im wanting to but my self a medical kit, im looking more for a survival type one, i would like it to be waterproof, but i would want the items to range from being able to get a hook out of somebody's hand, to closing a wound by a knife accident, or just simply stopping an upset stomach. any help would be great

You're better off putting one together yourself, than buying a premade kit. Not only will it cost you less, but you can customize it for your needs. You'll find a lot more information on this in the health, fitness and first aid forum on this site.

I have to agree with MikeK. Make your own. That way you can customize it to your needs and skill lvl. Amazon and Ebay often have good deals on different style bags that can be used for med kits. Places like Dollar Stores, Walmart, ect. have cheap gauze and bandages. Those pre made kits never seem to give you enough of what you would use most. Homemade is the way to go. Put things in zip lock bags inside your med bag for extra protection or vacuum seal if you have the stuff to do it.

I would look at some pre-made kits online in order to get ideas for things you might not have thought of. I would also recommend you built it custom. There are plenty of sites that sell the gear, just doing a google search will yield 1000 shops that sell both kits and pieces.

The key here is to learn these skills. Learn the skill and you will know what you need.

People make the mistake of building a med kit, and like a security blanket, they feel better about their preps. This is a huge mistake. When something bad happens you will quickly realize that nothing inside the said kit is going to magically fix their problem.

It is not the bike that wins the race, it's the rider.

I agree with Comanchesniper.

Take a first aid class at least. Then you will know what you need.
Don't just get a bunch of stuff and think your ready
It don't work like that
