Here is a first version of a mini IFAK I threw together.
Things will probably change out later on and always evolve
I had this slim camera case from Goodwill store for $1.00. I try to stop at the thrift stores every few days, I find some nice gear there at times for cheap.
I think these cases make good cheap gray man type kits to keep in a EDC system.
Then just added some items from other kits.
rolled up semi useless but small face mask
eye drops full size - to be swapped out for 2 smaller bottles of peroxide and alcohol or iodine.
nail clippers
tweezer set
needles, safety pins
small razor
Band-aid pack with 6 or so different sizes
2- 4"x4" gauze pads
little gauze roll
big gauze roll
duct tape on card
1 pair latex gloves
medicine packet - anti-bio oint, non-asprin, motrin, benedryl, alchohol wipe, antacid
Weighs about 7 OZ.
I'd say add suture kit.
Any suggestions? appreciated.

Looks good for its use.

Looks ike a well thought out boo boo bag.

If anything, maybe add an ace, many uses, not to big.

Skip the sutures, derma bond its mo easy and doesnt have the liability/training curve.
besides the scope of the kit doesnt seem to be perminant treatment, only to get ya where you can get help.

Agreed. Good kit, but skip the sutures.

Some thoughts:
-Add some 3M Steri Strips if you want something for wound closure
-Consider sturdier scissors (they make mini trauma shears)
-What is the razor blade for?
-Do not put iodine/alcohol/H2O2 in there (waste of space/useless for 1st aid)
-Replace the clear-eyes with a little saline eyewash bottle
-More gloves
-A CPR shield (toss the face mask)
-You have some good meds in there- Add some Immodium tablets and some more Motrin
-Add a triangular bandage if it will fit.

Great start, though. My only concern is that you might get your kit stolen by someone who wants a digital camera! :P
