    I think this one depends on how large of a pack you are willing to carry on your waist, personally I like my belt packs within a 3-4 inch footprint. Anything larger than 4 inches deep sticks out into my arm space and makes pocket access difficult. That being said for a primary EDC pack or FAK the Maxpedition M1 is great, they currently don't offer it in their emergency red/grey but you can always add a medical patch if your looking to advertise that you are a medic. The M1 features molle on the rear of the pack also makes it really easy to attach to an EDC bag or backpack and the belt loop is large enough that I often just thread the shoulder strap of my Maxped fat boy through the belt loop and carry it of the rear of my bag : )

    As a FAK it opens from the top with divided areas in the main pouch but its capacity is limited by its size. It is large enough to carry most essentials but you will need to pick and choose what larger first aid implements you absolutely need to carry. I hope that helps

    I would check into camara case. There are some you can fit the basics for emergency trauma care. Since they can be attached to anything that would be a good choice and cheap.

    The prices for some items that members post on here are absolutely insane. $65.00 for an EMPTY pouch??? No thanks!! Just because it has a well know logo on it or is MOLLE compatible does NOT mean you have to spend a fortune in it.

    There is this one I actually own.http://www.mcrmedical.com/cpr-pocket-mask-combo/CB-1071-001.html?gclid=CKP-mPHnqrMCFSFyQgodXCsAzg Bought it a few years ago when I took my EMT classes. I was actually using it for my EDC FAK for a while but have since changed. You'd be surprised how much more stuff you can fit in the case with the masks still inside. with them out the room is more than sufficient. IMO it works just fine and the price isn't bad either.

    Depends on what you are doing with it. Belt-mounted foldable pouch, sounded like an LEO requirement to me. When it comes to nylon gear, especially gear designed to save your life, I have found you get what you pay for. Hand made in America helps too. The only nylon gear I trust my life to is OSOE gear.

    i was going to point that out.
    ive been looking at one for a potential tool kit.
    when you get it, id appreciate a report on how it might stack up. a big concern is whether the pockets/straps would retain tools and bits and so on.
