I don't see any preparations there for winter. What do you have for serious cold weather gear. Parka, thermal undies, layering, winter sleeping bag, ground pads. You're in Wisconsin! Criminy eh! With just the stuff you have listed you might not survive your first night out in January.

This is meant to be constructive. What are your thoughts about winter.
did i miss something? he only listed the contents of his first aid kit, not his entire bob.

SgtBooker44 First aid kits are ever changing. Yours is a great start and covers the basics. Hopefully there is a bigger bag as a main kit.

STL_Survival Thanks for the info. I ended up finding a similar designed one made by ModGear for $12 online. I'm going to order one for me to carry and one for the wife.

ryanschmidt65 100% true about the Immodium. However, there are times when its good to have it handy. I would NOT want to have a horrible upset stomach if I was on a tactical operation. Of course, I would not take Immodium for an extended period of time.

I'd add some pseudofed, Benedryl, and pepcid OTC.

Your on ZS also aren't you?
Yup, it's ok top stop the top end when you're sick and increase fluid intake, but don't plug both ends, you body is trying to get rid of something.

Lots of pepto. Yup. Figure if I dont need it somebody else will. Plus I have room for it, and with the little amount of weight/space it takes up, its unlikely I will put something else in the same spot. So why not?

Single packets are good as far as cleanliness goes. But at your home in your medicine cabinet, do you keep all of your pills individually wrapped? Or do you have bottles of pills? Personally, I have used bottles my entire life. Never had a problem. Pills would not come in bottles at all if there would be problems with sterility.

Also, yeah I'm on ZS.

ryanschmidt65 Most people will laugh at me when I say this.

Condor makes both the Nalgene and the Rip-Away EMT Pouch. They are expensive. Almost twice as expensive as OE-TECH.

Both pouches are OE-TECH brand. They are a rip off of the Condor pouches.

Back when I was REALLY into airsoft (more into real steel now) I used OE-TECH on a daily basis. They really are well built. I probably would not take them overseas on a tour, but I used OE-TECH pouches 2-3 times per week for two years and had absolutely no problem.

Btw I might add that airsoft really helps you train I need to play more.

Many stores sell OE-TECH. Airsoftgi is one of them. They are a great website for cheap pouches/web gear/patches. Great customer service.

STL_Survival If you don't mind me asking, where did you get the case for your FAK? I hit up my mil surplus store over the weekend (after seeing your kit) to get one like it, but had no luck finding anything that allowed for such organization. All the pouches I saw didn't have any dividers or pockets.

hedley I still think a hardcase like a pellican would be better protection for something that can save your life. Your kit is very nice regardless.
03-14-2010 08:43 PM
rover thats a good kit,I like the bag but mine makes a horrible noise when you pull it off your gear. i would get 2 more I.B.D.(izzy's ?) and 2 C.A.T. instead of the SWAT tourniquet,but thats just my bias talking. welcome to the addiction.

Schmid65's FAK

My FAK

Just a note, I posted this on several other forums to which I am a member. Sorry if this is a repeat.

This kit is designed to be attached to my Bug Out Bag and used for injuries sustained to myself or others WTSHTF. I placed an emphasis on OTC medications as these will most likely be in high demand. I also suspect that there will be a high amount of gun shot wounds and burn injuries.

I am not a EMT (Yet). I'm currently studying Biology in the hopes of getting into med school. Next year I am taking EMT classes. I have done quite a bit of research (thanks to these forums and several other online sources). I know how to use everything in my FAK and have practiced with spares.

I do not think my current skill level can even be compared to a certified paramedic. But I believe that do to my research and minimal training (CERT classes, ect) I believe I am better off than the average man on the street (and if that average man is a doctor, than he will have a good supply of medicine to help treat me or those close to me)

I will be posting my Bug Out Bag shortly and will post a updated link here.

Comments? Questions? Additions? I would LOVE the help. I think I have done a good job so far. Please make it better. You may save my life some day
