    In light of all the craziness occurring in/around airports lately, I just wanted to ask if anyone else carries any type of IFAK while they fly? Any problems with TSA?

    I carry a very basic kit:
    *CAT tourniquet
    *Woundstop pro 4"

    Following in a LocSak bag
    *Few gloves
    *Antiseptic ointment w q-tips
    *Electric tape and duct tape wrapped around an old gift card
    *Few OTCs, (Aleve, Day and NyQuil, lozenges)

    I thought about adding a trauma sheer, but I gotta check TSA regs.

    This on top of my regular Travel EDC:
    *Fisher bullet pen
    *Fenix LD12

    I carry an ITS tactical tall boy as well as an ITS tactical boo-boo kit plus through airport security all over the world, very often. Never had an issue

    My laptop bag TSA-friendly kit includes a CAT, Combat Gauze, chest seal, tape, gloves, NPA, and an elastic bandage. There's OTC meds and boo-boo items as well. I'd carry a compression bandage but my medical kit is already by far the bulkiest item in my laptop bag other than my laptop itself. I've chosen to not carry a decompression needle because of the TSA.

    I've had both the TSA and foreign customs give me trouble over things that were well inside the rules, but they've never even asked about these items.
