    I've had a hard time finding a FAK pouch that agreed with me. The modern molle-style pouches are nicer but way too heavy. This overpriced USGI pouch houses it now.

    Contents:
    [CAT tourniquet contained in HPG Kit bag]
    Muslin bandage
    2 x 4x4 sponges
    Hand sanitizer
    Nitrile gloves
    Israeli bandage
    Roll of gauze

    Ziploc with:
    Neosporin
    Various bandaids
    Spare bic
    Sudafed
    Benadryl
    Loperamide
    Pepto
    Protonix
    Antibacterial wipes
    Tweezers

    I also usually keep a saline flush but I had to use it recently and haven't replaced it.

    This is the first aid kit that goes out with me always. Whether I'm out on a quick day hike or a few days all the way to going on vacation. It's constantly evolving and being changed to suit the trip.
    IMG_20180627_073905.jpg
    It started life as a cheapo trek 3. I like the bag. Size is good for quick trips but big enough for multi day. If I have more than 1 other person though it's a bit small. And would definitely add supplement supplies. Currently it's setup for 1-2 people for day hike or 1 person for up to a couple days.

    IMG_20180627_073831.jpg
    In it I have:
    Nitrile gloves
    Benedyl
    Aleve
    3 caps cayenne (clotting and antiseptic)
    Alcohol, iodine, and antiseptic wipes
    Bandaids various sizes
    Butterfly strips
    IV tape
    Gauze pads
    Combine dressing
    Vet wrap
    Triangle bandage
    Moleskin
    A small pair of scissors (for trimming bandages)

    Not pictured / need to replace:
    Couple yards of duct tape
    Med head tweezers
    Small penlight.

    When I'm going out further in the woods i add a couple large overnight Mach pads, roller bandage, and another roll of vet wrap.

    Bleed control and minor first aid.
    4 Bleedstop packets (wound packing granules, like celox)
    1 Israeli bandage
    2 4” gauze rolls
    1 CAT TQ (I carry a RATS on my person)

    3 Disposable ear loop masks
    1 Emergency trauma dressing
    1 Roll medical tape
    4 packets alocane burn pads
    Ibuprofen
    4 large band-aid adhesive bandages
    12 standard band-aid adhesive bandages
    5 standard water proof adhesive bandages
    4 small waterproof adhesive bandages
    3 wound wipes
    2 bite and sting pads
    1 tube neosporin

    Condor EMT pouch


    Planning on making a FAK for my belt kit. Already have 2 pouches I like for it, but working on contents. Probably less bleeding control components and more break/sprain, minor to major cuts and things like that. Possibly a RATS TQ.

    I use two kits. The first is what I call a "boo-boo kit". It's for minor injuries and OTC meds. I also carry an IFAK (US Army type) for major bleeds and to gain airway. I use two different packs.....a smaller daypack type and a larger multi-day pack. I have a boo-boo kit and IFAK for both. They are mounted on the outside of my pack for easy access. The boo-boo kit consist of a couple of 4 x 4s, large bandaids, iodine, goodys powders, shears, alcohol preps, regular bandaids, some OTCs (peto, asprin, benadryl, & imodium), and a sharpie. The IFAK is the standard one for Soldiers.....CAT, nasopharyngeal tube, nitrile gloves, tape, combat gauze, Israeli bandage, chest seal, etc..

    OK... I built two: one for the main pack and one for my smaller versipack I use for short hikes. Both bundled up in Maxpedition clothing.

    Mostly focused on light wound care and comfort items.

    Plenty of moleskin, antibiotic salve, bandaids of various sizes, gauze, butterfly tape,
    tweezers, scissors, nail clippers.
    Each has GI triangular bandage
    Larger one includes an ACE bandage as well

    Both have the usual antiseptic wipes, burn gel, prep pads, and light medications for allergy, diahrrea, and analgesics.
    Exam gloves, QTips, Dental floss

    I've also got a full blown trauma kit in the big bag that includes things beyond my skill set to use, but with me on the off chance that someone with a deeper skill set than me happens along at a critical moment.

    Still finessing the contents a bit, but feel pretty good about what I've gotten done so far.

    Here's my entry for the personal FAK... I'm not one to really take any kind of meds so I tried to just focus on wound care... Is this acceptable? Thanks.

    My FAK.

    Built into a Five Star Gear copy of a USGI medic pouch. Based around a doubled up Rescue-Essentials Minor First Aid Kit, with some extras. I added an OTC medication module, several cerasport packets, burn gel, and sting swabs.

    I'm glad I decided to do this. It gave me the reason to go through this kit, and found a few recently expired medications (expired this month). Time to reorder!

    In all seriousness, for those looking for medical/first aid supplies, Rescue Essentials is my go-to resource for all levels of care.

    My submission for personal FAK:

    BE530392-532D-444F-88F4-48362589AE40.jpeg

    I decided to upgrade my FAK to include more items. I usually have some band aids and stuff like that.
    I now have a burn care kit, Pepsid AC in case I have an allergic reaction to a sting, some ibuprofen, lip balm, different antiseptic wipes and more gauze, oh, and more band aids...:)

    It all fits in this pouch with room to spare.

    That's the first use I've seen in a personal first aid kit of Pepcid AC for allergic reactions; not many people realize famotidine is actually an antihistamine. I like it!

    Leuko tape, a clotting agent, tourniquet, antibiotic, piece of cloth and you have a basic PFAK / trauma kit.

    I have a small basic FAK in a ziploc bag which I keep on me and a larger FAK for my pack.
    My small FAK just has some plasters (band aids), a bandage, paracetamol, some now woven sterile sponges, a whistle, some inntertube (for a fire starter) and a lighter.
    My larger FAK has bandages, a triangular bandage, plasters, medical tape, scissors, tweezers, alcohol and cleansing wipes, eye and wound wash, adhesive dressings, paracetamol, ibuprofen, gauze, notebook and pencil, safety pins, and a pair of gloves.

    Everything I need and nothing that exceeds my expertise.
    Iv'e used superglue a number of times to seal myself up and I'm happy with how it works!
    Gauze is for stopping bleeding, alcohol for cleaning the wound. Then either the superglue or bandaids depending on the severity. If I need anything more than that, I messed up.

    I carry a 16x magnifying lens which might be useful along side the tweezers. They are mostly for getting rid of splinters I'd think. Ticks maybe, but I like to burn the ticks so they let go and you don't run a chance of ripping off their heads.
    Ah, and I found a roll of some waterproof foam tape that's like moleskin, just thinner than I remember. I cut a few strips and put them on waxed paper.

    I was thinking of medications, but I really don't ever take them at home either unless I have a bad cold.

    Here is my Fist Aid Kit. It has a number of basic supplies in addition, it has a roll of saran Wrap which makes great occlusive dressing and even a conventional dressing that you can see through to monitor the injury. I have also added potassium permanganate which can be used for a disinfectant, or to make water potable. Since I have pot perm, I have added glycerin which combined, can be used to start a fire.
