliable IFAK.
Each kit contains one 4” bandage, one pair of nitrile gloves (black), one CAT tourniquet, one roll of 4.5” compressed Primed gauze, one 2” roll of 3M Durapore cloth tape and one chest decompression kit.
Overall it is probably one of the highest quality IFAK pouches that I have reviewed. The higher price is well worth it because you are getting what you’re paying for, and you’ll be prepared for pretty much anything!
Although this item is only the pouch and doesn’t include anything in the inside, this allows you to pack it with exactly what you might need. Along with this, this pouch is uniquely designed to hold easily whatever you might need in an emergency situation.
Our fifth IFAK review is the Delta Provision INC. First Aid Kit, designed for military, first responders, and the outdoors! This IFAK is one of the best available purely based off the amount of supplies that are included in the pouch. It is truly designed to handle everything from cuts and bruises, to broken bones and
severe bleeding. It is MOLLE and PALS pouch compatible and it comes with 130 pieces.
Out of all the IFAK’s we have talked about today, I think this is one of my favorites, and I really suggest this one to anyone that needs a proper survival IFAK.
What the Delta Provision First Aid IFAk Includes:
Overall I thorough suggest this Delta IFAK. It comes with a huge amount of supplies that will literally keep you alive if that moment comes. This individual first aid kit comes in a compact pouch that is extremely durable and it will keep everything in place when you need it. The price tag is a little bit higher than a few other IFAK’s in our list, but for this one, the price matches the quality!
You have to keep in mind a few points before buying an IFAK pouch. Firstly, you need to decide whether you want just a pouch in which you will stock your own chosen medical items or you want one already filled with basic supplies.
Next, you have to decide on how small or big you want your IFAK to be, keeping in mind your requirements and the place where you would keep or attach it.
Other points to be considered are its durability, efficiency, built-up material, water-resistance, whether it is MOLLE compatible or not, whether it has Velcro on the outside or not, how many small and large compartments and loops are there and for Military purposes, whether the pouch is appropriately coloured or not and so on. At the end of the day, the best IFAK really depends on your needs, and what you want it to include. The good thing about this, is that there are many options available that you can pick and chose and customize from.
Many people prefer buying a bag-only IFAK pouch and putting together supplies of their own choice. But if you are a starter, the question arises, what items you should and should not put?
Bandage rolls of assorted sizes, gauze pads, hemorrhage control kit, cotton, few emergency pills for various general illnesses, Band-Aids, burn and pain relief ointments, clotting solutions, sterile dressings, tourniquet, medical gloves, medical scissors, and for some cases, inhaler for asthma patients, emergency syringes and saline solutions and other general fluids, and any other prescribed medications etc. could be stacked in an IFAK pouch.
I hope that by now, I have been able to offer you almost all the necessary details about an Individual First Aid Kit (IFAK). For more, you can always check online. The four products I have discussed above are the some of the most reviewed and recommended ones in the market. There are, of course, a lot of other products out there from which you can choose one to buy.

So, what are you waiting for? Go on and buy an IFAK soon and get ready to go on a long trekking or hunting trip, and in the case of emergency, you;ll be ready.
