  2. Super glue is poisonous. Be very careful with it. Usually it’s not too bad getting it on your skin however if you need that to seal a wound it is getting right into your blood stream.

  3. Alcohol pads light quite well……….. love the vids

    I think the little packets of things work great for a bug out bag. not a lot of bulk.

  5. What is a good source to find replenishings for a first aid kit? Where can one find the typical pouches that are in first aid kits?

    I have done allot of wilderness first aid training, but I must stress this is a survival kit this is no replacement for carrying a well stocked first aid kit on extended or remote trips

    I’ll add a “large medical rubber band”, i don’t know the name in english -sorry- but it’s lightweight, help for “garrots” by reducing bleeding on arms/legs, poison diffusion.
    The balm in “lips-stick” is great for a skin protection, for sun and cold situation, it’s small and light weight too.

    A short show of tools; enthusiasm aside:
    *DonĀ“t take spaghnum moss unless you do not have any clean wound dressings at all.
    This could contaminate the wound
    *superglue is okay, but for superficial tissue adaptation only , glueing basically the epidermis. For injuries that are septic (dog bite..)and/or deeper and not self-adaptating in the depth of the wound bed, superglueing is a no-no.

    Super Glue is toxic to the skin. It will work however for small wounds. There is a hospital type superglue “dermabond” that is basically the same thing, but not irritating to the skin. I dont carry superglue personally, I carry duct tape, steri-strips and butterfly closures.

    No band-aids? I always have some of those. Good basic kit though.

    I would worry about the super-glue being toxic and would rather put duck tape on my skin then super-glue if push came to shove.
