TACTICAL GEAR: Zulu RDK Carrier - Field Tested


If you are like me you probably suffer from “CTMSS” or “Carry Too Much Shit Syndrome” when it comes to loading up your kit. One of the more extreme examples of CTMSS in my case is the amount of medical supplies I carry in my IFAK (Individual First Aid Kit).

Over the years it has become ridiculously packed with medical shit I have swapped, acquired or been issued. Its been getting to the point where I probably couldn’t even fit a thermometer into it, and even worse it looked like I had a backpack hooked to the side of my chest rig.

So when the boys over at Zulu Nylon Gear sent over one of their RDK Carriers I figured this was a good a time as any to lighten my load and move some of the stuff in my IFAK into a separate pouch.

The RDK Carrier was made to fit the contents of RSKTKR Medical’s [a tactical school run by an ex-security contractor] “RSKTKR Down Kit” [a kit similar to the Army’s IFAK but with better supplies].

The RDK Carrier is a straight-forward IFAK pouch that does exactly what it is supposed to do – give you quick one handed [via a red pull handle] access to your IFAK Contents.

I especially like the simplicity of the two interior pockets, Zulu didn’t try and add any unnecessary “tactical ninja” features to them – they are just two upward opening pockets [so your shit won’t fall out when you open it] that you put your medical crap into - KISS.


After stuffing it with some of my “CTMSS” IFAK contents [from the IFAK I wear on my chest rig] I ended hooking it onto one of my Contractor BOB’s with a pair of MALICE Clips (not included) that I take along with me when I travel by land in Iraq.

The reasonable size [about 7"x4.5"x2" ] of the Zulu RDK Carrier makes it a good choice for non-tactical uses also, I am definitely going to use it as a “regular” first aid pouch [the band-aid and aspirin type of FAK] on my next boar hunting trip in Indonesia.


Like all of Zulu Nylon Gear’s kit it is sewn right here in the U.S of A [Chicago]
