Their mission is simple: Provide the professional soldier, military contractor, law enforcement officer, responsibly armed citizen, and recreational shooter with the best possible gear to complete their objectives. Since 1999, HSGI has been doing just that, manufacturing high-quality, battle-proven, tactical-nylon soft goods. Adhering closely to this methodology, the HSGI Multi-Mission Medical Taco (M3T) is designed to provide users with a versatile, adaptable platform from which to carry and deploy an Individual First Aid Kit.
Due to the unfortunate lessons learned during the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan coupled with domestic tragedies, such as school or movie-theater shootings, medical equipment and training have been thrust to the forefront of emergency preparedness for law enforcement, military, and forward-thinking civilians. Thanks to the design influences and innovations provided by NOLATAC Training and Consulting – a firearms and defensive training organization that specializes in personal protection, small-arms instruction, and more – the HSGI M3T is fully equipped to handle the ever-changing, specialized needs of their customers.
The HSGI M3T was specifically constructed with two design criteria in mind: versatility and adaptability in mounting options and quick deployment, not only of the main, internal medical kit (or module), but also of a variety of tourniquets. Offering completely ambidextrous mounting options on PALS, MOLLE, or up to 2-inch belts, its primary features are dual-side-mounted, quick-tourniquet release pouches with pull tabs that allow for quick access and deployment, regardless of how you mount the M3T (either horizontally or vertically).
The pull tabs can be configured in a number of ways: up, down, left, or right. Once pulled, the tourniquet will jettison halfway out from the pouch, allowing for good, positive hand control of it. Additionally, the pouches can effectively defend the tourniquets from harmful UV exposure and other environmental elements.
The main, internal module can be efficiently, ambidextrously deployed by using one of the HSGI M3T’s D-rings (one located on the top, one on the bottom or on the left or right, depending on how the user chooses to position it). All necessary, medical-related supplies are contained in dual med sleds, which can easily accommodate NOLATAC Individual Trauma Kits, special-operations-equipment medical trays, or many other popular, double-magazine, form-factor kits as well. Additional specs include:
- two HSGI clips for mounting purposes are included
- an included Velcro panel can be used to apply a medical marker, if needed
- length: 6.5 inches, width: 3.25 inches (variable), depth: variable
