So after a few accidents,both in the field and motor pool I've found that my issued CLS bag has a lot of extra you really don't need ,most of the time ( chest decompression needles,NPA's Israeli banadges,ect) and our IFAKS don't have enough ( that and your only supposed to uses them when you get shot or something). And with the medics not always around abd most of the first aid boxes missing stuff I went a head and started making my own lil med bag.



So far I got roll gauze,sterile gause pads,the larger size extra adhesive cloth band aids,med tap,self grip tape, Neosporin,an exaco knife with extra blades ( for lancing boils and such,with seems to happen alot in the feild)and a lighter to help with sterilization).Figure it's a good start for basic injuries but I can make stuff work good enough for more serious stuff, until I can get a medic. I've had it for about a week and it's come in pretty handy so far but still need some alcohol and a few other things.

Anyhow I was curious if anyone elese made their own insted of buying one pre made . What's in yours and why ?
Thanks !
God Bless!

I would add dramamine, peptobismal, antacids, definitely the 91% rubbing alcohol, salt, tweezers (preferably the draftmans tool variety, with the fine tip), surgical scissors, Q-tips, saline eye wash, super glue, benadryl, an analgesic and burn spray.

Get some lukotape and antibiotic cream tubes, surgical tweezers, good small scissors for your first aid kit...lukotape is the best tape for dressings, stays on no matter what.


for your ifak you should add an antibiotic cream tube, trauma shears, clotting agent(quick clot or similar) some hemostats for pinching off arteries and a few gauze pads. Israeli bandages are really good for pressure wraps and of course a cat. I would keep one of those upgraded ifaks in your everyday vehicle and some of the older dcu ifak molle pouches are a lot larger than the current ones. I keep 3 upgraded ifaks in my vehicle for really bad things that may happen and one in my range bag.

If you want some more info wolf message me and we can talk and I may be able to help with supplies. However one thing I saw was iodine do not put that in a first aid/airbag

Marty, you need to get that CAT out of the package and get it staged! If you need it, it'll take wayyyy to long to prepare if not.

OUtside of combat, you can do alot with peroxide and a roll of gauze and some white cloth athletic tape. a SAM splint and some basic cloth tourniquets or sterilized bandana type things. popsicle sticks for finger splints. I think the biggest injury i inflict upon myself are bad cuts, animal bites on occasion, and maybe a crushed finger. Doesnt hurt to be prepared but i wouldnt be carrying around a cspine kit or anything. I dont use iodine. Just use the peroxide to wash out cuts and stuff.

Vet Wrap 2.00 at farm store and Maxi Pads ask a few gals for donations (preferably family or good friends.)

Super glue

real scalpel again farm store handle with 10 blades aprox 5.00 you should probably not be lancing boils and such in the field but I would choose a 12 and a castrating blade i think is a 10.
Alcohol for pre wash and peroxide for after. Keep stuff very clean... There is ugly buggs and stuff out there More stuff that we have no natural immunity to than you can shake a stick at....1the Medical guys are there for a reason..

sharpie marker to time and date patients if applying tourniquets ect,,, on the forehead

well I'm doing MOB training right now so every thing I'm getting is from the PX . Again this isn't for me to take over the medics job I just wanted something to help in the situations ( bad cuts while turning wrenches has been kinda common ) we can't get to the medic ,which for some reason seems to happen a good bit.

Maxi pads are a good idea though and the sharpie, never seem to have one of ever. With the achchol should I go with a bottle or whipes ?

Yes...vet wrap. As Horn suggested.

In reading this thread earlier, that was exactly my thought too.

Vet wrap is great- sticks to itself, doesn't need a tie down, can be stretched to various pressure needed, and can be used over and over again.

I cant say how much of that Ive used on wrapping horse's legs , and anything else needed. Wrap support in a pinch for knees, large muscle groups strained in legs that need support , even in padding or tying equipment together in make shift inventions in the field.

Lots of great info on here cool

Here's the new ones we got. Everyone is required to have one and two prepped CATS on there vests at all times but again as you can tell it's just enough to do care under fire,and we're not supposed to use them other wise . That being said I am going to try to get some more shears.
( And sharing pictures of my IFAK isn't against OSPEC I checked lol )

But I guess your limited to sop.

So your going to haul all this stuff around the trap line? You would be better off hiring a nurse to ride with you. Or just buy a 1/5th of Makers Mark. LOL
