Without a doubt CRO has continually put out incredibly well thought out and well made gear. We just had the opportunity to put the new IFAK to the test, and this is a little bit of what we thought!
First the delivery. CRO shipped the package quick, and the entire ordering process was painless. We got it incredibly quickly, but part of that is due to us being in the same state.
On to the kit itself. The kit comes ready for you to set up how YOU want it. Now this is a shift from the traditional IFAKs available, and may leave some people wondering what to do.
The laser cut panel on the inside comes with shock cord allowing you to weave the cord, and fit the items you wish.
The pouch itself is made incredibly well. The pouch is and belt is all American made, with fantastic materials and YKK zippers.
The IFAK is meant to be worn independently of a battle belt or like. Even though it is meant to be worn separate, there is still real Austria Alpin hardware on the belt. This adds to the obvious thought that went into construction.
