The ATS Tactical Gear M9I is an Improved M9 Medical Bag. At the request of the Special Operations Community, the issue M9 bag was modified and improved. Some of the improvements include 2 more inches of depth to allow it to carry full IV bags and an additional channel of PALS webbing on the sides has been added. The variety of add-on MOLLE pouches has been greatly expanded. Also, instead of the traditional, weightier 1000 denier nylon, this version been made from the newer 500 Denier Cordura nylon fabric for very lightweight durability; the weight of this pack has been cut by a full half pound! The pack straps have been redesigned for a cleaner profile, and are easily changed or replaced. In addition to the new straps, an improved body armor mounting system is included.
The pack weighs only 2 pounds, 15.5 ounces. It measures 21.75 inches long, 13 inches wide, and 4 inches deep. The back is mesh for storage of the straps and to improve air flow, while the face has a 9 inch drag handle and three rows/5 channels of PALS webbing. ATS Tactical Gear has also included a six inch wide and 4 inch tall patch of Velcro for patches, marking tape, or agency panels. Compression straps along the bottom of the pack allow stowage of a pole-less litter. The inside of the lid is lined with a small expandable mesh pocket, as well as an 8X12 inch flat zippered pocket with a Velcro face with a removable modular instrument panel on top of it. There is another zippered mesh pocket at the bottom of the lid.
The inside of the pack features four removable mesh pockets for supply storage, and the bottom of the pack is zippered to allow access to the zippered IV bag pocket, which is also accessible from the outside of the pack. There is an 8 inch carry handle at the top of the pack.
