    My daily FAK

    Sorry I meant to write something too.

    The pouch is a Condor EMT Rip away in multicam. I prefer to use multicam pouches inside my GR1 because it makes them easier to locate in the dark. Zipper pulls have been replaced with orange paracord.

    Jammed in the exterior MOLLE is a Sharpie marker and some cheap EMT shears.

    Inside there is all the usual goodies, including black tape, medical tape and duct tape, two Israeli bandages, nitrile gloves, wipes, plasters, meds, face shield and a couple of bandages.

    In my main pack I always carry a TQ and another Israeli bandage in the front pocket so they are easier to get to in an emergency.

    While this kit is primarily meant for me I do tend to let others use the painkillers or plasters, but I always make sure to restock.

    London has seen several terrorist attacks over the last year, and just this afternoon a 19 year old boy was stabbed to death around the corner from my house, I figure if I ever do have to use this it is most likely to be for some kind of knife wound...

    Edc kit, ITS Fatboy, SOF wide tq on one side, epi-pen on the other side, 2 x npa, Celox Ribbon, Combat Gauze, Hyfin twin chest seal, sharpie, glow stick, ARS needle, Israeli T3 bandage, gauze.
    Naloxone and needle/nasal kit in the black maxpedition pouch.

    Main thought behind current design is GSW/stab wounds and heroine. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    yes, its a huge problem where im at, we have more people dying from OD than car accidents right now. We even have people shooting up just outside the doors at the hospital I work at.

    I round on a drug rehab unit, and it's problematic just about everywhere in the US.

    Having said that, I'm not taking it upon myself to accept the overdose "victims" as patients when I'm off. Proceed safely, my friend.

    Sorry if it makes me sound cold but if they are that bold then they should be let go, not encouraged to continue. Like this whole Tide Pod Challenge garbage.

    Play stupid games win stupid prizes.

    I just ordered the smaller version of this pouch called the "lite" in attempt to save some space in my EDC bag. Although I've got a sweet IFAK, it is admittedly a bit much for EDC use. I'm going to try to pair it with my ITS Tactical EDC trauma kit and a Hyfin Compact chest seal, and if it isn't too bulky I'll throw in an Israeli bandage.

    Also, I just received a pair of those Gainwell shears in the mail from Amazon.

    Are plasters "British" for Band-Aids?

    I've had a look and this seems like a good kit. I am unsure about some dressings at times, I very much believe that kerlix and duct tape should feature more in people's IFAKs

    I switched up some of the gear in my household FAK. This isn't a trauma kit, just a basic FAK. It's a condor rip-away (possibly the lite, I can't remember). It's pretty bulky but that's not a problem as it just hangs out on the shelf by my desk.

    Overview:

    [​IMG]

    The right is loosely bleeding, the centre loosely sprains and the left in minor injuries, tools and whatever else doesn't fit well in the other two.

    Right side:
    [​IMG]

    Sterile Swabs
    Non-Sterile Swabs in a zip-loc
    Assorted Dressings
    10x10 Burn Dressing
    H&H Compressed Gauze with tape added to make it easier to open
    3 Pairs Gloves, 2 S, 1 L. They are labelled but it didn't show up well on camera
    Pen with pupil light


    Centre:
    [​IMG]

    Micropore Tape
    Triangular Bandage
    SWAT Tourniquet
    CPR Shield
    2 7.5cm Crepe bandages
    1 7.5cm Dressing Bandage
    1 5cm Dressing Bandage


    Left/Netted Section

    [​IMG]

    2 Finger Splints
    20 Steri-Strips
    Instant Ice Pack
    Scissors
    Plasters/Band-aids
    Tweezers
    Anti-histamine Cream
    Fresnel Lens
    Anti-septic Cream

    The other zip-loc in this section contains:
    Wound cleaning wipes
    Alcohol wipes
    Iodine stick
    Blister plasters
    Safety pins
    Burn gel


    As I said, this kit is just for minor injuries. The SWAT used to be for pocket carry but I replaced it with the RATS so I threw it in here. I do have a dedicated trauma kit elsewhere.
