    Just a little piece of advice : Do not use the rope for making a tourniqet, it can damage your skin, instead, use your triangular bandage and fold it until it has like 2 inches of surface. Keep up the good work.

    The sticks don’t go bad per’se. The reason for the venting is to prevent a build up of the volatile components of the petroleum based binders. Those sticks will last for years. I have found that Vaseline impregnated cotton balls are just as good and much cheaper. You might try some of some of the other homemade tinders such as dryer lint (with wax or Vaseline works as good as everything except wet-fire tinders). Wet Fire is the best of the bunch. Honestly, I only use my own homemade tinders now.

  4. May not be the highest quality, but better than nothing. and it is just FIRST aid, not 2nd or 3rd. In an extreme emergency situation, I agree completely. I am in NO WAY a First Aid Pro.

    never had that tinder go bad I even threw it in water to see if that would wreak it just cut a peice off and watch it still take a flame it doesnt dry out its just dry stuff and wax… works great if you have a lighter

  9. I would add some waterproof medical tape, duck tape & pain relivers.

    Replace the gloves with non latex ones. More bandages and bigger ones(5×9 ab pads are cheap). Consider adding some OTC meds.

  11. Good Call! I have seen them, I believe there are a couple different types. I have seen them online for $10-$30 depending on the type of bag. They do take up quite a bit more room, and that is why I have kept from buying it. It would be a good excuse to go back through my First aid system though.

  12. really realy good kit. i would recommend replacing the 2 emergency blankets with the ” adventure Medical” Bivy. it is like the blankets but instead it is a sleeping bag that has the reflecive side inside it and it is ultral compact. i think thay sell for like $10.00 or something like that.

  13. Excellent idea! Very useful, I will be adding that today! Thanks!

    Good Kit. I would add a tube of crazy glue…comes in handy..not just to glue broken things but you can also close cuts and minor lacerations.

    i have the same case. its cheap as heck but its gone kayaking with me several times and its held up good.

    I think that’s a good kit – yet, I would set it up in a different way. Setting up a kit of my own right now I try and break my stuff down to the real necessities of a 1st aid kit. Hence, I would most likely ditch the compass, the fire stuff and some other things. I personally like it when things are very compact, yet powerful; I don’t like bulky boxes. And I would go and order the things according to the sequence in which I most likely need the items (gloves up first and so on).
    All best

    I would recommend carrying sterile surgical gloves, so you can touch someone else bleeding. Great kit! 5 stars.

  19. Very good point. You can always sterilize a needle with a flame, but I don’t think that would work too well on the fishing line. LOL. Purel type hand sanitizer will work…even some bug sprays (that contain alcohol) Think of all the uses for something before you pack it.

    Very nice Kit

    I use the fiching line + Needle idea for stitches but, you should really get some alcohol swabs and completely sterilise the line and needle because if youve got unsterile sutures, then It can sometimes make it alot worse than just leavong the wound open

  21. It came in a kit, but you can find them cheap at most outdoor/sporting goods stores. I believe Wal-Mart carries an inexpensive compass

    Good items, I am looking for a cheap compass like that but dont know where to get it. Ideas?
