**RED FATPacks Arriving Late August **
Gen-2 FATPacks 7x10 improvements: (1) internal elastic holders for cylindrical items, (2) redesigned front flap organization, (3) low profile MOLLE-Air structure.
FATPack (First Aid Trauma Pack) is a series of medical packs that offer volume-maximizing storage, and instant accessibility. Access your lifesaving contents with one intuitive downward pull! Available in three sizes: 4x6, 5x8, and 7x10.
A collaboration with Ken Harper @ Prepare-1, the FATPack 7x10 is 10” (H) x 7.5” (W) x 3.5” (D). It is the perfect size for group FAK, blowout kit, or trauma-based medical kit. It can pack a full range of medical supplies from a full-size SAM splint, elastic bandages, ice packs for immobilization, to medical instruments, tourniquets, hemostats, burn treatment, pressure dressings, etc.
Elastic loops over high-viz ripstop pockets in the main compartment’s center and side flaps can secure cylindrical items (e.g. Epipen and airway tubes), saving you precious time when seconds count. Improved shock cord storage ladder on the front flap with a removable fold-out window zipper pocket (7.5” W x 5.5” H) for small items.
Exterior MOLLE/PALS provides quick access to high-priority items. A large slip pocket with MOLLE-Air structure can be used as loop ID panel for blood type or other patches. Sturdy grab handle unzips dual #8 YKK zippers and hook-and-loop fastener.
MOLLE back panel let you attach FATPack using MOLLE Sticks (*optional), or convert it to a hook-and-loop attachment using the MOHL-Air adapter panel (*optional). FATPack’s versatility will make sure your lifesaving gear goes wherever you go!

Again Thanks To Tim From The Tactical Defender On You Tube, Because Of His Review On Ibex 30 And 20 I Bought Fatpack, Very Impressive And The Best Pack Ever, It’s Like A Baby Ibex Backpack.
I have this pack in a Coyote-Tan desinge, and it's just as awsome, as the pics.
The main things, that I need, and a little more, to be there as a tactical first responder, for 1-3 people in need, I can carry it easaly in and outside this pack.
Exeption my Tq (CAT), those I wear on my veste.
And exeption my samsplints, those I have all together, on an other place.
But that's all individual.
The pack fits perfect in my daily Tasmania Tiger TT Mission-backpack, without tacking too much space away.
Best solution that I saw as now.
Very good quality.
Opens fast as hell in one move.
The costomer service was great.
Got a little trouble, cause the pack arrived without the addititional zipper pocket.
(That's why I gave only 4 stars)
I was a bit scare, because I come from Europe, and expected that I never seen my pack complete.
But the costomer service respond asap at my messages, and send me my zipper as fast they could.
Great emergency medical bag. Perfect size for a trauma bag.
After much research on medical bags and kits, I purchase all 3 FAT Pack sizes in the new Gen 2 design prior to their release date (I even saved a few bucks buying them pre-release).
I've had the bags now for about 2 months and I could not be happier. The large 7x10 is my main kit used for group outings and camping. The mid-sized 5x8 is kept in my truck while the small 4x6 is my personal kit used when I travel with work or some other private outing. I have all 3 bags loaded up with general first-aid items plus trauma essentials. I continue to be amazed at how much stuff you can shove into these while still maintaining organization and accessibility.
The quality is definitely top notch. I don't know what more could be done to improve the quality. Same with functionality, these bags are well thought out and designed. The grab handle on the top seems like a nice improvement over the previous version. I wish the 7x10 bag had external elastic loops on the sides like the 5x8 and 4x6 models. That is my only suggestion for improvement. The red Velcro loop on the grab handle is nice but I also use 2x2 Red Cross Velcro patch (purchased from Gadsden & Culpeper.com). All 3 of my bags are in Coyote Tan. I wish they were offered in Olive Drab.
It's a great pack for your First Response Kit, First-Aid, or a simple trauma pack. It's construction is very tough. YKK zippers are awesome and become easier to pull the more you break them in. Elastic banding inside for securing lots of items in so they don't move around. A personal detachable zippered sleeve for placing small loose items such as band-aids, ointments or any type of small individually pouched towelettes and like minded things.
It has a lot of room for a lot of equipment. I bought a 147 piece First Responder Kit from a medical first aid wholesale supplier online and it all fills it out quiet nicely and I'm able to add a few other things in it as well.
There's a few things about it though that are sort of annoying.
One thing I was really looking forward to was the "Two external elastic slots for holding tourniquet or shears (per side)". This feature was taken straight from there Features/Specs page for the 7x10. They are NOT elastic slots and that description should be removed from there webpage as it's misleading. They are regular Molle straps on either side. Yes they hold my shears quiet well with a hook & loop fastener to hold them securely in place. What it will not fit is my SOFTT-W tourniquet. Had there been elastic banding like they said it would have very easily fit my tourniquet. The only tourniquet I can see it holding is the RATS Tourniquet system. (Hopefully that will shed some light on that feature for those trying to build their kit out).
Another feature I don't like is that the top handle straps over the hook & loop where you place your morale patches at covering a small bit of them. The hook & loop for the morale patches could have been dropped only about an inch and your morale patches would have been in plain view for anyone to read and the handle wouldn't have been in the way.
One other thing that sort of annoys me is when it's all closed and you go to grab that top handle and perform a rip away of the front panel, the loop when pulled by the hook makes the part that's underneath as well as the top portion buckle under the pressure making it very difficult to pull the two apart. Maybe had Vanquest sewn a hard piece of ABS plastic or composite material inside each of the hook & loop it could have been a more even pull making it a lot easier to pull away the front panel.
Other than those few things the 7x10 makes for a great medical or first aid kit.
Just received mine so can't write a proper review, but the design and construction appear to be up to the usual Vanquest standards. No loose threads or crooked sewing.
7x10 will hold everything needed for a serious FAK. Fully loaded it will probably weigh a ton too.
Like the new lasercut molle...keeps things nice and tight. I first encountered this kind of molle on my Direct Action pack and it seems to hold up well. Not sure what I'd have to molle to the FATPack though. It's big enough inside.
Sewn tabs make zipping an unzipping easier. Nice detail, as are the extra velcro gear ties on the outside.
If I had a criticism it might be that the full-width velcro strip securing the pull-down flap at the top seems a bit over-engineered. Needs a mighty pull the get things moving. Could possibly be half the depth and still function well. But more is always better than too little and when broken in a bit and fully loaded may justify its size.
I was so impressed with the first generation, I decided to purchase the newer generation model. It fits the same amount of gear as the previous with the laser cut molee added as a nice touch. Gonna make sure all the family vehicles have trauma kits!
