    I am currently using an Armadillo Drug box from North American Rescue in my med bag. this case is basically a Pelican case with Velcro attached to the inside of the case, where you place a small Velcro disk to the medication vial and stick it to inside of the pelican case ( See Image taken from North American Rescue website)
    [​IMG]

    Now I have been looking and thinking about utilising the box lid with the Velcro but inserting a Foam Cut out for the more common drugs that I am required to carry ( Morphine, Dimenhydrinate, Diphenhydramine, Epi 1:100, Narcan, to name a few commonly used meds.

    where do you people get their closed cell foam to make cut outs

    Try giving Pelican case themselves a call. If I remember right, they do sell the foam separately. There's also Kaizen Foam which seems like a good product for that as well. Bryan Black on ITS Tactical has been talking about it as he's trying it out in his rifle case. Not sure where or if you can get it in Canada though, I haven't looked yet.

    @ Outbound: I was looking on the Kaizen website last night, and was looking into the whole shipping to Canada.

    ok Kaizen is now out of the picture, shipping for one piece of foam will cost over $100 USD ( that is insane). looks like I need to go look at various craft stores in my area to see what kind of closed cell foam they have

    On the site you linked the foam is still $140 for a lot of foam. I am starting to think about picking up a cheap yoga mat and cutting that to fit

    I thought that was for just the 0340 case. If you need less foam, I bet they would sell less. The yoga mat would still be cheaper though. That's a good idea.

    I will give the yoga mat a try over the xmas Vacation. I will be able to bring my whole med bag home to pack it properly the way I want it. once I give this a try I will take some pics and post up

    As a follow up to this. I ended up being able to sign out a CTOMS drug box that already had the cut outs. Over the Xmas holidays the wife gave birth to our twins and my free time dissapeared
