This was initial loadout for the CTOMS Main Pack or Module. I used three of the Quad Folds to make BLEEDING, BREATHING and IV/MEDS IV/MEDS packs. I used one of the four MARS Panels to secure my COMBITUBE KIT and OPA set to the lid of the Main Pack. Also, mounted there were two extra CAT TQs, folded a little different than the instructions, the Velcro of the lid secure them in place. On the outside of the lid of the Main Pack is a zipper pocket. I stored my HLZ marker, and CCP kit there.
I carried enough TQs in my CTOMS First Line and every soldier had, at least, one and full IFAK. So, I did not carry any in my BLEEDING kit. It was packed in a CTOMS Quad Fold Insert in a manner were the more serious interventions were at the bottom. This way I could have access to the kit I would need the majority of the time first and work down to my worst case med supplies.
From the bottom up:
|Oral Medications carried in Main Module. |
There was a strip of hook velcro on
the back of the box to keep it secure.
|CTOMS 2nd Line Main Module with External Module attached.|
This is an excellent feature of the CTOMS Bag. Finally, I could bring snivel kit without taking supplies out of my bag. Before that, I just embraced the suck.
The CTOMS 2nd Line System is a robust, modular and scalable answer for the modern combat medic. The purchase can be tailored to your mission by using the CTOMS Product Wizards. So, rather than buying a stock kit. You can purchase only the accessories and loadout required. It is available in Scorched Earth, Mud Hut, Benning Green and, of course, MultiCam.
