    One of my main ‘rules’ is if you are carrying something with the potential to cut yourself severely (a knife/axe/machete etc) carry the means to treat a severe wound…

    This is my most compact first aid kit I carry and is the foundation that all my other modular medical kits grow from, it’s primary purpose is to treat a traumatic bleed but it can fulfill other useful functions as well :)

    Contents are:

    Motorbike innertube cut into a long strip for a tourniquet (Also highly flammable, can be used for cordage type purposes and can even be made into a catapult/harpoon!)
    First Field Dressing (For wound dressing, but also the pad makes for a great tinder and the cloth tape strips can be used to make char cloth or torn up for cordage)
    2 pairs disposable gloves (For hygiene, can also be used for water carrying, blow up and draw on faces as a distraction if you are treating children)
    1 pack ‘Quikclot’ (A GREAT item, but DOES NOT substitute the need for direct pressure on the wound!)

    By the way, I don’t smoke, the cigarette packet is there purely for scale!

    Excellent little kit! I always love the fact that some people carry stuff like this, it’s vitally important. Much rather save a life than have to take one.

    Real nice kit. Instead of QuikClot, I prefer Celox. Here’s more info if you’re interested.

    I also carry sutures and wound closure strips. Very useful for moderate to deep cuts. Many of my supplies are ordered through Chinook Medical Supplies.

    Hope this is helpful. Having a terrible time getting links to work on here. Can anyone offer any suggestions?
