    I made some small boo boo kits modeled after the urban preppers videos on the topic. I keep one in every coat pocket and I like to keep one in my cargo shorts. They are very handy to have.

    The only problem is I use the small craft bags which are about 4 x 2.5 inches. They don't last very long and get beat up in my pocket so I have change them out every once in a while which isn't a big deal because I have a couple hundred on hand. However I would like to have something more durable in the same size. I don't want anything bigger because it is the perfect size for me to put in my pocket.

    I know of loksak but they don't make anything that small. Is there anything else out there?

    For your purpose, easiest thing really might be just get a bunch of Altoid tins. Or perhaps Sucret cough lozenge tins (actually a bit thicker than the Altoids). Neither is waterproof; but I find that my Altoid based FAK (aka 'boo-boo') is a very comfortable carry in my front jeans pockets or chino pockets. I don't worry about the water proof part. My pants don't get soaked in the rain -- I'll be wearing some sort of rain gear that covers the pockets anyway.

    To be on the safe side, I secure it with a 'ranger' band (just a piece of bicycle inner tube cut as a heavy duty rubber band; get discarded inner tube from your local bike shop for $0!). I ALWAYS have one in my pocket.

    Have you tried putting the loksak in a small nylon pouch as protection?
    Similar to this https://store.itstactical.com/its-zip-bag.html or the sleeve in this kit https://store.itstactical.com/its-edc-trauma-kit.html.

    I use a survival resources waterproof wallet cut in half. When cut in half it gives you two zip pouches that are 4-3/4" x 2-3/4", which is slightly bigger than what you currently use but not much. A waterproof id pouch might work as well.
    sbillard and YankeeHotelFoxtrot like this.
