What is the set up in the middle right above the D.O.K.?
There are chest seals peaking out from behind the CELOX-A there.
This is the big home kit. It contains basically everything you can think of, big trauma to cough sirup, paracetamol to ms contin and it's in a big, baby/child proof pelicase. When we go on holidays I don't do difficult, I just throw this one in the back of the car
My bag kit is a whole lot less, but still pretty usefull:
acid reflux tabs
tiny piece of sam-splint for fingers (jiu-jitsu-wife does need that regular)
afterbite-bug-stuff (nestosyl) (works also for days old, works longer
afterbite (works best directly after being bitten)
good stainless scissors, not the crappy ones
For big things a TAC-pack with:
N95 resp mask
CPR microshiled and
2 quick clots.
and TK4 tourniquet underneath my organizer, on the outside of my pack
It's all packed in an old pouch from sennheiser headphones:
I also have a 1150 pelicase in the car that has a bit more stuff, but it's not close by at the moment. And I have a tac-pack in my jacket and another one in my daypack.
I was able to buy the tac-packs at €10 each, which is a steal. So I bought "enough for a while" and paid €80 orso
Here's my fak,the pouch is a ITS tactical eta fatboy.
The door thing that folds out has cloth tape,ouchless tape tweezers and some gauze
The ride flap has neosporin and bandaids
the right flap has some bandaids and neosporin
The inside has some big bandaids and alcohol wipes and a non stick pad
There's some iodine pads in a seperate zip lock so they won't pop and mess everything up.
There a big burn fix dressing,6 inch battle bandage,quick clot gauze,trauma shears,wasp sting stuff and a nar cat tourniquite
The pic won't work so just imagine the above...
I have my meds in the main compartment of my bag.Tylenol,benadryl,claratin and aleve(didn't feel like looking at there generic names
That's it right now,I need to add a smaller burn cream and some asprin.I think that's all that's gonna fit in the pouch though lol.
I'm post 123 lol
I carry a G17 off body in a JanSport bag... the outer pouch has some trauma equipment... 4" Israeli bandage, SF tourniquet, QuickClot sponge, kerlix, petroleum gauze for chest wound, small amount of tape, irrigation syringe... EMT shears have replaced the electrician's scissors
I think this is kind of an interesting idea:
Can't bring myself to spend that kind of money when you don't know how its going to fit/print though. If it's uncomfortable as hell it wouldn't be doing you much good.
It Looks a lot like electronic detention ankle brace with a gps/gsm system!
This is my EDC Backpack/Belt FAK/Survival Kit: set up for people/K9's
Has enough gear to take care of most incidents while out hiking, at the very least enough to keep someone stable while someone heads for better help. We keep a more comprehensive kit in each vehicle, travel trailer & in the house but they are far to Large and bulky to carry. Ill post pictures of them later this fall once I winterize out vehicle kits.
This kit was put together to make backpacking trips (day and over night) safely while keeping weight and contents to a minimum.

FAK Packed and Loaded ready for use:
Containd in a small pack that fits in your hand. Easily attached to your pack or your belt:
im still building this one orienting it for cuts and scrapes since thats usually the injuries i sustain. so far, i got non stick gauze, wound cleaning gauze, some burn gels, tylenols, anti acid, anti diarrheal pills, condoms, chap stick, some regular bandages and 2 xeroforms. this is the FAK for my go bag. im getting butterfly bandages in the mail and self adhering bandage roll along with wound cleaning spray.
Kinda switched things up, but I took a mints tin and turned it into my mini FAK.. JR
Well after picking up a few Tazmanian Tiger tactical pouches for other uses. I kind of liked the look, feel and style of one of the pouches and have set it up for use as a FAK. Heres a quick look-see at it.
My Sheers broke the other day so now im looking for a new set. Also need to grab a FAK patch next time im in the city.
Pouch offers multiple carry option and even fits nicely inside my EDC Bag or clips on a belt or Molly system.
Really like these tactical bags from Tazmanian Tiger. Definitly worth a look if your looking for a decent pouch. Lots of different configurations and styles.
We carry two REI backpacker kits, one for each car. Carries enough material for basic first aid.
There is room to add a few more items. The shears are not professional grade but work well enough for the non professional responder like myself.
Since joining the forum, here's my "one-size fits most" FAK. I'm thinking of swapping out the 6" Israeli bandage for the 4" and adding an ACE bandage and finding some moleskin to toss in too. And 2 Z-pak dressings is probably overkill
much improve pictures, added more bandages, self adhering bandage, wound cleaner and some gauzes for cleaning and some for covering.
1 pair of gloves and butterfly bandages 2 xeroforms.
I've often wondered why people use the term OTC (over the counter) when in fact it's counter intuitive to what it's actually describing. Every time I hear OTC, I immediately start to think that it's referring to prescription medication when in fact it's describing the opposite.
One would think that medication that is being dispensed by a pharmacist would need it given to them "over the counter".
Sorry for my rant, it's just an observation.
Now back to our regularly scheduled program.
You're thinking the wrong way: otc are things I can buy without shifty behavior. So light painkillers, licorice cough sirop or bicarbonate are otc, but almost every thing else here is prescribed and you don't get a prescription when you aren't sick. So if I want to make a good travel FAK, and want have some diclofenac, hydrocortisone, codeine or heaven forbid MS Contin I need to get it under the counter. Or twist the arm of my GP.
Not a professional FAK. This is something that I keep inside my Max. pocket organizer to deal with everyday cuts and minor wound. Got a few plasters, alcohol swabs, cotton balls etc.
I run 2 types of IFAKS. Both of them are set up for my standards. I have trained with all the different types of bandages and other tactical related equipment so I have adapted my kits to those standards. As for Quick Clot I do not carry that since I have had not the need to carry it. When I did carry it expired. I buy it before I go on medical mission trips just to have. If I have not used it I leave it with the medical team on the ground for them to use it. There are supplies I keep separate from these kits. Like in my mini infection control kit and airway kit which I will post later. The first IFAK is my EDC carry one. I run H&H supplies in it since they are more compact.
My EDC IFAK:
1 Thin "H" Bandage, 1 Chest Seal, 1 Compressed Gauze, 2 Pair of Gloves, 1 TK-4L Tourniquet. I built this kit myself.
My Thigh Rig IFAK:
1 CAT Tourniquet, 1 Surefire G2 Flashlight, 1 TK-4 Tourniquet, Exam Gloves, 4 Compressed Gauze, 2 4" ETD Dressings,1 28FR NPA,1 H&H Combat Cravat,1 Burn Dressing, 1 ACS Chest Seal, 1 8X10 Trauma Pad.
Diggin' those IFAKs.
I would post mine if I could figure it out lol
