Navy Seal Corpsman Bag Packing list in 2005

SEAL Corpsman, and other medical providers use a variety of medical bags, with different configurations, for different purposes and missions.

While each bag has its' own configuration, SEAL Corpsmen usually modify the contents, to some degree, to conform to their personal preferences and mission profiles.

Demonstrated here is one off-the-shelf general purpose SEAL Corpsman bag, configured for use by a corpsman attached to Seal Team Three. 

The bag demonstrated here is not specifically manufactured for government issue, but is sold commercially. This use of civilian equipment is not unusual in the Special Operations community.
