    I had a full medical kit with saline wound wash, gause, bandages, disinfectant, needle, thread ALL that. I had it under the seat in my BOV and when I got in that crash, it never crossed my mind that it was right under me within arms reach while I was bleeding out. Made me rethink the whole thing.

    Re: BOB medical supplies

    Hello there! Not sure if anyone has answered your quikclot question yet, but just so you know the Quickclot powder is no longer used. They now make Quickclot combat gauze's. If for some reason you end up getting the powder version DO NOT use it. Its too messy and can cause serious burns if it gets into your eyes. The Air Force no longer uses the powder form due to it causing more harm then good. If you get the gauzes it pretty much does the same thing except its safer and cleaner. All you have to do is pack the gauze into the wound and it will stop the bleeding. http://www.lapolicegear.com/qucoga.html is a nice site to buy from. Most other places you need a medical order form. So my best suggestion is to look around on ebay or amazon and try and find a better price. Hope this answers your question.

    Maxi pads are better than band aids. Really absorbent and bigger. Add a few in there. I have a few in my first aid kits. I'm a guy btw.

    Re: BOB medical supplies

    A lot of factors go in to planning a medical kit, size being the prevailing factor, but ultimately first aid kits are deemed to basic by most in our positions because we are planning for events that just don't happen everyday and therefore need more stuff, so all you can really do is make a list of everything you think that TSHTF could do to you in your are of the world, and buy everything that fixes everything on your list, best I can think of.

    No expert but I'd stay away from the prepackaged medical kits. Been my experience that they are chock full of substandard and overpriced crap. Find a good list of must haves and nice to haves then get the must haves. If you need this kit long term keep in mind that your sanitary situation and having access to clean water may be lacking. GI issues are a bitch in the field. The likelihood of getting dysentery is higher than a GSW (in my humble opinion anyway).

    I agree I've made my own and it's far better
