Im sure this topic has been brought up before so I thought Id bring it up again. I gusee I should preface this thread by mentioning that Im not an EMT or other medical professional, Im just an edc'er. I guess when I started to EDC one of the first things that went into my bag were some bandages and Tylenol. As time went on I began to think outside of the box, "what happens if I get cut with glass or worse suffer a gunshot wound". So I invested in some QickClot products which too have evolved from grains of sand like absorbent materiel to a sponge like substance. Fast-forward to 2006, I head in to my local outdoor shop and notice they have FAK's. Being the edc noob that I was I got first FAK I layed eyes on, fast forward once again to 2010 Im now in Walgreen's picking out Butterfly Sutures, Nitrile gloves, 4x4x4x4 gauze, etc none of these items were in any FAK I purchased over the counter. So far Ive racked up $40 in supplies for my custom FAK and Im still not completed. One thing Im very happy about is that $40 has purchased enough supplies to start a FAK for my bag and start a second FAK for the house (which I dont have one). Ive got a couple of questions for edc's with FAK's do you store buy or build your own FAK. Second question is it worth the price to custom build your own FAK.
