We often talk about how carrying a tourniquet is paramount if you want to increase your chances of controlling major extremity bleeding. It is also a good idea to supplement your tourniquet to expand your bleeding control capabilities. As with a tourniquet, one of the major hangups people have is the difficulty or inconvenience of carrying medical supplies. With the tourniquet, you can use the PHLster Flatpack, but, what about any additional medical supplies you are carrying?
Insert the PHLster PEW (Pocket Emergency Wallet) which is an elastic sleeve sewn into a three compartment configuration. There are two main pockets for medical items and one for gloves. The sleeve protects your supplies from exposure and damage while keeping them compact and ideal for pocket carry. The PHLster Pocket Emergency Wallet eliminates the need for bulky or inconvenient carry options while still allowing quick access to medical supplies.
When designing this for EDC applications, PHLster started from scratch and began with interviewing a number of professionals such as tactical medical instructors, medics, and first-responders. What they ended up with was a barebones EDC solution in regards to how to deal with major hemmhorage in urban or suburban environments.
The PEW is a versatile, low-profile solution that addresses all the excuses for not carrying medical supplies as a part of your Primary EDC.
