The 5.11 3.6 First Aid Pouch has received overall reviews of 3.75 out of 5 stars. While most reviewers found that the pouch was well built and served a good purpose they noted that it needed to be a bit bigger so that it could store more items. However apart from the size most reviewers think its a great product especially with the SlickStick feature. They note that though it is not a full size first aid kit it can hold basic and essential first aid items that can prolong life in certain situations. They note that the idea behind the creation of the product is great and that the materials used are the best but that the pouch is simply too small. The disappointing size is what has caused a large variety of users to leave less than stellar reviews of the product but there are a few persons who have left all five star reviews for the product.

If you need a pouch to store a knife, marker pen, a Russell or Asherman seal, decomp needle, CAT Toruniquet, compression dressing and more this is not the pouch for you. You will have more luck storing a couple bandages and dressing sachets in their for simple personal first aid but not for tactical first aid storage where you need a lot of possible items.
