First Aid kits.....

What are you carrying and how and where are you carrying it?

First responders too, any ideas?

What do the rock crawler/comp rigs carry compared to the expedition/outback rigs?

PICS, pretty please

Depends on where I'm going, every spring I redo the kit. reminds me I need to start on that.


For everyday little stuff:
  • selection of band-aides
  • antibacterial ointment
  • afterbite
  • tweezers
  • hydrocortisone
  • ibuprofen
for more serious stuff.

a couple of basic ace wrap
  • gauze wrap
  • gauze pads
  • nonstick gauze pads
  • cloth tape
  • standard medical tape
  • butterfly closures strips
I also carry plenty of water and knife.

Edit: forgot to mention I also always have a cooler with ICE and some baggies

I keep a general first aid kit full time in the jeep on a roll bar mounted sh*ttybuilt first aid bag, which tears away from its velcro mount.

Usual assortment of bandaids, gauze, tape, ointments, antiseptics, alchohol pads and a chemical reactive cold pack. Then I added EMT sheers, latex gloves, cloth sling, a few quick clot sponges and celox granules for bigger bloody boo boos. Theres also a Spyderco Assist folding knife and ultra bright chem light (night time first aid - cant fix yourself in the dark) that are usually in there too.

I think im covered pretty well for a variety of common injuries that can happen every day or on the trail. Id add more if I were going deep into the woods or mountains.



Sorry for the crap photo - Spool is 550 cord, I carry lots of it, can be used for tourniquets or making splints.

^^^Good setup, but an even better jeep tag you've got there.

Filthy-beast, I notice you have some things on your list that are not part of the the kit but are needs too, the knife and baggies, clever. IH8PEPL, same thing, chem stick, paracord (2 thumbs up).

I like the rip away idea of the smittybilt. I am dedicating my glove box as a first aid storage area (CJ5=small size) but want it to be "all you need" meaning a knife and baggies are in there too so you can grab and go, no need to hunt down a knife or paracord from the tool box. Is this right thinking or is it over the top? I personally cannot have too many kives LOL or properly stored paracord (see IH8PEPL's post).

Looks like a decent setup for the most part. I like the rip away feature of the bag and the fact that it does not take up any floor space. Can you fit in a "hot pack" in there? If you carry the ice and a few bags that will suffice for the cold side.

Good job!

Got it together! It fits great and holds more than I originally thought. I updated my minor surgery kit with new sutures and fresh Articaine. Also added some quick clot and a cpr mask. The bite and sting kit are from our bug out bag, so need to get back to Bass pro shops to replace it. I put a variety of asprin/tylenol/ibuprophen and even some mucinex. Two different sizes of Steri-strips (hopefully those will work instead of sutures) and some visine. Got a thermal sleeping bag too,previously I had used the blankets but found these to act as a bag. Much more stuff too I am sure I forgot.

You can kinda see in this picture. A day kit, for easy access. And a week kit with a survival kit for emergencies. I also have two MRE's and loads of water every time I go out.
