While the availability of contemporary Every Day Carry (EDC) gear expands, the options to organize and even compartmentalize have not. The Ankle IFAK/Cargo Cuff is based on the wraparound band of our Renegade Ankle Holster and designed in collaboration with US Palm. It expands your on-body gear-carrying capacity to a new level. During travel abroad, relocating high-value items from the places they’re normally expected, pickpockets, thieves, and other extortionists are thwarted. If the occasion requires formal dress, jingling pockets full of gear is a no-go, but rapid access is still necessary. In today’s more security-conscious climate, while cursory searches and inspections regularly restrict access while possessing EDC gear, ankles are an often overlooked area of a search. It is also a great platform to use as an ankle IFAK for compact trauma medical items.
Made of our XHD elastic webbing, the Ankle IFAK/Cargo Cuff has 5 main storage cells and a 6th compact slip-pocket. Avaiable in 4" or 5" band height (5" shown). Designed with a wide range of adjustment, one size will comfortably fit nearly everyone. An additional field of loop material is stitched to the interior surface to create comfortable friction to keep the cuff in position. An optional pair of high-security retention straps with Velcro closures are available as an option.

Our Ankle IFAK comes empty because what you choose to carry in it should be based on your own circumstances, needs, experiences, and training. We recommend The Tactical Medic for supplies.
One of the most commonly overlooked categories of Every Day Carry (EDC) gear is emergency medical supplies. You carry a handgun, reload, knife, light, multitool, and various other items, few of which will do much to keep all ten pints of blood right where it needs to stay. The inconvenience usually stems from the size and bulk of proper medical gear. Enter the Ankle IFAK. Built on our Ankle Cargo Cuff, we designed the Ankle IFAK to carry a tourniquet (TK-4L, flat-folded SOFTT-W, CAT, SWAT-T), clotting agent, trauma bandage, nitrile gloves, chest sealing medic tape, and more, all in a comfortable HD elastic webbing ankle cuff. With 6 storage cells stitched into the cuff, you can increase your level of emergency self-reliance without awkwardly stuffing your pockets full.
Add our Cuff Duffel carrier for those times you can't wear the Ankle IFAK, but want it with you in the car or a backpack, with room for added supplies.
Liked it so much I bought two
The Wilderness Tactical Ankle IFAK has more pockets that most in the market and are nice and thin to not add bulk and print. Of course skinny jeans probably won’t work but boot cut jeans or 5.11 Tactical pants work fine.
Here’s what’s in mine:
1 - C.A.T Tourniquet
2 - NAR Hyfin Vented Chest Seals
1- Quik Clot Combat Gauze
1 - H&H Mini Compression Bandage
1- H&H Flat Compressed Gauze
2 - Sets Medical Gloves
1 - Mini CPR mask
After finding out how comfortable it was to wear I decided to buy another and set it up the same, because Hey, why not, I have two legs, and more supplies the better, especially in an active shooter situation where there is multiple casualties. Also, there are times were another TQ is needed to stop bleeding at the same wound.
I wear both IFAK’s every time I leave the house, and even at the house if I’m working in the back acre.
I would of gave it 5 stars if only they would have made small straps to prevent items like the CAT TQ from walking out of the pocket. As it is I use pony tail type hair bands to keep everyone in place. It works but it may cost me time should the hair band get tangled up in the TQ. Even better then adding straps would be to make the pockets longer so the CAT TQ would have enough elastic band to hold it, and it would allow more space to double stack in the other pockets like I do with my small package of Combat Gauze and gloves on the current model.
I would recommend going with the non-modular ankle IFAK as is be afraid that the modular one would add bulk that this one does not. In fact it’s what sets this one apart from most of the competition.
.....now if they would only make a tall pouch to fit the CAT TQ for pocket or belt carry. The ones they have work fine for the SOF-T TQ’s but are too short for the CAT TQ’s. (Hint, Hint)
In this cuff I daily carry a Vented Hyfin,Mini H&H,4" Israeli bandage, Combat gauze, C.A.T., Nasopharngeal airway, Med shears, Survival rescue blanket and 2 pairs of gloves. It's full but still has a little room.
There isn't a better made Ankle Cuff made for any amount of money than this!
