    Blow out bag, stop the bleed bag, trauma kit-What to get? How to set it up?

    I took the Stop the Bleed class and now I want to get the gear. I looked at the usual sources like North American Rescue and some others. Sure I want good stuff in case I actually have to use it. But I try to be frugal and save money where I can without compromising quality.

    Can I build a kit by cherry picking individual components and buying a pouch separately?

    I'm no EMT or other type of First Responder so airway stuff won't be included. Here are the basics I have so far:

    Gloves
    Tourniquet
    Combat Clot
    Gauze
    Chest Seal
    Garment scissors
    Israeli bandage


    I may combine my "boo boo" kit with it, if I have room and it doesn't complicate things.

    I have looked at Blue Force Gear-expensive and out of stock
    Gear bags.com for just pouches-reasonable prices
    skdtac.com-Tall Boy pouch look like it has potential
    lapolicegear

    Please educate me on what I need, don't need, things that work for you, advice, where to shop and post up pics it you want.

    I was looking for that one! I knew there was already a good thread. I actually did find that one, but it seemed to drift towards training more than product.

    Mods, don't shut this one down. The other thread is older and not really what I'm looking for.

    I'm on the hardware side right now.

    Thanks. I bookmarked the site.

    I buy my gloves there also. I was buying them a case at a time in years past. I wear gloves to do a lot of things in and around the home.

    I wasn't trying to shut down conversation here. But there may be info you needed there, that might not be here.


    If you buy stuff on Amazon, you have to be careful it's not cheap imitation stuff.

    Stopthebleed.com sells kits that have
    *CAT tourniquet
    *quikclot gauze
    *compression bandage
    The price on their site is $69

    Buying those thing ala carte on Narrescue came to $80. On the other hand NAR has other things like chest seals etc

    Greg, how big of a kit are you looking for? I have three stocked Dynamed kits available from a bulk buy a while back. Iíll have to double check which kit and contents, but itís the red mini medic bag. Iíll post them up after I double check.

    I'm definitely a convert to the ankle med kits. I use an ankle wrap I bought empty from Warrior Poet and stocked it with my own stuff. I keep it pretty basic, similar to the contents you're looking for.

    I can't say I wear it everyday (I should) but I wear it every time I shoot and have taken many training classes with it now. I have never had any trouble with it getting in the way, moving around or tripping me up when running. Works great at the range and for EDC.

    I also love not having to hang a fat IFAK off my battle belt.
    Well, I ain't always right but I've never been wrong,

    I knew you weren't. I jumped the gun and offered the mods to shut it down but when I went back to the other thread, though good reading, several pages were more about treatment and certifications, etc..

    It's all good. I appreciate your contributions.

    I'll check STB out. I didn't realize they sold stuff.

    Sounds good. I'd be interested.

    So far I'm looking at the NAR Roo M-FAK Kit, the NAR M-FAK Mini kit and ITS Tallboy

    If I'm looking at the right kit, that may be a little more than what I'm looking for. I think the gunshot trauma kit is more along the size of what I'm thinking.
