FirstSpear Emergency Response Kit, ERK Pocket 6/9

by Sean
For those of you who want a streamlined pouch for a lightweight setup, check out my second favorite medical pouch, the First Spear ERK (Emergency Response Kit) 6/9 system. Since it is a 6/9 pouch it has that sexy laser cut stretchy material that could be made from bat wings for all I know. As long as it's tough, durable, and practical, I don't get into the technicalities. The First Spear ERK is definitely all of those things; tough as nails, durable and practical. Size-wise, it is roughly 3 MOLLE strips wide, and 6 MOLLE strips high (I wear mine on my First Spear SKD Exclusive STT cummerbund, and it fits perfectly). The ERK comes in all the standard colors, but requires the purchase of an insert separately. While this sounds like a serious bummer, both items together are cheaper than the BFG TKN! (my Favorite medical pouch - and is also a staff pick by me) making the annoyance of adding two items to your cart well worthwhile. The FS ERK is meant to be worn upside down and is the only pouch I have ever mounted with that orientation. I have never had an issue with it mounted that way. It is rapidly deployable just like the BFG TKN! and functions almost exactly the same in a smaller package but cannot carry as much med gear. Different pouches for different needs, but the First Spear ERK is one well thought out and perfectly executed medical pouch.

Another FS innovation, the ERK lets you access individual medical components in an easily manipulated profile that is shallow and flat. The deployment handle actually pulls the optional compressed insert up and out of the stretch fabric pocket. This pocket can be mounted to make the direction of pull down or up. A maritime resistant plastic snap provides additional security to the activation handle.

4 of 5 Nice concept October 7, 2015
Reviewer: Raymond Roddy from Jacksonville, NC United States  
Concept is sound but it's kind of tiny and doesn't allow for much more than a pressure bandage and some Quik Clot to be stuffed in it.
