The SFD-Responder 2.0 ankle medical kit is for Rob Pincus the most convenient way to carry the important medical equipment he knows he should have with him all the time.
At PDN we consider a medical kit worn on the body to be an essential component of self-defense gear. The SFD-Responder 2.0 ankle medical kit is now available, and unlike some products where an “updated and improved” version means it has some minor change such as a new color, the Responder is a great product made by a company that gathered end-user feedback and made improvements to come up with an even better kit.
The SFD-Responder 2.0 ankle medical kit was designed by PDN Contributor Alessandro Padovani — but that’s not why Rob Pincus likes it. He likes it because it contains essential emergency trauma gear that is easily accessible, and the kit is comfortable to wear and low-profile.
Evaluation Period for Version 1.0
Rob wore the original SFD-Responder ankle medical kit for over 400 days, so saying that he thoroughly tested it is no exaggeration. He wore it under jeans, suits, and range pants and found it comfortable and unobtrusive.
The only problem he had with the original model of the SFD-Responder was that the slick-sided contents started to work their way out of the pouches as the pouches lost some elasticity over time.
Improved Gen 2.0
Manufacturer FrogPro has solved this problem by adding a sewn-in high-friction rubber strip to the inside of each pouch. The contents do not slip out of the pouches even during vigorous activity, yet the user can remove them with a firm tug. The rubber strip is a valuable improvement.
A medical emergency can happen at any time: while out in public, at home, or during a range training or practice session. The SFD-Responder 2.0 ankle medical kit is a convenient way to have life-saving gear on you at all times.
