Introducing the Active Self Protection Ankle Kit. This kit was built out by John Correia and the rest of the team at Active Self Protection.
*NOTE: Since the above video was filmed John and his team made the decision to change the chest seals that come in this kit from the Russell Chest Seals to the North American Rescue Hyfin Compact Chest Seals.
John is an industry expert on the analysis of gunfights having studied over 30,000 of them. As a dedicated student and sought out instructor John and his team have assembled this ankle kit using the highest quality name-brand components available on the market today.
First, the kit includes the Wilderness Tactical 5″ Black Ankle Cuff. Made in the USA, the Ankle Cuff includes several pockets and a universal fit design to ensure it can be worn by anyone regardless of their size.
1 TacMed SOF Tourniquet. The SOF® Tourniquet Gen 4 is approved for use by the Department of Defense, approved for use by the Committee on Tactical Combat Casualty Care, and the tourniquet of choice for the American Red Cross. It folds perfectly to fit into the ankle cuff and is one of the most respected TQs in the world.
1 H&H Mini Pressure Bandage. This fast and effective tool can be used for many kinds of traumas and injuries (particularly those involving arterial bleeding in extremities). The H&H Mini Compression Bandage comes in a sterile, vacuum-sealed, 5 mil barrier bag, flat folded to create a small tight package that's less than an inch thick! Made in the USA
1 Pair of Nitrile Gloves. These are durable, non-allergenic, heavy-duty nitrile gloves designed to be easy to pack and fast to deploy. These are size Large, designed to fit an overwhelming majority of American adults. John's preference would be to include BLUE gloves however, due to COVID-19 blue gloves are extremely difficult and expensive to source. If we are unable to source blue gloves or purple gloves your kit may be stocked with Black gloves.
1 Pair of Trauma Shears. Made with quality in mind these shears have been tested to ensure they will hold up to critical medical incidents and trauma. These EMT Shears will fit in any IFAK or medical kit at only 14.5cm long.
2x North American Rescue Hyfin Compact Chest Seals. Designed with 3-vented channels that allow air to escape the chest cavity during exhalation but prevents air from entering through the injury site during inhalation. Each HyFin Vent Compact Chest Seal is 4.75” x 4.75” and made with advanced adhesive to provide a superior adhesion in the most adverse conditions, including sweaty or hairy casualties.
1 ChitoGauze (3″ x 4yd Z-Fold). HemCon® ChitoGauze® XR PRO is a revolutionary hemostatic dressing for the external, temporary control of severely bleeding wounds. This dressing features a polyester/rayon blend non-woven medical gauze that is coated with chitosan. It is Z-folded and packaged in a vacuum-sealed pouch that is compact, rugged and features Red-Tip Technology®.
