Does anyone keep Celox or similar coagulant in their BOB FAK?

I'm going to be ordering some and a suture kit in the near future. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions or better ideas.

Amazon.

Amazon is the new ebay, minus the bidding/ buy it now BS.
You can combine stuff and do it all with one click. Or a series thereof.

Suture kits can be had, also.

I have Chinese Dragon's Blood in my first aid kit. I have packed wounds with it in the past with decent results.

It is the Sap from a Chinese Dragon tree, dried and ground into a power. It is very resinous when melted, but dry is good to start scabs forming.

I have Celox and Quik Clot. I downloaded the video from youtube on how to use them and how to clean the wound afterward so you can suture it up.

Celox is available at Ready Made Resources
http://www.readymaderesources.com/cart/index.php?act=viewCat&catId=111
35gm for $24.95 and 15gm for $18.50

I stock it in my BOB, and home kit.
It's also in the family's BOBs.
I've only had one instance where I happened upon a bad accident, and it was long before I knew anthing about blood stoppers. I wish I had it then....

The stuff can be a big help if you come across a motorcycle accident, or any wreck where people are tore up. It's not just for those of us who carry it.....
