    A triangular bandage is a piece of dense cotton or muslin that is cut to a triangular shape (half a square on the diagonal) with the sides from 36 to 48 inches long. It is folded into a small square and put into a ziplock bag for storage. Here are some pictures of different application:

    I have one in my first aid kit, pretty compact all folded up. Lots of uses, my dad gave me this one.

    I think the triangle bandages are useful to have, but it's far from the only thing to have or most important. Wound care is the most likely need to me. Basic cuts that can get infected and need cleaning and closer. Punctures and cuts that can literally cause you to bleed and lose a lot of blood. If you break a bone it needs to set and splinted, and than look for further med care and supplies.

    I agree but only to a point. The triangular bandage can be used to hold a "feminine" pad over a wound with enough pressure to slow or stop the bleeding. It can be used as a tourniquet, a restrictive bandage or to hold a splint in place. In my Big medical kit I have inflatable splints, along with a lot of gear that a medic or doctor could use better than I but in a small first aid kit that triangular bandage and some smaller stuff goes a long way to making it all work. You do need steri-strips or butterfly bandages, gauze, 2x2, 4x4 and 6x6 pads along with some smaller "bandaids" as well as tape, scissors, scalpel (or small very sharp knife), tweezers and curved needles and some 10 pound test monofilament line for stitches. Add to that some antibiotic ointment, topical analgesic, a fine scrub brush to clean wounds and some soap, and any meds that you need to keep yourself alive from day to day and you have a decent start (I am sure that I have left out some important pieces but I am working from memory).
