I just received my order last week. I picked up to 2 concealed body armor mount aid kits and a kydex holder for my CAT tourniquet. Jake has been excellent to deal with!

I have worn one of the kits for the entire week and found it very comfortable to to the point where I have forgotten it was there. I added a pocket face shield to both kits. I have had a few co-workers try it out (including one female who is about 5' tall) and everyone has found it very comfortable).

Having said that if you insist on getting your shirts tailored so they are skin tight like Ponch on CHiPS you will have difficulty wearing one.

Thanks BC, I'm glad it's working for you. So far we've gotten great feedback from all the folks who have tried it out and a huge thanks to those of you have been willing to post up here on your experiences. And a HUGE thanks again to Lndshark for working with us to put this together.

For those of you out of the loop, BC and Lndshark both picked up what we're now calling The Incognito. It's a compact trauma kit that wears on the cummerbund straps of your soft body armor. Check it out here.

I've been carrying the body armor kit now for a couple of weeks. It's smaller then a sub compact Glock and doesn't show at all in the uniform. Like mentioned above you forget it's there.

Jake was excellent to deal with and answered all my questions quickly.

Been carrying mine for a couple of weeks too. I put mine directly under my armpit (as opposed to the area shown) and it's barely noticeable. I'll try to snap a picture tonight. Thanks again for coming up with such a great concept Jake!

That looks like a good idea!

I originally strapped it to the front 1/4-side of my vest. It looked funny. My shirts are tailored (California native here ) and it looked odd. In it's new home it's hardly noticed. I'm trying to rally the troops to take an interest but many of them are the "ain't gonna happen here" types. At least the three folks on my team know I've got it, where it is and how to use the SWAT-T.

I'll snap pics tonight and post them later or tomorrow morning.

I found the front right pocket works best for me. Already have a gun under my right armpit

I carry a BUG on the upper chest portion of my vest. Just stuck it under that.

Here's a shot of the body armor kit attached to my SBA, under my left arm. I carry my BUG in my left hip pocket:

my SA/BA kit includes a large quick clot, a torniquet, and an asherman.

Tourniquet on my belt at about 8 o'clock, IBD and pocket mask in strong side cargo, Quikclot and a couple pairs of gloves on inside vest pockets (exterior carrier). If I bleed out, it will NOT be for lack of trying...

Had an officer shot last week and was able to get to his tourniquet and apply it to save his own life. He is doing well and bad guy was DRT

I had broken down and put a blowout kit together in a pouch attached to the outside of my bag, but I think I'm at least going to guy a TQ case to put on my gun belt now.

I did the same thing, carried the stuff in my bag, then stuffed in various pockets, and finally bought one of the Eleven 10 tourniquet pouches for the CAT tourniquet. SO glad I did. Between moving that onto the belt and moving the IBD and pocket mask to my cargo pocket, I'm far more comfortable, with the only "downside" that I seem to bump the steering wheel of my squad more often when I get out.

But on the plus side, and I have told EVERYONE I work with who has given me grief about carrying the stuff the same thing: it'll be with me when I or one of you needs it, instead of rolling around the trunk of the squad randomly, if it's even in there.

Long story short: buy the pouch, I'm sure it'll make life easier.
