Parachute First Aid Packet (zippered)
Known as the Parachute First Aid Packet, this small kit was issued to Airmen along with their parachute and contained basic supplies to treat wounds incurred during descent or landing. The original first pattern pouch consisted of a rubberized canvas pouch closed by a zipper. Two web tapes facilitated attachment to the right lift web of the parachute harness, opposite the ripcord. The superseding second version employed a hermetically sealed design which could be torn open in an emergency
This reproduction faithfully copies the details of these incredibly rare first pattern pouches. Constructed with original rubberized canvas, the pouch is closed with the correct style nickel zipper and sewn with NOS cotton thread. Four light OD web tapes, complete with the waxed ends, allow attachment to the parachute harness. The pouch is complete with the characteristic bold “FIRST AID” lettering on both the sides.
