My Medic Review Video For The Recon FAK:

 

When it comes to preparedness, having a credible first aid kit (FAK) is a must. In an emergency, anything can happen. Whether you are in an isolated location or even in your home, it could take first responders a while to get to you. Having a well-rounded FAK, as well as the skills to use the contents, could mean the difference between life and death. With that being said, it makes this My Medic review all the more important.

I have reviewed various FAK and combat casualty kits in the past. The ones that have made it to my website have been good to go. Others… well, they aren’t even worth elaborating on.

Recently, I have been seeing more and more advertisements for My Medic FAK’s. But, what got me interested was noticing some of the credible companies that they were partnering up with. These were big companies as well as government agencies…

I had to find out more about these My Medic FAK’s.

I contacted My Medic and they sent me a Recon FAK to put through my review process. Right from the unboxing, they had my attention. The quality of the pack, that contained the contents of the kit, although smaller -it was on par with my higher end ruck sacks. Because of what I had seen up until that point, I was looking forward to the rest of this My Medic review.

The pack is water resistant and made from 600D. It has 3 D-rings for customization. It features Velcro panels to accommodate hook and loop accessories. It also offers a rear concealed carry pocket.

I began opening up the various compartments, there are 7 in total, I found the items to be of top quality. Because of their placement, I believe that the design team had some Real Deal experience. These weren’t just regular engineers that spent all their time in the office.

As I continued on with the My Medic review, I noticed 3 accessory compartments to add whatever I wanted to the kit. I knew exactly what would work for me as far as the contents of these extra compartments. But it all depends on your use and purposes for the FAK. Being able to personalize this FAK is another reason why so many people are adding it to their gear list.

My Medic offers (2) main options when it comes to the Recon as well as most of their FAK’s. Since this My Medic review is focused on the Recon model, I will go ahead and list the items for both of the contents options below.
