It's a really nice bag. I'm now buying some to give to family members for home first aid kits.
We buy these for our nurses to visit patients in the field. The bags are light weight, fit the items needed and stay in good condition. Will continue to buy.
I'm very satisfied with the bag. The compartments are a bit thin for managing bulkier items but otherwise it's a great bag for my needs. I would recommend it.
Absolutely fantastic. There is literally nothing I would change with this bag. I suspect it was designed with the input of an actual nurse, because it really works in the field. My extra wide (16") scale just fits in the smaller zipper compartment, my wound care supplies (in a plastic organizer box) fits in the main compartment, my vitals stuff and glucometer in the pouched organizer with the drop down work space...and I've already forgotten what I put in the smaller end pouch, because it's stuff I don't use very often. There's room for all THREE of my BP cuffs (pediatric, adult, and thigh) in this bag, so I can always have the right size cuff without running back to my car. One slightly unusual thing I did is that instead of a Sharps container on the end, I found an airtight storage container (usually sold for pantry use) that fits in that pouch. I use it as a tiny garbage can to put dirty gloves and assorted scraps from small dressing changes. Makes me look uber-professional to not have to put things in the patient's trash, and it's tidy, odor free, and disinfectable. Most importantly, it's in its own separate zippered compartment, compliant with my state's regs for home nursing bags to have a "dirty" compartment.
great bag, well worth it
This bag is large enough for our clinician's medical supplies. Lots of room and compartments. This is just what we were looking for in a nursing bag.
I just ordered my second shoulder bag (Mark V EXL) and I'm sure hoping it is the same bag and the same exceptional quality! My first bag, alas, has developed a tear in the fabric in one place due to the fantastic number of working years on the bag - so I'm retiring it. Its over 15 years old! Two years ago a harness maker repaired the one handle that ripped out from the body of the bag - you could not even tell that it was repaired and its still in excellent shape, but for that aforementioned recent tear of fabric in one area (its a hard working / stress area on the topside of bag between the zippered openings of two compartments. Thanks so much, Hopkins, for the years of wear and good looks that your product provided me."
Just what I wanted. Plenty of room and lots of separate pockets.
When a clinician doesn't want a roller bag then this bag works well.
Love the size and quality of the bag. We use it for our home care staff and it is large enough for all of their required forms and equipment.
It has a clean side as well as soiled side. It has multiple compartments and pockets, inclduing the end pouches. It has space for everything that I should need to carry into a patinet's home. It is necessary for me to carry a bath scale, plus other medical supplies (BP cuff, stethoscope, etc), as well as patient charts, business cards, etc.
It has room for everything I need. I've had it for over a year and wouldn't think of replacing it. I love all the compartments.?
