  1. Health, Fitness and First Aid
    Just as an intro... I had a "traditional" first aid kit (I think I got it from Sportsmans or Cabelas or something) and realized that, while it looked cool and nifty, in this yellow belt loop bag, was mainly a box of 3rd rate chinese specials, with no substance. So I started to do a little...

  4. Health, Fitness and First Aid
    Greetings all. I know that this is going to be a very loaded question, so I am going to try to keep it simplified. So here is the basic background. I have a background in basic life saving/first aid from military training and training as a life guard when I was younger. (Yes, CPR certified...

    !!! LONG POST ALERT !!! I'd love to have unlimited funds to buy my own completely stocked ambulance or staffed mobile surgical center, but... I've already gone ahead and put this together (perhaps foolishly) and purchased it, so I'll list everything I did get in hopes that those of you who...
  8. Health, Fitness and First Aid
    So I finally got around to rebuilding my first aid kit, and am looking for input. It's meant to be an IFAK style kit for myself and possible others within a group. The carrier is a "rip away" style pouch (the mounting kit for my patrol belt is shown but the kit can be mounted on a regular...

    The title is redundant, I know, but I got to thinkin'... I've seen all sorts of EDC Kits from Altoids Tins to small backpack and everything in between. I began pondering the whole Goldilocks & The 3 Bears Syndrome and thought "which one would be right for me?" IMHO, it'd have to have the...

  11. Health, Fitness and First Aid
    I was just about to go out and buy some supplies for my IFAK when I remembered this FAK that I bought a couple of years ago from a Roofing supplier online. So I climbed into my attic and started digging around and pulled it out. The supplier had this First Aid Kit on sale. I looked at it and...

    In looking for a First Aid Kit, I've come across of a ton of pre-packaged kits that look like they try to cover every conceivable circumstance that can be handled within the parameters of that particular kit (dependent on size/budget of course). The AOL Basic Kit I picked up is full of stuff...
