A chunk of the TFB crew has been spending the last couple of days down in southeastern Texas at Bridle Iron South testing and running some of the newest equipment released to the gun industry. Brad from Blue Force Gear was kind enough to come down for the event and run us through some life-saving medical training as well as show us some of the newest trauma kits BFG has to offer. The three new trauma kits were teased back during TFB’s Gun Fest 2021 but have now finally been released to the Blue Force Gear store.

Blue Force Gear Releases Three New Trauma Kits
The first of the new kits is the Nano Trauma Kit. The Nano is aimed at the EDC community to drop right in your pocket or pouch. The Nano contains a hemostatic agent, a pressure wrap, and a set of gloves. This is meant to supplement the normal carry of your tourniquet along with any other life-saving gear you may save.
In response to the popular Micro Trauma Kit, some users complained that the Micro would not fit standard-sized medical components. Blue Force Gear decided to up the size of the Micro Trauma Kit with the Micro PLUS+ about 30% and can now carry full-sized (6″) pressure dressings and chest seals as opposed to the proprietary ones that came with the Micro.
Finally, the Trauma Kit SMALL is the newest addition to the Blue Force Gear Trauma Kit lineup. The Trauma Kit SMALL features two sets of gloves, hemostatic gauze, compressed gauze, a decompression needle, nasal airway, a hypothermia blanket, tape, a 6″ pressure dressing, and full-sized chest seals.
All three of the kits will be available in essentials, pro, and advanced configuration depending on the level of training you have, your budget and personal preferences. The customer can basically put together any type of kit they want and even purchase each of the pouches “A La Carte” so they can fill them out as they see fit.
