    "I wanted to thank all of you for your dedicated work on the design of our EMS Advanced Life Support medication bag. After endless months of searching for the perfect EMS ALS medication bag, I had almost given up. But after meeting with your Tough Traveler staff I knew that I had finally found a company that could create a bag specifically for our needs. Your willingness to modify the Tough Traveler CE Bag Combo and Big Organizer made for a perfect system for our agency.... A simple thing, such as a well designed EMS bag, goes a long way toward better patient care and happier EMS staff. It would have been easy to purchase a generic bag from a faceless supply catalog, just to save a few dollars or a little bit of time. However, Tough Traveler showed us that a local business can provide a superior product. I commend you for your dedication to customer service, innovation, and quality. Thank you,"

    A Novel Way to Transport Drug Vials!

    Safely transporting small, easily-breakable vials is always a problem for the EMT. Carrying bags without individual sections for each vial may allow the delicate bottles to shift and bump into each other. Bags with individual sections are limited to an exact size and number of vials. Bags with elastic sections may cover the labels on the vials, and allow vials to slip out if jostled.

    The ZYLE has been designed with these problems in mind, with flexible foam backing and clear-vinyl-covered pockets made to accommodate a variety of numbers and sizes of vials. While we may not be able to totally eliminate problems with vials, the Zyle can help.

    Let us know if you need a different size to fit in your own first-in bag, as we offer custom sizes!
