This beautifully designed kit is built to work out of while being worn by the rescuer. It has been carefully designed so that nothing “flops open” hiding access to other parts of the pack or hindering rescuer movement. The pack also does not cover up or hinder load-bearing vests, or radio chest harnesses. It also will not hide identification/ IMS vests. The POW™ pack can also be easily worn with an SCBA, making it (we think) superior to other products on the market.
Conterra helped Pioneer the START triage program with Triage belts in the early 90’s. We have done it again with the POW™ response pack. Modern thinking is moving toward “Point of Wounding Care” (POW) as an integral part of the triage/ disaster response process, especially in incidents of multiple shootings, terrorist attacks and natural disasters. If a caregiver can provide quick “Life Saving Interventions” (LSI) during the triage process, particularly bleeding control, more lives are saved. Our POW pack provides the quickly needed tools to do just that.
The POW™ pack is built to the standards that you expect from Conterra; large zippers, water-resistant Cordura, taped seams, and ergonomic shaping. The main pocket opens to reveal multiple sleeves and stacked elastic to provide instant access to tourniquets, battle dressings, clotting agents, chest seals etc. The front pocket is divided for use with chem lights, extra PPE or Stethoscope. The wings of the POW™ Pack are clearly labelled for Triage. The left wing contains a Fox 40 whistle on a lanyard (you can also stow extra gloves here). The right wing is for tape ends. After triage tape is applied, tear off an end of the tape and drop it in the wing pocket. This is much faster and more accurate than fumbling to write something down with a marker or grease pencil in an MCI environment ( Oops the tip broke, I dropped it, where was that card again?) The lower compartment of the POW™ pack carries all colours of triage tape that is accessible even when the pack is open! The bottom of the pack can carry our roll-up stretcher, a big hit in mass trainings like Urban Shield.
The POW™ Response Pack comes in EMS Blue/Black or SWAT OD Green. The POW Response Pack comes with a set of triage tape (1 Green, 1 Yellow, 1 Red, and 1 Black/White Stripe), and a Fox 40 whistle on a lanyard.
The ALS Extreme pack is a truly unique animal. It is designed to meet the needs of EMTs and Paramedics who perform in severe environments such as skiing, rappelling, riding snowmobiles, or helitack insertions.
The ALS Extreme sports six zippered compartments, including a removable top pocket, a fold away suspension system, and is built entirely from Cordura and high count Ballistic nylon.
It has ultra strong side handles, wand tunnels, and a hydration bladder sleeve. The body of the pack is very narrow to allow a full range of movement when on the rescuer's back. A truly unique feature of this pack is when accessing the main pocket, the back pockets rotate to the sides, creating a high degree of organization at your fingertips, and rotates back out of the way for transport. The main pocket zips open via huge #10 coil zippers to reveal a large compartment, completely lined with hook and loop compatible fabric (which will accept any of our MOS organizers), twin movable dividers, and a flap sporting two medium organizer pockets (you can add more). A nice feature of this pack is that the bottom end is designed for personal survival gear. By moving the divider, you can adjust just how much personal space you need, or remove the divider and use the space for medical equipment (You can also add side pockets to extend the range of your pack even further).
The fold-out suspension, coupled with a full aluminum frame, ensures a comfortable, stable ride, every time.
We absolutely guarantee that this is the best pack of its kind that you can buy.
Colours available: Yellow & Black, Tactical Black, O.D. Green, or Coyote Brown.
Volume: 4,200 cubic inches.
*Medical supplies shown are not included.
This is the medical response pack carried by one of our employees when working as dismounted medic with the Canadian Forces and he constantly raves about it.
"It rides comfortably on your back (or front when also carrying a ruck) and the fold-out side pockets allow for extreme organization of your treatment modules. The top flap can be removed and used as a stripped-down response pack (I use it to hold an IFAK and ASR kit) when the whole bag isn't required. When coupled with the Conterra velcro loops, every piece of critical kit is organized to the point that I can grab the right tool even in the dark and under pressure. I love this bag!"
