    lot of off the shelf kit are just basic items. The Advaced kit can get costly and depends on the individuals training.. I made a kit for my wife's classroom. She don't know how to use 80% of the items in it. I told her just hand it to a First Responder. The kit has items for gun shot or stabbing more than I have a cut on my finger. I sure miss working and the supply locker.

    If you wind up doing a pack design keep it modular like the survival kit. Love how effortless it is to attach to larger packs, ATVs, etc.

    Also, make sure to have a cravat. People always want to know why I wear one all the time in the woods.

    The new Vanquest Möbius 2.0 came in. I swapped out things from the Vanquest pouch to it. I'll have to play with it to get everything in it the way I want to. This general idea.
    Stuff from pouch which is built in to the bag now.

    I'm sure have to play with items here and there get it like I want but it's a start. I really like the new design and a little bigger bag. I will be able to tell how really like it after get some more items and CCW setup. So I'm liking it.

    That looks really well thought out, Doug. Looks like you have everything you need in there, and nothing you don't. Showing off some experience I see. ;)

    I put my chest seals in brother unit kit and wife's classroom. I have a couple more coming. I can make do with making one for now. I'm sure I'll rearrange it few time before I'm happy with it. Time will tell.

    Same reason I didn't worry about chest seals right away. With all the plastic bags and extra gloves in my bag I can come up with something.

    In the deepest part of the well
    Tools, spares and miscellaneous crap:

    Compact BVM, Izzys, duct tape, coban, combat gauze, etc..

    The ever important cric kit. I keep a serpent strap taped to it. Its crazy its not part of the kit!
    [​IMG]

    Burn kit good for up to 20% BSA:
    [​IMG]

    I keep hard SAM splints in another pouch; these things pad, they do not immobilize. I think a lot of people are mislead when they buy them and then find out they are flimsy. You want the aluminum rolled splint material!:
    [​IMG]

    I only carry bling stick airway. King's iGel, SALT-guided ETT, etc.. No scope needed. Do your airway skills a solid and practice blindfolded, tactile intubation in the largest variety of ways you are able to. I mean digital orotracheal, blind stick supra-glottic, etc. all by feel.

    Aid pack gets dropped at the front door. Drop leg anything sucks after you wear it for ten minutes so I normally keep a sling folded up and attached to the ifak so I can just loop it over my grape. Standard TCCC load for the ifak.
    [​IMG]

    I keep a separate small bag with locks and 2x 500 ml salines. If I have to give fluids before the EMS guys get in, its deep **** time. I don't carry a ton of meds for that reason either. Different loadouts for wilderness/camp use.

    Those are some great kits. As I look at them I realize how little first aid training I really have since I don't know what half that stuff is used for.

    Is it possible you're better off not knowing what you don't know?

    Worked on a couple of mine this weekend. One for my work vehicle and one for the wife's. Still adding to them.

    Where to you guys source your quality supplies? Need to pick up a tourniquet and some quik clot and Israeli bandages.

    Nice overland kit Dave. You have more gear than most EMS stations but is excellent planning due to the types of adventures you are doing.
